Review

Germán R. Blanco's personal project in Ribera del Duero, Quinta Milú, surprised everyone as soon as the first vintage appeared. While still maintaining the historic Ribera character, they seem to be in a different category where the grapes are the star. Only the most essential interventions are carried out in the winemaking process, ensuring Milú is a wine where the fruit does the talking, not the wood. Different with every vintage, it is a wine of tradition in that it has been created to recover long-lost traditional flavours. An easy-going wine whose purpose is simply to be drunk and enjoyed.

The winery defines the wine as 100% fermented grape juice using artisanal methods. Its Tempranillo grapes are grown at 900 metres above sea level in chalky-clay soils in the town of La Aguilera in Burgos. The 50-year-old vines are bush-trained and not irrigated so as to obtain a much more concentrated fruit. Grapes are hand-collected on different days to ensure each grape is perfectly ripe. The wine is aged in used wood barrels which are often very large. Local yeasts and a minimal addition of sulphites just before bottling, also help to understand how the non-intervention process produces a wine which is truly special.

It has a sharp and honest nose, with aromas of cherry and undergrowth. Characterful in the mouth, it combines a virtually wild acidity with abundant and mature tannins. The ever-present fruit reminds us of the crispy grape skins and feel of the soil. Violets and subtle vegetal hints embellish the red fruit aromas captured at their peak ripeness. All this, topped off with a saline and flavoursome finish. It may be the most modest wine from this winery, but it's marking the way for any others who aim to express a clear image of the different Ribera terroirs.

Light and easy-drinking

This wine from Ribera del Duero surprised me. I had expected the Tempranillo grape to produce something much more robust, but this is very light and fresh in the mouth with plenty of fruit and almost a slight zest about it. It wasn't the right partner for our roast beef on New Year's Eve, but pair it with the right dish and you'll have a light and quaffable treat.

Imprescindible

Con los ojos cerrados, una recomendación para cualquier paladar. Exquisito. La primera vez que lo caté me pregunté: si esto es Ribera del Duero, ¿de dónde salen los otros vinos con etiqueta de esta DO? Probé el Cometa y llegué a la conclusión de que estos son los verdaderos vinos del terruño ribereño. Los demás, deben de nacer de la madera porque de terruño, poco si nada transmiten. Con ganas de conocer los demás vinos de esta bodega, ¡imprescindible!

Un vino diferente de la Ribera del Duero Canasta

Es un vino muy fácil de ver, de trago largo, muy fructuoso, y Gero, nos ha gustado volveremos a comprarlo. . Recomendable para el tapeo, una comida informal, barbacoas con amigos y familia.

Buen vino de la Ribera

Muy buen vino Ribera del Duero, se nota la mano experta que trata con cuidado la crianza de la uva y su manufactura en la elaboración de este gran vino, aunque he probado otras añadas que me han gustado más, pero de todas maneras, granvino.
