Corimbo I 2016
Elaborado al 100% con Tinta del país nacida de viñedos viejos de viticultura ecológica plantados en el entorno de La Horra y Roa de Duero, Corimbo I es el ejemplo de que una Ribera del Duero diferente es posible. Elegante, intenso y fresco al mismo tiempo, esta añada es quizá la más corpulenta pero también una de las más equilibradas hasta la fecha.

Similar to its younger brother, the top-of-the-range 2016 Corimbo I shows superbly, more old style Ribera del Duero, with power and rusticity but also elegance and balance. It has a nose that is complex and subtle, floral and spicy. It's medium-bodied and balanced, with a chalky texture and velvety mouthfeel. It's still a little tannic, but the tannins are fine and elegant and should benefit from some more time in bottle. This has to be one of the finest vintages they have produced in Ribera del Duero.
Bodegas La Horra's top wine is built to age, eschewing easy drinkability in its youth. This hails from vineyards in five higher altitude Burgos vineyards with an average age of 60 years. Intense, savoury and sinewy, with some chalky freshness, notes of incense and dried herbs and layers of damson and tobacco leaf. Give it a few more years in bottle. 2023-28.
Fresh and creamy with blackberries, cedar and some pine cone and vanilla. Broad and full body, piled with fine-grained tannins that frame the blackberries, dark chocolate and spices on the palate. Tight and youthful. Better to give it two years to settle. Drink from 2024.
