Characteristics of Dominio de Es Viñas Viejas de Soria

Dominio de Es Viñas Viejas de Soria is a red wine produced in the D.O. Ribera del Duero by the winery Dominio de Es, in San Esteban de Gormaz, Soria.

After 10 years as a technical manager in Dominio de Atauta, Bertrand Sourdais starts this personal project in Ribeira del Duero. Dominio de Es is formed by 4 vineyard areas (La Mata, Llanos del Almendro, Camino Olmillos and Valdegatiles) with pre-phylloxera vines on sandy soils, located at approximately 1000 metres of altitude.

The vineyards are cultivated biodynamically and, in the winery, they aim for a friendly and steady production, without the tannins that Bertrand Sourdais reflected in their wines some years ago. Ageing for long periods in large used barrels to give value to the finesse of the terroir where these fabulous wines are made.


Dominio de Es Viñas Viejas de Soria is a wine made from Tinto Fino that comes from vines that are over 100 years old. It has a small percentage of Albillo that is added to it in the vineyard itself. They are manually harvested and fermented with 50% of the stems at a low temperature for 17 days. Wine is aged for 20 months in double-use Romanée Conti wine barrels (Burgundy).

Tasting notes Dominio de Es Viñas Viejas de Soria

2017 has been defined by widespread frosts in the north of Spain, but Ribera del Duero Soriana has been saved by the usual late budding of the vineyard. The winter was dry and not too cold, which was followed by a somewhat atypical spring with slightly higher temperatures and little rain. Budding was staggered, and flowering was rapid and quite early. A summer heat wave at the end of June caused a water shortage and slowed down the growth of the grapes. Then, in July, temperatures dropped and it rained, which helped rehydrate the grapes. The veraison happened slowly, due to cool temperatures at night. The grapes were harvested between September 21 and 23. According to Bertrand Sourdais: “The wines combine intensity and ripeness with an organic quality due to minimum cold temperatures and summer rains. A precise vintage thanks to extremely fast flowering.”
After a dry winter, spring came loaded with rain. Thankfully, this water was stored, since it was much needed during the extremely dry summer. The low temperatures during spring delayed the sprouting of the vines, which led the growth cycle to start with delay. However, this delay was offset thanks to the high temperatures recorded in July and August, to the point of delaying ripening in those younger vineyards. The 2016 vintage beat the production record of the 2014 vintage. And not only in production, but also in quality due to the excellent weather conditions and the excellent health of the vineyards. The wines from this vintage offer a lot of volume, with a good capacity to face the passing of time, with roundness and spectacular tannins. A harvest reminiscent of those of the late 80s and early 90s.
Dominio de Es Viñas Viejas de Soria 2015 is a fresh, complex and mature wine. An excellent vintage with a great balance between maturity and freshness. A great deal of fruit on the nose, with elegant toasted notes, spices and a very distinguished mineral touch. On the palate it is robust, full and very fresh.
Dominio de Es Viñas Viejas de Soria 2014 is a deep, mature wine, with minerality and freshness. A very good vintage, where the expression of the fruit takes more prominence, especially on the nose. In the mouth, it stands out more for its robustness and the good balance between maturity and freshness.
This was a complicated year. Although the sprouting of the vines was slightly early, the low temperatures recorded during the spring delayed the growth cycle, which no longer recovered in the summer, despite having a warm month of July. The harvest was carried out at a fast pace, and with the extra effort of the viticulturers, who discarded the fruit that did not meet the optimal conditions. This way, they made sure that they avoided the probable effect of the botrytis attacks due to the rains they had around this time. The wines from this vintage, rated as a good one, offer good colour intensity, great fruit expression and a lot of freshness.
