Baron de Ley Gran Reserva Rioja 2010

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Vines: Mainly made using Tempranillo grapes grown in our Cenicero vineyards where the orientation of the slopes, Atlantic climate and low yields offer us the perfect grapes for this style of wine. Ageing: Following the most classical concepts of Rioja wine, this Reserva was aged for 24 months in 50% American and 50% French oak casks and has then spent a further 3 years rounding off in the bottle. Tasting notes: Lovely ruby-red with medium depth of colour and slight brick-red hues. Great aromatic intensity on the nose, with ripe fruit well integrated with the toasted oak and balsamic aromas from the cask. After a little while in the glass, these aromas evolve to produce traces of infusions, spices and tobacco. In the mouth, the attack is round and balanced, displaying silky tannins while still remaining fresh and lively. The aftertaste is long and lingering, recalling reminders of toasted wood and dried fruits.

A dream come true, BARÓN DE LEY is a winery which was devised and founded in 1985 by a small group of prestigious Rioja professionals which decided to create a project which was unique at that time in the Denominación de Origen Calificada Rioja: a winery modelled on the Médoc châteaux, bringing together all the conditions that make a wine a work of art. With this objective, the creators of BARÓN DE LEY acquired the Imas estate, within the boundaries of Mendavia and on the left bank of the River Ebro. It is an exceptional place for growing vines due to its climatic conditions and the characteristics of its soils, on which 90 hectares of vines were planted. Read less
