Characteristics of Museum Real Reserva

Museum Real Reserva is a red wine by la Bodega Museum, belonging to Baron de Ley Group, made in Cigales.

It is a single-variety Tinta del País made with grapes from very old vines, over 70 years old, planted in calcareous clay soils with boulders on the surface. The farm is located about 800 metres above sea level. This area suffers from a severe continental climate, with large temperature contrast of up to 20°Cs between day and night. Summers are very hot and very cold, winters are rainy. Springs tend to be milder but with a high risk of frost. The weather is severe, which limits the performance of the vineyard. Autumns are usually rather cold, helping to obtain a slow ripening of the grapes.
The harvest is done manually and the grapes are transported in small boxes to the cellar, where they are stripped and then sorted. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 29°C for 10 days.
After the fermentation, the wine is macerated for 30 to 35 days ensuring maximum extraction. Museum Real Reserva is aged in new French oak barrels for 24 months, there are rackings 5 times each year. Unfiltered, it spends a minimum of 12 months in the bottle before being marketed.

Tasting notes Museum Real Reserva

Sight

Ruby red with garnet reflections.

Nose

Complex and delicate nose with outstanding roasted and wood notes from aging, together with liquorice, red fruit, balsamic and minerals.

Taste

The taste is elegant, subtle and very silky. There are aromas of fruit and well-polished tannins due to passing through the wood.

The aftertaste is long.

Sight Ruby red colour with deep burgundy glimmers. Nose A delicate perfume of roasted notes and spices, with notes of liquorice, red fruits and forest fruits, and balsamic, mineral touches in the background. All of these aromas are assembled into a perfect point of ripeness which provides the wine with a great complexity. Taste Delicate, subtle and elegant attack in the mouth, very broad on the palate with round tannins. Creamy with lots of volume. Silky and very expressive in the mouth, with a very long finish.
Sight

Pillory with garnet red edging and deep layer.

Nose

Spicy notes of oak aging, combined with aromas of jam and fruit. Subtle and enveloping, with smoky cigar box nuances. With oxygenation notes are very ripe red fruit.

Taste Powerful, fleshy and with volume, the ripe fruit have smoothed the tannins resulting to a velvety, flavorful and expressive set. Magnificent final step of the mouth and very long.

Reviews

D.O. Cigales

Winery Museum

The D.O Cigales was until recently a region that produced wines that were defined by the rural and traditional nature of the region and its ancient history. The wines here were made using traditional techniques such as stone vats, treading the grapes by foot and fermentation left to the vagaries of nature. However, over the past two decades, the reality of wine here has become something very different. One only has to enter any of the of the regions renowned wineries to notice that their wines have taken the highway of modernity, shaking off their old reputation. The region has continued to produce rosés, although now juicier, fresher and well balanced. The region is also leaning ever more towards the production of red wines, following the example set by other regions along the Duero river, although perhaps with the difference that here they may be easier to drink.
