91 Points James Suckling
"A medium-bodied red with plum, berry and light hazelnut character.
Some burnt-citrus undertones. Softness to the tannins. Supple texture."

91 Points Jeb Dunnuck
"Dark garnet. Ripe cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by hints of licorice, vanilla and mocha. In a lush style, offering weighty dark fruit flavors that show an appealing touch of jamminess. Finishes smooth and long, with a repeating vanilla note and subtle tannin's adding final grip."

Our Thoughts on this wine.....

Red-fruited and fully evolved, this Reserva has developed a rich, generous texture, balancing sweet fruit with smoky savor.
Well-balanced, well-structured with touches of plum and blackberry on the lasting finish. The wine is open and ready to drink now through 2027.
Enjoy with hardy cheeses and soups, chili, Paella or Jambalaya and.
of course, any grilled, slighty charred meat.


A bit about Bodegas Palacio del Burgo in their words....

Six families of farmers dreamt of winemaking and founded Bodegas Burgo Viejo in 1987 and after several cooperative attempts  BURGO VIEJO was finally brought to life.

These families´ vineyards produce all wine varieties registered under the Denomination of Origin Rioja – DOR such as Tempranillo Variety grown in the soils of the landscapes of Yerga, Rigüelo, The Valley and Tambarría, the Garnacha Variety - to be found in the soils of Casillón, Cascajo and Mazuela en la Senda, and the Viura Variety.

Burgo Viejo´s main asset has always been the exquisite winemakingprocess of grapes collected from its own vineyards throughout the years back to the times when we were just a wine cellar selling bulk wine until present day when Burgo Viejo wines have become global and are exported to distant places like Japan, Denmark, and the U.S.
The 200-hectare vineyard carefully grown by these six families of old savvy winemakers farming the land the old natural way produces a broad set of wines by combining the oldest winemaking traditions at La Rioja and new market trends in an effort to meet the clients´ needs.
