Alion Ribera del Duero `Alion` 2008, 750ml (WA95) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Alion Ribera del Duero `Alion`

750ml

Vintage: 2008
Region: Spain
Appellation: Ribera del Duero

WA95
Rated 95 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `If I was asked to hold up a bottle of what modern Ribera del Duero should taste like and what is should aspire to, the 2008 Alion would be the one in my hand. It has more intensity and volume on the nose when compared directly with the 2007. Tasted in February 2012, and then in January 2013, it remains a fabulous expression of Ribera del Duero. It boasts of heavenly bouquet of black plum, crushed violets and tobacco that soar from the glass, while displaying a level of delineation that would serve a lesson to many of its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, silky-smooth tannins that belie the structure underneath. The acidity lends the 2008 a little more edginess than the 2007, while the finish has a wonderful sense of symmetry and focus. World class. Drink 2016-2025+.`
