Heiner Lobenberg über:
Alion Tempranillo 2019


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


Penin über: Alion Tempranillo

-- Penin: Helles Kirschrot. In der Nase komplex, ausdrucksstark, würzig, mineralisch, versehen mit reifer und schwarzer Frucht. Am Gaumen vollmundig, lang und kraftvoll. Röstaromen, kräftige Tannine am Ende. 95/100


Suckling über: Alion Tempranillo

-- Suckling: Ripe, tarry plums and black cherries with violets, rocks, coffee and graphite. Refined notes of balsamic fruit and cocoa powder, too. Full-bodied and juicy with an iron fist of tannins, yet at the same time so velvety and polished. Very long, focused finish, showing lots of finesse and layers. Drinkable now, but better after 2025. 95/100


Parker über: Alion Tempranillo

-- Parker: The 2019 Alión was cropped from a drier vintage compared with the average, and the wines from that year tend to be powerful, concentrated and with structure. They shortened the maceration by 11 days and used concrete for part of the élevage, trying to reduce the impact from the oak in the wine. They define 2019 as a powerful, concentrated and juicy vintage, sensual and unctuous. The wine is ripe at 15% alcohol and has mellow acidity (4.4 grams) and a pH of 3.88, reflecting the warm and dry year that delivered powerful and concentrated wines, similar to the wines from 2015. It's quite fruit-driven, ripe and juicy, with abundant, slightly dusty tannins despite the limited pumping over they did to avoid extracting too much, and the maceration was also shortened. 256,526 bottles, 7,005 magnums and some larger formats produced. It was bottled in June 2021. 94/100


Tim Atkin über: Alion Tempranillo

-- Tim Atkin: Alioìn is a pan-Ribera blend, using grapes spread over 70 hectares, principally in the Burgos villages of La Aguilera, Moradillo de Roa and Roa. Aged in a combination of concrete and 70% new French and 5% American oak, this was picked early to counter the heat of the vintage. It's bright, focused and acid-driven, with scented wood and blueberry and black cherry fruit. Will age gracefully for a decade or more. 94/100
