  • 95/100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Der Quinta da Falorca Garrafeira ist ein moderner, intensiver und eleganter Wein voller Komplexität mit einem langen Abgang. Toll und auf jeden Fall ein Geschmackserlebnis mit ausgezeichnete Struktur, sanften Tanninen und lebhafter Säure. Die einzelnen Geschmacksnuacen nahezu perfekt auf einander abgestimmt und ausbalanciert.

Quinta da Falorca ist eine großartige Bastion des traditionellen Dão Stils. Das Weingut bringt seine hervorragenden Weine erst nach 4 -5 Jahren Reifezeit auf den Markt. Die Rebstöcke der Weinberge sind im Durchschnitt gute 40 Jahre alt, von denen einige jedoch auch ein Alter von 70 Jahren besitzen. Quinta da Falorcas Weinberge repräsentieren die Region auf hervorragende Art und Weise. Die Weine tragen den authentischen Charakter der jeweiligen Rebsorte auf stolze Weise in sich sowie einen unverkennbaren Herkunftscharakter. Die Weine besitzen eine tiefe Eleganz und eine wundervolle Frische gepaart mit intensiver und ansprechender Frucht.

"The 2009 Garrafeira Quinta da Falorca Old Vines is revisited this issue. It was previously seen only in Portugal. It is principally a blend of Touriga Nacional (70%) and Tinta Roriz (15%) with Rufete and several others for the remainder. After 24 months in French oak, this was transferred to stainless steel for another 24 months. This is the current release. It is not cheap, but there is a lot of investment of winery time and money here. Given their time and effort, plus the successful result, I can't complain. This old vines blend (80 years old, from Esmoitada vineyard) is remarkable. It seems like a very fine Burgundy, something with finesse, focus and gorgeous craftsmanship. The oak is still too prominent, but at no level suggested by the statistics. With several months more since I first saw it, it has been pulled in a bit already. The elegance of the mid-palate belies the persistence, intensity and focus here. As it airs out, it develops a certain, earthy note underneath that gives it complexity, too. It is far more expressive and approachable now than it was when I saw it last summer. It is a superlative effort in every respect, brilliantly balanced and rather tasty, too, if you can ever get around to paying to attention to its fruit rather than its structure. Serve this blind, tell them it is French Grand Cru from an unstated region and watch the accolades pour forth. Then, you can explain why they should be paying more attention to Portugal. This should age beautifully, by the way. Twenty to twenty-five years here seems pretty easy given the structure of this wine. The only question is whether it will do even better - I like to be conservative. For what it is worth, it was brilliant the next day, but, if anything, it had actually increased in intensity rather than smoothed out. It was more powerful and silkier, showing more and more like a big Burgundy, with its crisp finish and intensity of flavor, too. There was a somewhat harder edge, though, perhaps to a fault, but with more hours of aeration, it was better still. If you're looking for modern, soft and sweet, this isn't going to be it. You need a cellar and some patience. There were just 4,400 bottles produced - not surprising, since the entire production of this superb boutique is typically only about 50,000 bottles." - Mark Squires (216 (Part 2), The Wine Advocate)
