Characteristics of Marqués de Riscal Limousin

Marqués de Riscal Limousin is a white wine from Rueda produced by Marqués de Riscal, an extension of his project 'Bodegas Marques de Riscal' in Rioja. In 1970 he decided to produce white wines and chose the DO Rueda for it.

The climate in this area is Mediterranean but with some continental influences. There is a great difference between the day and night temperatures. Winters are cold and very long, there are short springs with late frosts and hot, dry summers, with some occasional storms. This wine is a varietal Verdejo from 205 hectares of old vines pruned in glass trellises and located on the upper terraces of the Douro River. As for the design, harvest is done manually in boxes of 15 Kg. The whole grape is pressed, without destemming it, thus limiting the maximum oxidation of must and retaining all the aromas, colour and freshness of the variety. Once the must is obtained, it passes through a slight clarification. Fermentation takes place in French Allier oak barrels of 600 litres, subsequently aging on lees for 6-7 months.

Tasting notes Marqués de Riscal Limousin

The 2017 vintage has been rated excellent by the regulatory council. A year marked by drought and high temperatures that brought the harvest date forward. Autumn began with temperatures somewhat higher than normal but with a normal rainfall. It was not until late November when temperatures dropped. The beginning of the year arrived with low temperatures and scarce rainfall. Suddenly, temperatures began to rise and accelerated the growth and phenolic development of the vines. At the end of April, there was an intense frost, a severe climatic accident that reduced the harvest by 20%. Once again, May registered very high temperatures that sped up the flowering and consequently brought the harvest date forward, becoming the earliest to date. A vintage where all the aromatic components of the grape have been extracted and the acidity has been preserved, essential to give freshness to the wine.
The 2016 vintage, rated as very good, began with an autumn and winter with high temperatures for these seasons that predicted an acceleration of the vines’ growth cycle. At the beginning of the spring, temperatures fell and rainfall returned to normal figures. This fact was translated in an adjustment as far as budding and flowering dates. At the beginning of June, the heat arrived and stayed all summer until the beginning of the harvest. In general terms, it was a rainy and somewhat warm year. The wines of this vintage are characterised for being aromatic and with a good acidity. Where wines in their youth will preserve their aromatic and fresh features.
The 2015 vintage was rated as very good in a year where no climatic accident occurred. Autumn and winter were somewhat warmer than normal but with normal rainfall. In spring, the growth cycle started a few days in advance, but temperatures and rains continued normally until the beginning of summer. Days before the harvest, temperatures became milder and the end of ripening was very good. The wines of this vintage are characterised by a good balance between maturity and acidity. A good aromatic profile that will age correctly.

The fresh notes of fruit appear along with hints of nuts and notes provided during the ageing and by the fine lees. Excellent acidity. It is a perfectly balanced and harmonious wine with a long and persistant finish that leaves spicy sensations.

    Designation of Origin D.O. Rueda

    Winery Marqués de Riscal

    When we talking about the Rueda wines, we are often referring to their white wines. The white wines produced in this region are often made with the Verdejo variety, the main variety of Rueda, planted along the Douro River and its tributaries. Rueda white wines often offer lots of floral notes, scrubland low, delicate aromas and a great acidity given by strong temperature differences between day and night. Apart from white wine, Rueda also produces red wine, often made with the Tempranillo variety.

    Talking about Marqués de Riscal means talking about prestige, innovation, non-conformism and quality, values that have been shown since 1858, when this winery was founded.
    We are in front of the oldest wineries within the D.O. Rioja, essential in the birth of the D.O. Rueda and with no doubt, one of the most daring and pioneering wineries due to its way of understanding the wine industry.
