A real legend in Rioja. Rated 19.5/20 by Jancis Robinson. Bottled in June 1968: 102 in cask!! Extremely good storage conditions. Fully mature and therefore drinking well now, or cellar for 20-25 years.

The bottles in the pictures are exactly the bottles which are going to be sent.

The bottles have been stored in a private cellar with temperature control.

Shipment will be made using special boxes for transporting wine bottles.

Please note that it is forbidden to send alcohol to the USA, Brazil and Canada except for merchants with alcohol licence.

100/100 Wine Advocate: "1959 was one of the best vintages in the history of Rioja, even though 1958 was classified as excellent and 1959 "only" received a very good score. Nowadays most of the wines from 1959 are still in very good shape. I have been lucky enough to drink the 1959 Viña Real Gran Reserva before and some bottles had been flirting with perfection. The one that sparkled this tasting note clearly was. The wine was not bottled until June 1968, nearly nine years after the harvest. Imagine how they harvested those grapes in Rioja. This was an amazing vintage and this was a superb bottle, all complexity and elegance, really developed, with great acidity. It is really long and balanced, with surprising balsamic, youthful aromas. Harmonic, young but developed, intense but light, somehow contradictory, but everyone was in agreement: glasses were soon empty, the best sign for a favorite wine. Judging by this bottle, this wine could go on, and on, and on and on..."

19.5/20 Jancis Robinson: "1959 was probably one of the best vintages ever, but it only got an official 'muy buena' as 1958 was awarded 'excelente'. Viña Real Gran Reserva was fermented in the small winery in Elciego, in cement vats, as it was from the early 40s until the end of the century. It was bottled in August 1968. Great nose, crunchy, alive, spicy, with cherries, slightly smoky. The mouth is polished, terribly complex, and full. Harmonious and young. Unbelievable. It even has some of those intriguing aromas that remind me of a pure lambic beer. Astonishing".

19.5/20 Elmundovino: "Overcome the adjectives: a perfect harmony and youth, everything in its place, the fruit as alive as if it were five years old and all the softness of its long aging. A great Rioja is this: one of the largest and, in addition, the most eternal red wines in the world. Immense.".
