Into neck

95 Points CellarTracker

Se dice que estos GR 904 tienen, en general, un desarrollo de unos 20 años más otros 20 de mantenimiento. Esta botella sigue perfectamente la regla, a sus 28 años es evidente que
ha llegado a su cima y que le queda aún buen trecho para aguantar en buenas condiciones.
Se decantó durante tres horas con filtrado ya que estos vinos presentan siempre mucho poso y además del tapón salió hecho migas. Presenta un color picota de capa baja muy atejado en el borde. Aromas terciarios, cuero muy limpio, tierra, tabaco de cigarro puro habano, especies orientales y en el centro del aroma se encuentra sutil fruta negra acompañada de melocotón y albaricoque muy maduros. La boca es suavísima con taninos perfectamente integrados, y con la acidez suficiente para permitirle completar su ciclo, la boca es, además, profunda y de cuerpo ancho, (característica específica de estos GR de LRA), y se encuentran preciosas y amplias sensaciones frutales y su final es correctamente largo. 2/13/2022

It is said that these GR 904 have, in general, a development of about 20 years plus another 20 of maintenance. This bottle perfectly follows the rule, at 28 years old it is evident that
has reached its peak and still has a long way to go to endure in good conditions.
It was decanted for three hours with filtration since these wines always have a lot of sediment and in addition to the cork it came out in crumbs. It has a low layer cherry color that is very narrow on the edge. Tertiary aromas, very clean leather, earth, pure Havana cigar tobacco, oriental spices and in the center of the aroma there is subtle black fruit accompanied by very ripe peach and apricot. The palate is very soft with perfectly integrated tannins, and with enough acidity to allow it to complete its cycle. The palate is also deep and wide-bodied (a specific characteristic of these GR from LRA), and there are beautiful and broad fruit sensations. and its ending is appropriately long. 2/13/2022
