It is immensely rare to fall across a parcel of 50 year old Reserva Rioja. Tasting a bottle, our Buyer Beth could tell it had been kept it perfect cellar conditions. The wine still has its original cork, which may well crumble. That is the norm for fine wines of this maturity. It is fine to push it into the wine - it won't spoil the flavour. This is a gorgeously complex, long flavoured Rioja. It's showing clear evolution – mature strawberry fruit, delicate spice, but still remarkable freshness for its half century years. This wine needs no time to breathe. It will change in the glass and reveal all sorts of earthy, leafy layers of flavour, along with its nuances of mature red berry fruit. Savour with meaty fish or game as a foil.
