Review

The Gran Reserva of the range is only made in excellent or very good vintage years, with this coupage made from 85% Tempranillo, 15% Graciano and Garnacha Tinta. The lengthy time the wine has spent ageing and maturing enhances both fruit and freshness, as well as enriching the wine with a singular complexity.

A ruby-red colour of great intensity, the wine releases a profusion of ripe woodland berry fruit aromas on the nose, complemented by vanilla and light roasted notes. There is plenty of fullness on the palate which is meaty and fresh, accompanied by fine tannins which highlight its structure and complexity. Its elegance and intense flavours contribute to making this a most pleasurable wine.

Aged for 26 months in French oak barrels. Subsequent repose in bottle for at least a further 3 years.

Full of Floyd

I was tempted to watch a re run of Floyd on Spain and his obvious pleasure to quaff a slurp of Marques de Caseres Reserva which we had bought 3 xmases ago. Superb, elegant and on our table for xmas lunch. Very very highly rated. Vinissimus orders are expertly packed and delivered on time , every time

Pas mal

S'accordera bien avec une grillade et fromages affines, une robe rubis, Cerise et intense au nez complexe, fuit noir, Cacao et cedre. En bouche ce vin est structure, fuite aux tanins murs et savoureux

Ottimo vino

Tra i migliori vini dalla Rioja Spagna. Conosco la varietà esistente, pero il rapporto qualità prezzo e se pere suggestivo, in questo caso, il rapporto per me va bene.

savoureux

J'apprecie ce vin par sa saveur velouté en bouche.Il va avec les viandes rouges. N'aimant pas les vins à tanin elevé,les marques de caceres me conviennent parfaitement

excelente para carnes

Un vino excelente para acompañar los segundos platos, especialmente si se trata de carnes. Siempre es necesario abrir una nueva botella cuando se acerca la sobremesa.

Marqués de Cáceres

Enrique Forner founded the company Marqués de Cáceres Unión Vitivinícola in 1970, with its name granted by an old family friend who was descended from the original 18th Century marquis. Many of the area’s best vine growers and their vineyards were incorporated into this project, and years later most still remain, meaning that this bodega controls around 1,200 hectares locally, thanks to the strong links forged back then.
