2 bottle of Marqués de Riscal 1962 Reserva
Wine bought in Marqués de Riscal Winery, Elciego - La Rioja, in 1998.
Stored in private cellar up to today.
92/100 Fine Wine Magazine: "Good looking, normal size bottle. Colour is brick red, and looking bright, evolved and light. On the nose it is open, mature, ripe, generous and forward. The taste is perfumed, vivid, and dry, with medium tannin, with drying tannins, and average in acidity, light and developing. On the palate it is layered and has plum, toasty, chocolate, creamy and dried-fruit flavours. The finnish is medium long and vibrant. Perfectly stored bottles are still very worthy and will last well for another 1-5 years and decant at least 1 hour before tasting".
92/100 Cellartracker: "Pefect cork (bottles are recorked every 15 years at the bodega). 30% of Cabernet in the blend. Beautiful transparent colour. Very clean, nuanced nose of dried berries with a hint of mushrooms and farmyard. Rather lean body with still some fruits remaining. Exquisite, it had a vibe of older Bordeaux".
70% tempranillo, 30% cabernet sauvignon. Vinified and matured in big wooden vats for 12 months. Poured to old barrels and then aged for 50 months. Racked 15 time, once every 3 months in the first 3 years, using the traditional Riojan cask-to-cask method. Clarified with egg white and bottled directly from the barrels. Sold by purchase order from the cellars of the winery.
