Reviews and Ratings

Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The Rioja Bordon 2012 is an exemplary wine from the Bodegas Francos-Espanolas, located in the Rioja Valley of Spain. This Reserva shows vibrant aromas of sour cherry, dried blueberry, mustard seed, pastrami, cigar box, wood burner, chocolate, parmesan cheese and oak. Full-bodied and complex, the Rioja Bordon is made from 80% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacha Tinta and 5% Mazuelo, providing a long and refined finish. The first sip offers lovely flavors of cherry, strawberry, black pepper, pastrami, tobacco, smoke, cinnamon and oak. Great day to day wine. Enjoy!
Rioja Bordón 2012 is a rich and full-bodied red blend of 80% Tempranillo, 15% Red Grenache and 5% Mazuelo grape produced by Bodegas Franco-Españolas. Fragrant with fresh mushroom, dark cherry, dark fruit and oak spice aromas on the nose. Dry, spice with dark cherry, pink florals, dried sweet tobacco, chocolate and smoky flavours on the palate finishing long and spicy. Tannins are structured and fine. Bodegas Franco-Espanolas dates back to the 1890s, in the heart of Logroño, Rioja's largest city. Pair with a grilled rib steak. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
