Wie soll man einen dermaßen überwältigenden Wein beschreiben, bei dessen Verkostung wir in Verzückung geraten sind? Der Emilio Moro Malleolus de Sanchomartin gehört zu den ganz großen Weinen der Welt und sollte in keinem entsprechenden Weinkeller fehlen. Wir vergeben definitiv die 100 Punkte. Leider ist dieser Gigant nur in sehr begrenzter Flaschenanzahl verfügbar.
Eine intensive, tiefe kirschrote Farbe. Komplex und elegant mit subtilen floralen Noten, Lakritze und schwarzer Johannisbeere. Die balsamischen Noten der französischen Eiche sind perfekt in den Emilio Moro Malleolus de Sanchomartin integriert. Sehr weiche, warme Taninstruktur, die in ein nahezu unendlich langes Finish übergeht.
2010 Bodegas Emilio Moro Malleolus de Sancho Martin
Wine Advocate # 214 (Aug 2014)
Drink 2016 - 2025
The 2010 Malleolus de Sanchomartin is from a single plot of over 50-year-old vines in Pesquera de Duero on chalk soils that provide for vertical, long and mineral wines. The wine went through malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels, as they believe they are better suited for the elegance of the juice produced from the chalky soils. The wine is powerful and concentrated, but overall, extremely elegant and balanced and with clear chalky minerality that sticks to your teeth. The palate is medium to full-bodied with a fine, silky texture, very good acidity and freshness. This could be drunk now, but I believe it will be even better in a couple of years. Drink 2016-2025. Emilio Moro is a leading producer of modern, ripe, exuberant, showy and well-oaked Tempranillos from Ribera del Duero, which has had a big following among fans of that style. Having said that, I found the wines better balanced, with more judicious use of the oak compared with the ones produced five years ago. They work 200 hectares of vineyards that are vinified in their winery in Pesquera de Duero. All their vineyards are planted with the old Tempranillo vines planted with branches of the old vines they had in the Valderramiro and Resalso vineyards. They replace some 15 hectares every year to keep the old average age. The wines are more integrated and balanced and show less oak than in the past, while they are warmer and richer in style than the Cepa 21 wines they also produce. They are very happy with the 2011 harvest, Javier and Jose Moro told me they consider it even better for them than 2010. On the contrary, there will be no 2012 versions of Malleolus, or the single-vineyard bottling, as the year was too warm for their liking.

95/100 Punkte Wine Spectator, JG2010: A rich, creamy texture carries expressive flavors of black cherry, cassis, toast, licorice and mineral in this polished red. Shows great depth and intensity, yet remains graceful and harmonious, with a lovely floral finish. Drink now through 2025.
94/100 Punkte Wine Enthusiast, JG2010: Graphite, maple and other oaky aromas dominate this lush, pitch-black Tinto Fino. A chewy, dense mouthfeel is rich as an oil baron, while oak-driven flavors of vanilla and baking spices accent blackberry and cassis. On the finish, this is monster-sized and full of blue-fruit deliciousness. Drink through 2020.
