Details

A classic Spanish red wine from La Rioja, Baigorri Reserva is produced from old Tempranillo vines by the Baigorry winery. 

Meticuloulsy harvested and carefully transported to the cellar, after two selection processes only the very best grapes were selected to make this Spanish red wine.

Cold-soaked in stainless steel tanks to extract a high concentration of colour, tannins and flavour out of the skins, the grapes were then delicately crushed by pneumatic press, fermented and transferred into new French oak barrels.

After the completion of malolactic fermentation, this Rioja red wine was aged for 18 months in those same barrels. Finally, after its bottling  Baigorri Reserva 2010 was aged for a further years in the cellar prior to its release onto the market.

Decant this reserva from Baigorri 1 hour before drinking. The wine, incidentally, has a splendid future.

 

Additional Information

Appearance

The red wine Baigorri Reserva has a dark cherry colour with violet tinges and a ruby hue at the rim.

Nose

The nose of this single varietal Tempranillo is a Rioja textbook. Ripe red fruit and underbrush, with an earthy touch and notes of vanilla, Moroccan leather, Havana cigars, bitter cocoa, clove, cinnamon and exotic spices.

Palate

Sweet and meaty, with a smooth texture that delights the palate. This reserve red wine from Bodegas Baigorri has been smoothed by the years, though the long ageing process has not diminished its vitality. Juicy wild berries, hints of spices, balsamic notes and touches of liquorice. This wine from Rioja Alavesa has a tense acidity and a long finish with some mineral remembrances. 

Our personal opinion

A modern Rioja classic, Baigorri Reserva 2010 is a wine that one could drink every day without ever getting tired of it.
