Recientemente se han publicado las puntuaciones del crítico norteamericano Stephen Tanzer, prescriptor de la publicación International Wine Cellar. Os contamos a continuación las descripciones y puntuaciones de los vinos de la Familia Peique:
Luis Peique 2009. 93 puntos.
Bright purple. Heady aromas of red berry preserves, incense and potpourri, with a bright mineral overtone and assertive spiciness. Stains the palate with sappy, sharply delineated raspberry and cherry-cola flavors. This rich yet lithe wine finishes on a sweet red fruit note, with outstanding persistence and smooth, slow-building tannins.
Peique Selección Familiar 2007. 92 puntos.
Opaque ruby. Ripe cherry and dark berries on the nose, with notes of licorice and dark chocolate adding complexity. Broad and chewy on the palate, offering intense cassis and bitter chocolate flavors that become sweeter with air. At once rich and lively, finishing with good punch and smooth, harmonious tannins.
Peique Viñedos Viejos 2008. 91 puntos.
Bright violet color. Smoky, spice-accented aromas of cassis, blueberry and dark chocolate. In a substantial style for the variety and region, offering weighty dark fruit flavors and a hint of candied licorice. A kick of tangy acidity comes up on the smoky, gently tannic, persistent finish, adding bite and welcome lift. I’d serve this hefty Bierzo with a piece of braised red meat.
Ramón Valle 2010. 91 puntos.
Bright ruby. Exotically perfumed scents of red fruit liqueur, Indian spices and fresh flowers. Sweet black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors are lifted by pepper and spice nuances. Sharply focused on the finish, leaving notes of dark berries and clove behind.
Peique tinto mencía 2012. 90 puntos.
Bright purple. High-pitched red fruit aromas are complicated by fresh flowers and Asian spices. On the palate, tangy redcurrant and raspberry flavors turn sweeter with air and pick up a subtle note of anise. Closes with very good energy and focus, leaving a smoky mineral note behind. This wine delivers outstanding value for the region.
Peique Godello 2012. 89 puntos.
Light yellow. Quince, citrus rind and dusty minerals on the nose. Dry and precise, with good clarity to its tangy, refreshingly bitter lemon and quince flavors. Shows a distinctly nervy quality on the lingering finish.
