Review:

Chivite's Colección 125 Reserva is a wine abounding in history, a great wine and a great classic. Classic due to its perpetuity in time, a wine which relates the history of a family laying claim to eleven generations dedicated to the land and vine; classic too in its style, because, although adapted to new market demands and therefore fruity and lively, it is defined by its elegance, seriousness and nobility.

They are true craftsmen at Chivite and their Colección 125 range is the one that best demonstrates their expertise, limited production wines which express the character of their finest vineyards with the individual characteristics of each harvest. With the Reserva they offer us not only a very authentic Tempranillo, with its typical blueberry aromas, but also a Tempranillo made in the vineyard, permeated with the natural environment surrounding it. To sum up, this is a very fresh wine, mature, complex and particularly earthy and profound.

The grapes used to make it are solely of the Tempranillo variety and originate from parcels on the Finca Granja de Legardeta estate. Here, the vineyards enjoy an Atlantic climate, which leaves its mark on the wine with that tremendous freshness.

As regards colour, it's very vivid and bright, a dark ruby-red, of medium depth. On the nose, it's really fresh, very alive and expressive, fruity, with some sweet notes, damp ones too but especially hints of dry earth..., a great wealth of nuances in spectacular and very appealing balance. Decant it or open it up an hour beforehand, and it will thank you and reward you with its great complexity. After a short while, the woodland sensations will waken up, with forest vegetation, juniper and cedar wood, spicy pepper notes, and also orange peel. On the palate, its attack is meaty, dense, with powerful yet pleasant tannins, a dry touch but not drying, again that earthy feel, and excellent acidity; this wine has a long life ahead of it.

A noble wine, and very well defined, which honours one of Navarra's most emblematic wineries.

NOTE: Chivite was founded as a winery in 1647 and boasts one of Spain's longest-running dynasties. The Colección 125 range was released onto the market in 1985 in commemoration of 125 years since Chivite's first exportation, in 1860.
