Remelluri Rioja 2001

90 points

Rioja, Spain. 13.5%

My previous experiences with this wine (5-10 years ago) were a number of corked bottles. But this was perfect. Rich, plummy even – Robert Parker compared it to a Pomerol and it’s a fair comparison. Sophisticated yet fairly powerful. A modern Rioja, but not extracted. Nor is it over oaked, I think it may even be French oak.
