Since putting their reputation on the line, Escoriheula’s new direction has been widely lauded. The quality of wines have continued a steep ascent since the shift, with critics, consumers and even the traditionalists taking notice.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate recently reviewed the portfolio and was blown away by the results in the bottle – even if non-traditional in their approach – eschewing excessive oak and allowing the truest expression of the terroir to speak for itself. Longtime Argentinian correspondent, Luis Guiterrez said the wines at Escorihuela Gascón are “better than ever” – high praise considering their storied reputation.
Their first organic, vegan and biodynamic wine, their 1884 Organic Single-Vineyard Malbec Escorihuela is downright delicious so it’s no surprise that it’s sent shockwaves throughout the Malbec community. Parker’s Wine Advocate gave the wine a 93-point score, a huge score considering today’s price tag. But Tim Atkin of Decanter and Antonio Galloni’s Vinous echoed Parker’s admiration with their own 92-point scores. Vinous called the wine, “a modern style for Argentina, but in all a very seductive Malbec.”
Released at $35/bottle, a completely reasonable price given its single-vineyard status, superstar winemaker and the quality of what’s in the bottle. But today’s price reads more like a typo. I assure you, it isn’t.
