Tasting Notes

Made for Tesco exclusively by Baron de Ley, this is 100%
Tempranillo and aged in American oak barrels.

It is a great combination, producing a rich, powerful wine with raspberry and vanilla flavours, together with a touch of spice.

Lovely with lamb chops.

Storage Instructions

To enjoy this wine at its best, drink within 1 year of purchase.

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2008 vintage, Tim Atkin MW said: "One of the best reds in the finest* range, this is also a pure Tempranillo, but it's very differnet from the Marks & Spencer wine: sweeter, oakier and more traditional, with savoury notes, smooth fruit and tangy acidity."

Tim Atkin MW - Woman & Home 24/03/2014

Of the 2008 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: "This is an old-fashioned Rioja and normally I don't like this style, but I think the lovely, old oak nose and bright red cherry fruit are sensitively assembled here. Lovers of more traditional styles of red wine will find solace with this one."

Background

History

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
