Tasting Notes

"Fresh blueberries and brambleberries take center stage, which is striking for a wine of this age. There are also lots of roasted herbs, such as sage, not to mention floral elements, including lavender and dried violets. Then come cedar, sandalwood and tar. The tannins are incredibly round and soft, without the slightest hint of anything dry. This is among the most elegant of Riojas, where the acidity is wonderfully pronounced and cuts right through any touch of dried fruit. Long and powerful, yet subtle on the finish. Drink now, or hold for a very long time."

"It seems like yesterday when the superb 2001 was released, and now I already have the 2010 Gran Reserva 904 in my glass. It has to be among the greatest modern time vintages of this mythical bottling, where they aim for a wine that has a long aging potential. This is mostly Tempranillo with 10% Graciano and 13.5% alcohol, and it matured in fourth-used American oak barrels for four years, during which time the wine was racked every six months. It has the combination of elegance and power only the best vintages are capable of, with the classical aromas, great detail and nuance, very good balance and persistence. They consider 2010 among the best years of this century, and maybe future generations will talk about 2010 like we talk about the great classical vintages of yesterday today. The palate is polished but shows plenty of energy and tension, the tannins are very fine and elegant, and the flavors are focused and clean. This has to be one of the greatest wines from the vintage. A legend in the making."

The Producer

La Rioja Alta

La Rioja Alta is one of the most legendary and revered wineries in all of Spain. Since 1890, they have produced wines that are the epitome of traditional Rioja, and have stood the test of time. Across the board, in almost any vintage, they produce extraordinary wines of exceptional purity and complexity.

La Rioja Alta was established exactly 131 years ago. This historic winery, located in the Barrio de la Estación area in Haro was founded by five Basque and Riojan vine growers and holds the honour of having converted the name of the Rioja subzone into their brand. Few wineries anywhere in the world continue the kinds of classic practices that are still the norm here: La Rioja Alta is the embodiment of dedication and heritage.
