The Martínez Bujanda Family wines’ recognition keeps improving. In fact, recently the prestigious www.elmundovino.com and the Guía del Vino Cotidiano, published by MiVino, have awarded them excellent scores.
Elmundovino.com’s wine tasting committee, which includes Juancho Asenjo, Víctor de la Serna and Ernestina Velasco, elaborates a ranking where Finca Valpiedra 2014 has been granted 17 points, the highest score amongst the 22 analysed. Viña Bujanda Gran Reserva 2011 has scored 16.50 points. Lastly, Cantos de Valpiedra 2016 has been awarded 15.50 points, which ranks it within the top 14 wines.
The wine tasters at elmundovino.com Asenjo, de la Serna and Velasco have evaluated the wines globally, according to their principal aspects: appearance, scents, flavour, ending and whole set harmony. These are assessed on a scale ranging from 0 to 20 points. Thus, the wines Finca Valpiedra 2014 and Viña Bujanda Gran Reserva 2011 have been listed as ‘very good wines’, and Cantos de Valpiedra 2016 as ‘good wine’.
On the other side, the Guía del Vino Cotidiano has recognised the distinction of the Martínez Bujanda Family wines by including wines from their four cellars in all of their categories. Their wine tasting committee, who studies the best Spanish wines, has been publishing this useful guide for 10 years, where the qualitative relation of each sample, and their market positioning are essential.
As such, with a score of 94, Finca Antigua Moscatel is the best valued sweet wine. This wine, produced from the muscatel morisco grape strain, is one of the flagships of the cellar at La Mancha because of its excellence and the fact that it offers a different and unique product. Its production is one of the best cared for masterpieces by its oenologist Lauren Rosillo. This is due to the double level of attention that these wines require, firstly, at the vineyard, watching for the correct maturity and ripening of the grapes, and subsequently, at the cellar, with the delicate labout being carried out.
Among other honourable mentions, all over 90 points, we can find Finca Antigua Viura 2018 (91) and Finca Montepedroso Verdejo 2018 (90). Their capacity to grow and develop is greatly highlighted in these two wines.
Finca Antigua is also recognised for the scores of three other references: Finca Antigua Petit Verdot Crianza 2016, Syrah Crianza 2016 and Crianza Único 2014. Cantos de Valpiedra 2015, from the Valpiedra Estate, and five references from the Bujanda Vineyard (Joven 2018, Crianza 2016, Reserva 2016, Rosado 2018 and Viura 2018) are also amongst the guide’s committee recommendations.
The Martinez Bujanda Family wines strengthen their good positioning after being chosen as recommendations by a series of experts, who value excellence in the care for the native land and in the elaboration of wines.
