General information

In the production of the Gran Reserva, Riscal uses grapes from old vines over 80 years old, from its own productions or purchased from local fixed winemakers. Once the wine has been selected to make the Gran Reserva after the unification of the harvest, it passes to French oak barrels, where it will remain between two and a half and three years, plus another three years in the bottle before its commercialization.

Tasting notes marques de riscal gran reserva

Intense cherry red color, with violet iridescences. On the nose it expresses a complex, balsamic aromatic intensity, in perfect balance between the fruit aromas and the roasted notes of light toasting reminiscent of fine woods. On the palate it is unctuous, in harmony with the fruit, with a good tannic concentration, round and with a persistent finish.

General information

Barón de Chirel wine arises in 1986 as a result of an experimental elaboration from a selection of grapes from very old vines, between 80 and 110 years old, of very low yield and high quality. From the results of this test comes the one that will be the forerunner of what could be called, wines from the new era of Rioja.This wine is produced in a very limited way in only the great vintages, where the character of the vineyard, the soil is expressed and of the variety, within a harmonious set. Starting with the 1995 vintage, Riscal manually selects the grapes for this great wine with the installation of selection tables. Riscal is the first winery to introduce this system in Spain, marking a milestone in the production of quality red wines. Barón wine de Chirel ferments at a controlled temperature of 26º, in small-capacity Allier wooden vats. The malolactic fermentation is then carried out in fine-grained Allier oak barrels. The aging will last between 18 and 24 months, depending on the characteristics of each vintage. Once this is finished, the wine is bottled, passing a refining period of not less than 2 years before going to market.

General information

The Marqués de Riscal reserves are basically made from grapes from Tempranillo variety vines planted before the 1970s, located in the best calcareous clay soils of the Rioja Alavesa. This variety supports aging in wood and bottle aging well thanks to its good acid balance and fine tannicity. The Graciano and Mazuelo varieties, whose percentage in the mixture does not exceed 10%, provide freshness and liveliness of color.
Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 26ºC with a maceration time that does not exceed 12 days. The Riscal reserves remain for approximately two years in American oak barrels, configuring a wine that falls within the canons of Riojan classicism, fresh, fine, elegant and with great aging potential. Before going on the market, it has a minimum bottle refinement period of one year.

General information

This wine has been made with grapes of the Tempranillo and Graciano varieties, from the old vineyard that surrounds the Finca de Torrea, where the facilities of the Marques de Riscal wineries are currently located. The terrain is the classic clay-limestone soil of Rioja Alavesa that has historically provided the best qualitative results. Harvesting done by hand and in boxes of small capacity, passes through the selection tables, before proceeding to destemming and squeezing. Then it ferments in small Allier wooden vats, at a temperature that does not exceed 25ºC, with the intention of preserving the fruity characters as much as possible. The extraction is carried out with gentle pumping over and a short maceration, in order to maintain the fineness, elegance and freshness necessary to have a pleasant and persistent passage through the mouth. After undergoing malolactic fermentation, the wine remains in Allier French oak barrels for 18 months, and after a short period of refinement in the bottle, the wine goes on the market. It is a different style from the wines that Marqués de Riscal has been traditionally making.
With a more modern profile, a greater fruity and less balsamic character, with a shorter aging and in French oak, and a shorter period of aging in the bottle. In the mouth, it maintains the Riscal style, perhaps with a greater structure, but it is still fresh, elegant and easy to drink. Extractions of phenolic compounds during fermentation continue to be done in a very limited way in order to maintain the fineness of the wines. Regarding the harvest dates, they try not to delay too long in order to preserve enough acidity to cool the wines and improve their aging in the bottle.
