Gran Reservas are the pinnacle of Rioja, requiring a huge amount of attention, time and expense. They’re made only in great vintages with the finest grapes, and given extra tender loving care (and extra time) in the cellar. This one is truly exceptional – an exclusive release from one of Rioja’s top cellars, the famous Familia Martínez Bujanda.
Familia Martínez Bujanda is one of the finest bodegas in all Rioja,winning worldwide acclaim for their outstanding wines and innovation. They’ve even been voted in the World's Top 50 Wineries by Wine Spectator who says they are “one of the five best Rioja brands in the last 25 years”.
We’ve been buying their fine Rioja wines for many years, and now they’ve given access to this very special 2010 Gran Reserva that’s only now considered ready to drink. For this sumptuous red, Jesús Martínez Bujanda took parcels of his finest, strawberry scented Tempranillo and added Graciano and Mazuelo for extra aromatic complexity before tucking it away in expensive oak barrels for two years.
At eleven years old (still a baby by Gran Reserva standards) it is drinking absolutely beautifully now – as its two Golds and 94pts from Tim Atkins, awarded in 2020, attest.
The taste? Utterly divine! Look forward to silky layers of luscious red fruits, lifted by elegant floral, cinnamon, black pepper, vanilla and aromatic leather notes. The palate boasts an intense core of ripe raspberry with a long toasty oak finish and rich velvetiness that makes it an absolute joy to sip on. It’s a glorious match to a fine rack of lamb, so treat yourself to a decadent feast.
