“The now-pure Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Fransola, does not contain any Parellada anymore (it used to have some 10%), but it might have some Forcada in future vintages. It was selected to be produced from a higher altitude zone within Penedès to keep the freshness in the wine. It fermented in stainless steel and part in barrel and had an élevage of eight months in 50% new French and American oak barrels. It has notes of peach and apricot that reminded me more of a Viognier, with a notable absence of herbal notes. The palate has some more varietal flavors, citrus, with a faint bitterness in the finish, nicely balanced and fresh. It’s a vibrant and balanced vintage.” Wine Advocate #236

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.
