Heiner Lobenberg über:
Reserva 2017


Lobenberg: Unerhört feiner Wein im Stil der historischen Weine der Rioja. Blumig, nussig vom Holz, dunkle Beeren und cremige, feine Tannine. Grandioser, feiner Trinkfluss. Archetypisch Rioja, frisch und geschmeidig und dochz fern der Moderne. Murrieta, Ygay, Rioja Alta und Tondonia sin die besten Repräsentanten dieser guten alten Zeit. Sooooo lecker. 94/100


Suckling über: Reserva

-- Suckling: Beautifully perfumed with dried flowers, walnuts and violets to the dark berries on the nose. Full-bodied, yet very tight and refined with creamy, chewy tannins that are polished and poised. A lively, finely crafted red. Nice to drink now, but shows excellent potential for the future. 95/100


Decanter über: Reserva

-- Decanter: A great classic, with a unique Rioja character, bursting with chewy red fruits, counterpointed by minerality. Reconciling power and finesse, pleasure and style. Warm and intense. Benchmark for wines of style, high-end brands. Leaves a vibrant memory. 94/100


Tim Atkin über: Reserva

-- Tim Atkin: The Murrieta estate escaped the frosts in 2017, so there was no reduction in yields. This classic, well-balanced Reserva is a marriage of Tempranillo with 18% Graciano, Mazuelo and Garnacha, aged in 30% new American oak. Complex, concentrated and built to age in bottle, it has cassis, woodsmoke and blackberry notes, impressive structure and subtle, spicy wood. 94/100


Parker über: Reserva

-- Parker: The red 2017 Rioja Reserva is their flagship wine, of which they produce 900,000 bottles exclusively from grapes from their 300 hectares of estate vineyards. It's a blend of 83% Tempranillo, 9% Graciano, 6% Mazuelo (Cariñena) and 2% Garnacha and has the character of the vintage, ripe and warm but without excess. The varieties fermented separately, even different plots fermented separately, and they also aged in barrel on their own. The blend is done at the end, after 20 months in American oak barrels. 2017 was a challenging year that they still consider a better vintage than 2018, as they see more concentration and power. The wine is quite lactic and creamy, still showing very young. It does feel undeveloped and in need of some time in bottle. The wine has concentration and clout, and I always consider it an ultimate example of an updated classical Reserva from Rioja. 2017 was the earliest harvest (started and finished in September), a warm and dry year when the Ygay estate miraculously escaped the terrible frost that decimated most of Europe. The challenge for this wine was to contain the ripeness and power, and they have done it. This will be released in spring 2021, so it should be a lot more integrated by then. This is always a sure value. Volumes are lower this year. 93/100


Penin über: Reserva

-- Penin: Dunkles Kirschrot, granatroter Saum. In der Nase reifes Obst, Früchtekonfit, Noten von Tischlerei, Tabak und süße Gewürze. Im Mund würzig, reife Tannine und lang. 93/100
