Bordón Gran Reserva Rioja
Elaboration of the Gran Reserva Bordón
Bordón Gran Reserva is a wine made by the Franco-Españolas Rioja winery, which has been creating unique wines since 1890. This gran reserva red wine is presented as a blend of Tempranillo (70%), Graciano (20%) and Mazuelo (10%) varieties. These grapes grow on plots located in the 3 official sub-zones of the Rioja Qualified Denomination of Origin, which are Rioja Oriental, Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa.
Once the grapes have been harvested and the best bunches selected, they are destemmed and squeezed. After this, both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation processes are carried out. The aging of the Bordón Gran Reserva is done in barrels (both new and second year) of white American oak and French oak. This takes up to 30 months in which the wine acquires shades of wood. After this period, the wine rests for another 36 months in the bottle.
Tasting notes of the Bordón Gran Reserva
Its red color is reminiscent of ruby, although with certain nuances and tile reflections. The spicy, leather and tobacco aromas are balanced with soft scents of frosted fruit, which makes it very special and daring. Already in the mouth, it has an elegant entrance, with ripe tannins and an aftertaste that lingers on the palate.
