Spain and the Wine Advocate

A week ago the last edition of the publication The Wine Advocate shocked many of the wine lovers world. In its pages the expert and critic Robert Parker has awarded the maximum 100 points to five Spanish wines. The five wines that have received the maximum award were: Contador 2004 from Benjamin Romeo, Viña el Pisón 2004 from Bodegas y Viñedos Artadi, Clos Erasmus 2004 from Clos Erasmus, Termanthia 2004 from Bodegas Numanthia Termes and Pingus 2004 from Bodegas Pingus. Many people say that it is an inflation of the points, but has anyone complained about the half a dozen 100-point cabernets from Napa that got in the list or about how gentle they are with Australia? Spain is here for good. We are ready to kick some asses!

Parker pincha a veces... creo que el vino español es mucho mejor que el de Napa y casi cualquier otra parte. El contador me encantó. Con Oriol nos hemos bebido un par de botellas.
