Vega Sicilia : Valbuena 5 Ano 2009

Castilla and Leon - Ribera del Duero - Red Vega Sicilia Vega Sicilia 2009 J564/09
  • Parker : 94
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2009 Valbuena was harvested early, the result of a warm summer. It's mostly Tempranillo complemented with 5% Merlot. The wine matured for five months in 20,000-liter oak vats, 16 months in new barriques (equal parts French and American oak), four months in used barrels and then four more months in the vats before being bottled in May 2011. 180,000 bottles produced. It has some reductive notes and would benefit from some time in a decanter, where you'd start appreciating its background of cherries which feels very classical and serious. The palate is well-built, with polished tannins, very good acidity and freshness with elegance and fine tannins. Mature and with good typicity. Drink 2014-2020.
