New Release: 2013 Vega Sicilia Unico, 98 Points (JS)
We are delighted to offer the newly released 2013 vintage of Spain’s most important wine, the Vega Sicilia Unico. Rated at 98 points by James Suckling and 18++ by Jancis Robinson, this is a stellar Unico with an immense future.
For James Suckling, this is a classic and “Caressing, seductive and ripe, but with underlying freshness”. Jancis Robinson (a critic who is never easily impressed) is a huge fan and found this 2013 to be “sharp and intense” and the “Essence of Vega Sicilia”. For those, therefore, that wish to see why Vega Sicilia is so revered, the 2013 is the perfect option.

This has a polished and complex nose of poached plums, dark cherries, tea leaves, graphite, milk chocolate and a touch of caramel. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm yet creamy tannins. Caressing, seductive and ripe, but with underlying freshness. 97% tempranillo and 3% cabernet sauvignon. Tasted from magnum. The normal bottle will be released 2023 and the magnum in 2025. Try after 2023

Dark crimson. Intense medicinal nose. Very sharp and intense and hard work in terms of acid and tannin but very promising. Essence of Vega Sicilia
