Description

Lovers of very fine Rioja, act NOW to make sure you are in line to secure this superb treasure from the great Jean-Marc Sauboua’s renowned Altos Estate. Dazzling with SEVEN Golds (including a Great Gold and Grand Gold) and many 90+ points, reserve this rare prestigious Altos 'R' Pigeage Graciano 2018 now and don’t miss it out!

This majestic, ultra-rare Rioja comes from Altos , a Trophy-winning estate founded by the renowned winemaker Jean-Marc Sauboua. ‘Pigeage’ (two reds and one white), are his flagship wines and in just ten vintages have won over 100 Golds. SEVEN of them are for this magnificent red, made with pure Graciano “far and away the most interesting vine in Rioja” (Oz Clarke).

Despite being Rioja’s most important grape variety about a century ago, today Gracianomakes up just 1% of plantings. Jean-Marc is keen to revive it – and when you taste this one, you’ll see why! The fruit comes from ancient, minuscule-yielding bush vines, which accounts for the wine’s incredible intensity. Fermented slowly in open-top wooden fermenters, with once a day punch down (the Burgundian method known as ‘pigeage’), then with 20 months in all-new French oak, this is a powerful, layered and decadent Rioja that will wow your wine-loving guests.

It certainly impressed the shows’ judges and critics! Along with those seven Golds, it has picked up an amazing amount of high point scores as well, including 93pts from Andreas Larsson:

“Herbaceous and peppery spiciness with wild berries, floral notes and discreet oak…93pts" ── (Andreas Larsson, World's Top Sommelier).
