Bodegas Valbusenda

Vivo Toro Tempranillo 2011

Ming L
8.9

A relatively young bodegas doubled as a 5-start hotel.
Exuberant nose of blackberry, plum, red currant, wood sources, anise and subtle game. The palate, while rich, is very youthful for a 11-year old bottle. Sharp acidity and quite formidable tannins. Probably needs another 8-10 years to completely settle down.

Pago de Valdoneje Roble Bierzo Mencía 2020

Wow! I find it mindblowing for the price. There must be some carbonic maceration involved. Flowers and cherries, and raspberries, a hint of wet leaves, foliage. Blood, or iron like note of Mencía. Pleasant medium body — 9 days ago

PV Pago de Valdoneje Bierzo Mencía 2015

Extremely earthy. Aromas and flavors of red and black fruits with hints of smoke, black licorice and roasted mint leaves. Just a touch of Brett. Really dense (including the color) and concentrated. Fine tannins. Rustic but elegant. Thanks a mark B. — 3 days ago

No notes. Somehow stopped short of delicious, but admirably competent. — a month ago

Excellent, fresh and fragrant red fruits like cherry and raspberry, subtle and sweet baking and licorice spices, violets and lavender. Excellent density and flavor intensity but elegant and fresh mouthfeel. Just a pure joy and pleasure to sniff and sip! — 21 days ago

Versos de Valtuille Bierzo Mencía 2018

Refreshing change of pace. 100% Mencia. Shining acidity wrapped up by ripe red fruits. Barn yard animals on first pour, blows off after a min. No oak, light silky tannins, slight minerality. Effortless with a pizza but probably better with @Lars Fasel lamb shank. — a day ago
