La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 890


Only made in exceptional years. Open, medium-intensity cherry-red with an orange rim. The nose is very intense with a classic Rioja bouquet — spicy, balsamic, cured leather, cocoa, tobacco and vanilla notes set against a background of candied fruit. Elegant in the mouth, with good structure and balance, silky, creamy tannins and a lively acidity on the finish. Big, complex aftertaste which will grow as the wine ages in the bottle .

This great classic Rioja is suitable with main courses without heavy sauces, meat stews and desserts with chocolate. It is also perfect as a closer for a good meal.

“Medium-depth cherry-red with a pale pink rim. Very intense, clean aromas, with dominating balsamic and spicy notes —vanilla, caramel, chocolate mint and spices against a fruity background of prunes and dried apricots. Well-balanced in the mouth, with an elegant acidity, good structure, round, polished tannins and an oily finish. The aftertaste is ample and very long, with notes of sweet fruit and marked licorice. A wine that represents the elegance and classicism of Rioja Gran Reservas.” Number 4, Wine Spectator’s Top 100 List 2018

Tasting Notes: The aromas to this are stunning with dried strawberry, stone and fresh mushroom. Full body and very tight with incredible depth and structure. It goes on for minutes. One of the greatest ever? The new 1964?" (2005 vintage) 98 points, James Suckling

Cedar and sandalwood aromas give way to flavors of tea, tobacco, dried cherry, forest floor and orange peel in this expressive red. Round on the palate, supported by muscular tannins and juicy acidity. Big but graceful, mature yet lively, in the traditional style. Drink now through 2030."
