Tim Atkin über: Valbuena 5 anos

-- Tim Atkin: You wouldn't call Valbuena a poor man's Vega Sicilia at €85 a bottle, but it's certainly more accessible, price-wise, than Único. Sourced from north-facing slopes in Valladolid, this is a cuvée of Tinto Fino with 6% Merlot that demonstrates the quality of an excellent vintage. Orange zest, blackberry and dark chocolate flavours are embellished by refreshing acidity and subtle, spicy, scented oak. One of the best Valbuenas of recent years. 97/100

Parker über: Valbuena 5 anos

-- Parker: The 2016 Valbuena was produced with a blend of 94% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) and 6% Merlot from 140 hectares dedicated to this wine. It fermented with indigenous yeasts, and the first year it matured in barrels (75% French, 25% American) and the second year in large oak vats. This is again a floral and elegant vintage of Valbuena, very much in line with what has happened in the best vintages since 2010. 2016 is going to be a wine that the public is going to like; it has an extroverted personality and is perfumed and generous, juicy and tasty and nicely textured, with fine-grained tannins and very focused and clean flavors. 2016 was a year of very good freshness in Ribera del Duero, a year they like even better than 2018. 182,882 bottles, 6,030 magnums and a few larger formats were produced. It was bottled in June 2019. 96/100

-- Falstaff: Komplexes Bukett mit Noten von ­reifer Pflaume und Brombeere. Dazu Anklänge von Cassis, roter Ribisel und dunklen Trockenfrüchten sowie Weichselkirsche. Hinzu gesellt sich eine feine, äußerst gut eingebundene Holzwürze. Noten von Karamell und schwarzem Pfeffer sowie ätherische Anklänge. Am Gaumen weicher, schmeichelnder Auftakt, frische ­dunkle Beerenfrucht, Kirsche, ­Heidelbeere, feinkörniges Tannin. 96/100

Suckling über: Valbuena 5 anos

-- Suckling: Gorgeous aromas of blackberries, black chocolate and shitake mushrooms follow through to a full body with round, plush tannins that are corduroy in texture. The flavors are intense, but not overdone. Drink now or hold. 95/100

Wine Spectator über: Valbuena 5 anos

-- Wine Spectator: This red shows both power and finesse, with generous flavors of ripe red plum and currant accented with anise, cedar, olive and wild herb. Spice and loamy earth notes fine-tune the finish. Tinto Fino and Merlot. Drink now through 2040. 94/100
