Review

In 1904, Don Alfredo Ardanza, one of the founders of the initial enterprise and owner of Bodegas Ardanza, proposed the union of both companies. To celebrate this, a very special wine was launched onto the market which was called Reserva 1904 then, but it would become the precursor of the current Gran Reserva 904, probably the winery's best.

A wine with an excellent quality-price ratio, a Tempranillo and Graciano coupage, with four years of ageing in American oak. A wine of great balance, very seductive, another great classic only produced in the best vintage years.

Special wine

Full of flavor. Light on vanilla. Strong with dark fruits. Ordered this many times and competes well with Bordeaux.

Great wine!

This is a great wine from a great Rioja wine year. Its balance in taste, ellagance and medium body is perfect. Only its price is keeping me away from drinking this every week...!

Le Rioja Alta Gran reserva 904 est un vin magnifique avec un bouquet intense de fruits noirs. En bouche, il est équilibré et long. Quel bonheur !

Wine from La Rioja Alta

La Rioja Alta

La Rioja Alta is one of Rioja's historic wineries, creator of such emblematic brands as Viña Ardanza, Viña Arana, Viña Alberdi, Gran Reserva 890 and Gran Reserva 940. All of their wines are excellent and clearly exemplify what it means to be a great Rioja classic these days, in present times. Their wines are elegant, complex and sophisticated like those of the past, but with more body, colour and robustness, wines adapted to the gastronomical demands of today. In short, great...
