When it first hits your palate there is an unexpected fragrance. You could call it rose water but someone less charitable might say bubble gum. That soon wears off and the drinking experience improves. It is not unpleasant, just not what you are expecting.
Smooth, tasty and good value
One of my favourites. Very good value when on offer.
My favourite wine
I have been buying this wine for the past 5 or 6 years and it has become my favourite. I love the smoothness of it and the lovely velvety warmth and fruity flavour. I look forward to it being on special offer when I can indulge myself even more.
Not the best Campo Viejo
Although it is acceptable and drinks well even on the second day after opening, this is far from the best vintage - oh for the 2008 and 2010 bottles!!
Best available cannot wait for offer to return .Should have bought twice as much.
Campo Viejo Rioja
Lovely wine one of my favourites. This wine is very nice and I am quite happy to drink it with any food.
Ever reliable Rioja
Always have a few bottles around in case a Rioja lover comes to visit.
Quality and Reliability
Campo Viejo Gran Reserva is a good value Rioja: smooth, rich, a good balance of fruit and cask maturity, and a regular accopmaniment to a variety of meat dishes from tapas and roasts to stews and tagines. It's good and it's reliable.
Its hard to say I have opened a bottle of this wine and not liked it, for the money its a great buy when its on offer I always stock up.
A good easy drinking lighter wine. Goes well with most foods or on its own.
