Heiner Lobenberg über:
Alion Tempranillo 2016


Lobenberg: Schwarzkirsche, Cassis und andere dunkle Beeren, dazu Nüsse, Röstaromen, Vanille, Tabak und Kakao, am Gaumen dichte Frucht, gut eingebundene Tannine und ein feiner Karamelton, langes Finale. 95/100


Suckling über: Alion Tempranillo

-- Suckling: A very savory and succulent Alion with so much complexity of flavor with berries, chocolate and dried meat. Some cedar, too. Full body. Vertical and very long. Purity of fruit and tannins to this wine. Needs two or three years to soften. Release in 2020. Better after 2022. 96/100


Tim Atkin über: Alion Tempranillo

-- Tim Atkin: Alión is a pan-Ribera cuvée, made by the team at Vega Sicilia but with its own vineyard sources in Pesquera, Moradillo, Roa, La Aguillera and Quintinalla de Arriba. Typical of the best 2016s, this has texture and finesse, with scented vanilla top notes from wood ageing, floral plum and red cherry fruit, filigree tannins and a poised, refreshing finish. Drinkable young, but will get even better in bottle. 95/100


Parker über: Alion Tempranillo

-- Parker: The highly anticipated 2016 Alión spent 12 months in oak barrels, 80% of them new and built mainly with French oak but with some 5% American oak, and some 10% of the volume matured in 15,000-liter concrete vats. It hits the scale at 15% alcohol and has moderate acidity, showing ripe black fruit and a creamy texture. 2016 has to be one of the freshest and most elegant vintages of Alión, a year with depth, freshness and terrific balance. Same as they do in Pintia, they are finding ways to lower the impact of the oak in the wine; here, they used concrete, and the wine shows more primary and floral aromas and is nicely textured and with fine tannins. 95/100
