Breca

Bodegas Breca ,2010 , Spain

94 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The estate’s oldest vines are utilized for the 2010 Breca, also 100% Garnacha from vines that were planted between 1925 and 1945 in decomposed slate and gravelly clay soils. Yields were less than one ton of fruit per acre, and the wine was aged in old large French oak foudres. This is an amazing terroir of steep hillsides and ancient head-pruned vines. Black raspberry, truffle, kirsch, lavender and liquid rock-like characteristics emerge from this astonishing wine. Frankly, I was at a loss for words when I tasted it. It may be the most amazing wine I have ever tasted at this price in over three decades. The wine world is changing, and Jorge Ordonez and his associates deserve a huge amount of credit for producing something this remarkable at this price point. Consumers should fill their trunks with these beauties. Just when you think you’ve tasted the wine world’s greatest values, along comes the Bodegas Breca. Founded in 2005 by Jorge Ordonez, this bodegas has 650 acres, mostly old vine Grenache vineyards planted on hillsides at an altitude of 2,850 to 3,000 feet. All the vines were planted between 1925 and 1968, and yields average between 0.4 and one ton of fruit per acre.
