  • Remelluri Granja Remelluri Rioja Gran Reserva 2013


    “2013 could very well be the most challenging vintage of recent times, a year with 900 liters of rain, which created a lot of problems, including botrytis during the harvest. Produced selected Tempranillo and Garnacha, thea2013 Granja Remelluri Gran Reserva has lower alcohol, 13.5%, and aged in barrel for 27 to 29 months. Compared with the 2014, you see less-perfect ripeness in the tannins, and it’s a little lighter, sharper and a little more austere. I think this is a triumph over the very adverse conditions of the year. 8,000 bottles were filled in May 2016, when they normally produce around 20,000 bottles. Drink: 2020-2026. 94 points

  • Remelluri Rioja Blanco 2019


    The white 2019 Blanco comes from a year that was marked by hail and frost in April and May that resulted in a small crop that ripened early in a warm growing season. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in used barriques, foudres and 1,200-liter concrete eggs. The wine is powerful at 14.4% alcohol but has good freshness showcased by a pH of 3.21. This is a very serious and complex white, with spice and smoke, balanced and harmonious, combining power with elegance. It’s a little more fluid, with more finesse and delicacy, despite the fact that they got low yields and the wine had natural concentration. 8,766 bottles and 103 magnums were filled in May 2021. Drink: 2022-2032. 94+ points

    There will be some changes in the Lindes lineup, for which they plan to even have a completely independent winery. The idea is to have up to six village wines from Lindes in 2021.”

  • Remelluri Rioja Reserva 2013


    “The flagship red 2013 Reserva, the wine most people call simply Remelluri, was cropped from a cool, wet, challenging year, and it has a little less alcohol and higher acidity than the previous harvest. It had an élevage of 20 months in oak barriques. It has an herbal twist reflecting the conditions of the year, and it is developed and polished. It has the grippy, Nebbiolo-like tannins that are a signature of the Remelluri wines, a little more evident in a year like 2013. A Remelluri for food. 214,321 bottled produced. It was bottled in April 2016. Drink: 2019-2013. 93 points

    Remelluri is Telmo Rodríguez’s family’s property in Rioja. He returned in 2010 to take over the management from his father together with his sister Amaia. Since then, he and his business partner Pablo Eguzkiza have implemented many changes that can now be seen in the wines. I got up to date with all the missing vintages of all the wines produced at the property, so I tasted a couple of vintages of most of the wines, which is always good for comparison’s sake. I see the evolution of the different years, and I look forward to taste the 2016 versions of wines like the Remelluri Reserva and the Granja Remelluri Gran Reserva, because what I see in the other wines points at a great development and improvement through meticulous work and small changes in the vineyards and winery.”
