Marqués de Burgos is the Ribera del Duero operation of Bodegas LAN. Established experts in 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 of very 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 in colour, with purple hues. Flavours of wild berries and a hint of violets provide perfume on the nose. On the palate, there are prominent notes of liquorice, which is very typical of this grape variety, along with touches of cocoa and vanilla on the long finish.
