Baron de Ley Rioja Reserva 2010

Rioja, SpainThis is a mostly tempranillo blend that is aged 20 months new American oak casks and then two years in bottle. Tasted twice this month this is classic Rioja, plus mercifully clean. In a vintage like 2010, when the fruit was so perfect, you don’t feel the oak. Instead you are drawn into this red by its amazing silky texture and impressive mix of red and black fruits that project a pure flavour flecked with dried, scrubby, wild herbs. Perfect balance which means there will be effortless ageing to come. Restaurants rejoice, collectors stock up.Tasted: 10 April 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 31.95 private wine shops AB 27.00 private wine shops NS 33.00 NLC Producer: Baron de LeyDistributors: Cru & Terroir
