Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 La Prats Vinyes Velles is a multi-grape Rosé produced, a Claret rather, with over 30 varieties both white and red, co-planted in a plot in the geographical limits of the Alella appellation, but sold without appellation. It's a vineyard planted in 1903 on a limestone-rich terrace at 75 meters altitude and two kilometers away from the Mediterranean sea. No sulphur is used and the destemmed grapes underwent an eight-hour maceration, fermented with indigenous yeasts, and the wine matured with the fine lees for seven months without bâtonnage. It somehow reminded me of the Rosé Eric Ffifferling (L'Angloré), with some organic notes mixed with notions of wet stones and a pinch of red currants. The palate is fresh, light, very tasty, with a mineral and almost salty finish. It's delicious. Only 871 bottles were filled in April 2016.
