Nice to try one of these, albeit too early. White gold color. Nose of acacia, flint, citrus elements. Very tight on the palate with pure, stony flavors laced with lemon and lime plus a bit of granny apple and oak. Tartness resolved with time. Staunchly acidic and noticeably structured with mineral spine. Longer finish of white rock and fresh citrus fruit. Very impressive for a village wine. Give this some time.
Having dinner at Taberna Laredo, Doctor Castelo st. In Madrid. Aromas of sunflower seeds without husk. Feeling a little that granny closed room. That same grandmother made a nice lemonade... First sip is quite acid but becomes more accessible with time.
Cenita rica en Taberna Latedo de Madrid. Pipas de girasol sin cáscara Un poco de habitación de abuela Limonada de esa misma abuela Boca muy ácida al primer sorbo después más accesible Acompaña un revuelto de erizos y unas láminas de anguila y sardina con burrata, tomate y aceituna.
oh my lord, so much acidity and minerality. It's basically flying out of the glass. If there was ever a wine where you can understand how vibrant a wine is off the nose this would be it. The acidity is piercing and the tension of fruit and minerality is on a high wire act that just teeters at the line of being enamel shredding. Right now the acidity is so high toned that even with 2 hours the fruit still played second fiddle, but the structure on it, so broad and so defined you know it's going go years and has it's best days ahead of it. I think 2010 (from the limited village/1er I've had) are going to be INCREDIBLE wines.
