Garnacha - Old Vines Breca Calatayud
Bodegas Ordonez, Breca,
2013 - Donker, haast ondoorzichtig in het glas met aroma's van zacht cederhout en rijp donker fruit. Breca is mondvullend en toont zacht rijp fruit, kersen, wat rijpe pruim, gevolgd door kaneel, cederhout en een heel zacht pepertje. Zacht en verfijnd zijn de juiste woorden.
Over de Garnacha Breca 2010 schrijft Wine Advocate Robert Parker:
"The estate’s oldest vines are utilized for the 2010 Breca, also 100% Garnacha from vines that were planted between 1925 and 1945 in decomposed slate and gravelly clay soils. Yields were less than one ton of fruit per acre, and the wine was aged in old large French oak foudres. This is an amazing terroir of steep hillsides and ancient head-pruned vines. Black raspberry, truffle, kirsch, lavender and liquid rock-like characteristics emerge from this astonishing wine. Frankly, I was at a loss for words when I tasted it. It may be the most amazing wine I have ever tasted at this price in over three decades. The wine world is changing, and Jorge Ordonez and his associates deserve a huge amount of credit for producing something this remarkable at this price point. Consumers should fill their trunks with these beauties."
Over de Breca van 2011 schrijft Robert Parker "The 2011 Breca Garnacha from Calatayud was sensational"
Over de 2013 Magnum wordt geschreven: The Wine Advocate:
The top wine, and a real winner, is the 2013 Breca, which is aged in three-year-old French oak for 21 months prior to being bottled unfiltered. Loads of flinty mineral characteristics are present in the aromatics. The wine offers black cherry, black raspberry notes and licorice, followed by pure, medium to full-bodied ripe fruit, good acidity and a surprisingly long finish. This is another killer value.
