Summary of Juan Carlos López de Lacalle's evaluation of the 2015 vintage
The 2015 vintage year began its cycle with a cold and rainy winter, with snow present and low temperatures that enabled the accumulation of important water reserves. Some sporadic rain showers in spring and during the summer, accompanied by high temperatures, brought on very rapid plant growth, which gave rise to an abundance of foliage; in the month of June, rainfall lasting for six days caused problems with flowering. During the months of August and September, the temperatures were rather lower than average, by two degrees in fact, and rain was recorded yet again in September. Broadly speaking, these were the weather conditions of a year which has resulted in wines that express the sweetness of an early onset of maturity and the freshness of a slow ripeness at the end of the cycle. The 2015 wines are well defined, clear and transparent chromatically, bright cherry-red in colour and full of light, intense aromas of red fruit on the nose, notes of liquorice, aniseed and fresh citrus fruits. Wines that are powerful yet subtle, with a graceful texture, sweet but firm tannins and considerable persistence on the palate. Crystal clear, delicate and elegant wines.

Bodegas Artadi is, in fact, the name by which the Cosecheros Alaveses cooperative is known, a well-orchestrated project that started up in 1985, in which several vine-growing associates became involved to show that cosechero (young red) wine could also prove to be great wine. They were successful, with their cosecheros and all the other wines they have added to their catalogue. During the 1990s, under the direction of Juan Carlos López de Lacalle, the winery saw its prestige...
