From the ‘Cathedral of Rioja’ comes a blend that has managed to stay youthful even after all these years. Perhaps it was the 2 years in new oak, or simply the expert blending of 80% Tempranillo, 15% Mazuelo and 5% Garnacha, but this seductive and wonderfully approachable wine is certainly a memorable one!
This gran reserva is a blend of 80% Tempranillo, 15% Mazuelo and 5% Garnacha, aged for two years in new oak. Sarah Jane Evans MW: A youthful blend, still showing energy after all these years: refreshing and well balanced, with a fine rasp of tannin. Simon Field MW: Seductive and wonderfully approachable for a beast that has been cloaked in wood for so long; very long and memorable. Pierre Mansour: Youthful, vibrant and gorgeously rich, yet with such well-judged tannins.
