“The white 2014 Clos de l’Échelier offers a clear, pure and smoky but also ripe and almost tropical fruit on the nose. On the palate, this is a very elegant, round and more fruity Chenin compared to the Clos Romans, but its freshness, purity and salinity is also lingering and gives tension as well as length. The wine needs some hours to open up and reveal its purity and freshness. Take this into account when you consider it too creamy and lactic in the first moments. The wine is much more vital and grippy after hours…” Stephan Reinhardt, erobertparker.com

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.
