Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
There is a clear improvement in the 2018 ÀN; it's still toasty, smoky and oaky, but there is more of the character of the grapes and place coming through. It's a pale and translucent ruby-colored blend of Callet with small percentages of Fogoneu and Mantonegro. Using their own selected yeasts from the Son Negre vineyard, the grapes fermented in 4,000-liter oak vats and concrete tanks. The palate is medium-bodied, ripe without excess and delicate, like the local grapes can be. I wish I could take away the extra layer of wood that is preventing the wine from really shining through, because the wine is definitely there. It matured in French oak barrels for 14 months. Give it some more time to see if the wine is able to absorb some more of the oak. 24,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2020.
