Description

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

This delicious Roble’ is made from 100% Tempranillo. The grapes are sourced from 30-year-old vines planted at an elevation of 700 metres. Aged for six months in a combination of American (70%) and French (30%) oak, the resulting wine is bursting with aromas of ripe black cherry and blackberry combined with a subtle spiciness. .

Intense cherry red with purple hues. On the nose, pronounced aromas of wild red berries are married with floral notes and hints of vanilla, smoke and liquorice. Full bodied on the palate, with firm but ripe tannins and a refreshing acidity, which carries the concentrated flavours onto the lingering finish.
