Characteristics of Martínez Lacuesta Gran Reserva
Martínez Lacuesta Gran Reserva is a red wine produced by Bodegas Martínez Lacuesta in Haro, D.O.Ca. Rioja.
Bodegas Martínez Lacuesta was founded in 1895 in Haro by Félix Martínez Lacuesta. A winemaker, lawyer, politician and publicist, he was the first president of the National Association of Winegrowers and Wine Industries, as well as of the Rioja Wine Union. He was also one of the creators of the Regulating Board of D.O. Rioja, where he represented his fellow winemakers.
The philosophy of this century-old winery is to produce the best wines from the best grapes. To do so, they have plots distributed throughout Rioja Alta, searching for the best vineyards and buying, up until this day, new plots to plant new vines.
Martínez Lacuesta Gran Reserva is a wine made from Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuelo, from vineyards located at 450-600 metres of altitude. Their vines, of an average of 25 years old, are planted on clayey-calcareous soils.
Once the harvest is carried out manually, it goes through a traditional winemaking process. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel deposits and aged in new and semi-new American oak barrels for 36 months. Before the wine is bottled, it is left to stand in the bottle for a minimum of 48 months.
Martinez Lacuesta Gran Reserva is a silky, lingering and balanced wine. In this wine, the aromas of the ageing process stand out with elegance. The leather, tobacco and liquorice notes are the main features on a background of ripe red fruit.
