Characteristics of Coto Mayor Crianza

Coto Mayor Crianza is a red wine from the appellations of origin (D.O) Rioja produced by El Coto de la Rioja, a winery from Oyón (Álava), founded in 1970.

Coto Mayor Crianza is 100% produced from the varietal Tempranillo. The grape originates from the vineyards of Alvesa and Ausejo in Rioja.

For the means of production, Coto Mayor Crianza underwent a traditional winemaking process. The must is macerated and fermented in containers that are regulated to a strict regime of temperatures.

After the fermentation process, the wine is aged for 16 months (Crianza) in American (80%) and French (20%) oak barrels of 225 litres.

During the ageing stage of Coto Mayor Crianza, the winemakers tried to find the perfect balance between the freshness of the fruit and the sweetness of the barrels.

Tasting notes Coto Mayor Crianza

After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Qa 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.
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.
Sight Intense deep cherry red. Nose Strong aromatic intensity with heavy influence of ripened red fruit and toasted aromas. The aromas complement nicely the floral and vanilla notes. Taste Smooth and fruity on the palate. Acidity is well balanced. The wine is fleshy and tasty due to the mature tannins. Long finish.
Sight Bright and clean cherry colour with a maroon rim. Nose The freshness of the fruit is felt in the nose, along with vanilla and aromas of toasted oak. Taste Silky and persistent in the mouth with well-integrated spicy flavours.
