Characteristics of Barón de Ley 3 Viñas Blanco Reserva

Barón de Ley Tres Viñas is a white wine from the D.O.C Rioja produced by the Barón de Ley winery (situated in Mendavia, Navarra). The winery was founded back in the 1980’s with the aim of producing classic style wines.

The winery is currently home to 400 hectares of vineyards situated across different zones of the D.O.C Rioja, with the different grape varieties adapting to the different microclimates of the DO, from the Alavesa to the Rioja Baja.

Barón de Ley Tres Viñas is a blend of three different grape varieties: Viura (70%), Garnacha (15%) and Malvasia (15%), taken from 3 different vineyards situated in the Najerilla valley, on the borders of the river Ebro in Navarra. The vineyards are home to a Mediterranean climate and the harvest is carried out manually.

The winemaking process begins with destemming and a light pressing of the grapes. The different varieties undergo the various processes of the winemaking process seperately. After being blended the wine is aged for 12 months in American oak barrels.

Barón de Ley Tres Viñas is a well bodied white wine that offers complex aromas due to its 1 year of ageing in the barrels.

Tasting notes Barón de Ley 3 Viñas Blanco Reserva

This vintage, rated as "Very Good", was characterized by the hard frost that occurred when the vegetative cycle was beginning in mid-April, and by the subsequent drought. Except for these two weather events, the year passed normally, with the vintage displaying a perfect health status in the last phase of the cycle. The wines of this vintage are characterized by having a somewhat higher average graduation than 2016, with a very good aging capacity and a high percentage of fine and very identifiable wines.
High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
2010 was considered the perfect vintage after some very good years. An optimal growth cycle, without incidents regarding the health of the vineyards. The harvest took place during a magnificent state of the vines and with a moderate production, with good fruit setting and slow ripening. A great year with excellent ageing potential, which resulted in spicy and fruity wines, with a very good structure and acidity.

    Imágenes y situación D.O.Ca. Rioja

    Barón de Ley is one of those Rioja wineries whose first wines were born with a true vocation for the future. There has probably never been a winery in the area of ​​La Rioja of the Navarre area that has been as controversial as Barón de Ley, where the modern character of its wines encountered the first renewed tastes. And Barón de Ley, after a few years producing test wines for another winery, was very clear as to what they wanted to be and what they wanted to do: a winery with a châteaux philosophy, with its own vineyards and a limited production, based on the concept of making single-vineyard wines, modern, in the Bordeaux style but with Rioja class.
