| 92 pts, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Belondrade y Lurton is Verdejo barrel-fermented with indigenous yeast, which aged for ten months in oak barrels, and is subtly smoky with aromas of toasted bread, sunflower seeds and almonds, with hints of complexity and good elegance. The palate reveals a medium-bodied wine with good structure, pungent flavors, very good acidity (especially for a dry, warm and late vintage as 2012), with the telltale bitter finish of the Verdejo. Very recognizable as Verdejo and Rueda, even if its barrel fermented. This is a subtle, elegant Rueda like few others. I’ve seen this wine age well in bottle (especially in large formats), and I have no doubt this should age gracefully. Perhaps it is not comparable because of climatic conditions, but 2007 is drinking beautifully now. Drink now-2019."
