Bodegas Baigorri, Reserva 2012Regular price €33.00
This is the potent and intense Reserva-level Rioja from Bodegas Baigorri, a landmark tiered winery that commands a panoramic view over the vines of the estate.
The dark livery of the bottle anticipates the contents' rich, enticing aromas of dark fruits and raspberry and strawberry jam, with suggestions of the layers of flavour to come. It's a full-bodied wine that reveals a harmony of flavours on the palate from juicy red fruits through smooth, plummy depths to much darker, deeper hints of cocoa and leather from its eighteen months in new oak.
This balance of freshness and intensity makes Baigorri Reserva an obvious choice for red meat dishes, but its finesse means that it wouldn't overpower lighter meals, and it might do very well with a ratatouille or rich vegetable recipes too.
