PerSe La Craie Gualtallary 2019

Description

The most elegant of the PerSe's wines, revealing earth, violets, wet chalk, and some spice. Complex in the mouth with a fine thread of acidity, distinctive minerality, massive length and persistence.

 

100 Parker Points, Luis Gutierrez, The Wine Advocate



" I fell in love with the 2019 La Craie as soon as I put my nose in the glass, and the wine stood out like a sore thumb in a flight with the rest of the wines from Per Se. The nose is subtle, elegant, harmonious and ethereal despite the 14.5% alcohol. This comes from the south-facing slope, the cooler exposition in the southern hemisphere and is the co-fermentation of the field blend of Malbec and Cabernet Franc; depending on the vintage, it can contain some 20% of Cabernet Franc, but they don't even know for sure because the different vintages yield differently depending on the grape. It's perfumed and floral, with the freshness of a forest, notes of graphite and an ethereal quality, not only on the nose but also on the palate, where it's only medium-bodied and has ultra-fine, elegant, fine-grained tannins. It fermented and matured in barrel for 16 months. 1,440 bottles were filled in November 2020."
