Characteristics of Dominio del Águila Reserva

Dominio del Águila Reserva is a red wine from Ribera del Duero produced by Dominio del Águila in the town of La Aguilera, Burgos.

Dominio del Águila is a winery founded by Jorge Monzón and Isabel Rodero in 2010. Jorge started his oenology studies in Burdeos and continued his professional career in emblematic wineries like Romanée-Conti and Vega Sicilia before ending up at the Arzuaga wineries.

They cultivate 30 hectares of eco-friendly vineyards and the Tempranillo is the main variety planted with others such as Bobal, Garnacha and Albillo on sandy-clayey-rocky soil depending on the plot.

This old vineyard is more than 85 years old and is situated in the same town of La Aguilera. It is planted on sandy-lime soil 900 metres above sea level. Tempranillo is the main variety in the vineyard, but being an old vineyard, there are also other minor varieties present such as Bobal and Albillo between the grapevines.

Dominio del Águila Reserva ferments and macerates the whole plot at the same time in stainless steel tanks and with its own yeast. With a lengthy maceration process, it is decanted into French oak barrels where malolactic fermentation and a later 35 month ageing is carried out.

Dominio del Águila Reserva is an aged wine, with an enormous complexity which will continue to evolve over the years.

Tasting notes Dominio del Águila Reserva

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.
The 2015 vintage started with a winter that had good groundwater reserves. The spring was warm and dry until well into the month of June, when there were intense rainfall at the beginning of the blooming. A summer with some well spread out storms gave way to a very dry autumn. The harvest was slightly ahead of the usual dates, but the analytical and organoleptic features, and the balance of the berries, were ideal. Thus enabled the harvest to take place at the optimal ripening time. The wines from this vintage, which was classified as excellent, have a good colour intensity, significant fruity notes on the nose and a high tannic potential in the mouth, with sweet tannins that indicate the good phenolic ripening of the berries. A vintage reminiscent of the exceptional 2005 vintage.
After the withering in a mild winter, the warm start of spring brought sprouting forward by almost 10 days. The summer, which was quite cool and dry, enabled the good evolution of the growth cycle and a balanced ripening. This was a vintage without setbacks. Worth mentioning is the high production of this vintage due to good climatic behaviour during the harvest. The wines from this vintage have great colour intensity, and a high fruity expression on the nose and in the mouth. Their balance and tannic potential stand out; these features show us the great potential to produce great wines for ageing, and for lighter and fruitier productions.
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.
Regarding climate, the 2012 vintage started with the sprouting of the vines in the beginning of spring with the cooler temperatures. In May, generous rainfall and high temperatures gave way to a generalised drought throughout the summer. Luckily, the rains started at the onset of the ripening. The precipitations at the beginning of October, and the nice temperatures during the harvest, resulted in the a uniform phenolic ripening. The wines from this vintage have a good alcoholic strength, balanced by moderate levels of acidity, with a good colour and phenolic intensity, and a suitable level of tannins, all important features for a perfect ageing.
