94 points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): "The 'vi de vila' or village wine 2018 Gratallops was produced with a blend of 74% Garnacha, 25% Cariñena and 1% white varieties that were crushed and destemmed and then fermented in oak vats with indigenous yeasts. The wine matured in oak containers of different sizes, bocoyes and oval foudres, for 15 months. This is the most approachable and open of the 2018s, aromatic and with the characterful profile of wet slate, nuts, Mediterranean herbs and acid berries. It has a lively palate with great acidity but especially with complete but sustained freshness. It has fine tannins and is nicely textured. Textbook Priorat. 18,740 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2020. Drink: 2020-2025. (Jun 2020)"

94 points James Suckling: "Blackberry and blueberry aromas and flavors with some iodine and slate. Black pepper, too. Medium body, light tannins and a refined, fruity finish. Finely crafted. Drink or hold. (10/6/20)"
