TASTING NOTES

"Complex aromas of hazelnuts, dried flowers, dark fruits and stones. Subtle. Full-bodied, chewy and structured. Fills your mouth. An age-worthy wine that harkens back to the great Rioja of the 1940s and 1950s. Available in 2016." JamesSuckling.com

"I was really blown away by the 2010 Granja Remelluri Gran Reserva, their take on more classical Rioja; IT is aged in oak for a longer time, but not without having selected grapes from their very best plots that would benefit from the extended élevage. The varietal composition is approximately 75% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha and 5% Graciano. Like all of the wines here, it fermented in small stainless steel and oak vats with indigenous yeasts, and then matured in oak barrels for some 26 months. The nose is full of flowers, blood orange, sweet spices, violet pastille and curry. It's very aromatic and perfumed, with the herbs that you find in the Remelluri mountains, rosemary especially. It is extremely attractive, with a nose that makes you go back to it over and over again. This is still very young, but terribly balanced. The tannins are refined and there is a fine thread of acidity going through its core and lifting it up. This could very well be the best vintage of Granja so far. And having seen the improvements in the vineyards, my feeling is that the best is yet to come. Around 20,000 bottles produced." Luis Gutiérrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #226

"Deep crimson still. Wild, dark red and fragrant - more fruit and terroir than oak. Bone-dry and very firmly textured. Long, dry and already elegant and refined but nowhere near ready." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
