Characteristics of Barón de Ley Gran Reserva

Barón de Ley Gran Reserva is a red wine from the D.O La Rioja produced by the Barón de Ley. It is made using only Tempranillo grapes.

The grapes used to make this wine come from the municipality of Cenicero. The vineyards are poor in organic matter, which results in a high acidity and concentration in the fruit. The area is also home to an Atlantic climate, where it is not uncommon to see rainfall.

The winemaking process for Barón de Ley Gran Reserva is carried out using conventional methods, that have for years been applied by the winery who have vast experience in the industry.

As any Gran Reserva , Baron de Ley Gran Reserva undergoes a long ageing process. It spends 2 years in French and American oak barrels, followed by 3 more years of ageing in the bottle.

Located in the town of Mendavía, the Barón de Ley winery now one of the most renowned in the D.O La Rioja.  Founded in 1990,  it has managed to build up a stellar reputation specialising in developing reserves and gran reserves.

Tasting notes Barón de Ley Gran Reserva

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.
A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.
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.
