Tasting notes Lealtanza Reserva

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.
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.
Sight Ruby red colour with light maroon edge. Clean and bright. Nose Clean, fine and elegant medium-intensity nose. Wide range of aromas which go from the balsamic to the toasted hints, well combined with very ripe red and black fruit. Impressive spiced notes in the background.

Sight Intense red cherry colour, with scarlet and tile red reflections. Clean and bright wine with thin tears. Nose Smart, seductive and balanced aromas with a certain complexity that makes it very pleasant. Initially, many notes of black fruits (blackberries) are released along with intense balsamic nuances, which give way to an explosion of spices, coffee, tobacco and cocoa, with a very creamy texture on a good toasted background. Taste Wine with an intense attack and a long, meaty and velvety mid palate. Very balanced wine, with lots of black fruit (with some notes of red fruit) and sweet creamy spices. It shows a balanced acidity, integrated tannins and a long and lingering finish that leaves a spicy aftertaste.  A classic Rioja with an excellent value for money.
