Rioja 10 x 10 Blind Tasting

Top Tasters track down our Top 100

On Wednesday 3rd of August, Wines from Rioja gathered fourteen of the UK’s leading wine experts to blind taste hundreds of Rioja wines and whittle these down to their top 100. Our panel of judges selected wines for 9 different categories : unoaked white; oaked white; Rosado;  Crianza; Reserva’s from 2009 and earlier; Reserva’s from 2010 and later; Gran Reserva; Reds from non-Tempranillo varietals and Generic Wines over £15. Tasting Chairs Tim Atkin MW and Sarah Jane Evans MW, selected a further 10 wines to make up their ‘Chair’s Choices’, a list made up of wines which really excite them and which they feel reflects the best of what Rioja has to offer.

The results of the 10x10 tasting will be revealed in Harpers Wine & Spirit in early autumn and the UK wine trade will be invited to taste the wines at the 10x10 Tasting to be held on 11th October in Banking Hall, London.
