  • Telmo Rodriguez Pegaso Barrancos de Pizarra 2017

    £36.99

    “The explosive nose of the 2017 Pegaso Barrancos de Pizarra is all thyme and flowers, really expressive, aromatic and redolent of the herbs found in the surroundings of the Gredos Mountains. It’s especially representative of the Mediterranean character of the year. It has powerful aromatics that keep growing in the glass, floral and spicy, with notes that are reminiscent of curry, nutmeg and Jamaica pepper. It’s very showy and intoxicating, with the tight tannins of the slate soils—they are chalky and finer grained than the slightly coarser tannins from granite. I am really impressed by this 2017, which is as good or better than the 2016. Bravo! 2,800 bottles were filled in July 2018. Drink: 2020-2025. 95+ points

    COVID-19 has meant a change in my tasting schedule, in some cases for good and in others for bad. I didn’t have the chance to taste the whole Telmo Rodríguez portfolio of wines like I had started doing last year, and I only tasted the wines from Gredos and Galicia to publish with the regional reports from those regions. But now that semi-normal activity resumed, the wines are hitting the market, and people have been receiving offers and asking about them. So, I asked him if he’d like to taste the rest of the wines. The wines from Gredos and Valdeorras are just a repetition of the notes I already published a few weeks ago and are included here for completeness, while the rest are tasted for the first time.”
