Tasting Notes

From the slightly cooler Rioja Alta region in Spain, this is a beautifully crafted mature wine made soley from the Tempranillo grape by Baron de Ley.

With sweet dark cherry fruit and a seductively soft oaky character, this is marvellously mellow.

Sip fireside, or enjoy with slow roasted red meats.

Storage Instructions

This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 3 years

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2004 vintage, Victoria Moore said: “All the molten strawberries and polished wood of the Gran Reserva style for an excellent price.”

Victoria Moore - The Daily Telegraph 08/12/2012

Of the 2004 vintage, Jancis Robinson said: “Charm incarnate in this unusually venerable example. (Only the Spaniards mature their wine this long.) Very dark crimson. Thick and sweet. Some really charming strawberry fruit and Rioja structure.”

Jancis Robinson - FT Magazine 08/12/2012

Aged for two years in oak barrels, this is an approachably mature, pure Tempranillo from the reliable Baron de Ley stable in Rioja Alta, displaying attractive, sweet cherry qualities on the nose with supple-textured tannins, a raspberryish, savoury fruit juiciness and a slightly rustic, dry aftertaste.
