Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Remelluri Estate is between the Labastida and Rivas de Tereso/San Vicente, so that's how they separated the fresh, entry-level reds produced with grapes purchased from 12 or 13 suppliers (for both Lindes). The 2013 Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de Labastida is a wine that is always floral, subtler and with more elegance. The cold (and challenging) vintage produced a lighter, more ethereal wine, with a fine thread in the palate; it is nicely balanced and has a remarkable finish, with the textbook finesse of the tannins from Labastida. I like this very much. Some 45,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2015. In the terrible 2017 vintage that was finishing fermenting when I tasted this 2013, they didn't produce half that quantity.
