Rare Rioja – Great vintages, fine bodegas, a perfect opportunity

As a buyer, sometimes one comes across interesting parcels like this that make one’s life a little more exciting than normal; a large quantity of mature Rioja exclusively from great vintages and top bodegas.

904 Rioja Alta Gran Reserv, Gomez Cruzado Gran Reserva, Monte Real Reserva, Viña Tondonia Gran Reserva, Viña Tondonia Reserva, Baron de Chirel Reserva, Marques de Vargas Reserva Especial, Roda I ReservaThis stock has been acquired by a man known only as ‘Fernando’, who ran a very successful catering company supplying high society weddings and corporate functions with some of the best wines that Spain has to offer. Fernando is now retired and has wound up his business. Fortunately (for us) inventory control wasn’t one of his strong points and he has been left with a large volume of wine, for which he has sought a single buyer. This is where we came in. An equivalent parcel from Bordeaux or Burgundy is almost unthinkable, especially at these prices!

Opportunities like this don’t come along very often, so we are pleased to be able to offer five rare and exciting older vintages from some of the most lauded bodegas in the region, as well as three wines from the unmissable 2001 vintage. We will be offering the wines in early September, make sure to watch out for the offer on here or @laywheeler, please do RSS us to keep up with offers. Hasta pronto?
