R. López de Heredia Viña Bosconia Gran Reserva 2001
Wine Advocate – “The grapes ripened properly and thoroughly, and the wine has great balance for a long aging in bottle. This is 80% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacha and the rest Graciano and Mazuelo that fermented in their 153-year-old oak vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in used barrels for 10 years. It has 13% alcohol, a pH of 3.4 and 6.5 grams of acidity (tartaric). As the wine sat in the glass (even overnight), it became finer and subtler. 5,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2012. Drink: 2022-2032” (96 Pts)
Tim Atkin – ” Often tasted last in a line up of López de Heredia reds because it comes from a slightly warmer site, R. López de Heredia Viña Bosconia Gran Reserva 2001 is a superb, mature cuvée of Tempranillo with 20% Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo that shows the balance and complexity of a great Rioja vintage. Savoury, mature and well structured with notes of earth, green herbs and tobacco and caressing red fruit sweetness. 2021-30.” (96 Pts)
James Suckling – “Gorgeous, ripe aromas and flavors of dried berries, sultanas, tobacco, cigar tobacco and Spanish cedar. Full-bodied, dense and layered with wonderful fruit and complexity for such a late-released wine. Drink or hold.” (96 Pts)
