Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The pure Xarello 2017 Improvisació was produced with grapes from three plots of vines ranging between 40 and 60 years of age on sandy, limestone-rich soils. The must fermented with indigenous yeasts in one 2,000-liter oak vat from Stockinger and two 300-liter concrete eggs. The foudre was first used in 2016, and the oak is completely integrated. There is a spicy twist reminiscent of white peppercorns. I saw the vineyard, and this is not a second wine compared with Nun—it's just different and seems to have taken a new personality since the 2016 vintage. It has strong aromatics and is very expressive, and there is something herbal (almond peel), definitely spicy and cool, perhaps apricots. The palate is super clean and precise, with superb natural acidity and a clearly salty finish. This is superb, possibly the finest vintage. 3,500 bottles were filled on May 25, 2018.
Between 6ºC and 8ºC
Aged for 8 months in concrete tanks and French oak barrels.
