2011 La Rioja Alta 904 Gran Reserva

La Rioja Alta's wines are always some of our most popular offers and the Gran Reserva 904 is one of their benchmark wines, not just for the bodegas but for the whole region, so we are delighted to have secured a small additional allocation of the 2011 vintage to offer to you. 

The 904 Gran Reserva takes its name from the 1904 merger of La Rioja Alta with Rioja Ardanza.  The blend is 89% Tempranillo and 11% Graciano, one of the rarer varieties in the region, giving deep colour and very fine, complex fruit aromas.  In June 2012 the wine was transferred into four and a half year old American oak barrels, made at the bodegas own cooperage, until bottling over four years later, in November 2016.

We first offered the 2011 last year, before the critics' scores were released.  Then vintage is officially rated 'excellent' by the Consejo Regulador and Neal Martin has scored this vintage 94 points, describing it as 'magnificent and with a suggested drinking window from this autumn. 

Offered in bond, immediately available, limited availability.

Producer Profile

Bodegas La Rioja Alta S.A.

One of the most famous bodegas in Rioja, La Rioja Alta S.A. was founded in Haro in 1890 by five families.  They named their first 'Reserva 1890' in honour of the date, the predecessor of today's Gran Reserva 890

In 1904 the company merged with Rioja Bodega Ardanza and the 904 Gran Reserva was subsequently created to commemorate this date.  These two Tempranillo-based Gran Reservas have become benchmarks of the classic Rioja style, given lengthy ageing in oak barrels made at the bodegas own cooperage and racked and fined by hand, by candlelight. 

Offered in bond, immediately available, limited availabiiity.
