Granja Nuestra Señora de Remelluri is the bodega from the Rioja. This bodega has vineyards in two villages; Labastida Alava and San Vicente de La Sonsierra from the Rioja Alta. Until 2009, the grapes from the two vineyards were used interchangeably, but since 2009, it has been decided to separate these grapes and have produced two new wines called "Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de Labastida" and "Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de San Vicente"
These wines have their own personality but have in common that (rightly) very high reviews, which is quite unique given the price. These wines can compete with the often much more expensive wine from the Rioja. The Guia Penin, Parker and even our own WineLife are full of praise for this new star from the Rioja.
The Lindes de Remelluri Labastida is a beautiful accessible red wine. Fresh fruit, a touch of mountain herbs, minerals, optimal acidity and a very pleasant aftertaste. Silky on entry, then packed with juicy dark fruit complicated by flowers and a hint of blood orange. Powerful, yet supple, with seamless texture, fine-grained tannins and impressive energy on the finish. A new delicious way for Rioja. Great value.
94+/100 Parker for the 2018 year
WINE LIFE - "Super juice. Totally satisfying wine. Exciting on the palate, soft on the long finish. Harmony at its best. Decent filling, woody, velvety and everything in balance. What precision!"
Telmo Rodriguez has been involved with La Granja Remelluri for a few years now. In 1968, Remelluri was purchased by Telmo's father. The property is beautifully situated at an altitude of about 600 meters, about 15 minutes east of Haro. In the early nineties, the young Telmo caused a furore with the wines of Remelluri. A difference of opinion with father Rodriguez made Telmo decide to leave Remelluri at the time. Telmo has now returned and is working with his sister on Remelluri's recovery. The Reserva 2008 (the first harvest under Telmo's responsibility) was recently released and the result is impressive. Remelluri's wines are more classic in style than Telmo's own and are characterized by a high degree of elegance.
