2001 Artazu Artazuri Garnacha Narvarra Artazu Navarra, Spain Grenache (a dry red table wine) Source Reviewer Rating Maturity Estimated Cost Wine Advocate #152 (Apr 2004) Robert Parker 92 points Drink 2004-2010 $30.00 A single vineyard 100% Grenache from 80-year old vines planted in pure chalk at an elevation of 750 meters, this estate is the creation of Juan-Carlos Lopez de la Cal, who learned his craft at Artadi. It is a fabulously concentrated, complex, medium-bodied Spanish red that tastes like a grand cru from the Cote de Nuits. The combination of limestone soil and Grenache grown at a high elevation appears to have given the wine a complex, elegant, raspberry, black cherry, and floral-scented nose with medium body, great fruit, tremendously vivid flavors, and amazing precision as well as finesse. This stunningly singular wine must be tasted to be believed. Remarkably airy and light for its intense flavors, it will provide immense pleasure over the next 5-6 years.
