CONDE VALDEMAR GRAN RESERVA
When the passion for innovation is combined with respect for tradition, Conde Valdemar is born, producing wines that showcase the virtues of this land: the land of the Rioja.
Combining the ability to look to the future with keeping their history alive, to create, among others, the first barrel fermented white in Spain, Conde Valdemar Finca Alto Cantabria, or the first barrel-aged varietal Garnacha.
True to their most traditional and timeless line. Wines that persist in time, that blend the clear and clean fruit with a balanced power and structure, while underscoring the freshness and subtlety characteristic of this area.
The great jewel of the winery. The elegance of the Tempranillo grape is very well displayed in this rounded, tasty wine rich in aromas and nuances. Bodegas Valdemar is one of the most prestigious wineries and with more history in making Grandes Reservas of Rioja.
It has a bright red cherry colour. It is expressive with spicy notes and a touch of creamy oak. Very elegant, complex nose. It is round and full-flavoured in mouth, tasty and balanced. The finish is long, lingering and silky.
This wine matches perfectly with red meat, stews and roasted food as well as game. Particularly suited for cold meats and dry cheeses.

I was lucky enough to select this wine for a business dinner with a few of my customers from the US. All - without exception - immediately expressed just how good the wine was. Full bodied but very smooth with that classic Rioja blend. We had 3 bottles and I then ordered 6 bottles the very next day.

In spendy (for a brit, very) Dublin for a celebration roast lamb dinner, this was a doozy of a wine for €20. Its usual €35 would be one to think twice about, but for a fiver more than the over-priced Container Crud from Spain, its depth and complexity when left to breathe for an hour turned it into a wine that dear old Flossie richly deserved -slow cooked, natch.

Enjoyed very much though couldn't help thinking that the 2008 Conde Valdemar Gran Reserva was not as good as the 2008 Conde Valdemar Reserva.
