The Barón de Chirel wine arises in 1986 as a result of an experimental elaboration from a selection of grapes from very old vines, between 80 and 110 years old, of very low yield and high quality. From the results of this test comes the one that will be a precursor of what could be called, wines from the new era of Rioja. This wine is produced in a very limited way in just the great vintages, where the character of the vineyard, the soil and the variety are expressed, within a harmonious set. From the 1995 harvest, Riscal manually selects the grapes for this great wine with the installation of selection tables. Riscal is the first winery to introduce this system in Spain, marking a milestone in the production of quality red wines.
Barón de Chirel wine ferments at a controlled temperature of 26º, in small-capacity Allier wooden vats. The malolactic fermentation is then carried out in fine-grained Allier oak barrels. The aging will last between 18 and 24 months, depending on the characteristics of each vintage. Once this is finished, the wine is bottled, passing a refining period of not less than 2 years before going on the market.
Wine of a dark cherry color, alive, with hardly any signs of evolution. High aromatic intensity, where the toasted and spicy notes contributed by the French oak stand out, together with notes of ripe black fruit. The palate is fresh and unctuous, with smooth and polished tannins
