In Marqués de Riscal, there were wine cellar wines, within its Historical Reserve, such as the Medoc Reserve and the XR without becoming commercial names. In the style of Jerez foremen, the winemaker marked some of his barrels with chalk with the word XR, having found some special characteristics that were not found in others. This XR was never marketed, but He was always a reference for the master winemaker. This custom lasted almost a century, between the harvests of 1869 and 1964. The XR 2015, its first vintage, is a tribute to all the wine masters who, from Jean Pineau to the present day, have contributed to forging a part of the best history of Spanish wine in Marqués de Riscal.
