If there are wines that transcend time, then Remírez de Ganuza Gran Reserva may well be one of them. In fact, the 2004 vintage of this Spanish red wine is one of the very few Spanish wines which got a perfect, Robert Parker 100-point score.
Crucially, this Gran Reserve red wine comes from one of La Rioja's best terroirs. Moreover, it is exquisitely crafted by its winemaker, Fernando Remírez de Ganuza, a purebred riojano through whose veins runs wine instead of blood.
After that, Remírez de Ganuza Gran Reserva 2007 was drawn-off and transferred into new French oak barrels, where it was aged for 46 months. Finally, the wine was aged for some years in the bottle before its eagerly awaited release.
Drink this red wine from La Rioja by Remírez de Ganuza over the next 15 years. Decant a minimum of 2 hours before drinking.

The wine Remírez de Ganuza Gran Reserva has a lavish, high cherry robe with a beautiful violet rim.
Entrancing aromas of black truffle, overgrowth, red and black fruit, blue flowers and incense, stemming from some of the purest Tempranillo and Graciano vineyards in all of Rioja. Some toasted notes, ever-evolving mineral hints, and some spicy and earthy overtones. Enthralling.
As smooth, classy and deep as it gets, Remírez de Ganuza Gran Reserva exhibits some luscious fruit, accompanied by some amazing mineral and graphite notes, alongside touches of Moroccan leather and Havana cigars. Superb tannins, a rock-solid acidity that promises a long life ahead, and unending finish with a long aftertaste of pepper, cinnamon and vanilla.
