Bodegas Breton Rioja Lorinon Crianza 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is very aromatic but much of the aromas come from wood. There are notes of seashells and sweet root vegetables that attempt to fill the void at the center of all the woodiness but this has a black hole nose. In the mouth this is hard and dry with a fair amount of fruit but tremendous extracted tannins that turn bitter on the short finish. A wine for masochists. 80pts

Our wines have been at the forefront of Rioja on numerous occasions. The Lorifion range combines traditional Riojan winemaking practices -using a blend of different grape varieties from different vineyards- with a modem style. Read less

Great Rioja under $20! Nice tannins, but not overly assertive, good flavors of cherry, plum.

Sawdust nose. A very dry wine that melts away from the attack and dissipates.

Bit of wet wool on the nose. Acidic dark cherries with a cacophony of an electronic battery finish.
