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.
Rioja Alta 904 Gran Reserva 2007 is one of the great expressions of the Classic Rioja wines. It is only made in very good vintages, like this one of 2007, so that the fruit can stand the long ageing. As a result, we have a mature and delicate red wine, where the tertiary aromas of the ageing, like leather, perfectly combine with the black fruit. A delight to enjoy in a relaxed way.
Ruby red colour with brick red edges and a medium robe. A very bright wine with fine and elegant tears tears on the glass. Nose
High intensity nasal aromas. A fresh and crispy wine with refined notes of candied fruits and a touch of liquor which appear on a balsamic and spiced background with notes of leather, coffee and minty chocolate. Taste
This is a structured, round wine with sweet tannins, elegantly polished during its long ageing in barrels and in the bottle. Broad after-taste which provides a soft and persistent finish.
Nice brick red colour with iodized edges and a medium robe. Nose
High intensity aromas, in which the refined notes of ripe prunes, raisins and candied fruits stand out on a background of cinnamon, clove and mentholated chocolate. Taste
This red wine shows a good structure, a great balance and silky tannins, polished during its long ageing in barrels and in the bottle. Wide after-taste which provides a soft and persistent finish.
Deep and intense red colour, with brick-red edges. Clean and bright wine with a high layer and elegant tears. Nose
Intense, elegant and complex aromas. Its marked and expressive spicy notes are released along with a touch of vanilla and chocolate, serious toasted and smoked aromas and subtle hints of animal leather on a background of intense ripe black fruit, almost jam. Some elegant balsamic notes are also discreetly released. Taste
Excellent wine with a soft, intense and very nice attack. It has a well-bodied and bulky mid palate in which the wine coats the mouth with silkiness and the elegant notes felt on the nose are noticed again. Tasty and meaty wine with a very good acidity and well-integrated tannins. It is very well structured and balanced and has a very long and persistent finish.
Red wine with brick colour trims which are typical of great superior wines that have spent much time in wood. Clean and bright. Good tears. Nose
Its aromatic intensity and complexity define this wine in which the notes of balsamic and spicy appear with touches of noble leather and snuff on a background with a good burden of ripe red fruit and notes of good quality oak. Taste
A good, nice and meaty attack. Silky, velvety mid palate in which the fruit, balsamic and spicy notes we found in the nose appear again. Good acidity that gives lightness to the wine. Long and persistent finish. An elegant and round wine. A good classic.
