2012 Finca Villacreces Pruno $179.52 - $24.50pcd = $13.56bc = $18.99 @ 40%... SPECIAL BUY 3cs and receive $40.80pcd = $12.14bc = $16.99 @ 40%...ONLY 11cs in stock
One of the most highly-regarded pieces of land in Ribera del Duero, the estate of Villacreces sits adjacent to Vega Sicilia along the Duero and at the center of the golden mile. There is written evidence that the first vines were planted on this estate in the 13th Century. During the 14th Century, it was run by Saint Pedro de Villacreces and, later on, with its perfect conditions for prayer and retreat, it became a monastery. In the 20th Century, the property belonged to a wealthy aristocratic family from Valladolid, who used to spend their holidays and weekends here. In the early 1970s, 40 hectares of vines were planted, which has now been increased to 60. Including a 200-year-old forest, the estate comprises a total of 115 hectares.

In 2003, the Anton family – owners of a Rioja bodega and one of Spain’s most famous Michelin starred restaurants in the Basque country – purchased the estate and invested in revitalizing the property. Villacreces is situated at 2,300 feet above sea level on poor soils comprised of lime, gravel, sand and quartz which naturally keep yields low (the estate averages 1.6 tons per acre). The proximity to the Duero river helps protect the vines from anßd reduce the effects of the frosts that are common in the Ribera del Duero.

This blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon emerges from a vineyard situated adjacent to one of the famous vineyards utilized to produce Vega Sicilia, one of Spain’s greatest wines. Made from relatively old vines the 2012 is a sexy, opulent, voluptuously textured effort that spent 12 months in French oak barrels. Reminiscent of a baby Vega Secilia, it possesses a dense ruby/purple color as well as notes of high-class, unsmoked cigar tobacco, crème de cassis, licorice, graphite and spice box. Full-bodied, deep, velvety textured, lush and heady, at $20 per bottle, it is another sensational bargain from Eric Solomon. 93 Points Wine Advocate
 
2013 Casa Castillo Monastrell $122.40 - $24.50pcd = $8.56bc = $11.99 @ 40%... SPECIAL BUY 3cs receive $40.80pcd = $7.14bc = $9.99 @ 40%...53cs in stock
Well-trodden paths like Highway 29 in Napa, RN74 in Burgundy or the Mosel River in Germany are obvious vinous routes that have been signposted and gentrified over decades but not Jumilla. Parched, bleak and seemingly barren under the heat of midsummer there are only the faintest hints of civilization, usually in the form of an isolated sign, a decaying old farm house or the random fellow traveler rushing to get out of the sun. Jumilla is about roughing it, about getting to know farmers and their families and if you’re lucky being invited into their homes to share a meal. It’s a place worth getting lost in. If you’ve played your cards right, the person inviting you to Jumilla is José Maria Vicente. José Maria is a third generation owner and operator of Casa Castillo a farm that began as a rosemary plantation but one that has evolved into the preeminent estate in the DO of Jumilla. While the smell of rosemary still lingers in the air, the pale, rocky soils surrounding his house and cellar are now planted with vines and almond orchards. When José Maria’s grandfather purchased Casa Castillo in 1941 there was already a winery, cellar and some scattered vineyards on the property dating to the 1870s, established by French refugees fleeing the plight of phylloxera in their native land. In 1985 José and his father began to replant the vineyards and expand them with the goal of making wine on the property. In 1991 they bottled their first commercial vintage.

In selecting the grapes to grow on their land, they chose the indigenous Monastrell to be the primary variety. Native to the region, it was perfectly adapted to the hot, dry climate. Cabernet Sauvignon and Garnacha were selected for the more gravelly soils while Syrah is grown on more sheltered sites rich in chalk. The largest vineyard, Valle, is a hot, rocky terroir planted exclusively with head-pruned Monastrell. Val Tosca is a sloped vineyard, its white chalky soils gleaming in the sun and planted with ungrafted Syrah that José received from Jean-Louis Chave. On the slope facing Val Tosca is Las Gravas, named for its deep, gravelly soils. Soil is loosely applied here since it resembles nothing more than a pile of rocks. Las Gravas is planted with Monastrell, Cabernet Sauvignon and Garnacha. Finally there is La Solana, an ungrafted Monastrell vineyard on sandy decomposed limestone that was planted in 1942. La Solana is the source of the scarce Pie Franco which dwindles in quantity each year because while the soil is resistant to phylloxera, it is not immune. Due to the climate José Maria is able to farm his vineyards without needing chemical treatments. Everything is harvested by hand and brought promptly to the cellar for sorting and fermentation.

Yields for the 2013 Monastrell (100% Monastrell aged six months in neutral French oak barrels, concrete and foudres) were 16 to 25 hectoliters per hectare, which is about half of that permitted in Burgundy. An amazing value, this wine boasts a dense blue/purple color as well as a sumptuous nose of blueberries, blackberries, scorched earth, licorice and forest floor. Stunningly pure and medium to full-bodied with oodles of fruit, this is a remarkable value to drink until the cows come home. Consume it over the next 2-3 years. 91 Points Wine Advocate

 

Xavier – Fantastic Wines From the Southern Rhone

Xavier Vignon is a consultant for a number of top estates including Marcoux, Veneur and Raymond Usseglio. For years friends and family asked why he never ventured out and produced his own wine…well now he has. Jebb Dunnuck of The Wine Advocate was blown away by the current and new offerings – beautifully made wines, loads of fruit and texture, superb balance and classic Southern Rhone characters.

Currently available:

  • Le Petit Xavier White:
    This blend of 50% Sauvignon, 30% Picpoul and 20% Grenache Blanc, fermented and aged all in stainless steel, comes from both the Rhone and the Languedoc. Straight up delicious and quaffable, with juicy white grapefruit, citrus blossom and herbal notes, this medium-bodied, fresh and lively white is a perfect hot summer day drinker. 88 Pts Robert Parker

  • Le Petite Xavier Red:
    This Vin de France is an even split of Grenache and Syrah that was aged in stainless steel. It won’t make old bones but is delicious, textured and even an elegant effort that gives up notes of plum, violets and underbrush. 88 Pts Robert Parker

  • Cotes du Rhone
    Outstanding and loaded with character…a blend of 65% Grenache, and the rest Mouvedre and Syrah, which comes from a variety of terroirs and very old vines. Classic black cherry, raspberry, licorice, spice and earthy notes as well as medium-bodied richness. Textured, supple and long. 90 Pts Robert Parker

  • Vacqueyras
    An unusual blend of 50% Syrah, 30% Mouvedrre and 20% Grenache, most from the Plateau de Garrigue near Sarrians in Vacqueyras. This rich effort reveals lots of forest floor, roasted herb, blackberry and cassis notes as well as a hint of acacia flowers. Impeccably pure, rich and long, it should drink well for 6-8 years. 91 Pts Robert Parker

  • Gigondas
    A sleeper of the vintage, the blockbuster Gigondas is a spectacular effort from the appellation. Fashioned from 100% Grenache it exhibits a deep ruby/purple color in addition to copious amounts of concentrated red and black fruits intermixed with hints of wet rocks and spice. 92 – 94 Pts Robert Parker

  • Chateauneuf du Pape
    Richer, fuller and denser…this CDP is composed of 65% Grenache and the rest equal parts Mouvedre and Syrah. Its Dense ruby/purple color is followed by abundant notes of black fruits, licorice, lavender, Prevencal herbs as well as a meaty richness. 91+ Pts Robert Parker
