MON­TE­CILLO SE­LEC­CION ES­PE­CIAL GRAN RESERVA 2001

Epicure - - CELLAR CHOICE -

Recog­nised as Best of Show Rioja Gran Reserva as well as win­ning a Gold Medal at the Mun­dus Vini In­ter­na­tional Com­pe­ti­tion 2017, this 2001 is liv­ing up to its early po­ten­tial. At 13.5%, the 100% Tem­pranillo has spent min­i­mum 10 years in bot­tle age­ing, and its colour is still deep cherry with in­tense brick red high­lights. Clas­si­cally styled, it brings out in­trigu­ing notes of root beer, ripe berry, prune and smoked meat com­plex­ity from the nose to the palate, fin­ish­ing el­e­gantly with licorice bright­ness. Drink now or hold an­other five years. $128 from Cer­tain Cel­lars
