Details

Always a wise buy, Baigorri Crianza is a Spanish red wine crafted by the prestigious Bodegas Baigorri from a blend of 90% Tempranillo, complemented with tiny amounts of Grenache and other varieties.

The grapes of this Crianza red wine were harvested by hand and brought to the cellar in little boxes. After that they were destemmed, separately fermented in stainless steel tanks, and macerated with frequent pump-overs and punch-downs.

Gently pressed, the grapes completed malolactic fermentation and then they were transferred into new French and American oak barrels, where this Rioja red wine was aged for a period of 14 months.

Finally, this wine from La Rioja was clarified, blended and aged for a further months in the bottle before its release.

Drink Baigorri Crianza 2016 from now to 2024.

Additional Information

Appearance

The wine Baigorri Crianza has a medium-high, cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim and some ruby glints.

Nose

Perfectly balanced, this crianza red wine from Rioja smells of ripe black fruit and fruit compote, nuanced by hint of strawberry milkshake, some touches of vanilla and suggestions of herbs, toast and sweet spices.

Palate

Velvety-bodied, meaty and savoury, this red wine by Bodega Baigorri exhibits notes of wild berries, spices and some remembrances of tobacco, coffee and leather. Ripe, well-integrated tannins, great acidity and a long, spicy finish.

Our personal opinion

From the heart of Spain's most prominent wine region, Baigorri Crianza 2016 combines the traditional character of Rioja Alavesa with a modern-day approach to winemaking.

    Excellent producer from Rioja. All of their wines have élan, intensity and life. No melancholy and no autumn leaves.
