Characteristics of Marqués de Cáceres M.C

Marqués de Cáceres M. C. 2012 is a red wine from the IO La Rioja produced by the Marqués de Cáceres winery. This is a varietal wine, which is only made using Tempranillo.

The grapes come from an area of 11.2 hectares divided into five small pieces of land in Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa. These are staggered at five different heights, ranging from 400 to 550 metres in the Rioja Alta and 380 to 500 metres in the Rioja Alavesa. The vines are between 65 and 90 years old and mostly grown in clay-calcareous soils.

The method of grape growing is traditional, influenced by the Atlantic climate, and harvesting is carried out manually, plot by plot, in boxes of 15 kilos. They are then maintained at a temperature of between 5 and 6 degrees for a period of two days and finally undergo a double selection and vibration.

The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeast, to a maximum temperature of 28º. The maceration, which takes place after this first process lasts up to 30 days. Micro-oxygenation ocurs until light begins malolactic fermentation in new French medium toasted oak barrels. After this process, which lasts three for months, the wine is aged in barrels for 12 months. The wine spends at least six months in bottle.

The Marqués de Cáceres Winery is located in the town of Cenicero distant about 20 km from Logroño, in the Rioja Alta. Founded by Enrique Forner in 1970, the winery has already become a classic and acclaimed winery in DO La Rioja.

Tasting notes Marqués de Cáceres M.C

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.
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.
Sight

Intense colour, almost black cherry.

Nose The scent recalls black forest fruit, spices and vanilla with a toasted background. Taste

It is dense and intense, a loose aftertaste.

Sight Intense picota cherry colour with violet reflections. High robe, bright, with abundant tears staining the glass. Nose This red wine is intensely aromatic. Aromas of ripe black fruit, cherry, plum, blackberry and nuances of sweet spices, vanilla and balsamic. A lightly roasted background of coffee, complimenting an attractive set. Taste This wine is structured and tasty. A good amount of fruit, with roasted and earthy notes. Good acidity and very intense, sweet tannins. Long and persistent finish.

Imágenes y situación D.O.Ca. Rioja

Marqués de Cáceres, and especially its founder, Enrique Forner, revolutionized the concept of Rioja wine in the 70s with a business model focused exclusively on quality. An obsession that, even today, remains one of the pillars on which the fifth generation of this illustrious wine family is established. A spirit based on continuous evolution, with a remarkable policy of investment in innovation and technology, but also far from the more or less passing trends. Currently, the wines from Marques de Cáceres are present in more than 120 countries. But, above all, they are the reality that interprets the personal challenge of its founder. His innate sensitivity and his unique vision of the future have made his wines take part in that secret complicity between science, nature, and pleasure, harvest after harvest.
