Slope or text of the back label:

In the heart of the Ribera del Duero, in the highest lands, we have selected 8000 hundred-year-old vineyards of Tempranillo, which survive in tiny plots and which are still manually planted today.
The exceptional conditions of the 2012 harvest allowed us to elaborate this wine, intense, elegant and of great breadth

8000 by Marqués de Burgos wine review 

Marqués de Burgos is the winery through which a classic of La Rioja has been located in the Ribera del Duero, we speak of Lan Bodegas of course.
Today we had the privilege of trying a very special wine with a very limited circulation and that only takes place in vintages considered suitable.
Strains chosen in three small plots of the locality of Quintana del Pidio in Burgos produce a very limited circulation of 3,950 bottles, which is a privilege to be able to taste this wine.
The first impression after proving it is that we are before a delicatessen, before a great wine.
I am passionate about the singular wines, but if they also bring a stamp from the Ribera del Duero, I am doubly enthusiastic.
Very powerful and full body, intense, very red, very shallow.

In our dinner accompanied a barbecue of meats and their pairing was perfect, very enjoyed, very alive.
We loved it, we can not recommend it ...
If you can find a bottle ...
