Vega Sicilia Unico Magnum 2007 1.5L

92% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo), 8% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Na de gisting rijpte de wijn eerst 24 maanden op grote houten vaten, gevolgd door 22 maanden op nieuwe Frans en Amerikaans eiken. Hierna weer 30 maanden op vaten van een jaar oud en vervolgens nog 30 maanden op grote houten vaten. Totaal een rijpingstijd op hout van bijna 9 jaar!
Het is verbazingwekkend hoe jong de wijn zich nu presenteert en hoe goed het hout in de wijn is geïntegreerd.
Complexe, zeer geconcentreerde, donker gekleurde, bijna zwarte wijn. Rijpe bessen, kersen, bramen, prachtige tannines, tabak, mineralen, cacao met een afdronk die niet te evenaren is.
Op dronk, maar kan zich tenminste tot 2025 nog verder ontwikkelen.

The Wine Advocate:

"2007 was a cold vintage in Ribera and it produced lighter, fresher wines (perhaps not as problematic as 2008, but there was also frost in 2007). The wine might be a tad lighter than other vintages, but it's more structured than 2008; it combines elegance and power, is nicely balanced and should be able to develop in bottle for many years, although the quick evolution of the bottle once opened made me hesitate about its drinking window. Let's hope I'm wrong. 80,000 bottles produced.

A couple of weeks before my appointment at Vega Sicilia, the big news broke: Javier Ausás, long time technical director at the Vega Sicilia group (recently renamed Tempos Vega Sicilia, a name that is a little pompous if you ask me), was leaving. A few days before I went, his replacement was named: Gonzalo Iturriaga. Who? That's exactly what everyone thought too! Iturriaga is an agricultural engineer with some experience in Ribera, one year in the early days of Alonso del Yerro, and then five years in Extremadura in charge of the wines of Habla, an ambitious project in a southwestern zone of Spain off the beaten track that didn't really take off. He spent his last five years selling yeasts and other oenological products for the French company Lamothe-Abiet, a CV that a priori looks a little poor for someone who is taking over the most prestigious winery from Spain. But let's give him time -- it will take a few years until we see any of his wines in the market -- and hope for the best. Other than that, they are releasing Único 2007 and 2008 before they sell 2005 and 2006, as the former are lighter vintages, and the latter are more powerful and require/benefit from some time in bottle. After tasting the wines, I followed the opened bottles and was a little worried to see that the wines showed plenty of oxidative aromas the day after, not what I expect for wines designed for a long and slow development in bottle."
