The white 2016 Micalet is named after a plot of old vines planted by Revert's great grandfather in 1948. The plot is on white, sloped soils and contains local varieties, mainly Tortosí and Trepadell, with some Malvasía, Merseguera and Verdil. All the grapes were picked together in mid-September and pressed with full clusters. The must started fermenting without the addition of any yeasts, and part of the fermenting juice was transferred to barrel, where it finishes and was kept without racking for eight months. The rest was put in glass demijohns once fermentation was over and kept there for eight months with lees. It has 13.3% alcohol and a pH of 3.07. He already made a micro-vinification in 2015, and the wine showed a strong personality. The nose is quite spectacular, with notes of fennel, hay and straw. There's also chalky minerality. The palate combines volume with vibrant acidity and a long, tasty finish. This is an impressive debut; truly outstanding. As the vineyard comes back to full production after being neglected for many years, there will be more grapes, and the quality should also improve. 1,015 bottles were filled in March 2017.

Javi Revert Viticultor is the solo project of Celler del Roure's winemaker Javier "Javi" Revert. It started in 2014 when he fell in love with a vineyard planted by his great grandfather with white grapes. And he found a part of the Font de la Figuera village with white soils at 700 to 800 meters altitude, pure chalk à la Jerez or Champagne. So, he recovered some old vineyards and replanted terraces that had been abandoned for almost 50 years. His first wines are from 2016. Definitely a new name to follow. Luis Gutierrez 93/100
