Remelluri Gran Reserva 2009
Spice box of aromas reminiscent of tobacco, sandalwood and pencil lead. The palate is grand and gains presence with aeration. Good length and great finesse.
|Varietal(s)||Tempranillo Garnacha Graciano|
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – This is a category they had not produced since 2005 and only bottled in exceptional vintages (1989, 1990, 1994, 1996, 1999, 2005). In their mountain vineyards (500 to 800 meters altitude), the 2009 season saw a cold and long winter with enough snow that provided enough water for a warm summer. It's a blend of the traditional Rioja grapes, Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano and the whites Viura and Malvasía. As in the past, all red wines contained a more or less small amount of white grapes and despite being considered modern when their first released their wines, today they are as classical as it gets.
