Notes from De Maison Selections:
"Remelluri is one of the world’s most timeless and iconic wine-producing landscapes. Remelluri Reserva is the original wine from Granja Nuestra Señora de Remelluri, sourced from their most important vineyards consisting of 148 plots on 25 sites of the property. Only indigenous varieties are used, planted from 1918 until today, averaging 40 years old. The blend consists primarily of goblet-trained tempranillo, garnacha, and graciano varieties with an average yield of 27hl/ha—organic farming, low intervention, unfiltered, and minimal sulfur at bottling.
This 2008 Reserva is a direct, authentic cellar release of guaranteed provenance, stored under optimal conditions at Remelluri in Labastida, Rioja, until refrigerated shipment to the US in the summer of 2022. It was selected by Remelluri owner and winemaker Telmo Rodríguez for the exceptional nature of the vintage and beautiful evolution of the wine, offering a fully-cellared Reserva expression from Remelluri to the market. While the 2008 vintage has recently entered its ideal drinking window, it will undoubtedly repay additional cellar time, offering enjoyment for a decade or more. De Maison Selections verifies refrigerated shipping and storage conditions throughout the wine’s journey to local merchants. Proper temperature and shipping conditions are essential factors in the enjoyment of well-cellared wines. The 2008 Remelluri Reserva cellar release is extremely limited in quantity."
