Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

There was no 2014 bottled of this wine, so I tasted the 2015 El Castro de Valtuille, from a warm and powerful year when the challenge was to keep the balance and poise. They managed nicely with this old-vine cuvée from different plots in Valtuille. The wine matured in 225- and 500-liter oak barrels. It has earthy notes of truffle and forest floor and a compact palate with abundant fine-grained tannins, with character provided by its elegant rusticity. This has the profile of a more expensive wine, with depth and clout to develop in bottle for a decade. It's still quite young and lively. Very good value. 9,000 bottles.
