Victoria Moore - Weekend, Daily Telegraph 04/06/2016
Of the 2011 vintage, Victoria Moore said: "......... this is a very classic rioja, made for Tesco by Baron de Ley, and it smells great. Think mellow and relaxed: old barns, countryside, straw bales, sun-warmed strawberries, a tiny bit of furniture polish and warm vanilla, with a spicy serration that comes from the oak. Gorgeous stuff."
Barón de Ley is a winery founded in 1985 by a small group of Rioja wine professionals and who conceive and start a project of innovative and unique characteristics in this prestigious DOCa. The original Baron de Ley project was based on the idea of developing a purely “vineyard driven” winery, oriented to the production of high quality wines from own vineyards. The other main guideline behind the project was to develop and implement a new style of “modern” Rioja wines
The winery is 320 ha located in Rioja Baja on Alluvial soils, rich in clays and limestone. Clear Mediterranean influence, which implies more insolation and less rains than in the western Rioja areas, which creates optimal conditions for the obtention of wines with more colour, concentration and poliphenolic maturation
