The $2500 Wine Cellar

Part 1: Getting started with Rioja and Beaujolais

 


« Prev Next » 4 of 8
Three wines I added to my cellar this past year are

2001 La Rioja Alta Vina Ardanza Reserva Especial @ $30

2004 Bodegas Riojanas Monte Real Reserva @ $20

2001 CVNE Vina Real Gran Reserva @ $40

Okay, so I’ve already cheated a bit, sort of, by exceeding the $30 per bottle price, but the net result here is an average of $30 per bottle for a solid selection of cellarable Rioja. Total cost for nine bottles is about $300, with tax and delivery included.

    that's a wine that would be best consumed sooner rather than later. It's from a good vintage but was meant to be approachable on release.
