DRINK OF THE WEEK
28th November 2016
Baron de Ona 2012 Rioja Reserva 
Waitrose 10.00
Drinker Rating 91

I'm really impressed with this brilliant Waitrose Christmas Parcels promotion.These are limited quantities of wine released for two weeks ending 6 Dec all at 10 and when they're gone they're gone.

I tasted the Bordeaux, a Haut Medoc which was exceptional, a smart Chianti Classico, Chablis and Gavi - oh yes and the Port was very good too. But the pick of the bunch was the Rioja.

This is a 2012 so it's got a nice bit of development to it, primary cherry turning to soft new leather. It is simply everything an affordable Rioja should be - I'd go as far as to say it's the best 10 Rioja on the market in the UK.

These wines are displayed prominently in Waitrose stores, do look them out they're a real treat.
