Vega Sicilia Come to Roberson
Published by Roberson Wine on 02/04/2009
Last night we held one of our most exciting tastings of the year – a fascinating look at Spain’s aristocratic wine estate, Vega Sicilia.
Winemaker Xavier Ausas took charge of proceedings, which consisted of a tasting of Pintia ’06, Alion ’04 and ’05 before the main business of the evening, four vintages of Valbuena (’04, ’02, ’97, ’83), four of Unico (’99, ’80, ’74, ’69), a lot (if that’s the right word for this non-vintage blend) of Unico Reserva Especial and a 1976 Oremus Tokaji just to finish things off.
Personally I thought the ’74 Unico was the most outstanding – a really fascinating wine at its peak now and with an indescribable character that was sheer perfection.
Thanks everyone for coming to this brilliant event, and especially thanks to Xavier for presenting the wines. There’s one more tasting left in this session, The French Walkabout, which should be a really enjoyable evening so don’t miss it. The next schedule is being finalised as we speak and will be posted in the tastings section of the site in the next couple of weeks – check back often.
