Parker über: Cuentavinas Eduardo Eugren El Tiznado

-- Parker: The 2018 El Tiznado is pure Tempranillo from a plot called El Hoyo in the village of San Vicente de la Sonsierra. It was planted in 1923 with a diversity of clones of Tempranillo (I guess an old massal selection) on red limestone soils at 500 meters in altitude. The destemmed grapes fermented in small oak vats for 21 days, followed by malolactic and élevage in new 228-liter French oak barrels for 18 months. It seems like the wine was more compressed by the smaller barrels and shows more influence from the wood than the Los Yelsones, which had a similar élevage but in 500-liter barrels. There is a creamy and luxurious twist and some sweet fruit in the palate that make it sleek and give it a slightly more commercial profile. The tannins are fine and the texture is velvety, very pleasant. Only 866 bottles and 50 magnums were filled in June 2020. 93/100

Mein Winzer


Am Fuße der Sierra Cantabria-Berge, die die Weinberge vor kalten Winden schützen, liegen die drei Weingüter der Familie Eguren. Diese berühmte Familie stellt sowohl in der Rioja, wie auch in Toro (Teso la Monja), mit ihren Weingütern die qualitative Spitze der Region dar.
