Personally, and most of my customers buy 4-6 of the 1er and then 1-3 of the little wine and the single vineyard wines. But of course buy with whatever works in your means of time/patience, storage space and money.

Umbrias killed it in 2016 and while I don’t like most critics these days, Luis Gutierrez of the WA gave it a 97. 1er got a 95 and Brujas a whopping 93!

Luis is imo the most trustworthy critic that aligns to my palate, and that is for any wines. He not only is the foremost expert for the wines if Spain, he also loves Burgundy and the Northern Rhône, Germany and Champagne.

I have not seen anything major published yet. Most of my information came from them via social media.

Only mention I saw was this: https://www.spanishwinelover.com/conoce ... a-y-madrid
