Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Telmo Rodriguez is the brilliant winemaker/architect behind this wine. The 1994 Rioja exhibits an opaque purple color, an exotic combination of smoky, black currant, Asian spices, roasted herbs, and tar scents vaguely reminiscent of an imaginary blend of La Mission-Haut-Brion and Mouton-Rothschild. The wine possesses a thick, unctuous texture, fabulous concentration and richness, and a long, lush, sweet, 40-second finish with amazing extract. Aged in 100% new oak and bottled unfiltered, this wine should be one of the great Spanish reds from the 1994 vintage. Be sure and keep an eye out for it ... I'm certainly buying it. (RP)
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.
