Wine News & Reviews

2009 Palacio del Burgo Rioja Reserva - 90 PTS - WA

"wa90These are custom cuvées made specifically for importer Fran Kysela. Palacio del Burgo is a large estate, even for Rioja, with over 494 acres of vines. All three of these inexpensive offerings are impressive and merit serious interest from thrifty consumers. The most complex as well as the most expensive of this trio is the 2009 Reserva. Made from 85% Tempranillo, 10% Grenache and 5% Carignan, it exhibits a dark plum/ruby color and a sweet bouquet of loamy soil, tobacco leaf, red and blackcurrants and cherries intermixed with a hint of licorice. This medium-bodied, lush, complex 2009 smells good, tastes good, and finishes impressively. Enjoy it over the next 4-5 years. - Robert Parker"

2009 Palacio del Burgo Rioja Reserva - 91 PTS - IWC

"tanzer iwc 91 pts(85% tempranillo, 10% garnacha and 5% mazuelo): Brilliant ruby. Ripe blackberry and cherry-vanilla on the nose, with a subtle tobacco undertone. Lively red and dark berry preserve flavors show very good depth and a seamless texture. Surprisingly energetic for this ripe vintage, with a bright spicy quality adding bite and focus to the long, gently tannic finish. Fans of old-school Rioja should check this one out as it delivers serious bang for the peseta, as the old-timers would say. - Josh Raynolds"

"vinous logo 250Deep ruby. Deeply perfumed aromas of ripe dark berries, vanilla and mocha. Smooth, broad and sweet, displaying intense blackberry and boysenberry flavors and a repeating vanilla note. Juicy acidity provides focus and lift to the long, sweet, gently tannic finish, with a sexy floral pastille quality lingering.- Josh Raynolds"

vinous logo"Brilliant ruby. Sexy, oak-spiced cherry and red berries on the fragrant nose, along with hints of cracked pepper, vanilla and woodsmoke. Sappy and focused on the palate, offering lively cherry and raspberry flavors that become sweeter on the back half. In a forward, seamless style, finishing with very good clarity and supple framing tannins. - Josh Raynolds"
