Characteristics of Rioja Bordón Crianza

Rioja Bordón Crianza is a red wine from the DOCa. Rioja made with the Tempranillo and Grenache varieties by Bodegas Franco-Españolas.

Bodegas Franco-Españolas has over 125 years of history behind it. A result of the union between the two countries, when the phylloxera disease devastated the French vineyards, this winery marks the beginning of the production of quality wines in La Rioja. Bordón is a good example of this: a wine that acquires this curious name both in order to designate the pilgrims’ staff, and to remember its Bordeaux origin.

The grapes for Rioja Bordón Crianza comes from three sub-areas of La Rioja (Alta, Alavesa and Oriental): autonomous varieties of the territory that, depending on soil and climate, achieve the best typicity.

Once the harvest is complete, the berries are destemmed and gently ground. After the alcoholic fermentation, Rioja Bordón Crianza goes into a medium-toasted American white oak barrel for 14 months, with racking every 6 months to achieve natural clarification. It remains in the bottle for 6 months before going on the market.

For those who are looking for a traditional Rioja without surprises, Rioja Bordón Crianza is the wine for them. The winery’s long history endorses each of its creations. Fruit and wood in balance.

Tasting notes Rioja Bordón Crianza

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.
On the nose Rioja Bordón Crianza 2015 reveals ripe fruit and notes of vanilla; aspects that reappear on the palate with intensity.
