Characteristics of Rioja Bordón Reserva

Rioja Bordón Reserva from Bodegas Franco-Españolas is a red wine made with Tempranillo, Red Grenache and Mazuelo, three traditional varieties from DOCa. Rioja.

Bodegas Franco-Españolas was founded in 1890, when the phylloxera disease invaded France and its winemakers were forced to look for new vineyards in La Rioja. As a result of this union, "fine Rioja wines" began to be produced; productions to which the most modern winemaking techniques of the time were applied and which resulted in wines that were applauded all over the world. The legacy continues today.

Rioja Bordón Reserva is the result of three varieties from three Rioja territories (Alta, Alavesa and Oriental): three distinct sub-areas with a specific climate and soil that endow each of the varieties with specific qualities.

Once the harvest is complete, the bunches are destemmed and selected. After a gentle pressing, Rioja Bordón Reserva undergoes alcoholic fermentation and malolactic fermentation. The ageing takes place in barrels of medium-toasted American white oak and French oak for 18 months. To aid natural clarification, decanting is performed every 6 months.

Rioja Bordón Reserva is a red wine designed for enjoying the classic DOCa. Rioja Reservas.

Tasting notes Rioja Bordón Reserva

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.
Rioja Bordón Reserva 2013 has complex aromas of ripe fruit and the presence of roasted and spicy elements. On the palate it is broad and elegant, with a good structure.
