2011 Alvaro Palacios L'Ermita
Quantity to Purchase:

Size=750 ml, RP[95]

"The 2011 LíErmita suffers a bit in comparison with the nearly perfect 2010. Yields in 2011 were even lower than in 2010 (and both were relatively large vintages, as there will be no more than 500 bottles of 2012 or 2013), 3.64 hectoliters per hectare. It has a riper nose than the 2010 (arenít comparisons awful?) with earthy notes of soil (beetroot?), peat, violets, ripe peach and juicy fruit flavors. Itís elegant yet powerful, ripe and with grainy tannins. It feels very organic, soil-driven, full and ripe. Today I prefer the palate to the nose. In case youíre interested in a second opinion, Alvaro Palacios himself was telling me how he prefers LíErmita 2011 over 2010, which he finds fuller. Today we disagree, but maybe in a few years our opinions might converge. Weíll see. Drink 2015-2025." - Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com (Feb 26, 2014)
