Description

At Marqués de Riscal, there used to be "winemaker's wines" among its Historic Reservas, like the Reserva Medoc and the XR, which never became commercial names. In the tradition of the Jerez capataces (cellarmasters), the enologist marked some of the barrels in chalk with the letters XR as a consequence of having found special characteristics which were not present in others.

This XR was never marketed as such but was always a reference point for the master winemaker.

This custom lasted almost a century, between the harvests of 1869 and 1964. XR 2015, its first vintage, pays tribute to all the master winemakers who, from Jean Pineau to today, have helped to forge a part of the greatest history of Spanish wine in Marqués de Riscal

Notes de Presse

Mundus Vini 2023

Tasting

Apparence : Intense black-cherry colour with good depth of colour and hardly any signs of evolution.

On the Nose : Very expressive aromas on the nose with notes of liquorice, cinnamon and black pepper, with just a subtle hint of the long cask-ageing, thanks to its great complexity and ripe, concentrated fruit.

In the Mouth : Fresh and easy to drink on the palate, good backbone and lovely, polished tannins. The long, persistent finish leaves gentle balsamic reminders of the finest quality.

Food & Wine pairring : This wine goes well with ham, mild cheeses, casseroles which are not highly spiced, bean and pulse dishes, poultry, red meat, grills and roasts.
