Hello Wine Lover!
We are placidly confident that this selection of Tempranillo will be to your liking, below in the details you will find the history of this wonderful Wine Reserve.
The Domain of the Eagle Reserve is a mixture of old vines from different hills of the town of La Aguilera (Burgos), mostly covered with tempranillo although in coplantation with other red and white varieties such as the albillo. It is an aromatic, expressive and floral wine that has managed to preserve a clearly associable character to the Ribera del Duero to which it adds subtlety and freshness.
His style has conquered international critics and catapulted him to the podium of the great Spanish reds; such are its energy, its balance and the emotion it causes every sip. Made with perfectly mature whole clusters, the must of the different varieties macerates together, as a parcel wine; the wild yeasts are responsible for directing a slow cold fermentation in stainless tanks. Malolactic and subsequent aging occurs in oak, or cubillos, as the barrels in the area are known. Middle layer, something more fragile than one ventures for a large riverside red, reddish color with violet reflections and tinted and slow tear.
The nose mixes cherries and ripe blackberries with very fine smoked oak memories on a comforting lactic background. Mouth somewhat austere and very mineral, loaded with fruit in season in perfect balance with the earthy notes that transport us to his vineyard of origin. Long finish dress of fine bitterness. Around 7000 bottles of this great wine were bottled, many of which now compare with the Valbuena de Vega Sicilia, which is situated right by the great wines of the appellation. DOMINIO DEL ÁGUILA is a family winery based in La Aguilera, a small village in RIBERA DEL DUERO, and run by a couple formed by Jorge Monzón and Isabel Rodero, vigneron and architect respectively. Since 2010 we have joined our efforts to make a dream come true… The winery is within the “Consejo Regulador de la Denominación de Origen Ribera del Duero” and within the “Consejo Ecologico de Castilla y León”, the institution that regulates ORGANIC WINES.
The domain's greatest asset is the vineyard. we count with 30 hectares of very old vines, mostly in organic farming, apart from 5 additional hectares relatively young (under 50 years). We are grapes suppliers of some of the main wineries in the region since more than 10 vintages. Our passion is the vineyard! Jorge comes from a family of many generations of vignerons.
His studies were based in ‘Soil, viticulture and oenology’ at the Universities of Bordeaux and Burgundy. He worked with prestigious wineries such as Domaine De La Romanée-Conti for more than two years. He has also worked in Spain in the Vega Sicilia Group for a year and as technical director of Bodegas Arzuaga-Navarro for nine years. Since 2013 he works full time in Dominio del Águila. Through all those years learning and gaining experience, we were also devoted to the recovering of family vineyards, till we have managed to get together as owners a very high quality vine patrimony, some real Grand Crus… where the ‘tempranillo’ is the true protagonist, living in a very friendly way with other varieties such as ‘blanca del país’, ‘bobal’, ‘garnacha’, ‘albillo’, ‘tempranillo gris’, etc.
