Stephen Tanzer, uno de los más importantes críticos de vino a nivel mundial ha puntuado de forma magistral nuestros vinos Valduero Crianza, Una Cepa, Reserva y nuestro Blanco de Albillo, García Viadero.
Tanzer es uno de los críticos más exigentes y severos en el mundo del vino, quedando las puntuaciones de los mismos vinos entre 1 y 2 puntos por debajo siempre de las puntuaciones de otro de los “gurús”

Las impresiones que han despertado nuestros vinos en él nos hacen creer que estamos en la dirección correcta en el trabajo realizado, y nos reafirma en que la calidad de nuestros vinos se mantiene constante en el tiempo, añada tras añada, algo que solamente está al alcance de las bodegas más prestigiosas de la historia.

A continuación exponemos la crítica de cada uno de nuestros vinos puntuados:

2013 Bodegas Valduero Yunquera Albillo Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y Leon – 90: Light yellow. Vibrant lemon zest and pear aromas are complemented by anise and chamomile, with a minerally quality in the background. In the mouth, dried pear and citrus pith flavors are given spine by juicy acidity and sharpened by a gingery nuance. Closes with firm grip and very good stony persistence. Albillo, a.k.a. albillo mayor, is native to the area and although these vines are planted in the Ribera del Duero zone, the variety is not allowed to bear the designation–hence the generic, overarching Castillo y Leon moniker. There are reportedly just over five hectares of albillo left in Spain.
2010 Bodegas Valduero Crianza Ribera del Duero – 91: Deep ruby. Sexy, oak-spiced aromas of cherry, blackberry and violet, with a smoky note. Sweet, incisive dark fruit flavors are firmed by juicy acidity and pick up a hint of spicecake with air. Fleshy but focused wine with strong finishing punch, slow-building tannins and very good persistence. I’d let this very promising wine rest for a few years.

2011 Bodegas Valduero Una Cepa Ribera del Duero – 90: Youthful purple. Spice- and smoke-tinged dark berries and cherry on the highly perfumed nose. Shows very good vivacity and focus thanks to juicy acidity, picking up a hint of lavender with aeration. Sweet vanilla and mocha notes accent the finish, which is framed by gentle tannins that fade slowly into the wine’s fruit. I find this to be quite approachable. This vineyard of head-trained tempranillo vines reportedly issues one bottle per vine planted per vintage.

2009 Bodegas Valduero Ribera Del Duero Reserva – 91: Opaque ruby. Powerful oak-spiced cherry and blackberry aromas are energized by a spicy nuance. Plush cherry-vanilla and dark berry flavors show very good depth and power, with cola and mocha elements gaining strength with air. Finishes on a smoky note, with an echo of vanilla and velvety tannins. Quite approachable, as is the case with most ’09s, but this also has the depth to age.
