Valbuena - 2013 - Vega Sicilia



Alcoholic content: 14.00 %

yr. 2004 Tom Cannavan:

95 of 100 Points.

"Tom Cannavan" has rated the wine "Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5, Ribera del Duero, Spain" from the vintage 2004 on 01.01.1970 with 95 of 100 points.

"Subtle, harmonious, composed and elegant nose, with some gently toasty, cedary notes. Cherry and delicate fruit as well as a tight, plummy quality. The palate has open, elegant black fruit with a cassis sweetness and a bittersweet edge of liquorice or plum-skin that gives a very focused, clear line through the palate. There are powerful, gripping tannins but they are velvety and refined. Tight and long, winemaker Xavier Ausas suggests this will drink at its best from around 2014."

yr. 1997 Tom Cannavan:

92 of 100 Points.

"Tom Cannavan" has rated the wine "Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5, Ribera del Duero, Spain" from the vintage 1997 on 01.01.1970 with 92 of 100 points.

"Vinous and pleasantly cedary, but perhaps a touch less ripe than it could be. It has a certain smoky, earthy character which is appealing. The palate is again a little more driven by acidity than the weight of fruit. The tannins are nicely resolved and this has fine energy, with racy, lithe tannins and good length thanks to modest but elegant fruit and that acidity. A successful wine in a poor year for the region."

yr. 1983 Tom Cannavan:

92 of 100 Points.

"Tom Cannavan" has rated the wine "Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5, Ribera del Duero, Spain" from the vintage 1983 on 01.01.1970 with 92 of 100 points.

"Showing a lot of colour development, but still quite dark at the core. The nose shows a lot of development too, with a slightly dank, slightly mushroomy character, though cedar and good red berry fruits come through. On the palate the tannins are resolved and mellow, but those and a charry quality of oak give depth. The fruit is really quite sweet in an old wine way, with lovely resolution. Not for extended cellaring."

yr. 2002 Tom Cannavan:

91 of 100 Points.

"Tom Cannavan" has rated the wine "Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5, Ribera del Duero, Spain" from the vintage 2002 on 01.01.1970 with 91 of 100 points.

"Cedary, gently meaty and smoky notes, less obvious fruit intensity, but a certain minty, chocolaty note. The palate is much leaner, more acidic than the 2004, with still good balance, but it is a less generous, less well-endowed wine."

yr. 1998 Tom Cannavan:

93 of 100 Points.

"Tom Cannavan" has rated the wine "Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5, Ribera del Duero, Spain" from the vintage 1998 on 01.01.1970 with 93 of 100 points.

"Vega Sicilia's Valbuena is mostly Tempranillo, with some Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. This has a big, cedary, blackcurrant-infused nose with a very solid, leathery quality and lots of ripeness. That intense cassis-like fruit is very pure. On the palate it has a creamy texture and a slightly fudge-like quality of harmonious, sweet fruit. Dense and powerful, this is very classy stuff where background tannins and cherry acidity add sharpness to a long finish. This needs time (Maybe a decade?). For now it is excellent, but is potentially outstanding for those with patience."

yr. 1999 Tom Cannavan:

93 of 100 Points.

"Tom Cannavan" has rated the wine "Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5, Ribera del Duero, Spain" from the vintage 1999 on 01.01.1970 with 93 of 100 points.

"was affected by rain. When they began picking on 10th October, everything looked set for a great vintage, but then the rains came on 14th October and lasted until 26th. They did not start picking again until 1st November and in the interim they worked assiduously in the vineyards, removing any grapes that showed signs of rot and removing leaves to allow for maximum aeration of the grapes. And the resulting wine is remarkably fine, with silky tannins and dry cassis fruit, with a youthful balance of fruit and acidity, which will allow it to age."

yr. 2000 Tom Cannavan:

92 of 100 Points.

"Tom Cannavan" has rated the wine "Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5, Ribera del Duero, Spain" from the vintage 2000 on 01.01.1970 with 92 of 100 points.

"This was the vintage of the good wine grower, for much depended on careful work in the vineyard, which has given the wine richness and concentration, with tightly knit fruit and nicely balanced oak, making for a structured but elegant wine."

yr. 2001 Tom Cannavan:

91 of 100 Points.

"Tom Cannavan" has rated the wine "Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5, Ribera del Duero, Spain" from the vintage 2001 on 01.01.1970 with 91 of 100 points.

"Another vintage in which Unico was not produced. A very hard spring frost killed the first shoots, so the Valbuena was made from the second generation of grapes. A very hot summer meant a surprisingly early harvest, with ripe fruity wines, which they felt were unsuitable for the lengthy barrel ageing given to Unico. The 2001 Valbuena has a sweet oaky ripeness, with notes of orange, and it will be intriguing to see how it develops."
