« You could sense the higher ripeness of the vintage in the nose of the 2011 Reserva Selección de la Familia, a much darker red with marked aromas of black plums, dark chocolate, roasted coffee and nuts, quite oaky and a bit heady. Even if the label looks more traditional, the profile of the wine is more modern, oakier and more extracted. » (Wine Advocate 2016 - Robert Parker) A great wine from Spain !

Complex variety of aromas which combine to give us an intense, sophisticated wine. Initially we can find very ripe berry fruits, smoked victuals, raisins and liquor. After a certain amount of aeration, the cinnamon and jam notes surface and, with a little more time, the roasted and spiced aromas are noticed more clearly.

Full, with a good presence of the tannins, although these are offset by the glycerinelike character, resulting in a fleshy feel. Long lasting and lingering.

Wine rated (guide 2016) : 89/100 (Très bon vin)
Vineyard rated : Recommended (Winery recommended by the Wine Advocate - Robert Parker)

About this wine : Vous pouvez percevoir la grande maturité du millésime au nez de ce Reserve Selección de la Familia 2011, un rouge très foncé avec des arômes marqués de prunes noires, de chocolat noir, de café torréfié et de noix, assez boisé et un peu capiteux. Même si l'étiquette semble plus traditionnelle, le profil du vin est très moderne, plus boisé et plus extrait. La finale est sèche et les tanins semblent un peu durs. Il pourrait avoir besoin de plus de temps. 154 000 bouteilles.

Rioja, whose wines earned fame as early as the 19th century, is one of only two terroirs bestowed with Spain's superior appellation qualification of Denominación de Origen Calificada. Taking its name from the Oja River (Rio Oja in Spanish), the Rioja appellation does not correspond to administrative boundaries; instead, it straddles the autonomous communities of Navarre, Basque Country ...
