La Rioja Alta Rioja Centenario 1890-1990 1973‏

Rioja Alta Centenario

A one-off commemorative bottling from one of Rioja's most prestigious producers


It has been a week of Spanish success (excess?) at Grand Millesime. Our second parcel of aged Rioja is also approaching a sellout.


I did save one wine for a special email for over the weekend and

here it is.

Soliciting Flavours: This wine is a one off and what a one off it is. It was released in 1990 to celebrate 100 years since the winery's formation. The grapes used are mainly tempranillo (85%), with graciano, mazuela and viura added to the mix. It is aged 2 years in wooden vats, 10 years in 18 to 20 year old American oak barrels and had had 29 years in the bottle when we opened it. This wine was quite simply stunning. Lovely aromas of meatiness and leather were followed by beautifully fresh flavours of baked orange and spices. It had great length with these flavours persisting for an age on the palate, intensifying rather than diminishing sat in the mouth. I absolutely loved it. Excellent+/Superb
