Barón de Chirel wine first appeared in 1986 as the result of experimental production using a selection of grapes from very old vines, between 80 and 110 years' old, with a very low yield and high quality. From the results of these trials would appear what we could say was the precursor of the so-called "new era" of Rioja wines.

Wine EnthusiastThis deep, smoky, minerally wonder is full to the brim with ripe blackberry, tobacco and fine-oak aromas. In the mouth, this Tempranillo-led blend is rich and jammy but not out of shape. Blackberry, prune and toasty flavors finish lusty, with a touch of heat and burn that should settle in due time. Drink now through 2023.

Wine SpectatorTobacco and tar notes frame dried cherry, plum and light gamy flavors in this old-school red. This is harmonious, with a savory character, a polished texture and a long, spicy finish. Drink now through 2020. 1,416 cases made.
