Marqués de Burgos

Castilla y León, castilla y leon Spain

Marqués de Burgos is the Ribera del Duero operation of Bodegas LAN. Established experts in working with Tempranillo in Rioja, they embarked on a search for prime vineyard sites within the Ribera del Duero region, where this famed grape also thrives. Their thorough search led them to the village of Quintana del Pidio and old bush-vine vineyards producing low yields (around three tonnes per hectare) of intensely flavoured grapes. María Barúa is at the winemaking helm and perfectly marries the exuberant berry-fruit aromas of Tempranillo with subtle spiciness from measured use of oak.

Both the ‘Crianza’ and the ‘Roble’ are made from 100% Tempranillo. The grapes for the ‘Roble’ come from 30-year-old vines planted at an altitude of 700 metres above sea level. Aged for six months in a combination of American (70%) and French (30%) oak, this wine is bursting with aromas of ripe red cherry and strawberry combined with a subtle spiciness. The ‘Crianza’ is the product of 40-year-old vines planted on south-facing slopes at a higher altitude of 850 metres above sea level. Aged in French oak for 14 months, it boasts intense aromas of bright berry fruit, a toasty complexity from the oak, firm but velvety tannins and a crisp acidity which carries the flavours onto the harmonious finish.
