2012 Granja Remelluri Gran Reserva Rioja

SKU #1444069 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The DNA of Remelluri is here. Wild mountain herb character, structured and firm, these tannins are succulent and deeply expressive. Powerful and assertive red plums, wild cherries and roasting herbs with the oak sitting well. Power and balance. Try from 2021. Inner quote mark (8/2018)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano, the 2012 Granja Remelluri Gran Reserva represents what they are aiming for with this wine, a classical expression of the place, the quintessence of the vineyards. The select their oldest vineyards and age the wine for a long time, coming back to those early years of a modern Rioja that has now turned into a classic. It has some dusty tannins, with good grip and length. It was bottled in 24,238 bottles after an élevage of 26 months. It has been in bottle since May 2015. (LG) 94+ Inner quote mark (6/2019)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Deep ruby. Ripe red berries, dried flowers, illicit herb and smoky minerals on the exotically perfumed nose. The palate offers spicy, penetrating, concentrated flavors of black raspberry, cherry compote and floral pastilles, with a zesty mineral quality building in the glass. Shows excellent clarity and intensity on the very long, floral, gently tannic finish. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2015)

K&L Notes

Located in the town of Labastida, in some of the highest elevation vineyard sites in all Rioja, Remelluri organically farms their vines, incorporating some biodynamic principles and treatments, and is amongst the finest estates in Rioja. They are one of the few Rioja bodegas to boast ageing pedigree (these wines age beautifully for many years, both reserva and gran reserva bottlings), as well as a clear intent to painstakingly, organically farm their prized vineyard holdings. Furthermore, owner Telmo Rodriguez has a creative spirit in the cellar, where there are always experimentations with different size barrels and foudres as applied to particular parcels and grape varieties. . *organic*
