1964 Bodegas Faustino I Gran Reserva, Rioja
From Rioja’s finest vintage, this remains remarkably fresh. The nose is, as you’d expect, tertiary, with notes of leather, autumn leaves and linseed oil. There is still a hint of fruit on the palate alongside still-ample tannins, showing that life remains in this old gem yet. Perfect provenance Rioja from 1964 at this price is truly exciting.
