Review

A great Rioja and the winery’s emblem.

With well-defined ageing and a marked personality, 200 Monges pays homage to the history of the village of Albelda de Iregua and its San Martín Monastery, nowadays in ruins, where years ago the Vigilian Codex was written, a genuine gem of early medieval literature which alludes to the existence of at least 200 monks.

NOTE: Decanting is advised about 30-45 minutes beforehand to ensure enjoyment of all its aromatic potential.

Matured for at least 24 months in new French and American oak barrels. Subsequently rests in bottle for 15 months.

Sehr guter Rioja

Sehr schöner Rioja, Reserva. Typisch im Geschmack für Rioja, vollmundig und ausgewogen. Jetzt im trinkreifen Alter. Vom Preis- Leistungsverhältnis etwas unterhalb Rioja Alta Gran Reserva, dafür aber weniger Säure und geschmeidiger.

Great Rioja

Well balanced and complex old style rioja, multi layers, cherry, tobacco, oaky nuances are well integrated. On a start of the drinking window.
