93+ pts 2021 Robert Parker Wine Advocate (Luis Gutierrez)
The south-facing and sunny 2019 Valtuille La Cova de la Raposa is always the first plot to be harvested, and the wine has a juicier and riper personality. This has more concentration and more tannin and is not as expressive on the nose as the 2018; it feels a bit more serious and backward and should repay some extra time in bottle. 1,100 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2021, after one year in two 500-liter oak barrels.
