Nice presentation ordinary Rioja
This wine appears artful and classic but is only a very ordinary light Rioja
A truly wonderful bottle
Every now and then you take your first sip of something new and it just melts you. That's what this bottle did for me. Promising on pouring with a rustic cherry look about it. Bold flavours of blackberry, plum and oak with a hint of black raisin. Average acidity and tannins made my taste buds "dance" with each taste. My mouth was actually watering between sips. This was wine heaven for me. I can't wait to order my next bottle.
Fast, efficient, great value and kept updated very well
I was looking for some Museum wine and found Vinedos quickly on the net, the price was great, web site very easy, delivery from Spain very fast and I was kept informed of delivery progress daily, very impressed. Then the wine was delicious, full bodied, deep lasting flavours, superb with lamb and on its own. 5 star rating
A consistently good wine from my experience. It has presence without being overbearing. The variety of red berry flavours makes this wine a great accompaniment to game meats yet it remains an easy drink when you have the time to sit and savour it. Yes, make time to drink this wine!
Interesting exhibit from the Museum
I had never tried a Cigales wine before but I was impelled to try the Museum Reserva mainly due to its provenance (part of the Baron de Lay and Coto Group I found it a surprisingly elegant and balanced wine equal to Ribero Reservas. The price is good and it will improve with age.
Finca Museum Viñedos y Bodegas
Finca Museum was the first winery set up by the winemaking group Barón de Ley outside of its home territory of La Rioja. Committed to expanding into new wine regions offering a good relationship between quality and price, the group decided to open a new winery in Cigales first, starting out with a unique and spectacular vineyard where 100-year-old vines thrive in pebble-covered soils to produce perfectly ripe fruit. Successfully expanding, the winery now...
