98/100 Cellartracker: "This wine was opened, not decanted, and enjoyed over 3 hours. Color was medium garnet and the persistence of flavor was remarkable... How can this wine be 50+ years old? How can I be? Rhetorical questions without doubt...".
98/100 Cellartracker: "Powerful nose with layers of aroma; black fruits, saddle leather, dried meat and tobacco. It's constantly changing every time you return to the glass. This is stunning and still so youthful, it has precision and clarity of flavour with pure black fruit balanced by perfect acidity, some real grip and layers of leather, tobacco smoke and meaty flavour. An absolutely stunning bottle".
97/100 Cellartracker: "The best Rioja I've had. So banlanced and executed so well. Incredible to think this was a 43 year old bottle!".
95/100 WineSpectator: "Extraordinary. Sweet vanilla and dried berry aromas and flavors have an unexpected richness in this vibrant red. Impressive for its balance of concentration and elegance. The long finish defines traditional Rioja at its best".
