“The 2014 Els Escurçons showed quite similar to the 2013. This wine is not matured in barrel, it's only aged in amphora and glass demijohns. The 2014 was bottled a little earlier than the 2013. This Garnacha vineyard is one of the highest in Priorat, located at 550-600 meters altitude, and is consistently harvested late. This is high altitude Garnacha with great freshness and potential (the wine was very recently bottled, and it might be a little closed because of the operation). This is delicate and fresh and keeps changing in the glass. At times I preferred the 2013 and then changed my mind towards 2014, and then went back to liking 2013 again... At the end of the day, they are probably at a very similar quality level. There are 3,100 bottles produced.” - 93 Points, eRobertParker.com

2013 Vintage
“It starts with that spirity touch, and then turns more into the red fruit and flower spectrum of aromas. There is very good freshness, an elegant palate with very fine tannins and a silkiness you don't often find in Priorat. There was a fire in this high altitude vineyard in 2015, and they were telling me that during fermentation you could really feel a smoky note in the wine, so I'm not surprised to find the aromas of the wild plants in the wine here, too. This vineyard, which is relatively young, should produce better and better wines as it matures. The nose shows riper and the palate reflects the freshness provided by high altitude. There are 1,500 bottles produced.” - 93+ Points, eRobertParker

“Mid crimson. Unbelievably gorgeous perfume: sweet red cherry, some dried cherry and cloves. Lifted as if slightly volatile but that makes it even more intoxicating in its aroma. This is one of those wines that I don’t want to put in my mouth because the aroma is so satisfying. Firm, ripe and more savoury on the palate but it still has the zest of sour cherry even with more ripeness and darker fruit. Smooth, firm texture. Toned but so smooth. Gorgeous and endless. Worth every penny.” - 18 Points, JancisRobinson.com
