Although there’s no doubt that we’re living in difficult times, when the ability to adapt has become key in coping with the negative side of recent months, at Bodegas Arzuaga, we’ve also been fortunate enough to continue to receive good news that fills us with pride and represents a real boost for our wines.
A few months ago, we shared the news with you that the jury for the Guía Peñín, Spain’s most prestigious wine guide, had given ten Bodegas Arzuaga wines scores between 90 and 99 points in its latest edition, including naming our Arzuaga Albillo as one of its six ‘giants’. Now, we’ve received some good news from the UK. Namely, the British Master of Wine Tim Atkin, one of the industry’s most prestigious critics, has shared his latest scores and Arzuaga has again achieved great results.
We’re pleased to report that Atkin awarded our Gran Arzuaga 2014 a score of 95 points, positioning it among the Ribera del Duero Top 100 wines with scores of 93 points or higher. Two other Bodegas Arzuaga wines were also included on this list, with our Reserva Especial 2015 and Arzuaga Reserva 2016 each having achieved 93 points in Atkin’s latest evaluation.
Additionally, three other Bodegas Arzuaga wines scored 90 to 92 points: Arzuaga Gran Reserva 2010, with 92 points; Arzuaga Crianza 2018, with 91 points; and Rosae, Arzuaga’s rosé wine that we make only using the Tempranillo variety, with 90 points. Finally, La Planta, the winery’s most popular red, achieved 88 points.
These are all great scores that reaffirm the commitment to making high-quality wines that we’ve been dedicated to for decades here at Arzuaga. It’s always a great source of pride to receive positive feedback on our wines, and we love seeing you choose our wines for both your everyday and your special occasions. Moreover, when this appreciation is endorsed by wine experts such as Tim Atkin, we feel even prouder. We’ll keep working with the same excitement and quality that defines us, and we hope that you’ll continue alongside us on our path. Cheers!
