Parker review

The 2011 Quest could be described as a Bordeaux blend, as it’s produced with a mixture of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot and barrel-aged for one year. The nose is dominated by grassy, herbaceous notes of raspberry leaves, Italian pepper, baking spices, earth, hints of smoked meat and a core of terse, just ripe red and black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied, without the grainy tannins so common in these type of blends, with a buttery texture which makes it deceivably easy to drink. A great Atlantic, mountain red. Drink 2014-2018. Raul Bobet’s groundbreaking wines from the Pyrenees subzone of the Costers del Segre appellation, are produced in the village of Talarn at 1,000 meters altitude. The wines are named with Sanskrit words or after the places where grapes are grown. Nowadays most of the wines are fermented in the 12th century stone lagares from the property. It has to be seen to be believed. However, the process is not the most important thing, what is really important is that the results are superb. These are some of the most exciting new wines throughout Spain. And Bobet, is also responsible for the breathtaking Priorats from the Ferrer-Bobet winery, his joint venture with entrepreneur and wine nut Sergi Ferrer-Salat.
