Outstanding Rioja crianza
El Puntido surprises me allways and its great rioja exceptional qpr gem. I have drink vintages 2004,2011 and this 2012 and all of them are super quality wines.Dark berries, plums, liguorice, levander and tobacco on nose. Great vanilla oak. Good acidity and smooth, silky tannins on palate with blackberries. Good oldfashiones finish. Fullbodies and complexity wine. Excellent texture. No need to long decanding. .

One really need to try the wines of this great domain.

La mineralidad de la Rioja
Vino que transmite fielmente el viñedo del que proviene. Buena acidez con taninos muy bien integrados y marcada mineralidad. Post gusto persistente.

The Eguren family has historical connections with wine-making dating back to 1870 and now five generations have been intrinsically involved with vine cultivation in La Rioja. Expert knowledge has been accrued then passed on, with technological advances in production warmly accepted but without totally superseding traditional ideas that are based on an overriding respect for the soil and the vine. This is a contemporary-styled winery in the medieval town of Laguardia, and home...
