    Javi Revert

    New wave Spanje! Javi is gevestigd in het achterland van Valencia, Tossal de Angel. Waar de bodem kalkrijk is en waar de grote coöperaties heersen voor bulkwijn met hoge alcoholpercentages op het laaggelegen gebied. Javi heeft met zijn ervaring een paar percelen uitgekozen uit de oude familie vallei (fruit werd verkocht). De vallei ligt op een noord helling, redelijk hoog (650 m) en bestaat uit kalkrijke bodems. Hij werkt er volledig biodynamisch om het maximale uit de mediterrane druivenrassen te zoals: Tortosí, Trepadell, Malvasía, Merseguera, Verdil en Arcos te halen. Ook plant hij hoog gelegen op de helling een nieuwe terraswijngaard aan met Grenache noir en Arcos. Daarnaast een project met zijn goede vriend Victor Marquez in Utiel-Requena waar ze van twee percelen heerlijke pure rode sappige wijnen maken met een mediterrane touch! 

    Review

    The village red 2018 Sensal is a blend of grapes from four different plots of old vines planted with traditional varieties of the zone; Monastrell and Bonicaire fermented together, Arcos and 15% Garnacha fermented separately and matured in tinaja (amphora) and glass demijohns. It doesn't have Garnacha Tintorera anymore, so it's quite different from the 2017 and it's more agile. It has 13% alcohol and a medium body. But after all, it's darker and earthier than the 2019 that I also tasted next to it. It might be the rustic, tree bark-like character of Monastrell, slightly meaty and smoky. It's a step ahead of the 2017, but after tasting the 2019, it feels like the 2019 has one extra degree of finesse and definition. The palate reveals more tannins and in general feels darker. 2,600 bottles were filled in July 2019.

    Javi Revert has finished his time at Celler del Roure after 11 years there, which had been a gradual process since 2018, and is focusing more on his personal project. In 2018, he was able to spend more time in his vineyards and pay attention to the soils so he could treat different plots differently, even harvesting parts of the same vineyard at different times. Furthermore, he has purchased a further two hectares of land that had belonged to his grandmother and is going to plant more new vineyards. All his vineyards and land are in the village of Font de la Figuera, 10 hectares in total, and he expects to harvest enough grapes to produce 25,000 bottles by 2025. Right now, he only makes 7,500 bottles. 2018 was not an easy vintage, but the wines are great, the best he has produced so far. He calls 2018 a more continental vintage, with finesse, freshness and texture. The wines are better than ever, and it seems like he's still on the way up, because the one wine I tasted from 2019, a really challenging year with 200 liters of rain in the middle of the harvest, is better than the 2018! On another front, he continues at La Comarcal with his friend and winemaker Víctor Marqués and has also accepted the job as winemaker for Finca Sandoval in Manchuela after the change in ownership. Luis Gutiérrez 93/100
