\n“[Algueira’s] wines and spectacular vineyards have been praised by The New York Times and Le Figaro, so are better known internationally than in Spain itself. The wines of Algueira are considered by many the finest and most elegant in Ribeira Sacra.” The Finest Wines of Rioja and Northwest Spain, Jesús Barquín et al. “These [Ribera Sacra reds] are lively, graceful wines, with the same sort of aromatic loveliness and lissome body that draws people to Burgundy and Barolo.” Eric Asimov\n\nYou wonder, had Napoleon I and the Bonapartist Spain had their way in the Peninsular War, the ancient vineyards of Ribeira Sacra might have become a French AOC. Were it so, it’s easy to imagine these beautiful and elegant wines would be justifiably more vocally celebrated—not to mention pricier—than they are today.
