    Robert Parker, April 2004,
    Score: 96-98

    A prodigious effort, the 2001 Tirant is a 9,000-bottle cuvee made from 30% Grenache (90-100 years old), 25% Carignan (90-100 years old), 25% young vine Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah, and 10% Merlot. Fermented in large oak foudres and aged 12 months in new French oak, it will be bottled with neither fining nor filtration. Inky/purple-colored to the rim, it boasts a spectacular bouquet of blueberries, blackberries, and the region's classic crushed stone minerality. This full-throttleyet remarkably elegant 2001 possesses tremendous intensity and texture as well as layers of flavor, but comes across as not over the top, overripe, or overly heavy. The 60-second finish reveals more noticeable tannin than the other cuvees. Give it 1-2 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 10-15. The 2001 Tirant is indeed a special wine. Jordi Rotllan Torra was one of the pioneers of Priorat having founded this small estate in 1984, long before this now fashionable wine region became world renowned. Drink: 2005 - 2020

This is one of Spain’s most exciting DO zones, which underwent a winemaking revolution in the 1990s, when it began producing the world’s greatest Garnachas (aka Grenache). The DO is covered with extremely low-yielding old vines, with an average production of just 5 or 6 hl/ha. Poor stone soils make up the terraced vineyards, and the Garnachas they bear are hugely concentrated, with fulsome alcohol and fruit richness, tempered with tingling minerality.
