Review

Ferrer Bobet Selecció Especial is made from a selection of Carignan grapes from hundred-year-old plants, including some of the oldest vines in Priorat. Grapes grow and ripen on the hillsides of llicorella, the unique dark slate and quartz soils found only in the best Priorat plots and the key to the inimitable character of its wines. The Ferrer Bobet winery shows their deep admiration for this landscape with an extremely careful and meticulous vine-growing and winemaking process. The complexity and mineral essence of Priorat is expressed perfectly in their range of elegant, fresh and harmonious wines.

The result of a thorough selection of the best grapes, Ferrer Bobet Selecció Especial carries out its malolactic fermentation and 18-month ageing process in French oak. It then stands in the bottle for several months to improve even more before it is put on sale. The resulting wine has a perfect balance between the select ripe fruit, the creaminess from its ageing, and the amazing mineral qualities of the Priorat soil. It has an intense Picota cherry colour, and a suggestive nose with aromas of black fruits and floral and spicey hints which stand out above an always-present mineral background. Wide and enveloping in the mouth, it is a powerful, intense and flavoursome wine with a lingering and pleasantly fresh finish.

Añada 2015

Con una acidez alta y unos potentes taninos, pétreos que no verdes, sin molestar en ningún momento. Con una sensación de frutosidad muy amplia y un paso por boca realmente sorprendente conjugando la sedosidad con una elegante sequedad tánica. En retronasal de nuevo encontramos las notas arcillosas, otras frutales y un delicioso puntito tostado. Post-gusto con mucho carácter, licoroso, carnoso y con cuerpo con recuerdos acompotados de frutos negros en perfecta simbiosis con los aportes de la barrica, a roble y duelas envinadas, con un fondo mineral de mucho carácter. Muy persistente.

Inmenso

Si tenemos que hablar de un vino con mucho mucho cuerpo, mineralidad de la llicorella del Priorat en su máximo esplendor y de una exquisitez absoluta, aqui tenemos un fiel reflejo de ello.

Elegancia

Vino de color rubí, notas a café y confitura de frutos rojos. Cuerpo envolvente, mineralidad pronunciada y final muy largo. Una joya.

Notevole

Ottimo bicchiere già ora ma di sicura interessante evoluzione!! Molto polposo dal finale ancora molto fruttato!

Ferrer Bobet

Sergi Ferrer-Salat and Raül Bobet (oenologist), two friends passionate about the world and culture of wine, are the owners and driving force behind this new winery. Feeling huge respect for the wine-producing tradition long-existent in this harshly steep and craggy area called the Priorat, in southern Catalonia, Ferrer and Bobet have set out their objective for this venture: to produce a wine “which reflects with purity and harmoniously the mineral essence so inherent in these...
