2010 Palacio del Burgo Reserva Rioja

SKU #1240985 93 points Wine Spectator

 *Highly Recommended* Plum, blood orange, black olive, toast and mineral notes mingle in this tight, bright red. Juicy acidity keeps this lively, while firm tannins impart focus. Graceful, with good intensity.  (12/2015)

91 points Vinous

 Deep ruby. Deeply perfumed aromas of ripe dark berries, vanilla and mocha. Smooth, broad and sweet, displaying intense blackberry and boysenberry flavors and a repeating vanilla note. Juicy acidity provides focus and lift to the long, sweet, gently tannic finish, with a sexy floral pastille quality lingering. (JR)  (11/2015)

90 points Wine & Spirits

 Red-fruited and fully evolved, this tempranillo has developed a rich, generous texture, balancing sweet fruit with smoky savor. Touches of bitter orange last in the finish. The wine is open and ready to enjoy with grilled meats.  (12/2015)

Wild berries! The label copy promises this specific note, and while I don’t always endorse advertising descriptors, in this case, I couldn’t agree more. There’s also a smoky, slightly pithy component on the finish and a brightness throughout... this Palacio del Burgo Reserva is solid value from a stellar vintage.

I am a big fan of this wine. If you love the Lesmos Reserva, or some of our other direct imports in this price range, I highly recommend trying a bottle of this! Dark fruited and rich, it is nonetheless well-structured, with some bottle development beginning to show. The wine is very well integrated, but I imagine it will develop quite well given a couple more years. Try one now, and put some away for later!

This wine is a perfect gateway for domestic wine drinkers looking to "dip their toes" into the wonders of Rioja. The sweet dark cherry and dark berry flavors are integrated nicely with juicy acidity. There is plenty of mid-palate weight, but the tannins are soft and assimilated on the long finish. This is a ripe, easy-drinking red with plenty of Rioja character.

Additional Information:



- A very important red grape varietal that's native to Northern Spain, grown across the north and central regions of the country. Low in acid and alcohol, with subtle strawberry, leather and tobacco notes, the grape responds well to oak aging and plays particularly well with others. Tempranillo is an important component, when combined with Garnacha, Mazuelo, Viura and Graciano, of Rioja, with the best examples coming for the cooler, higher-elevation regions like Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa. It is also grown in significant quantities in the Ribera del Duero where it is called Tinto Fino and Penèdes where it is called Ull de Llebre o Ojo de Llebre. Tempranillo hasn't gained a particularly strong foothold outside of Spain, achieving some success under the name Tinto Roriz in Portugal. There it is used as a component of Port and in the table wines of the Ribera del Duero and the Dão.


- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
