2011 vintage rated 'excellent'

 

After tasting nearly 4,000 samples of Rioja, a panel of experts have awarded the 2011 vintage one of the best scores of the last 30 years, officially rating it as ‘excellent’ – a score given to just eight vintages since 1981.

Rioja wine is famed for its long ageing, so some of the best Gran Reserva styles from this excellent vintage won't hit shelves until at least 2016, when they will be perfectly aged and ready to drink. Though if you can resist the temptation of drinking them sooner, some of the best wines will continue to improve for ten years or more!
