La Nieta 2015 Magnum
La Nieta es uno de los mejores vinos del país. Procede de un pequeño pago de apenas 2 hectáreas situado en La Rioja Alavesa y trabajado con la mínima intervención. Es un vino que armoniza concentración con sutileza y que refleja el esfuerzo y la constancia de un trabajo adaptado a los biorritmos de la naturaleza.

Opinión de los críticos
I also tasted the powerful and concentrated 2015 La Nieta, which was very open, aromatic and expressive, even a little evolved for its young age. It's ripe, heady and generously oaked after 16 months in new French oak barrels, yet the fruit is in the foreground and the oak neatly folded into the fruit. The palate is juicy, fresh and velvety with an amazing backbone and acidity that holds it up and will help it to age gracefully in bottle. Most years, this is the most elegant wine from the wide portfolio produced by the Eguren family in their wineries in Rioja, Páganos, Sierra Cantabria and San Vicente. There is great finesse, balance and subtlety here, and there are even some floral notes coming out of the glass when the wine is left for a while. 5,000 bottles produced. - Luis Gutiérrez.
Halfway between Rioja and top Burgundy in style, joyous fruity expression and deep, multi-layered structure on the palate. Delicious now – difficult to resist drinking it, but it will become unforgettable in a few years’ time. An icon of postmodern Rioja.
