Paisajes IX Vila Viniteca 2003

External Review by CoolVines:

Created in the mid-eighties, Paisajes y Vinedos (Landscapes and Vineyards) is a joint project between Quim Vila, owner of Barcelona's best wine store Vila Viniteca, and Miguel Angel de Gregoria of Rioja's Allende estate. The idea is to source the best fruit from single, old vine parcels from several villages in Rioja. The wines are then made at Finca Allende and aged for at least 12 months in French oak. Paisajes is unusual in Rioja in several ways. First, some of the bottlings are produced from pure Grenache (its usually only a small part of the blend). Secondly, every bottling is from a specific site and vinified separately. Thirdly, the estate pays much higher than market price to have only the best parts of these parcels, ensuring that the raw material is quite exceptional. The wines are fermented in tank then aged in new French oak for at least a year.
