What We Think:
Yes to everything Ned said! What a Rioja this is. We couldn’t get the 2011 vintage so we settled for the 2012 at £11.50. At the time the book was published, the 2011 vintage would have set you back £11.
The vanilla hits you as you put your nose in the glass and it made me want to taste it immediately. Dark fruits on the palate with hints of chocolate and a lovely smooth, creamy, vanilla finish. Bravo to Tesco for forging a partnership with Baron de Ley because this is serious wine.
It’s not cheapest wine we’ve ever bought from a supermarket but it might just be one of the best. at £11.50 it is easily worth double what we paid for it. Excellent value for a fantastic wine.
It’s a 10 from us too!2 comments
