98 Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate (February 2014)

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.

93 Josh Raynolds, Vinous (September 2013)

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.
