Today’s release is coming to the market above a number of recent vintages currently available. Buyers looking for value may consider the 2006 vintage, which was released this time last year. It was scored 98 points by Luis Gutierrez (The Wine Advocate) and is currently available at a discount to today’s release.
Vega Sicilia Valbuena No 5 2014 has also been offered today at £1,000 per 12×75. In his tasting note, Suckling noted that “a lot of work was done in the vineyard in 2014 to get the yields right”. He goes on to say that the resulting wine is “superb” and awarded it 96 points.
