Finest & Rarest Wines: Direct from Great Estates

Last May 27th, Christie’s, the world’s largest art auction house, celebrated its 250 years of auctioneering. And to mark this momentous occasion, it has offered its unparalleled auction house to launch the wine auction titled “Finest & Rarest Wines: Direct from Great Estates”.

The wines were from a select group of 84 of the world’s greatest and most prestigious producers – directly from their own reserve cellars – were offered to raise money for Red Cross – France. One of the Estates chosen to be part of the auction was Alvaro Palacios. Alvaro Palacios sent their L’Ermita 2009 Double Magnum.

At Terry’s Gourmet Store, we have the chance to carry the rare vintages of L’Ermita 2006 and 2012.

 

L’ermita 2006
Tasting notes:
100% Garnacha in 2006, L’Ermita is made from 60-100 year old vines, farmed at 15 hl/hectare and then aged for 18-19 months in new French barrels. 2006 is the first time that the wine is made exclusively from Garnacha; for me the result is surprisingly supple and approachable. In anticipation of a monolithic monster, a rock of mistanthropic certitude, one is astonished to taste a soft and wonderfully fruity wine, its tannins tightly woven, its colour gently warming and its personality far from hermitic.
Allocation: 2 bottles

 

L’ermita 2012
Tasting notes:
It is a limited, exclusive, harmonious and with an inexplicable force came. It is one of the great jewels of Spanish wine-making scene, Alvaro Palacios defines it as “The excitement of classicism”.A limited production of 1,670 bottles are made.
Very intense cherry colour. Aromas of mountain herbs, spices, ripe red fruit and toasted notes. Very tasty and spicy palate. Elegant and very fine tannins. Full in the mouth. Long finish.
