Decanter 100 points for the historic Marqués de Riscal 1895 vintage


The quality of the red wines from Marquésde Riscal and their extraordinary capacity for cellaring have been recognised by the British magazine Decanter with the awarding of 100 points to Marqués de Riscal 1895

The tasting of the Marqués de Riscal 1895 was made by Pedro Ballesteros, the renowned Master of Wine, and in his review for Decanter he says: 

If the wine were younger it would still be perfect; at 125 years old of age, it is beyond any praise. Deep bright garnet colour, intense and precise floral and dry herbs aromas, a hint of candied fruits, slightly tarry, with a hint of fungi. Powerful, unbelievable depth. Magic in its intensity and presence. An unforgettable experience. No way to know how long the wine stayed maturing in barrel – I assume four years.

Bottles of Marqués de Riscal 1895 are not for sale and remain in the Bottle Cellar for old vintages, a space set aside in the old Marqués de Riscal bodega to store the largest collection of old wines in the world, with vintages going back to 1862 and the first wines to be bottled by the company.
