Lopez De Heredia Vina Bosconia Gran Reserva Rioja 2001

Lopez De Heredia Vina Bosconia Gran Reserva Rioja 2001

Lopez de Heredia is one of the truly great wineries in the world. Sisters Maria Jose and Mercedes continue to make wine their great grandfather did over a century ago. And the wines age with singular grace and elegance. Their current Reserva releases are already over a decade old when released their much sought after Gran Reservas are over 20 years old.

2001 is one of the top vintages so far this century and it is a year that should be tried.  "The 2001 Viña Bosconia Gran Reserva fits the profile of the wine, a little riper (is it Garnacha?) with heady aromas and a touch of rusticity. 2001 saw good yields of very healthy grapes. They started picking the reds the 15th of October, and the last grapes were picked the 29th of October with good weather. The grapes ripened properly and thoroughly, and the wine has great balance for a long aging in bottle. This is 80% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacho and the rest Graciano and Mazuelo that fermented in their 153-year-old oak vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in used barrels for 10 years. It has 13% alcohol, a pH of 3.4 and 6.5 grams of acidity (tartaric). As the wine sat in the glass (even overnight), it became finer and subtler. 5,000 bottles produced." 96 points Luis Gutierrez The Wine Advocate
