2010 Baron de Chirel Marques de Riscal Rioja - Spain Red

St Barth’s Wine


Marqués de Riscal is one of the oldest Rioja wineries. Founded in Elciego (Álava) in 1858 by Guillermo Hurtado de Amézaga, from the outset it has been a point of reference in the winemaking business at both national and international level. Barón de Chirel wine first appeared in 1986 as the result of experimental production using a selection of grapes from very old vines, between 80 and 110 years’ old, with a very low yield and high quality. From the results of these trials would appear what we could say was the precursor of the so-called “new era” of Rioja wines. This wine is produced on a very limited scale and only in the best vintage years, in which the character of the vineyard, the soil and the variety are expressed as part of a single, harmonious whole. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 26ºC and the maceration period does not exceed 12 days. The malolactic fermentation takes place in small wooden vats with a capacity of 20,000 liters and the wine is then aged for 20 months in Bordeaux Style barrels made of French oak. Finally, the wine spends a minimum time of a year rounding off in the bottle before being released for sale.


A dark cherry color, lively with few signs of evolution. The high aromatic intensity in which the toasted and spicy aromas from the French oak predominate, together with ripe, dark-berried fruit. In the mouth, it is fresh and smooth with soft, polished tannins in which the wood is not too intrusive. Complex and elegant with a long, balanced finish.
