Rated 94 by Wine Advocate
The red Bordeaux blend 2017 Quest was produced with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot and fermented entirely in the 12th-century stone lagars, followed by malolactic and 18 months of aging in brand-new French barriques. Despite the warm and dry year, the wine is only 13.65% alcohol since they are in a cooler zone in the Pyrenees part of Costers del Segre. And the wine does have a cool-climate profile, with great freshness and peppery notes, more classical than the majority of modern Bordeaux with that herbal side. There is nothing creamy about this wine—it's austere and medium-bodied. The tannins are very fine, and there is a bitter twist in the finish. This is amazingly fresh and every bit as good as the best vintages. 4,400 bottles and 100 magnums produced. It was bottled in April 2019.

Region: Cataluna

For thousands of years, Spain's beautiful wine region of Catalunya has been a powerful center of wine production, with much archaeological evidence to suggest that quality vines were being cultivated in the fine Catalan soils many hundreds of years before even the first Roman settlers arrived. The wonderful coastal Mediterranean climate of the region creates an ideal environment for viticulture, and the excellent conditions are improved further by the mineral rich soils which cover much of the region's valleys and hillsides. As a result, the bodegas and wineries which operate in Catalunya are able to grow a wide variety of imported and native grape varietals, and are able to produce their famous sparkling Cava wines in large quantities, alongside the many still red and white wine bottles which are brought out each year to critical acclaim.

Country: Spain

For over two thousand years, Spain has been responsible for much of Europe's wine production, making the very best of native grape varietals, and more recently experimenting with and perfecting wines made from imported grapes. Of course, the region of La Rioja is renowned world-wide for the quality and characteristics of its wines, which benefit greatly from the warm, dry continental climate of the area, and the fertile soils of the Ebro river basin. However, there is far more to Spanish produce than the complex, aromatic and earthy red wine of this region, as a result of the vast range of wine making traditions and practices, and terrains and climatic conditions found across the country. The region Castilla y Leon produces some of Europe's finest white wines, and the sparkling wines of Cava and the sherries of Jerez are firm favorites for wine lovers around the world.
