Winemaker Notes

Moderately intense red color with purple hues. The aroma, at first appears to be closed; immidiately seduces with an unusual complexity and intensity. Initially stands a background of ripe black fruit wrapped in hardwood. As air reaches the wine, it's scent completely changes to a citric orange and floral notes that are so characteristic for this unique wine. The rose and the orange blossom fill the glass with a surprising exuberance. On the palate is it opulent, seductive and highly persistant. As in previous years, it's high concentration relies on the aroma and not on a great tannic structure. It's a wine that grows on the palate as the seconds pass. Yet another year, this wine reflects the formidable personality of centenary vines from an unmistakable region.

RP 98
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Living up to its name, the 2010 Espectacle del Montsant, sourced from three hectares of centenary Garnacha and aged in a 4,500-litre oak foudre, has a really spectacular nose, with such perfume that it feels almost like a white, with notes of lilies, rose petals, lychee, orange blossom, candied violets and blood oranges. The palate is akin to chewing into maraschino cherries, full of energy, with musky flavors, a great, persistent aftertaste lingering in your mouth for minutes. Despite its 15% alcohol, the wine feels medium-bodied and easy to drink, it makes you long for the next sip. A wine to smell for hours, as it develops and changes like a chameleon in the glass: black olives, tree bark, kirsch, fennel, orange skin, violets, malt, and smoke. A superb, world-class Garnacha: spectacular! 5,500 bottles produced. Drink now-2025.
V 93
Vinous
Deep, brilliant ruby. Mineral-accented aromas of dark berries, violet and smoky Indian spices, with a sexy floral overtone. Juicy and precise, offering sweet black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors and a bracing jolt of minerality. Closes sweet and smoky, with excellent clarity and slow-building tannins. This is one for the cellar.

Espectacle, Spain
The project is jointly owned by Réné and Isabelle Barbier, Fernando and Marta Zamora (Oenologists and teachers at University of Taragona), and Charlotte and Christopher Cannan. Espectacle is a tiny production of old vines Garnacha made by Rene Barbier, Sr. The 100 year old Garnacha vines come from a dramatic and steep vineyard. Rene refers to this vineyard as the "L'Ermita of Monsant."

This outstanding new wine comes from a single, very steep vineyard planted with over 100 year old Grenache vines. The vineyard is located at La Figuera, on the northern edge of the Montsant D.O., and looks onto the famous Montsant mountain as well as having spectacular views of the Ebro valley and even the distant Pyrenees 200 kms away. Hence the name!

Known for its bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy red wines, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

Most planted and respected is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
