Christmas Drinking 2020

La Rioja Alta Seleccion 874 Reserva Rioja 2016 - this is drinking well my uncle fortunately took delivery of a few cases of these in September which I was fortunate to receive a couple of bottles as a gift!!


I’ve finally managed to get my order in for Christmas before missing out on too many treats. It would be good to hear any thoughts or serving tips (e.g what should be decanted or isn’t ready for drinking) from the community to get the most out of the batch below.

These were ordered to try and get a look into some wines from my first En primeur orders this year:
Baron de Brane, Margaux 2010
Rosso di Montalcino, Gianni Brunelli, 2018
Nebbiolo Langhe, GD Vajra 2018
Barolo Bussia Silvano Bolmida 2011
Guigal Crozes Hermitage 2015
Society’s Hermitage, 2006

And a few others which I’m looking forward to drinking:
