Baron de Ley, Rioja Gran Reserva, Spain 2001

Baron de Ley, Rioja Gran Reserva, Spain 2001
This estate has forged a fine reputation for good-value, modern Riojas. Here, grapes are handpicked and the wine is aged in a mix of French and US oak. The complex, smoky palate boasts meat, coffee and prune notes, bright acidity and silky tannins. Delicious now but has years ahead of it. 16.75pts/20 (89/100pts)
