We have a few bottles of 1970 Rioja from Bodegas Franco-Españolas. This old-school winery was established in 1890 and is a historic pillar in the world of Spanish winemaking. Situated in the heart of the Rioja region, the winery boasts a rich heritage of over a century, with a collection of very old vines and cellars holding a backlog of older vintages. With vineyards in Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa, and Rioja Oriental, the Bodega is able to capture every crucial aspect of Rioja and blend them together. While the Bodegas Franco-Españolas carefully tends to a diverse range of grape varieties, this wine has historically been 100% Tempranillo. The winemaking approach is deeply rooted in tradition, making for structured and classic wines that do very well with time in the bottle. 1970 was an excellent vintage for Rioja, with many producers making very fine examples and a good percentage being deemed good enough for Gran Reserva. This bottle is a special selection of fruit. These are in great condition (pictured above), and fantastic buys for older Rioja with some nice CellarTracker Community notes with a score of 92.1. Something to enjoy now: we have a limited amount available, which are some of the only bottles remaining in the world.
