Wine News & Reviews

2011 Burgo Viejo Rioja Tinto - 87 PTS - WA

"From a cooperative of six families founded in 1987, Burgo Viejo’s delicious 2011 Tinto (a blend of 85% Tempranillo and the rest 10% Grenache and 5% Mazuelo, aged largely in concrete vats) is a mid-weight Spanish fruit bomb. Loads of black cherry and black currant fruit intermixed with some licorice, tobacco leaf and spice box jump from the glass of this deep ruby/purple-tinged wine. It is medium-bodied, lush and ideal for drinking over the next several years. Don’t expect complexity, but rather a hedonistic style of Rioja that sells for a song."

2011 Burgo Viejo Rioja Tinto - 88 PTS - IWC

Tanzer International Wine Cellar 88 Pts"(85% tempranillo, 10% garnacha and 5% mazuelo): Vivid ruby. Primary red and dark berry aromas show good energy and a slightly jammy aspect. Smooth, seamless and sweet, with lively black raspberry and boysenberry flavors and a hint of black pepper. Finishes smooth with very soft tannins and sweet berry notes."

2012 Burgo Viejo Rioja Tinto - 87 PTS - WA

Wine Advocate "The grapiest and youngest of this trio, the 2012 Tinto is composed of 85% Tempranillo and the rest Garnacha and Mazuelo, aged totally in concrete and stainless steel. It possesses a deep ruby/purple color along with medium body, copious amounts of creme de cassis, licorice and lead pencil shavings and a moderately endowed, supple, intense, richly fruity personality. Drink it over the next 2-3 years."

2013 Burgo Viejo Rioja Tinto - 88 PTS - IWR

tanzer iwc 88 pts"(85% tempranillo, 10% garnacha and 5% mazuelo; no oak): Inky ruby. Blackberry, cherry compote and fresh flowers on the nose. Lush, open-knit dark berry flavors show good clarity and no rough edges. Supple and seamless in texture, finishing with gentle sweetness and very soft tannins. Extremely easy to drink, with the heft to handle rich or assertively seasoned foods."

2013 Burgo Viejo Rioja Tinto - 88 PTS - WA

wa88"These wines are from the same producer as the Palacio del Burgo offerings reviewed later in this report, and, for my taste, seem almost identical to those wines. The 2013 Tinto reveals delicious, ripe, savory, black cherry and blackcurrant fruit intermixed with notions of tobacco leaf, spice box, new saddle leather and a lovely, lush, heady mouthfeel. Drink now-2017. - Robert Parker"

2014 Burgo Viejo Rioja Tinto - 88 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Brilliant ruby. Spice-accented dark berry and floral aromas are complemented by hints of cola and vanilla. Sweet, seamless and broad in the mouth, offering warm black raspberry and cherry compote flavors and a jolt of black pepper. Finishes smooth and gently sweet, the gentle tannins folding quickly into the lingering fruit. - Josh Raynoldsr"
