El Meson Crianza Rioja

El Meson Crianza Rioja is a modern Tempranillo that has lively red fruit, complemented by a touch of vanilla and spice, fine acidity and smooth tannins.

Baron de Ley is a winery which was devised and founded in 1985 by a small group of prestigious Rioja professionals which decided to create a project which was unique at that time in the Denominación de Origen Calificada Rioja: a winery modelled on the Médoc châteaux.

With this objective, the creators of Baron de Ley acquired the Imas estate, within the boundaries of Mendavia and on the left bank of the River Ebro. http://www.barondeley.com/cellar/grape-harvest/en

It is an exceptional place for growing vines due to its climatic conditions and the characteristics of its soils, on which 90 hectares of vines were planted.

At Barón de Ley, grapes are picked by hand, not just to look after every single grape cluster but also to make the most of our greatest asset: the vineyard.

Logically, by having the grapes right next to the cellar we can take special care of the quality of our wines, reducing as far as possible the time between picking and entering the winery during the harvest, avoiding unwanted fermentation starting during the transfer.

This big advantage has also allowed us, over the years, to put in place an ambitious policy of manual grape selection.

For more than a decade, the output from our best vineyards has been harvested into large 300-kilo crates and transferred to our two sorting tables in the winery.

There, each and every one of the clusters is checked visually, rejecting any that are not in perfect condition and consequently achieving “a selection of a selection of our best vineyards”… grapes of the most unusual quality.

Currently, in Barón de Ley we manually sort through over 850,000 kilos of grapes in each harvest as part of an unprecedented commitment to quality in Spain, rejecting percentages of grapes which generally range between 10% and 20% depending on the source and the vintage in question.
