La Rioja Alta S.A. Gran Reserva 904, 2015
“La Rioja Alta is one of the most respected Rioja producers and one of my favourites.” - Jancis Robinson
The legend began when five families joined together to share their passion for wine and set up the estate in 1890. Today, the winery is widely considered as one of the finest estates in the region, producing classic and traditional Riojas. These wines are marked by a long aging in used American oak barrels, following the most strict Riojan tradition and are released only when they are ready to drink.
Varietal: Tempranillo, Garnacha
98pt - James Suckling
“Very impressive complexity and width on the nose, showing lots of savoriness with mushrooms, sandalwood, cedar, sweet spices, dried oranges and tobacco. Really even and juicy on the palate with fine and very present tannins. Juicy, creamy finish lasting a minute. Really elegant and layered. It goes on and on. A real Rioja Gran Reserva and I recommend buying a case! The first vintage that La Rioja Alta labelled ‘Seleccion Especial.”
