Best In Show, Decanter World Wine Awards – 97 Points
This dark, relatively tight-knit Rioja proves that the Gran Reserva category doesn’t just indicate the supremely well-aged, relaxed and reposeful style of Rioja, but can also serve to draw drinkers’ attention to outstanding wines of density and tenacity which still have a way to run along their potential ageing trajectories. Look out for dark, urgent fruits here sweetened and back-lit by cunningly angled oak, with intense, deep, fresh and searching flavours in which the 10% of Graciano seems to be working overtime. A Rioja of innate drama. Drink 2019-2028.
El Coto’s philosophy:
El Coto is the favorite Rioja wine. The premier choice, the one that never fails. But above all, el Coto de Rioja is a wine that is within everyone’s reach. Because of its excellent quality/price ratio, its international distribution and because since our very beginning that has been our primary concern.
Besides excellence and the highest quality, the passion with which we do our work every day is an endeavor to be able to offer our wines to the greatest possible number of people. It’s as simple as that.
