Tasting Notes

Perfumed scents of tobacco, tea leaves, balsam and spice. Velvety smooth on the palate with excellent depth and complexity with more layered flavours of leather, spice and balsam with polished tannins and refreshing acidity. This is a beautifully crafted, extremely elegant wine with great depth, finesse, structure and longevity. It has been cared for and nurtured at the La Rioja Alta estate with a maturation process lasting over eleven years to ensure that it is only released when ready to drink; equally it can continue to be enjoyed or cellared over the next 25-30 years. The 2001 vintage easily stands alongside the famed 1964 and 1973 vintages, and this is perhaps the finest vintage of Gran Reserva 904 that has ever been produced.

Reviews & Scores

Dark ruby-colored with a garnet rim, it displays a lovely nose of Asian spices, incense, tobacco, balsamic, and blackberry. On the palate it has exceptional depth, layers of spicy black fruit, excellent ripeness, and an elegant personality. Upon release it should continue to evolve for another 5-6 years and drink well through 2040.

TASTING NOTES

This is a classic marriage (for 904) of Tempranillo and 11% Graciano that will appeal to the wine's many dedicated fans. Sweet balsamic and coconut aromas segue into a palate that's gentle, savoury and caressing with vital underlying acidity and structure.95 points and one of the ‘Wines of the Year’, Tim Atkin MW
