Remírez de Ganuza, Reserva 2005
Fernando Remírez de Ganuza is an example of the new money that was once typical of Rioja. His background in real estate gave him the insights and contacts to buy prime vineyards. 50-year-old Tempranillo (90%) and Graciano (10%), aged for almost two years in new oak (80% US and 20% French). Modern, alight with ripe black stone fruits, richly polished.  18pts/20 (93/100pts)
