With five Golds, this is a stellar white Rioja. It’s the flagship of Altos, a cellar founded in 2006 by winemaker Jean-Marc Sauboua, and already with 125 Golds. Old-vine Viura and Chardonnay, fermented in barrel, this is intense, citrusy and toasty.

Haut-Brion trained Jean-Marc Sauboua was born and raised in Bordeaux, but is also half Spanish. For many years he’s made wine for us all over the world, Bordeaux in particular, but when he decided to start a project of his own, Rioja was his only thought. And only the very highest parts of the appellation – indeed, no vineyards in the region are higher than his. Right from the start Jean-Marc’s aim was to make a Grand Cru style of Rioja, wines full of fruit with balanced oak. Pigeage (pron. peajarge), two reds and one white, are his flagship wines and in just ten vintages have won over 100 Golds. This 2019 alone has five. Old-vine Viura and high-grown Chardonnay, fermented in French oak, this is intensely citrusy with toasty oak complexity.
