Background

Under the Excellens range, this 2010 Gran Reserva is the very first Rioja produced by Marques de Caceres. Fresher in style than the Marques de Caceres Gran Reserva this Rioja has quickly won the plaudits picking up 93 points in the Tim Atkin Special Report. Taken from a special election of 35-50 year-old vineyards with some parcels in Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa that are 65-85 years old. The Grapes comes from vineyards planted at various altitudes (420-620 metres above sea level) from different zones within the Cenicero boundary, Elciego and Laguardia, which confer complexity. 24-26 months is spent in barrel, followed by a minimum of 4 years aged in bottle before release.

Food Matching

A big Rioja like this needs a big food to stand by it!- think T-Bone Steaks, Rib-Eyes and Veal chops.
