Description

The Barón de Chirel wine appeared in 1986 as a result of experiments in vinification using a selection of grapes from very old vines, 80 to 110 years old, with very low yields and very high quality. From the results of these trials a new style of wine was born, the precursor of what could be called "new era" Rioja wines. This wine is produced on a very limited scale, and only in the very best vintages, when it can express all the character of the vineyard, the terroir and the variety, drawn together in a harmonious whole. From the 1995 harvest onwards, Riscal select the grapes for this great wine by hand, with the installation of sorting tables. Riscal was the first winery in Spain to introduce this method, setting a landmark in the production of fine-quality red wines.

Barón de Chirel undergoes fermentation at a controlled temperature of 26º in low-capacity, Allier-oak vats. Afterwards, malolactic fermentation takes place in fine-grained, Allier-oak casks. Ageing will last between 18 and 24 months, depending on the characteristics of each harvest. Once this is complete, the wine is bottled and subsequently it is left to round off for no less than 2 years before it is released for sale.


Tasting

Lovely black-cherry colour dark and deep-robed.

Powerful aromatic intensity, in which the the spicy, toasted character from the Allier oak stand out. Jammy dark-berried fruit.

A fresh, creamy palate, smooth, elegant tannins and a long, balanced finish.
