YJAR 2017

Telmo Rodriguez

Case Format: 3x75cl

YJAR is a single vineyard cuvée from the foothills of the Sierra de Toloño in Rioja Alavesa. Described as a “cult wine in the making” by Jane Anson, YJAR’s small production, winemaking clout, and consistent slew of high scores has contributed towards its collectability.

Trained in Bordeaux, Rodriguez is one of Spain’s most celebrated winemakers, showing the unique terroir of Rioja, without veiling the grape’s characteristics behind vast amounts of American oak. A powerful wine that is brimming with flavours of liquorice, blueberry, red fruits and tobacco, this is an absolute must-have for fans of Rioja.

Georgina Hindle

The first time a Spanish Rioja has been offered via the Place de Bordeaux. The new wine by oenologist-winemaker Telmo Rodriguez, was definitely one of the wines of the tasting. It is a 3.8-hectare, single-vineyard cuvée from the limestone foothills of the Sierra de Toloño in Rioja Alavesa and made from a massal selection of Tempranillo, Graciano, Garnacha, Granegro and Rojal. A gorgeously dense and rich nose, concentrated and a balanced combination of perfumed elements, fruit and spices - cherries, ripe plums and liquorice. Tannins gently settle on the tongue but the flavours are impactful and so precise. It’s a bold wine but seriously defined and charming, super fresh and elegant. And you really feel the limestone terroir in the clarity and cleanliness of flavour. Superb. A production of 7,000 bottles that will be sold in its entirety through Bordeaux.

Very ripe red with plums, figs, dark chocolate, walnuts and cloves. Full-bodied with round and layered tannins that show ripeness and intensity. Fruit-forward, but formed and powerful. Plush and high-toned. Savory finish. From 3.8 hectares of vineyards. It’s a field blend of tempranillo, graciano, garnacha, granegro and rojal. Shows the ripeness of the vintage with structure and freshness. Crazy wine. Outstanding first bottling of this wine, with global distribution only through negociations in Bordeaux. Better after 2025.
