Food Pairings for Contino Gran Reserva Rioja
Jesus Madrazo marries the new and old Spain with this single vineyard wine, its<br/>character informed by old vines and a combination of French and American oak.<br/>Aged in barrels for two years and in bottle for further year, this is a blend<br/>of Tempranillo 85%, Mazuelo & garnacha 5%, Graciano 10% from selected plots<br/>in the Contino Estate. Deep red cherry colour, then, on the nose there is an<br/>explosion of ripe berry fruits and hints of liquorice and balsamic notes. The<br/>2001 has the substance and the intensity to last until 2018, possibly even<br/>longer in the magnum. It is in its infancy, its fuits both red and black, its<br/>tannins still quite assertive Wait a few years then try with Beef Wellington!<br/> <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
