Wine tasting notes

Brilliant, limpid, pale gold in color. A potently aromatic nose displaying varietal notes of fennel and green almond with white floral undertones. Silky and firm on the palate, with fine, elegant acidity conferring great length

Food matching

A lovely aperitif, it is also a perfect match for seafood, fresh or fried fish, and goes wonderfully with salads. Best served at 8–10ºC.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2009) - 90 to 93 pts

Wine Advocate #195 Jun 2011 - Jay Miller - The 2009 Celeste is 100% Tempranillo from Ribera del Duero aged for 12 months in French and American oak. It offers up an already complex nose of cedar, exotic spices, incense, lavender, espresso, and blackberry. This is followed by a supple, spicy, ripe, layered wine that will evolve for another 3-4 years and drink well through 2021 if not longer.


Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2009) - 89 pts

Sep 12. By Josh Raynolds - Vivid ruby. Ripe dark berry aromas and flavors are brightened by notes of candied licorice and mocha. Pliant and gently tannic on a finish that leaves peppery spice and bitter chocolate notes in its wake. Give this wine a little air time.


JancisRobinson.com (2012) - 16 pts

Tasted Aug 2015 - It has a moderate bouquet based on spices such as liquorice and cinnamon, positive reduction and black cherry aromas underneath. Quite refined tannins and balanced fruit character. A well-made, classic wine, the archetype of Ribera Crianza. Lots of tobacco and cedar at the back palate. (FC)


Wine Spectator (2012) - 90 pts

Oct 2015 - A polished texture carries reserved but harmonious flavors of black cherry, licorice, smoke, tar and mineral in this rather austere red. Well-integrated tannins impart structure, giving this depth and focus. Drink now through 2022.


James Suckling (2012) - 92 pts

Aromas of dried fruit, leather and spice follow through to a full body with soft and silky tannins and a long and fresh finish. Drink now


Wine Enthusiast (2012) - 91 pts

Earthy berry, spice, leather and vanilla aromas are textbook for the region. This Crianza feels fresh but sturdy, with meaty tannins. Briar, cherry and medicinal plum and berry flavors finish with sweeping chocolate and brambly spice notes.


Natalie McLean (2011) - 90 pts

Juicy, dark and delicious! Big black fleshy fruit wrapped in a smoky blanket. Terrific for this price. The finish is saturated with dark fruit flavours and aromas that provoke the desire for another glass. A perfect pairing for The Good Wife. Polished tannins with a long finish.
