Review

The skill and ability that Tom Puyaubert, of Bodegas Exopto, has to make great little wines that captivate consumers is something we've been aware of for a long time now, and his fantastic Bozeto de Exopto has been enthralling the most demanding of critics too for a good while. Expanding his catalogue, Tom is now offering us a new wine, and this time it's a Tempranillo (80%) predominantly, rounded off with some Graciano (20%), grapes originating from vineyards planted during the years 1980-1990, aged in barrel for 12 months and blessed with a very evocative name: Dominio del Viento ('under the control of the wind', freshness and character assured). A good Rioja, lively on the nose, fruit-driven, elegant, very pure and honest. A great little Rioja that well deserves our attention, and one thing's for certain, one bottle won't be enough.

Da provare assolutamente, ottimo.

Ancora una volta un rioja di 5 anni che non tradisce le aspettative. Un po' lento ad aprirsi, ma dopo 2 ore di decanter è pronto per essere gustato. Grande corpo e rotondità al palato, vino complesso e completo, finale intenso, setoso e pieno di profumi.

Rioja con muy buana relación precio / calidad

Un Rioja clásico sin nada excepcional pero con un buen balance entre fruta y cuerpo. Sin tener un final muy largo, es agradable. En resumen, un vino muy equilibrado o a un precio ajustado.

Bodegas Exopto

Tom Puyaubert arrived in Spain early in the year 2000 from his native Bordeaux, as a sales rep for a famous French cooperage, but coming into daily contact with some of the country’s best winemakers made him feel not only more passionate about wine but also in particular for La Rioja, its vineyards, its wine-growing culture... In 2003 he founded Bodegas Exopto and since then his project has continued to make good progress, producing wines with personality, always using in ...
