Characteristics of Luis Alegre Reserva

Luis Alegre Reserva is a red wine from the D.O La Rioja produced by Bodegas Luis Alegre. This is a blend of mostly Tempranillo (90%), Graciano, Mazuelo y Garnacha (10% the rest).

The grapes for Luis Alegre Reserva grow on vines owned by the winery with an average age of 40.

All the processes, from start to finish use traditional methods of production.

At the winery, Luis Alegre Reserva is fermented and macerated with its husks in 12,000kg stainless steel tanks.
After these processes, Luis Alegre Reserva is transferred to Quercus oak barrels from different European forests (France, Hungary and Croatia).

Luis Alegre Reserva remains in the barrels for 17 months before being aged for another 18 months in the bottle.

Bodegas Luis Alegre is a family winery located in Laguardia, in La Rioja Alvesa. There are 50 hectares of vineyards owned by the winery reaching nearly 100 years of age.

Tasting notes Luis Alegre Reserva

Luis Alegre Reserva 2014 is a mature, fleshy and elegant red wine. This vintage shows a good balance between the varietal aromas, with ripe red fruit and the notes of aging, light toast, tobacco and spices. On the palate it is direct, refined and quite lingering.
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 and clean russet red. Very bright. Nose Intense notes of ripened fruit. Undertones of vanilla, cinnamon and tobacco due to the ageing process in the barrel. Taste Balanced and persistent. Clean and embracing on the palate. Floral and spicy notes.
Sight The tasting repport of this wine is being translated. Meanwhile, you can check the Spanish version.
Sight Intense ruby red colour. Clean and bright. Nose Intense and clean notes of ripe fruit. Spices, vanilla, cinnamon and tobacco notes from its ageing in wood complement the fruity concentration, resulting in a very aromatic nose. Taste Fleshy and very balanced on the palate. Spices and mature fruit linger in the mouth. Good acidity and ripe tannins. Long and persistent. Smoky and toasted sensations at retro-olfaction. A great Rioja red wine.

Imágenes y situación D.O.Ca. Rioja

The winery is located in a singular 4-floor circular building (two of the floors are underground) in the heart of the region of Rioja Alavesa. This winery has innovative and forward-looking facilities with the best technologies, which complements the work conducted in the vineyards. Their great wines are elaborated on the base of the two following statements: a strict grape-selection process (with selection tables straight in the vineyards) and a pioneer form of addressing wood. Their wines are produced under the D.O.C. Rioja, most of them out of the variety Tempranillo, although the varieties Viura, Malvasía, Grenache and Mazuelo are also grown.
