94 of 100 Points.

"Falstaff" has rated the wine "Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5" from the vintage 2008 on 01.04.2017 with 94 of 100 points.

"Riecht nach Schokotrüffel mit einem zarten Hauch von Entwicklung darin (eine Spur Marsala), wirkt dabei aber auf eine paradoxe Weise gleichzeitig verschlossen. Am Gaumen dicht, linear gebaut, geschmeidiger Fond und eine satte Gerbstofffüllung, feste Mineralität, wirkt stabil und langlebig, ein Hauch Grünes ist integriert. Fast schmerzhaft mineralisch, rotbeerige Abgangsaromen."

yr. 2010 Falstaff:

94 of 100 Points.

"Falstaff" has rated the wine "Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5" from the vintage 2010 on 01.04.2017 with 94 of 100 points.

"Waldhimbeere, recht frische Frucht. Heidelbeere. Verschlossen Kirsche, Baumharz. Hat am Gaumen Saft und Fülle, vereint mit einer stoffigen Struktur und reifer Säure. Der Gerbstoff ist maekllos reif und hat eine sehr eigenständige Textur: schaumartig bis anhaftend. Alle Komponenten sind dicht ineinander gewoben: Gerbstoff, Körper und Saft. Noch ganz kompakt, und dennoch entspannt und großzügig. Viel Feinheit."

yr. 2007 Falstaff:

94 of 100 Points.

"Falstaff" has rated the wine "Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5" from the vintage 2007 on 01.04.2017 with 94 of 100 points.

"Verschlossener Duft, Bitterschokolade, Beifuss, Thymian, verändert sich kaum im Glas. Straffer Bau, hintergründig ein klein wenig grünlich-rappig, fast adstringierend, aber auch mit viel Saftigkeit, straffer Bau, der noch sehr jung wirkt und mineralisch getragen. Wirkt extrem verschlossen, zupackend, unverwüstlich in seiner mineralischen Frische."

yr. 2009 Falstaff:

93 of 100 Points.

"Falstaff" has rated the wine "Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5" from the vintage 2009 on 01.04.2017 with 93 of 100 points.

"Der erste Jahrgang ohne Malbec. Entwickelte Nase, etwas Feige, fast schon malzig, führt am Tisch zu Diskussionen über Oxidation. Scheint im Glas aber eher frischer zu werden. Sehr cremig im Ansatz, langsam Druck aufbauender mürb-körniger Gerbstoff, der Alkohol am oberen Ende des Harmoniefensters, aber die Frucht ist viel präsenter als im Duft, kraftvolle Abgangswürze mit Noten von Kräutern, Schokolade und frisch geröstetem Kaffee. Trockener, aber nicht trocknender Hintergrund."

yr. 2011 Falstaff:

92 of 100 Points.

"Falstaff" has rated the wine "Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5" from the vintage 2011 on 01.04.2017 with 92 of 100 points.

"Sehr verschlossen im Duft, Sauerkirsche. Rote Johannisbeere, Minze, Kakao, Sesamschnitte. Am Gaumen mit einem betont cremigen, schmeichelhaften Auftakt, aber auch dicht stoffig, saftig und fast süß in der Frucht, relativ hoher Alkohol, druckvoll, zugleich zugänglich und gut gebaut. Intensiv und lang, durch die Süße der Frucht getragen, ein dichter Wein mit appeal."

yr. 2012 Falstaff:

92 of 100 Points.

"Falstaff" has rated the wine "Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5" from the vintage 2012 on 01.04.2017 with 92 of 100 points.

"Ein Fehljahr für Merlot, daher 100 Prozent Tempranillo. Blaubeere, sehr jung und verschlossen, Baumharz. Zum Kauen, mitteldicht, dabei Cremigkeit und Saftigkeit im Hintergrund, viel Kalk, erste Reifearomen im Abgang, und dies auf weichem Hintergrund. Kalk-mineralisch und stoffig, und das auf weichem Fond, mittlere Länge, merklicher Alkohol."

yr. 2006 Falstaff:

91 of 100 Points.

"Falstaff" has rated the wine "Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5" from the vintage 2006 on 01.04.2017 with 91 of 100 points.

"Riecht nach Trockenfleisch, Kakao und kandierter Schwarzkirsche. Schließlich Kräuterwürze, Salbei, etwas Holzpatina, auch eine Spur Minze. Mit Luftkontakt mehr und mehr rote Johannisbeere und Minze. Am Gaumen weich ansetzend, fast cremig, dann gaumenfüllend mit mürb gewordenem, sandigem Tannin und sehr viel Kalk-Mineralität fortsetzend, füllig, etwas diskret in der Gaumenfrucht und merklich im Alkohol, mehr Körper als Frucht und Struktur."

yr. 2004 Tom Cannavan:

95 of 100 Points.

"Tom Cannavan" has rated the wine "Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5" from the vintage 2004 on 01.01.2009 with 95 of 100 points.

"(2009) 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" from the vintage 1997 on 01.01.2009 with 92 of 100 points.

"(2009) 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" from the vintage 1983 on 01.01.2009 with 92 of 100 points.

"(2009) 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" from the vintage 2002 on 01.01.2009 with 91 of 100 points.

"(2009) 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. 2001 Falstaff:

92 of 100 Points.

"Falstaff" has rated the wine "Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5" from the vintage 2001 on 01.03.2006 with 92 of 100 points.

"Dunkles Rubingranat, tiefer Farbkern, violette Reflexe, breiterer Wasserrand. In der Nase sehr reife Frucht, Brombeerkonfit, zart nach Orangenschalen, ein Hauch von Eibisch, am Gaumen finessenreich strukturiert, kommt mit weniger Holz aus, rotbeerig, zitroniger Touch, Veilchen, wirkt bereits gut antrinkbar, hat aber auch gutes Reifepotenzial. Vin de Garde!"

yr. 1999 Tom Cannavan:

93 of 100 Points.

"Tom Cannavan" has rated the wine "Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5" from the vintage 1999 on 01.01.2004 with 93 of 100 points.

"(2004) 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. 1998 Tom Cannavan:

92 of 100 Points.

"Tom Cannavan" has rated the wine "Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5" from the vintage 1998 on 01.01.2004 with 92 of 100 points.

"(2004) Another tricky vintage; it was their work in the vineyard that counted here, with a considerable amount of green harvesting, both after flowering and after véraison, to make a wine that was elegant, though still quite tannic, with a rounded integration of oak. The style is intriguing; you can't quite decide whether it tastes of Spain or of Bordeaux."

yr. 2000 Tom Cannavan:

92 of 100 Points.

"Tom Cannavan" has rated the wine "Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5" from the vintage 2000 on 01.01.2004 with 92 of 100 points.

"(2004) 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" from the vintage 2001 on 01.01.2004 with 91 of 100 points.

"(2004) 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."

"Robert Parker The Wine Advocate" has rated the wine "Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5" from the vintage 2016 on 01.12.2020 with 96 of 100 points.
