Parker review

One of the best wines produced with the finicky Pinot Noir grape in Spain, the 2013 Acusp was sourced from vines planted in 2003 at 1,000 meters altitude in a cold region from a very cold vintage that was part fermented in the old stone pools. The wine went through malolactic and 11 months aging in new French oak barrels. Despite all that, it feels fully ripe with some creamy notes and aromas of wild berries and spices. It is still a baby and showing the effect of the élevage, as is usually the case with this wine when so young. The texture is silky, the tannins are ultra-polished and it has good acidity with quite primary flavors that are precise and clean, more Pinot Noir than Costers del Segre. A very pleasant Pinot that needs to develop more nuances in bottle. 93/100.
