Spanish wines with the best quality-price ratio according to Robert Parker

Although it was not scheduled in the offical editorial calendar for publication, The Wine Advocate welcomes an interesting and special article this December, signed by no less than Robert Parker himself.

On this occasion, the gurú focuses his attention on a search for the wines with the best quality-price ratio on the market. For him, he assessed wines with a price lower than 25$ in the USA, a portfolio of four of distributors and importers favourite wines.

As a general conclusion, we have to say that Spanish wine triumphed the list, clearly imposing on the rest of the international competitors, and confirming once again that we are one of the production countries of reference in terms of quality-price.

Below we review some of the wines with the best points, available on our website:

Alvear Pedro Ximénez de Añada 2013 Nothing less than 93 Parker points for less than 9€ which transforms this 100% PX from DO Montilla-Moriles into one of the sweet wines with the best quality-price ratio on the market. A perfect finish to a good meal.

Almirez 2012. A spectacular price-quality ratio from this 100% tinta de toro from D.O. Toro that has 93 Parker points. Pure fruit in a glass. Long and balanced. A small gem which is affordable for everyone that Parker ends up buying with other great wines from the north of Rhône.

Romanico 2012. Following DO Toro, without even moving from the winery, it seem that the wines from the Teso la Monja winery are liked, especially by Robert Parker: 92 Parker points for Romanico 2012. An excellent point, difficult to find in red wines less than 10€.

Portal 11. We travel to DO Terra Alta to stress the 92 Parker points gained by this coupage of grenache, cariñena, syrah and tempranillo from the Celler Piñol winery. A lot of fruit, minerality and subtle spices on the nose and an impeccable balance on the nose. An intelligent purchase!

Bozeto de Exopto 2013. We close this small section by travelling to DOCa Rioja, the land where they make this impeccable coupage of grenache, tempranillo and graciano. A seductive and fragrant wine that succeeds in combining a crispy and vibrant fruit with a good contribution from the wood. 91 Parker points for less than 7€. A bargain!
