Wine bought from a private collection in Rioja in 2017.
Stored in private cellar up to today.
Extremely good storage condition. Fully mature and therefore drinking well now, or cellar for next 25-30 years.
Vintage 1964 is unanimously considered as the best vintage of the 20th century in Rioja. Martínez Lacuesta Reserva Especial was the top wine of the winery and specially bottled for the Spanish Royal House for decades.
Wine vinified and fermented for 24 months in wooden vats from the founding time of the winery (1895). Poured to cask and aged for at least 8 years in cask. Bottled in 1975.
97/100 Cellartracker: "A truly spectacular wine. Nose was a perfect combination of rustic earth, dried leaves and florals, with perfectly ripe, cool red fruit. A nose you could smell forever. The palate was equally seductive. Layers of florals, cranberry, earth, and fallen leaves. Wonderful stuff, and very Burgundian in its balance and complexity".
