Bodegas Baigorri Crianza 2018
- Textured, savoury
- Rioja DOC
This really isn’t just any Rioja Criana. If you’ve been following the wine revolution in Rioja, you’ll know that increasingly producers are rebelling against the terms relating to their ageing both in barrel and bottle. There’s so much more to the region than the age of the wines and the oak that gets thrown (or forced) upon the beautiful wines of the region.
Tempranillo and grenache that go into this blend hail from vines in the illustrious sub-region Rioja Alavesa, known for its incredibly nuanced expressions of the native grapes. We recommend a decant for this one, letting it breathe for a couple of hours before diving in. At this point, you’ll be rewarded with herbacious, floral, blue-fruited goodness. This is nothing like any Rioja we’ve ever had, and we’re all the better for it. Viva la revolución!
“This wine will always remind me of the stunning views from the winery at Bodegas Baigorri, almost like they captured the essence of the stunning landscape in the bottle. Lovers of traditional Rioja will be appeased with the chewy oak tannins, but it gives so much more in elegance and nuance than most in its league, especially at this age. I can't get enough.”
Full price $75.00 from the producer.
