    Winemaker Notes

    Many say Artadi is one of the most sought-after estates in Rioja and Pagos Viejos one of the most sought-after wines in the world. Decades of intense labor in the vineyards have given famed winemaker and owner Juan Carlos Lopez de Lacalle the experience and passion for making wines of true excellence. Containing fine aromas and an elegant mouth feel that is fruit-forward on the mid-palate, and supported by round tannins, Artadi's Pagos Viejos is the ideal representation of what an artisanal wine should taste like when carefully made from the old-vine Tempranillo that is grown in Rioja Alavesa. An experience to be enjoyed on special occasions, this wine is dark cherry red in color and is both elegant and aromatic. Containing intriguing aromas of dark chocolate, black minerals, cigar box and fresh coconut, this wine is unctuous and elegant with a very long finish.

    Artadi, Spain

    The Artadi estate was created in 1985 by the dynamic visionary winemaker, Juan Carlos Lopez de la Calle. His objective was to seek and nurture the concept that Tempranillo, when cultivated at high altitude, low-cropped, and from old vines, produces extraordinarily rich and profound wines. This, coupled with specific barrel treatments (with minor American oak influences) produces some of Rioja’s best wines.

    Artadi is about purity of extracted fruit with almost Burgundian textures. In fact, critics have often compared these wines to the top wines of Chambolle-Musigny and other top appellations of Burgundy. The key to this level of elegance comes from the cold wines of the Pyrenees which blow from the north. This coupled with moderate temperatures tend to make these wines a study in elegance and power, the iron fist in a velvet glove if you will. They are some of the most extraordinary examples of Tempranillo in the world.

    Tempranillo

    Hailed as the star red variety in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Tempranillo from Rioja, or simply labeled, “Rioja,” produces elegant wines with complex notes of red and black fruit, crushed rock, leather, toast and tobacco, whose best examples are fully capable of decades of improvement in the cellar.

    Rioja wines are typically a blend of fruit from its three sub-regions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta and Alavesa, at the highest elevations, are considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier, Rioja Oriental, produce wines with deep color, great body and richness.
