Bodegas Teso la Monja Alabaster 2014 75cl

100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo).

Jaargang 2013 kreeg de hoogste score in Guia Penin 2016: 98 punten! Jaargang 2014 doet daar niet voor onder: 97 punten.

Van Alabaster wordt verwacht dat het de opvolger van Termanthia zou kunnen worden (de familie EGUREN verkocht Termanthia in 2007 aan Moet & Chandon en startte in hetzelfde jaar een nieuw project: Bodegas Teso la Monja)).
De familie Eguren zet consequent haar traditie van zorgvuldigheid en kwaliteit voort. De druiven worden uitsluitend met de hand geplukt en in kleine dozen verzameld om beschadiging te vermijden. De opbrengst bedraagt 10hl/ha.

16 maanden gerijpt op Frans eiken. Uitsluitend geoogst van druivenstokken van 65 tot 100 jaar oud. Volle aromatische wijn met tonen van pruimen, zwarte bessen, kersen, mineralen, prachtige tannines en een grootse finale.

Uitermate geschikt om op te leggen. Deze wijn zal zich tenminste 20 jaar na botteling nog verder kunnen ontwikkelen.

The Wine Advocate:

"The 2014 Alabaster was sourced from the same vineyards as the 2013, and also matured in new barriques for 18 months. 2014 was a warmer and riper vintage than 2013, and these grapes were picked on September 12th with tiny yields of 9.5 hectoliters per hectare. The signature creaminess, mouthfeel and texture of the Alabaster is very evident here, with perhaps a little less structure than the Victorino from the same year. It's still marked by some toasted and smoky notes from the time in barrel, especially considering this was very recently bottled, and is the first wine that feels like it needs some more time in bottle. This is the richest and headier of all the wines I tasted from Teso la Monja in this sitting. The nose kept unfurling ripe and intoxicating aromas with time in the glass. 4,000 bottles produced.

I tasted with Marcos Eguren, who considers 2013 and 2014 easier vintages in Toro than in Rioja, two years that produced wines with great freshness. The wines are powerful, faithful to the style of the place, but also searching for elegance. The oak is much better integrated than in the past, and it feels like the cooler vintages are much better for that; a wine from 2012 was distinctly oakier than any of the 2013s or 2014s, even if those were much younger and some of them very recently bottled. The 2014s are lusher and rounder, and the 2013s are fresher and more vertical. These are wines for fans of the style, they tend to be similar and have the same profile, so the price difference is sometimes hard to justify, but within that style, they are among the best. You need patience and/or powerful food... or both!
