Altos de la Guardia Crianza Rioja 2016 comes from Altos, a Trophy-winning estate founded by winemaker Jean-Marc Sauboua with many high ratings and over 125 Gold-medal wins to its name. This lovely, silky elegant delight has not only won Gold though! It’s won Gold, a Great Gold, the TROPHY for Best Wine Over £10 at the Wines of Spain Awards, and high points from critics including Guia Peñin, Tim Atkin and James Suckling.
“Mixed delicious violets and lavender with dark plums and treacle tart. Very fresh with tangy acidity … 91pts " (James Suckling).
Jean-Marc was raised in Bordeaux, where he is renowned for his very fine wines. He was trained at First Growth Haut-Brion, so no wonder. But Jean-Marc also has Spanish heritage, and when he decided to start a project of his own, Rioja was the place he wanted to be. And only the very highest parts of the appellation – the vineyards he gets his fruit from are the highest in the region. You can really see the quality; his wines have an intensity and clarity that impress all who taste them.
