A heady, expansive bouquet evokes fresh, mineral-accented red berries, cherry liqueur, vanilla and cedary oak, and a sexy floral nuance emerges with air. Silky and seamless on the palate, offering alluringly sweet, concentrated raspberry, cherry-vanilla, spicecake and floral pastille flavors that are given spine and focus by a core of juicy acidity. Rich yet energetic in style, displaying wonderful finishing clarity, fine-grained tannins and outstanding, floral-dominated persistence. -- Josh Raynolds

I was really blown away by the 2010 Granja Remelluri Gran Reserva, their take on more classical Rioja; IT is aged in oak for a longer time, but not without having selected grapes from their very best plots that would benefit from the extended élevage. The varietal composition is approximately 75% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha and 5% Graciano. Like all of the wines here, it fermented in small stainless steel and oak vats with indigenous yeasts, and then matured in oak barrels for some 26 months. The nose is full of flowers, blood orange, sweet spices, violet pastille and curry. It's very aromatic and perfumed, with the herbs that you find in the Remelluri mountains, rosemary especially. It is extremely attractive, with a nose that makes you go back to it over and over again. This is still very young, but terribly balanced. The tannins are refined and there is a fine thread of acidity going through its core and lifting it up. This could very well be the best vintage of Granja so far. And having seen the improvements in the vineyards, my feeling is that the best is yet to come. Around 20,000 bottles produced. - LG

The 2010 Granja Remelluri Gran Reserva is a beauty, a blend of 75% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, and the rest Graciano that spent over two years in oak. This medium to full-bodied, incredibly classic Rioja offers tons of dark, earth fruit, cedarwood, olive, and tobacco aromas and flavors. It has terrific concentration, beautiful mid-palate density, ripe tannins, and a great, great finish. It’s beautiful today, if not still young, and will keep for another 15 years or more.

Shows a fresh strawberry, raspberry and red-flower character. Mineral notes, too. Full body, a juicy texture and firm yet ripe tannins. Long, oaky notes. Needs some time to soften. Better in 2019.
