“First planted in 1130 by Cistercian monks, the Clos de la Coulée de Serrant has been in the Joly family since 1962. Nicolas Joly began converting the family domaine to biodynamics in 1981 and has been a leader in the movement to apply Rudolf Steiner’s agricultural philosophy to the vine. His daughter, Virginie, worked her first harvest in 2002, and has brought a pragmatic vision to her father’s holistic goals. The 17.2 acres of vines at the Clos are between 35 and 80 years old, growing on steep schist slopes. The wine ferments and ages in 500-liter barrels, with no more than five percent new oak in a vintage. Whether or not you appreciate the style and the sometimes-oxidative character, there are no other wines like it. Deep gold in color, dark in its earthy savor, this layers floral scents, ginger and ripe pineapple with earthy notes of schist. It has a kind of invisible freshness, open and racy, delicately detailed. Give this time in the cellar and plenty of air; it is used to oxygen and only gains freshness over the course of several days open.” Wine & Spirits

Reviews

  • Joseph Newman

    I like this Reserva from RdD. 100% Tempranillo aged for 24 months in oak barrels.

    3.8 stars with more aging potential.

    A deep ruby red and purple shades. Thick long legs in the glass.

    On the nose medium intense aromas of blackberries, black cherries, black raspberries, horse saddle, leather and slightly oak.

  • Soham Phillips

    This amazing powerhouse from Ribera del Duero. Tinto Pesquera Reserva 2012 - Bodegas Alejandro Fernández. Decanting is advised 👌🍷 delicious cherry, vanilla, leather and cederbox with cigars. Milk chocolat, forrest floor, laurel. Great lenght and depth Amazing wine!

  • Gregor Jagermeister

    90 pts Given the quality of the Crianza I really was delighted to find this Reserva, needs way more time to fully flower however, still very enjoyable for me now. The Crianza is ready now, but this shows sleeping intensity and great future potential and longevity, wait a few years however.

    Typical earthy red fruit with good use of oak, dusty vanilla. Weighty, full with a long finish, it will be a star in the future.
