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 mighty 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.
This wine is intense cherry red in colour. On the nose, it has rich aromas of ripe red cherries and wild berries married with notes of black pepper, sweet spices and roasted coffee. Full bodied on the palate with ripe tannins and a well-integrated acidity, which carries the concentrated red fruit and spice flavours onto the lingering finish.
