Telmo Rodriguez Bodega Lanzaga Rioja 2017 - The Spanish Table

Telmo Rodriguez Bodega Lanzaga Rioja 2017

This is from Telmo Rodriguez' estate of Lanzaga and is the regular bottling.  But saying "regular bottling" is a bit of an undersell as this is some seriously tasty and elegant Rioja.

"The 2017 Lanzaga comes from a harvest marked by the killer frost (-5 degrees Celsius) of April 27th and 28th, but the higher-altitude vines from the village of Lanciego escaped the disaster. This is a blend from their 15 to 20 hectares of organically farmed vines, all head-pruned on slopes rich in clay and limestone, mixing red and white soils, places with more sandstone, others with more marl, looking for complexity. It fermented in 6,000-liter concrete vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in 1,500- and 2,500-liter oak foudres and 225-liter barriques for 14 months. It has great balance and freshness, it's very clean and doesn't show any of the challenges or shortages of the harvest. It's creamy, juicy and medium-bodied, with very fine tannins, a serious wine that changed in 2013-2014 to this complexity and depth. The vines from Lanciego didn't suffer as much as other villages with the frost of 2017. 27,332 bottles produced. It was bottled in May and June 2019." 94 points Luis Guttierez The Wine Advocate
