Barón de Chirel Rioja Reserva, Marqués de Riscal

Barón de Chirel Rioja Reserva, Marqués de Riscal

The Baron de Chirel wine first appeared in 1986 as the result of an experimental production using a selection of grapes from very old vines, between 80 to 110 years old, with very low yields and high quality. The results of this trial was the precursor of the so-called “new era” of Rioja wines. The wine is produced on a very limited scale and only in the best vintage years, the aim is to express the character of the vineyard, the soil and the varieties as part of a single, harmonious whole. Aged for 20 months in French oak and then in the bottle for 1 year, the wine has aromatic intensity of the toasted and spicy aromas from the French oak, together with ripe, dark-berried fruits and smooth, soft, polished tannins. Complex and elegant with a long, balanced finish.
