Bodegas Baigorri Rioja Crianza 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Grapes are hand-selected using vibration and sorting tables. The stalks are removed from the grapes without squeezing them. The maceration process takes place in stainless steel tanks with temperature controls and long fermentations. A pneumatic press is used to extract the must, and the wine is then put in steel tanks where malolactic fermentation takes place. The wine is aged for 14 months in French and American oak barrels before it is clarified and bottled without filtration.

Purpur-Granat mit schwarzen Reflexen. Dörrzwetschgen und Holunder in der offenen Nase, begleitet von feinen Barriquenoten an geröstete Haselnüsse und Milchschokolade erinnernd, auch reife Waldbeeren und Früchtebrot. Cremiger Auftakt mit ansprechendem Fruchtdruck und runden Tanninen, samtige Struktur in der gut balancierten Mitte, wieder viel reife, dunkle Fruchtnuancen und desserthaftes Toasting, typische Rioja-Frische und viel Saft bis ins füllig ausklingende Finale.



Tasting Notes:

The wine announces itself with lots of toasty barrel aromas and plenty of vanilla; the nose also offers very ripe to even slightly overripe fruits: raisins, plums, boysenberries and even a hint of prune. This wine shows not just rich and overripe notes but also intense extraction: chocolate and a bit more of that prune.
