Product Description
Details

Bagús is a Ribera del Duero red wine produced by the López Cristobal winery.

This Spanish red wine is a single varietal Tinta del País (a.k.a Tempranillo) coming fom over 80-year-old vines located in a single, exceptional estate at the very heart of the Ribera del Duero DO.

Because of the exacting quality standards of the winery, this wine is only produced in exceptional vintages.

The grapes were harvested and meticulously selected in the cellar.

Once the vinification process was completed, this red wine by Bodega López Cristobal was aged for 14 months in new 80% French and 20 % American oak barrels.

Finally, this estate red wine was aged for a further 18 months in the cellar prior to its commercial release.

Additional Information
Appearance

Bagús has a very bright, intense, clean, high cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.

Nose

This single estate wine from Ribera del Duero made from Tinta del País is remarkably deep and pure. Complex aromas of black fruit, liquorice, clove, cardamom, cedar, chocolate, fine leather, sesame, withered leaves, underscored by nuances of mineral and dry earth.

Palate

Bold and robust, this Crianza red wine by Bodega López Cristóbal still shows some rough edges that will mellow within a few years. This is an age-worthy wine, with an exceptional acidity, mighty tannins and a tremendous richness and complexity that only needs some time to settle. Very long finish, with remembrances of balsam, blackcurrants, charcoal, cocoa and spices.

Our personal opinion

Bagús 2012 is a remarkable red wine that deserves the attention of serious wine lovers. Great ageing potential.

Top-notch, little-known Ribera. Earthy, grainy, wonderfully tight, no fat at all. Profound.

Little-known producer - for me at least. However, I was very impressed with this wine. The old vines bring layers of depth and authenticity. Winemaking is exquisite.
