Review:

A flagship for quality in the Rioja area (although it left the Rioja appellation in 2015), Artadi is one of the key wineries to understand the huge transformation Spanish winemaking has undertaken. Their pioneering project gives utmost importance to the age of the vines and the terroir, moves on from traditional crianza indicators, and produces wines plot by plot. The result — a catalogue of top quality wines affordable for all wine-lovers. Without doubt, this is an essential winery in the history of Spanish wine.

A clear example of this is the Artadi La Poza de Ballesteros wine, one of the best parcel wines (made from unique plots) from Juan Carlos López de Lacalle's winery. It is made with carefully selected Tempranillo grapes from the La Poza de Ballesteros vineyard located on a gentle hillside of poor, deep and compact soils, grown using environmentally-friendly organic agriculture methods. Twelve months ageing in new French oak barrels results in an enveloping red wine which, as the Artadi winemakers say, offers us the rough expressiveness which characterizes wines from this plot. A wine with volume and clear tones of very ripe and seasoned fruit, it delights the drinker with wide, round and dense tannins and elaborate and mature retronasal aromas and aftertaste.

Summary of Juan Carlos López de Lacalle's evaluation of the 2015 vintage

The 2015 vintage year began its cycle with a cold and rainy winter, with snow present and low temperatures that enabled the accumulation of important water reserves. Some sporadic rain showers in spring and during the summer, accompanied by high temperatures, brought on very rapid plant growth, which gave rise to an abundance of foliage; in the month of June, rainfall lasting for six days caused problems with flowering. During the months of August and September, the temperatures were rather lower than average, by two degrees in fact, and rain was recorded yet again in September. Broadly speaking, these were the weather conditions of a year which has resulted in wines that express the sweetness of an early onset of maturity and the freshness of a slow ripeness at the end of the cycle. The 2015 wines are well defined, clear and transparent chromatically, bright cherry-red in colour and full of light, intense aromas of red fruit on the nose, notes of liquorice, aniseed and fresh citrus fruits. Wines that are powerful yet subtle, with a graceful texture, sweet but firm tannins and considerable persistence on the palate. Crystal clear, delicate and elegant wines.

Like every Arcadi red I've tasted it had a wonderful freshness and optimum acidity, combined with a powerful somewhat fleshy mouthfeel with a beautiful creamy and spicy finish.

Un vino bien trabajado y, sin perder la esencia de la región, muy amable al paladar. Se trata de un Rioja muy bien elaborado y que proporciona una gran experiencia. Aunque no suelo consumir vinos de la Rioja, por una cuestión de preferencias, puedo decir que la Poza de Artadi se ha convertido en una excepción.

Bodegas Artadi is, in fact, the name by which the Cosecheros Alaveses cooperative is known, a well-orchestrated project that started up in 1985, in which several vine-growing associates became involved to show that cosechero (young red) wine could also prove to be great wine. They were successful, with their cosecheros...
