Characteristics of Quinta Milú La Cometa

Quinta Milú La Cometa is a red wine made with the Tempranillo variety (Tinto Fino) in the D.O. Ribera de Duero by the Quinta Milú winery.

Good, artisan, local wines. This is how Quinta Milú describes their produce. The winery was a project started by winemaker Germán R. Blanco in the town of La Aguilera (Burgos). A small family winery under the Lively-wines brand that works its own vineyards in an organic, sustainable way, using microvinification.

Quinta Milú La Cometa comes from vineyards that have an average age of 70 years, planted at 900 metres in sandy-clay and clay-calcareous soils. The harvest is carried out manually with strict selection of the grapes from each plot.

Once in the winery, the Quinta Milú La Cometa is not destemmed or crushed and the grapes from some plots are pressed by foot. Vinification happens separately and different deposits are used depending on each plot. Open barrels, amphorae and oak vats are used. It ferments with indigenous yeasts at a controlled temperature between 23 and 25ºC. Then it is aged in used French oak barrels for 13 months. It is not filtered, stabilised, or clarified.

Quinta Milú La Cometa is a traditional, organic and sustainable red wine that is perfect for those looking to enjoy the essence of the Ribera de Duero.

Tasting notes Quinta Milú La Cometa

Quinta Milú La Cometa 2017 is a concentrated red wine with black fruit, toasted and balsamic notes. On the palate it is powerful, elegant and well structured.
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.
