Marques de Riscal Baron de Chirel Rioja Reserva

Home Information Map Review

Barón de Chirel wine first appeared in 1986 as the result of experimental production using a selection of grapes from very old vines, between 80 and 110 years’ old, with a very low yield and high quality. From the results of these trials would appear what we could say was the precursor of the so-called “new era” of Rioja wines. This wine is produced on a very limited scale and only in the best vintage years, in which the character of the vineyard, the soil and the variety are expressed as part of a single, harmonious whole. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 26ºC and the maceration period does not exceed 12 days. The malolactic fermentation takes place in small wooden vats with a capacity of 20,000 litres and the wine is then aged for 20 months in Bordeauxstyle barrels made of French oak. Finally, the wine spends a minimum time of a year rounding off in the bottle before being released for sale.
