Heiner Lobenberg über:
Lindes de Remelluri 2009


Lobenberg: Aus einigen 'jüngeren Weinbergen' (40 Jahre alt) der Granja Remelluri und aus alten Reben von Freunden aus San Vicente und Labastida. Ein reiner Biowein, der in den nächsten Jahren dann auch zertifiziert wird. Die Hauptsorte Tempranillo ist ergänzt um etwas Grenache und Graciano, auch 5% weiße Viura für die Finesse. Ausbau in amerikanischer und französischer Eiche. Ein schöner Eichentouch, angenehm weich und fruchtig, Brombeere, Maulbeere und Vanille. Im Mund sehr trinkig, angenehm weich, Maulbeere und Schlehe, ein Hauch Cassis und Brombeere mit Schoko und etwas Lakritze, ein Hauch Eukalyptus und eine Spur Minze. Im Finale satte Kirschen. Im positiven Sinne etwas süffiger als der sehr klassische Remelluri. Eine extrem charmante Versuchung, ein berauschend schöner Edelstoff voll feiner und frischer Frucht. 92/100

Parker über: Lindes de Remelluri

-- Parker: The 2009 Lindes de Remelluri is a blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano and Viura from 40-year-old vines that is aged in American and French oak. It has a fresh bouquet of mulberry, sloe, wild hedgerow and just a smudge of licorice. It is well-defined, natural, perhaps rustic?but full of character. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, slightly furry tannins. There is a good weight of dark, quite broody fruit with a well-balanced, blackberry and licorice-tinged finish that has satisfying sense of conservatism. Drink 2013-2019. 90/100 -- Parker: A visit to Rioja could not pass without a stop at Bodegas Remelluri, now managed by the pocket dynamo that is Telmo Rodriguez. I jumped in his muddy 4x4 to inspect his high altitude vines up on the Sierre de Tolono mountains and isolated, uncultivated plots of potentially great terroir that Telmo is keen to exploit in the future (see video). Remelluri is suffused with a sense of place and history, epitomized by the family’s home that is veiled in a monastic aura, every nook and cranny coveting untold stories from the 14th century when the monks from the Tolono monastery founded a sanctuary on this site. Do not be fooled, because now this estate is looking towards the future, through Telmo’s eyes. Though I was impressed by their current releases, the phrase “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet” kept running through my mind, because it will take time for Telmo to implement his winemaking tenets that have been honed through extensive experience both in Spain and abroad. This includes converting Remelluri’s vineyard to biodynamism and re-training the vines away from the trellis (something that Telmo abhors in Rioja). But one thing that he enacted immediately was the bold decision to convene growers from whom Remelluri had sourced fruit for many years, and inform them that this arrangement would cease forthwith. Telmo was effectively putting them out of a job in order to focus upon his own terroir, and to use his own words, “concentrate the personality of Remelluri.” This culling of out-sourced fruit is effective from the 2009 vintage. To compensate these growers, Telmo offered his experience and contacts to assist them in creating their own label. He was encouraged by the positive response and galvanized growers to take responsibility for their own wine; he was essentially sowing the seeds of his own philosophy. So let us begin with this label, because it is well worth seeking out. 90/100

Remelluri – Telmo Rodriguez

Schöner als die Granja Remelluri am Fuße der Sierra de Tolono kann ein Weingut nicht liegen. Das Anwesen befand sich einige Jahrhunderte im Besitz eines Klosters, bevor der Baske Jaime Rodriguez Salis das Gut 1968 erwarb.
