Baron de Ley Reserva Rioja 2011

Member Review by EMark:

Very bright fruity nose. On the tongue there certainly is bright fruit but, wow, is it ever tart. There is some herbaciousness, but again, the, pretty much in your face, characteristic seems to be lemon pith. If this was a light-bodied white wine I would say “refreshing.” In a full-bodied red, though, I am just perplexed.

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

TASTING NOTES: Ruby-red colour. On the nose it surprises you with its powerful fruity character mingling with reminders of its noble ageing, traces of coconut, toffee and attractive wild herb nuances. After a powerful attack the sensation of soft, supple volume gradually extends across the palate to end with a long finish. In the aftertaste you are again reminded of the red-berry fruit mingled with hints of wild herbs. VINES: Mainly made using Tempranillo grapes grown in our Mendavia vineyards. AGING: After 20 months ageing in new American-oak casks, a further 24 months rounding off in the bottle has brought it to its moment of plenitude.
