Altos de Bergasa Gran Reserva Rioja 2016

Item Code: 4380416

Description

Mellow, 7-year-old Gran Reserva Rioja from this family-owned winery. Silky red fruits and spice.



Altos de Bergasa is from Bodegas La Eralta, a family-owned winery founded in 1990. Quite young in terms of Rioja.

It proudly owns 360 hectares of vineyard throughout the three subregions, with this luscious Gran Reserva named after its first plots, planted in the village of Bergasa.

At their modern cellars, they boast 10,000 French and American oak barrels, within which they age their finest wines – from Crianza to this exceptional Gran Reserva.

For this wine, they only age their finest grapes, all Tempranillo, ageing the wine at least a year in barrel and the rest of the time in bottle.

Despite its 7 years' age, it is still fairly youthful. Delicious drinking now, we recommend early opening and decanting to release all the flavours.

Low Stock Altos de la Guardia Selección de Familia Rioja 2014

Altos de la Guardia Selección de Familia Rioja 2014

Item Code: 4375914

Description

This glorious Rioja was destined for Reserva quality, aged a year in barrel and then bottled. But upon tasting, winemaker Jean-Marc Sauboua decided it could be tucked away a little longer.

It ended up being considerably longer than intended, but all's well that ends well, because 10 years later it's proved to be absolutely stunning – a silky, velvety luxury wine. A great choice with lamb.

Altos R Pigeage Graciano 2018

Item Code: 3711118

Description

15 Golds and 94 Suckling Points for the latest Altos Pigeage from Jean-Marc’s superb Rioja estate.



Our Haut-Brion-trained winemaker, Jean-Marc Sauboua, founded Altos in 2006 and, all together, has won over 180 Golds, Trophies, plus many high scores.

He works with the young Amaia Amestoy and Hector Gomez in the cellar, whose CVs includes experience at Napa’s Château Montelena, Contino and Murrieta in Rioja and Villacreces in Ribera del Duero.

They made this wine from old-vine (80+ years) Tempranillo and Graciano, vinifying it using Burgundy’s pigeage method.

This involves fermenting in open vats and plunging the skins into the liquid three times a day – hands-on winemaking that delivers great results.

Aged for two years in half new French oak and bottled unfiltered, the wine offers seams of intense black fruit with spice-box complexity.

Low Stock Altos Salix Alba Single Vineyard 2017

Altos Salix Alba Single Vineyard 2017

Item Code: 3881217

Description

From Winery of the Year 2017 with 125 Golds and Trophies galore, comes this stellar single vineyard Rioja. 80 year old vines lie in El Pisón, where Artadi source grapes for their £260 a bottle Rioja.



Since Jean-Marc Sauboua founded his Altos de Rioja winery, it's won 125 Golds, 40 scores over 90 and Trophies too. Winery of the Year, Rioja of the Year and more.

His secret? He's Bordeaux born and trained at First Growth Château Haut Brion. His aim was to make Grand Cru Classé wines in Rioja, so he chose only high altitude vineyards, the highest in all Rioja.

So grapes ripen slowly, with great finesse and intensity. Visit his winery, up in the clouds – it's cold! Salix Alba is a new release for him and very special.

It uses grapes solely from El Pisón, a tiny location where the famous Artadi bodega gets grapes for its £260 a bottle wine.

Ageing in all new French oak lends the finishing touches to this sumptuous red. A special dinner red.

Barón de Barbón 20th Anniversary 2021

Item Code: 4214921

Description

Year after year our bestselling Rioja rakes in 5-star reviews. It’s hallmark silky, toasty flavours are a hit with any Rioja fan. And at such a modest price for old-vine Tempranillo from the superior Alavesa region!



The supple, ripe Barón de Barbón has remained our bestselling Rioja since the early 2000s. That’s decades of popularity and loyal customers coming back for more. The Daily Express even claimed on its release that it’s “what true Rioja is all about.” The talent behind this contemporary, fruit driven red is the infectiously keen Javier Murúa. His father Julián owns Bodegas Muriel (a winery Julián's father established in 1926) in Rioja’s superior Alavesa. We’ve known the family well for years now, so much so that Javier calls us up after the vintage so we can get the top pick on their finest vats.

With its easy going, ripe red berry flavours and fragrant vanilla character, this supple Rioja is great on its own or with grilled meats or tapas.
