Wine Bible’s Karen MacNeil names Rioja Wine of the Year

Karen names REMELLURI Reserva 2012 (Rioja, Spain) Wine of 2020

“A wine so alluring, sensual, and complex that I was stopped in my tracks when I first wrote about it last July. Rioja Reservas (from tempranillo) remain some of the most exquisite red wines on the planet, and they taste like they should cost three times what they do. In this Remelluri Reserva, the heady incense, dark chocolate, sea salt, exotic spices, black licorice, earth, and cigar notes have coalesced into aromas and flavors that are simply stunning. The wine has power, fantastic volume, and velocity. And unlike so many wines which you can only buy young, Rioja Reservas—with 8 years of age like this one–are on the market and deliciously ready to drink.”

Remelluri Reserva

 La Granja Nuestra Señora de Remelluri is a family owned winery that has been making some of the most exciting wines in Rioja for decades. If you love the flavors of Old World wines, Karen says you MUST try this. (98 points)
