Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Marques de Riscal Baron de Chirel 2016

Marques de Riscal Baron de Chirel 2016 is a premium quality wine that boasts a deep and intense dark cherry color. It is a wine that is full of life and vitality, exhibiting hardly any signs of aging. The aromas of this wine are highly intense, with a prominent toasty and spicy scent, contributed by the French oak, accompanied by notes of ripe black fruit.

On the palate, the wine is fresh and unctuous, with soft and polished tannins, with only a subtle hint of wood. The complexity and elegance of this wine are truly exceptional, culminating in a long and well-balanced finish that lingers on the tongue.

This wine is a perfect accompaniment to a variety of dishes, such as ham, cured cheeses, red meats, and poultry, as well as game stews like partridge, rabbit, venison, wild boar, or roe deer, even seasoned with spicy sauces.

Critic Ratings

Wine Spectator Review - Issue Apr 30, 2021 - Rated 93:
This red is reserved, but has depth and harmony. Black cherry, leafy, loamy earth and mineral notes mingle over well-integrated tannins and firm acidity. It's balanced, fresh and long. Drink now through 2030. 6,000 cases made, 500 cases imported. — TM

James Suckling Review - Published January 16, 2022 - Rated 94:
Black-tea, dried-earth, black-cherry and blackberry aromas. It’s full-bodied with layered fruit and round yet polished tannins and a flavorful finish. Very fine wine. Drinkable now, but better in 2022.
