2014 Remelluri Reserva Rioja

SKU #1568956 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of dried flowers, ripe berries and tobacco continue to the palate that is medium-to full-bodied with firm, silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Classic style. Better with a little more bottle age, but already very pretty. Inner quote mark (9/2020)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The estate red 2014 Reserva was produced with the grapes from a challenging year with abundant rain and high temperatures in September. They started picking the 11th of October and had to rush and do a severe selection of grapes. It fermented in small vats and oak casks and matured in barriques for 20 to 21 months. They consider 2014 the breakthrough vintage for Remelluri since Telmo Rodriguez came back in 2010, as it takes time until things are sorted. 2014 was a challenging vintage, but when they compare it with 2013, they still favor 2014.

K&L Notes

94 points Tim Atkin MW: "A step up from the 2013 release, partly because of the better vintage but also because of a growing impression that Remelluri is getting back to its impressive best. Based on Tempranillo, with 20% Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano, aged in 20% new wood and larger foudres, this is a fresh, nuanced, Atlantic-style red with tobacco pouch, sweet spice and red berry fruit and a backbone of acidity."

Deep and mysterious, yet at the same time bright and spicy, the nose is so captivating. It somehow evokes both a warm, classic Christmas vibe and a chilling, thriller set in a dark, rainy mountainside. Regardless of the vibes, it is flat-out delicious. That dark red Tempranillo fruit that comes from Alavesa, dusted with fine, spicy oak, frames the fruit and leads it across polished tannins toward a clean, earthy finish. Long, intriguing and complex, this is a wine for large and small gatherings; a wine to sit with and contemplate— as well as to drink too fast, and with gusto!
