Review

The Finca Museum winery was the first project developed by the winemakers Grupo Barón de Ley outside of La Rioja, where they started out. Committed to finding other top vineyards, they chose the appellation of Cigales where they could obtain a good quality/price relationship for their wines and perfectly ripened grapes thanks to the pebble covered soils here, home to vines over 70 years old.

The DO Cigales has a solid reputation in the world of rosé wines, but for some reason their excellent red wines don't share the same popularity. However, the Museum Reserva dispels any concerns regarding red wines from here. One of the few reservas produced in Cigales, it is aged for 24 months in new French oak barrels during which time the wine is racked five times. Following this ageing, the wine stands in the bottle for 12 months before being released onto the market.

An intense and elegant red, combining the best aspects of a wise ageing process with the maximum fruity expressiveness of the Tempranillo. Toasted and roasted aromas embellish a ripe fruit which refreshes with hints of spice. It is complex and structured in the mouth, but also balanced and noble. A splendid red wine with intense minerality which is sure to convince anyone who tries it.

Museum Reserva

A lovely full bodied typical Rioja. Bursting with chocolate with a hint of raspberry. Extremely versatile regarding the foods it complements but is a perfect match with red meat.

Great red

So easy to like, its almost dangerous! Truly a great red.

Hervorragend!

Direkt nach dem Öffnen Vanille pur, tolles Fass, rund, weich, elegant. Man möchte nur noch Schnüffeln ;-)). Auch im Geschmack für diese Preisklasse ein Traum und hält all das, was der Geruch verspricht.
