The wine Conde Valdemar Gran Reserva bears witness to a winemaking tradition that goes back more than 125 years.
This Spanish red wine wine is produced by Bodegas Valdemar, a company that owns vineyards in some of the best areas across the three subzones of the Rioja DO.
After a meticulous harvest, the grapes were traditionally vinified in stainless steel tanks under temperature control.
Then this red wine from La Rioja underwent a long ageing process of 30 months in French oak barrels.
Finally, Conde de Valdemar Gran Reserva 2008 was bottled in June 2012.
Drink this wine of Bodegas Valdemar from now until 2028.
Open 30 minutes before drinking.
The red wine Conde Valdemar Gran Reserva has a clean, medium cherry-coloured robe with an orangeish rim.
Classy and expressive, this Gran reserve red wine by Bodegas Valdemar displays a textbook Rioja nose. Wild berries, clove, cinnamon, fine leather, balsam, tobacco, cedar and balsam. Complex and ever-changing.
Round and smooth, this Rioja Gran Reserva Conde Valdemar golden label has a mature character and some ripe, velvety tannins. Combination of fruit and wood is completely harmonious, and both are nicely underpinned by remembrances of balsam, aromatic herbs ans toast. Everything fits perfectly here, with no rough edges whatsoever. Long, complex finish with some bitter and balsamic remembrances.
