Sammlerbox: Gran Reserva 904 Jahrgangs-Trilogie


Lobenberg: Drei der größten Jahrgänge der legendären Gran Reserva 904 von einem der renommiertesten, historischen Erzeuger der Rioja. La Rioja Alta hat die vorzüglichen Jahrgänge 2007, 2009 und 2010 in dieser Sammlerkiste vereint.Die Gran Reserva 904 ist der klassische Vertreter eines großen Rioja. Die Trauben stammen aus den alten Rebstöcken der niedrigen Lagen. Mittleres, tiefen Ziegelrot. Intensiv in der Nase, zarte reife Pflaumen und Rosinen. Ein paar kandierte Früchte begleiten Zimt, Nelken und Schokolade. Im Hintergrund verstecken sich Nuancen von Minze. Ausgewogen am Gaumen überrascht er mit schier unglaublich seidigen Tanninen. Die 4-jährige Fassreife und die anschließende Reifung in der Flasche polieren den Wein auf Hochglanz. Die Gran Reserva 904 hallt lange nach… 1 Minute, 2 Minuten… die Frucht bleibt. Ein Langläufer mit Glanz. 95-97/100


Suckling über: Sammlerbox: Gran Reserva 904 Jahrgangs-Trilogie

-- Suckling: Suckling zu 2007: Wonderful purity of fruit with a strawberry, currant and plum character. Full and velvety body with ultra-fine tannins and a delicious fresh and fruity finish. Classic Rioja style. Que lindo! Drink now. 97/100Suckling zu 2009: This is a driven and super tight Gran Reserva with dark berries and hints of spice and cedar. A spicy red-pepper undertone and some dried flowers. Full to medium body, integrated tannins and a superb finish. A great wine. Available in September 2018. A wine for the cellar, but why wait? 97/100Suckling zu 2010: Fresh blueberries and brambleberries take center stage, which is striking for a wine of this age. There are also lots of roasted herbs, such as sage, not to mention floral elements, including lavender and dried violets. Then come cedar, sandalwood and tar. The tannins are incredibly round and soft, without the slightest hint of anything dry. This is among the most elegant of Riojas, where the acidity is wonderfully pronounced and cuts right through any touch of dried fruit. Long and powerful, yet subtle on the finish. Drink now, or hold for a very long time. 98/100


Tim Atkin über: Sammlerbox: Gran Reserva 904 Jahrgangs-Trilogie

-- Tim Atkin: Tim Atkin zu 2009: Re ecting the excellence of the vintage, as well as its power, this is the latest in a superb run of 904 Gran Reservas. Combining Tempranillo with 10% Graciano for added backbone and grip, it’s a wine that is (as ever) supremely drinkable on release, but will reward further cellaring. Spicy, aromatic and enticing, with the vanilla sweetness of American oak, savoury tannins and a core of stylish, balsamic-edged fruit. Traditional Rioja with a modern accent. 96/100Tim Atkin zu 2010: A step up on the memorable 2009, this shows just how special the 2010 vintage was. Marrying fruit from Briñas, Villalba and Rodezno, it's a perfectly judged marriage of Tempranillo with 10% Graciano. Savoury wild herb notes segue into a palate that's focused, balanced and graceful with the concentration and backbone to age. 97/100


Parker über: Sammlerbox: Gran Reserva 904 Jahrgangs-Trilogie

-- Parker: Parker zu 2007: If Viña Ardanza seems to be going fast, the Gran Reserva 904 is even faster and we're now on the 2007 Gran Reserva 904. This wants to be the classic Gran Reserva--polished, silky and elegant, with aging potential. It is a blend of Tempranillo with 10% Mazuelo aged for four years in well-seasoned American oak barrels, with eight manual rackings. I found that the freshness of the vintage and its relatively young age gave the wine a youngish character that I loved, combining developed notes of meat, spices, leather and balsam with almost cherry-like aromas. The palate feels balanced and elegant, with fine-grained and fully resolved tannins and great acidity. This vintage of 904 surprised me! 150,000 bottles produced. 95/100Parker zu 2010: It seems like yesterday when the superb 2001 was released, and now I already have the 2010 Gran Reserva 904 in my glass. It has to be among the greatest modern time vintages of this mythical bottling, where they aim for a wine that has a long aging potential. This is mostly Tempranillo with 10% Graciano and 13.5% alcohol, and it matured in fourth-used American oak barrels for four years, during which time the wine was racked every six months. It has the combination of elegance and power only the best vintages are capable of, with the classical aromas, great detail and nuance, very good balance and persistence. They consider 2010 among the best years of this century, and maybe future generations will talk about 2010 like we talk about the great classical vintages of yesterday today. The palate is polished but shows plenty of energy and tension, the tannins are very fine and elegant, and the flavors are focused and clean. This has to be one of the greatest wines from the vintage. A legend in the making. 150,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2015. 96+/100
