Segura Viudas Reserva Heredad NV

Segura Viudas Reserva HeredadThis must be one of the most recognisable bottles of wine around, the solid metal base and metal coat of arms as the label are quite striking.  Perfect for any medieval occasion you may be planning, also very handy in a bar fight. 

So what is the wine like?  Well, its very similar to the Vintage Brut, but more refined.  In fact it may be the same wine blended from multiple vintages .

Just the right amount of fizz.  The nose has a big wack of green apple with a light influence of bread and nuts.  Very good balance, every thing is in its place.  Very refreshing and enjoyable.   While not as complex as many champagnes, there is a good deal of complexity to go with the green apple and lemon:  almonds, walnuts and minerals.  Long smooth finish that keeps you coming back for more.  A very good wine with some outrageous packaging.  88 Pts.

  1. I’ve got to say that the kitsch factor has put me off buying this. What’s wrong with simply wrapping a bottle in gold wire?

  2. Uhh, the pewter base keeps the wine chilled. And I think the crest looks damn nice.

    Good luck on that gold wire idea.

  3. Straight up I don’t know anything about wine.

    I was given a bottle of this wine some years ago and it still sits on the mantle (because it just looks to damn good to drink) and recently I’ve been thinking of taking a crack at it.

    What can I expect?

    Thanks

  4. To be honest, I’ve never had an old one, I don’t really think of it as a cellaring wine. However, that isn’t going be a nice drink once you pop the cork. If its 1-2 years old, i would it expect it to be just like the one above, after you never know how long things like this sit on the shelves…

  5. Just purchased this wine because of the bottle and was pleasantly surprised at how refreshing and drinkable it was on a very warm day. Won’t be my last bottle.

  6. Wow, Have just been given a bottle of this as a gift (suspect because the bottle was so impressive) so I’m glad to hear that it’s actually a drinkable drop.
    Now waiting for a warm day to crack it open! Will report back when empty.

  7. Well its perfectly fine and easy to pop open because the price is good. The fact that the bottle is very nice (and yes, some have thought of using it as a weapon, in case) Of course, I’ve never tried too many great sparklers outside of Champagne, because sparklers arn’t well represented in Hong Kong. But this one, bit more than 20 usd, pleasant taste, better than all the main champagne NV’s that’s for sure… Worth opening more and more with some friends on an afternoon, would recommend… after all, I’d need to pay several times more to find a champagne with the same relative quality… notcies one thing, drink this is a relatively fat, (diameter wise)not thin, champagne flute.

  8. I like this wine better than the brut reserva I wish I could find it in town more often all the fine metal is very impressive too I understand from a friend that Spain in general is a very nice place for wine ans especially the drinking of it. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year we have a bottle of each was two but I had to do a taste test to see which was better these things must be done
