Review

The arrival of "la Compañía" in La Rioja, along with Telmo’s own working knowledge gained at Remelluri, his family’s highly reputable winery, heralded wines that emerged in the Bordeaux style: the "Médoc Alavés". LZ is from vineyards in the Rioja Alavesa that has a particular climate, where Mediterranean weather conditions merge with the purer Atlantic elements. Junior in rank to Lanzaga, this is an unpretentious, decent wine made along simple lines that spends a few months ageing in vats and has no contact with wood.

Contrary to the new vintage wines from Rioja, very tart-tasting and extremely light (to such an extent that some people call them diluted), LZ displays very lively tonality, splendid acidity and moves lightly in the glass. On swirling the glass, slight traces of fermentation and reduction can be detected, wonderfully accompanied by the delightful lactic aroma and that of tart strawberry syrup, giving way after a bit of aeration to earthy aromas of black pepper and green peppers. Showing a sharp edge, LZ comes over as dynamic and powerful; any sharpness can be acknowledged as emanating from the earthy-spicy factor. Marvellous, with a long, fresh-tasting finish, that leaves a really clean feel. A lot of work for just an unpretentious wine!

  • Optimum serving temperature:Between 14ºC and 16ºC

A pleasurable moment

I generally really enjoy the wines from Telmo Rodríguez, this included. I wanted to try a young one and was not disappointed. I will spend a little more on my next order and get the Lanzaga 2010.

Compañía de Vinos de Telmo Rodríguez

A strong tradition of vine-growing, formal training in Bordeaux and great passion for wine might broadly define this “company” set up by Telmo Rodríguez (with experience, apart from in several Bordeaux châteaux, in the family-owned winery at Remelluri) and Pablo Eguzkiza (a pupil of Jean Claude Berrouet, at such famous wineries as Petrus, and with experience in La Rioja at Barón de Oña and at Remelluri too). Their joint objective is to work with vineyards in a variety of regi...
