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. For now, rather similar to the 2005 when it was first released, the 2010 Gran Reserva is rich, impressively structured, and spicy, with concentrated dark fruit and cassis aromas that lead to a chewy palate of sweet dark fruits, baking spices and minerality. More Garnacha finds its way into this wine than the Reserva. This vintage was aged for 27 months in primarily French oak followed by a long ageing in bottle. It is tasty though in a rich, bold, youthful way, and will undoubtedly improve for many years to come. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)
