But to find the best values in Priorat, I rely exclusively on the family with the best reputation for making them. They even have a “secret” weapon that they argue is the highest quality Priorat for the money. That’s pretty tough to argue aginst. Pulled from steep slopes at the foot of the Sierra del Montsant, the Secret de Priorat from the Torres Family is a gorgeous blend of Garnacha, Cariñena, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah made off llicorella slate soils. It’s medium-palate yet delicate with an opaque shade, packed with blackberries, blueberries and spicy peppery notes.It’s compact yet manages to stay velvety and finished polished and long.
Chad’s 2019 ‘SMR’ is a Bordeaux blend that came from what is widely considered to be the best old-patch, old-vine vineyard for Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in the Mayacamas Mountains. It’s a vibrant purple color with killer aromatics of wild blueberry, sage and mint. This baby is full-bodied and lush on the pallet, with juicy, ripe plum and cassis flavors and just a touch of dark chocolate. The tannins are fine and long. There’s a lot to like – this is a classy wine at a crazy good price.

Galloni called it, “rich and powerful” a “hearty Margaux with plenty of personality”. Suckling fell for the wine’s grace, calling it “long and polished’ as well as a “very suave, attractively balanced Margaux.” The 2017 Chateau La Gurgue Margaux is a big thick wine, but it’s built to perfection. Released by the historic estate that was once owned by the mayor of Margaux, this baby is 55% Cabernet, 40% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot classic Left Bank Bordeaux blend that is just coming into its own. According to the Galloni’s tasting note, the drinking window for this one is 2022-2037. Now’s the time.
From the red hot Côtes-de-Bordeaux region, and the brilliant, Jean-Francois Meynard just outside Saint Emilion comes the 2019 newly released Roque Le Mayne. It’s rich and elegant Right Bank blend in its youth with vibrant fresh notes of raspberry, wild strawberries, forrest floor and blueberries, with a refreshing minerality and a touch of earth. It’s a classic, sleek Right-Bank blend that can be enjoyed with pretty much anything on a table but has enough body and depth to be enjoyed in a big Bordeaux glass by itself.
