2014 Emilio Rojo Ribeiro

SKU #1277314 93 points James Suckling

 This white Ribeiro has a complex nose of orange blossom, grapefruit and hints of daisies. Linear palate with plenty of intensity that follows to a flavorful and textured finish. One of the legends of Ribeiro. Drink now or hold.  (12/2016)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The just bottled 2014 Emilio Rojo shows no great news compared with previous vintages, a blend of grapes from his granitic soil vineyards in the village of Leiro fermented with indigenous yeasts, and matured in contact with the lees and absence of oak, then bottled after some 16 months in vat. The wine is very young and shows no fatigue from the bottling. In fact it has a great note, it smells of the sábrego sandy soils where the vines are planted, with more balsamic aromas coming through with time, still a bit shy. The palate shows vibrant acidity, nicely balanced, intense, very pure, long and mineral, with a very tasty, almost saline finish. 5,000 bottles produced. The charismatic Emilio Rojo keeps filling my data sheets with his fountain pen, which reflect his philosophy of manual work. He handcrafts his 5,000 bottles of sought-after white Ribeiro.

91 points Vinous

 Light, bright yellow. Pungent, mineral-accented aromas of lemon pith, yellow plum, chamomile and honeysuckle. Juicy and concentrated on the palate, offering incisive citrus and orchard fruit flavors underscored by gingery spice and quinine notes. The floral and mineral notes repeat strongly on the nervy, focused, very persistent finish. (JR)  (1/2016)

K&L Notes

Emilio Rojo produces one wine: the Emilio Rojo Ribeiro. This Galician white blend of indigenous grapes Treixadura, Loureiro, Lado, Albariño, and Torrontés is an original, fresh and drenched in minerality, yet also richly textured, fleshy, and exhuberant. This straddles the space between a fantastic, top flight Albariño, or perhaps a great 1er cru Burgundy, with less oak and riper fruit. Tough to describe, but even tougher to to not quickly drink the bottle before realizing what a rare, delicious white wine one has to reckon with in the glass. Very rare and highly recommended. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)
