2015 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Crianza Rioja Top Pick!
2015 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Crianza Rioja

As is the case with so many other great spots in Spain, Bodega Casa Juan is located opposite the village church, in the beautiful walled pueblo of Laguardia. The winery is a converted flour mill, featuring concrete tanks for fermenting and blending the wine; and for aging, barrels that are used for up to seven years. These are traditional Riojas in elaboration and spirit, though the site specificity of their Laguardia and Villabuena vineyards confers a fruit character all its own to these wines. And what fruit! This crianza is a potpouri of mixed berries ...Read More »

2012 Bodegas Altanza Lealtanza Reserva Rioja

97 points Decanter: "Platinum medal in the Decanter Asia Wine Awards. Rounded and layered aromas of dried fruits, red cherry, smoke and coconut. Well polished and presented with red fruit and plum flavours sluicing through the palate. It is, simply, a beautiful wine with the X-factor." (09/2018) Jancis Robinson: "18 months in French oak. More meaty on the nose – makes me think of roast duck and cranberry sauce. Vibrant red-fruited tang at the heart, radiating out on broad-shouldered but attractively sculptured tannins.

2010 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Reserva Rioja Top Pick!
2010 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Reserva Rioja

Composed of the same grapes in the same percentages as the Crianza, the Reserva is a barrel selection of wines that Angel feels can undergo longer aging in barrel and then in bottle. Aged a total of 27 months in barrels, then into concrete for more than a year, the Reserva also sees bottle aging until Angel deems it ready for release. This wine ramps up the intensity of the Crianza, with more pungent fruit as well as a real spicy and wild quality. As with many of the best Riojas, this wine is quite delicious right now if you want to drink some bottles wh ...Read More »

Full-bodied, reserved and so held back and muscular, but you don’t feel the tannins and the strength. A great wine. Give it two or three years. Try in 2020."

Long, confident, finely integrated oak, full-flavoured finish.

2006 Lopez de Heredia "Viña Tondonia" Reserva Rioja

It always matures in used American oak barriques for some six years. The oldest of all the reds I tasted, it was also the one with more freshness, which speaks to the quality of the vineyard.

Having begun his humble "retirement project" in the early 1990s by restoring an older bodega just down the hill from the historic town of Briones, Miguel either owns or rents to own a total of around 8 hectares of vines, all of which are located in Briones; not only is this village specific Rioja, but it happens to come from one of the most sought after villages in all of Rioja Alta, where many top bodegas have some of their most prized, older vineyard ...Read More »

The fermentation usually lasts eight days with pigéage and remontage, pressed and put to age in 225-liter American oak barrels for 19 months.

2014 Bodegas LAN Crianza Rioja

Based in the village of Fuenmayor, LAN produces one of the tastiest, most consistent, inexpensive and readily available Riojas on the market. 2014 was a return to usual for the region, with warmer and drier weather than in 2013, which translates into a bit more fruitiness and heft on the palate, perfect for this venerable value bottling to best show off its juicy cherry flavors and hints of spice. This is always among our most popular Riojas for everyday enjoyment.

2017 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos "Cuarteto" Rioja

There is a wonderful element of whimsy and joy at this tiny, family bodega located in Laguardia.

A blend of Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa, containing 80% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano, 5% Mazuelo and 5% Grenache. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks then aged in casks (100% American) for 12 months and in the bottle for another several years; this wine can in fact be labeled Gran Reserva, and qualitatively is much better than many of them! Terrific wine from one of the most underrated producers in the region, and from a fantastic 2010 vintage to boot.

2011 Viña Real Reserva Rioja

Produced from more Rioja Alavesa fruit, and always bottled in the Burgundy shaped bottle, Viña Real is a Rioja that is perhaps more fruit forward, with a more lively and playful sense of structure than its sister Cune brand. That said, the wine has in the past proven to be a long-term cellar candidate; the 1987 Viña Real Reserva for example is one of the more memorable and enjoyable Riojas I have ever had the pleasure to drink! (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish Wine Buyer)

2015 Palacio del Burgo Tinto Rioja (Elsewhere $15)

90 points Vinous: "Bright violet. Vibrant red and dark berry scents are complemented by hints of cola and candied flowers. Fresh and energetic on the palate, offering juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that deepen and become sweeter on the back half. Gentle tannins build slowly on the clinging finish but are no match for the plush, primary fruit. This delicious Rioja drinks surprisingly well already. (JR)" (05/2017) K&L Notes: Palacio del Burgo is produced by Burgo Viejo, one of the more serious producers of value oriented Rioja in the entire re ...Read More »

2013 Señorío de P. Peciña Crianza Rioja

92 points John Gilman: "The 2013 Rioja Crianza from Bodegas Peciña is a beautiful wine that has blossomed marvelously at age five and is now drinking with style and grace. The pure and classic bouquet jumps from the glass in a mix of cherries, toasted coconut, a bit of cigar smoke, lovely spice tones and a fine base of salty soil elements. On the palate the wine is pure, medium-full, complex and beautifully balanced, with a lovely core of red fruit, excellent soil signature, fine-grained, very modest tannins and a long, velvety and vibrant finish. Beauti ...Read More »

2009 Remirez de Ganuza Reserva Rioja

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The eponymous 2009 Reserva is a cuvée of Tempranillo and 10% Graciano, with some 5% of the volume extracted from the skin of the white Viura and Malvasia grapes that are used to ferment together, after the vinification of the white is done. As is usually the case here, it fermented in oak vats and went through malolactic in new barrels (mostly French) where it aged for two years. The difference between this wine and the Fincas from the same year is basically the vineyards used, which is a personal taste criteria ...Read More »

2011 Contino Gran Reserva Rioja

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Gran Reserva is bottled in magnum, blended from 70% Tempranillo, 15% Graciano, 12% Garnacha and 3% Viura. The élevage was extended to three years in used oak barrels followed by a further three years in bottle. It feels quite ripe and a little heady, generously oaked. It's a very dry year, and the wine doesn't have the freshness of the 2010. It seems like the nature of the vintage and the warmish location have resulted in a very ripe year. There is more freshness on the palate, where there are tannins th ...Read More »

1964 Bodegas Bilbainas Vendimia Especial Rioja (top shoulder fills) (Previously $150)

Founded in the 1859 by a group of Bordelais to export to the wine-starved French market after phylloxera had ravaged its vineyards, the bodega's original name was Savignon Frères & Cie, but was changed to Bilbaínas after being purchased by a group of Bilbao businessmen. The Spanish royal family, Winston Churchill, and Salvador Dalí were among the wine's ardent admirers. The wines represent classic Rioja in both history and character. They are based in Haro, as are other iconic bodegas such as Muga, La Rioja Alta, CVNE, Lopez de Herédia.

2005 Lopez de Heredia "Viña Tondonia" Reserva Rioja (1.5L)

96 points Decanter: "Traditional Rioja at its ageworthy best, the Tondonia red is a cuvée of Tempranillo with 20% Garnacha and 5% each of Graciano and Mazuelo. Leafy, gamey and sweet, with tangy acidity and a volatile lift. (TA)" (10/2017) 94 points James Suckling: "Lovely depth of fruit to this mature red with chocolate, dark tea and bark. Purple flowers and violets. Full and very silky and refined. A beautiful traditional wine to get to know. Drink now."
