Rioja’s ageworthy gran reservas mature for a minimum of five years before release; this 2004 comes from a superb vintage.
What You Need To Know
Most of Rioja’s larger wine producers source their grapes from a mix of small growers, cooperatives and, sometimes, estate vines. But Bodegas Valdemar, which was founded in 1889 by Joaquín Martínez Bujanda, relies entirely on vineyards that it owns, with more than 1,000 acres of vines accumulated methodically by successive generations of descendants. Still family-owned, Bodegas Valdemar is today Rioja’s largest estate winery, with a focus on precision farming and a tight grip on quality. This gran reserva has mellowed gracefully with nearly a decade of age, displaying earthy cherry flavors and polished tannins.
