Winemaker Notes

Attractive dark ruby-red color. Intense bouquet of fruits of the forest that open out with very refined oak in the background. Charming mature fruit in the mouth that highlights this wine's noble origin. Flavors are still fresh with pleasant fullness that combines with tannins to give a nice balance. Unctuous structure and good complexity that come through elegantly, promising an excellent development in the bottle. Luscious finish with refined, well-integrated tannins. A splendid wine.

Wine & Spirits
This reflects the vintage in its beefy richness, while it follows Cáceres's modern style in the polish and elegance of its tannin. The fruit develops definition with air, tasting of tiny cherries and red currants. For the cellar, or give it time in a decanter for lamb chops off the grill.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Deep and dark, with attractive berry aromas. No mulchy, overoaked interference at all; it’s a clean wine with a medium-to-full body and lightly buttered berry, cherry and raspberry flavors. A mouthfilling, honest Rioja reserva with texture and a bit of vanilla on the finish.

Marques de Caceres, Spain
Image of winery

Founded in 1970, with its first release in 1975, Marqués de Cáceres the Rioja bodega was established by Henri Forner, whose family has been active in the wine business for generations. The winery is named for a Spanish peer who was also an investor in the winery and a friend of Henri Forner.

The Forner family fled Spain during the Spanish Civil War and settled in France. In the early 1960s, Henri Forner and his brother Elysée bought and restored two abandoned chateaux, Chateau Camensac and Chateau Larose-Trintaudon. These chateaux are now recognized as two of the finest properties in Bordeaux. When Henri decided to establish a bodega in his homeland, he selected what he considered the finest viticultural area in Spain: Cenicero in Rioja Alta.

Emile Peynaud, former professor and chief wine researcher at the University of Bordeaux, was initial consultant to the winery. Today, Michel Rolland is wine consultant at Marqués de Cáceres and Henri and his daughter, Christine, are at the helm. The vinification methods at Bodegas Marqués de Cáceres are similar to those used in Bordeaux. Thus, French winemaking techniques and expertise have been applied to native Spanish grapes to produce one of the finest modern Riojas.

Tempranillo

View all products

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.
