Review

Only the finest wines of the Azpilicueta brand bear the name of Félix Azpilicueta. A pioneer as well as wine grower and businessman, Don Félix Azpilicueta began in 1881 with a small winery in which he embodied all the knowledge acquired in Bordeaux. Today, considered one of the most important people in the history of Rioja wine, his name is an absolute guarantee of quality and elegance.

The Colección Privada white has a delicate and shy facet, which matches to perfection a very elegant nose, dominated by notes of pastries, white flowers and aniseed. It grows by the second, revealing with each inhalation delightful spicy aromas (vanilla and white pepper), melted butter, citrus fruits... On the palate, it becomes complicated and surprises us by showing itself rather more blatant than on the nose. It's fresh and complex, with a glyceric mouthfeel and thrilling acidity. Rounded, vivid and elegant, above all else, very elegant. It caresses the tongue and the inside of the mouth leaving a trail of fine salinity, supple tannins and citrus freshness. Its aroma is reluctant to leave us, inviting another sip almost instantly.

Un blanc incroyable

Un vin blanc presque au-delà d’un condrieu. Très structuré long en bouche et aussi complexe.En un mot, ce vin fait rêver
