What's New in February
Joan d'Anguera, Bugader 2004- Now Available!
2004 was a spectacular vintage for Bugader. The growing season was long with good sunshine and rainfall came when needed.
In this vintage the brothers used open-top fermentation in small barriques to integrate the fruit with the wood. Malolactic fermentation in the barrels followed and the wine then rested in the same barrels for 14 months. Botlled unfined and unfiltered.
Production was 6000 bottles or 1000 cases.
Joan d'Anguera, El Bugader 2004
Bright red. Impressively complex aromas of raspberry, wild strawberry, game and minerals. Elegant and silky, with medium weight and a fresh, juicy red berry character framed by subtle, fine-grained tannins. Strikingly pure on the finish, showing excellent energy, cut and length. This has the concentration and balance to age. -J.R. (International Wine Cellar Sept/Oct 2006)

In the Press
The Wine Spectator reviews some of their favorite wines from Priorat, Ribera del Duero and the Loire Valley.
This lush red is like pie a la mode, sweet with ripe blackberry and huckleberry fruit and vanilla oak flavors. It’s mouthfilling yet not aggressive, and there’s enough acidity to keep it lively. An oaky, modern style, ripe and heady, but rich and deep. Drink now through 2015. –T.M. (Insider Vol.2, No.2)
Le Clos 2002
Still going strong, with nice concentration to its lemon peel, sea salt, dried grapefruit and mineral notes. Plenty of vibrancy on the finish. Impressive for its age. Drink now. 1,175 cases made. -J.M. (Dec 15, 2006)
