The red wines of Ribera are amongst the finest in Spain, and this limited edition prestige cuvee from Bodegas J Belmonte is just the wine to epitomize this statement. Dark, intense, packed full of flavour, and with great detail and length. Released with several years bottle age to soften the edges, it will grow in stature for a decade or more.
In our search for interesting wines from Ribera de Duero where quality in undeniable but value for money less prvalent, we came accross Bodegas J Belmonte which on the face of it is very inconspicuous outside of the region. The wines are discernably inginenous, from vines as old as 100 years, the vineyard located in the special village of Gumiel de Mercado from where many of the regions finest wines hail. The ethos here is to make wines round and balanced.
This is very deep, the nose has a faint whiff of cardboard, with dark chocolate and tarry notes, prunes & bacon fat. The palate is powerful and inky, but the fruit content is ripe and textured, a lovely silky wine, Black Forest gateau flavours with fine dusty tannins at the edge of the palate, really quite delicious. A serious Ribera.
