2010 Pesquera, Crianza, Bodegas Alejandro Fernández

Pesquera, Crianza, Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez
Alejandro Fernandez is justifiably proud of his 2010, a vintage in northern Spain, as in much of Europe, where finesse and power do not exclude each other and the fruit is pure and rich. The 2010 is, as usual, from 100% Tempranillo and has been aged, as is traditional, for 18 months in American barrel and 6 months in bottle before release. The wine is  excellent and must rank among the best Pesqueras of the last ten years.

The voluptuous creamy ripe fruit profile one has come to expect and savour; where this vintage really shows its class is in the tannic structure and spicy back-bone; extra layers of complexity invigorate and refresh the palate. Ideal with casseroles and cured cheeses and much more besides!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Spanish at its best Great balance and plenty of character. Probably will reach its peak in 2016/17 but will certainly make you smile now! Difficult to beat its value for money. 23 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by If you haven't, you should This is a lovely wine and it really does epitomise what Tempranillo is all about, especially from this estate. I've bought their wines for 20+ years. This Crianza is loaded with plum/damson fruit. It is elegant, rich (creamy) but not at all fat - plenty of acidity for balance. Really benchmark stuff, and at under £20 a bottle it's a steal. I'm a huge Spanish fan, particularly Rioja and Ribera del Duero and I have some lovely examples in my (BBR) cellar; but i would not hesitate to put this bottle on the dinner table for anyone. 06 February 2015
