Just Arrived: The 10th Century Gran Reserva From The Historic 95-Point Vintage Delivers Real Terruño! It Is The Classically Structured 2010 Remelluri Rioja Gran Reserva La Granja (98JS/95WA/96ZBT)! Only a Handful of Cases Available in the US! Begins Under $35!
Rioja fans take note - this is an offer to get excited about. We’ve secured a handful of cases of the 2010 Remelluri Rioja Gran Reserva La Granja (98JS/95WA) and these have just arrived at our warehouse! As wine enthusiasts we all know that 2010 goes down as one of the great universal vintages and in Spain’s celebrated region of Rioja, the acclaimed 95-point vintage challenges the likes of the benchmark years of 1994, 2001, and 2004. And while the iconic traditionalists of La Rioja Alta and Lopez de Heredia express a leaner Burgundian side to the indigenous varietals of the area, Remelluri delivers a little more fruit, structure, and density to the wines. Recently certified organic, Remelluri focuses on instilling a sense of place or terruño (terroir) in their wines, all while remaining truly classic.
I remember selling the 1989 Gran Reserva and the Reservas at Zachys years ago. This is one of the icons of Rioja situated in what I believe to be one of the most breathtaking vineyard locations in the world. Unfortunately, little of their wines are regularly seen here. In fact, the Gran Reserva La Granja is seldom produced (it’s only from exceptional vintages) and since the immortal 1982 vintage, this wine has only been made a few times with a mere handful of cases arriving in the US. To complement the offering, we are also including the 2010 Remelluri Rioja Reserva (95JS/93WA), which at under $35, is another age-worthy gem, and an excellent introduction to the historic estate.
Special pricing valid through March 23rd or while supplies remain available.
All my best,
