FERRER BOBET

2nd March 2011 News

The 2007 releases from Ferrer Bobet dominated Wine & Spirits magazine’s recent coverage of Priorat, with the 2007 Selecció Especial earning 94 points, the highest score awarded! This is tremendous recognition for only the third vintage released by this breakout star. Even more impressive, the well-priced 2007 Priorat walked away with 92 points, making it one of the best values coming out of Spain.

Ferrer Bobet Selecció Especial 2007
“Made from a selection of old-vine carignan, this is disguised as an international style of Priorat when first poured, with scents of new oak and sweet fruit. But give it a few hours in the glass and it changes radically, revealing intense ripe cherry flavors along with a pointed acidity that accompanies the fruit from start to finish. The tannic structure is both light and firm, like a spider web made of steel thread.” 94 Wine & Spirits

“There’s an internal debate going on between this wine’s warmth of alcohol and the juiciness of its ripe fruit. A blend of carignan and garnacha, it resolves into gracious depths of sweet flavors, melting into a texture as creamy as a cappuccino. For lamb chops.” 92 Wine & Spirits
