Artadi Pagos Viejos 1996 Magnum
£146.37 (Inc. VAT bot. 150 cl.)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The dark ruby/purple-colored 1996 Pagos Viejos (400 six packs available for the United States) is a fabulous Rioja. It boasts a complex bouquet of lead pencil, red as well as black currants, spice box, cedar, and tobacco. Made from low yields, the wine displays a gorgeous mid-palate, great depth and purity, and a finish that lingers for nearly 40 seconds. Drink this spectacular effort over the next 15-25 years.
Between 16ºC and 18ºC
Aged for 15 months in French oak barrels.
