There is nothing better than really good, mature Rioja and Urbinas 2004 Gran Reserva and 2006 Reserva Especial with 16 and 14 years in bottle are as good as it gets. I am not in the least surprised they have been featured in the latest issue of Decanter magazines Rioja Guide 2023 with scores of 95 and 92 points respectively.

A magnificent aged Rioja - a deep garnet red with burnt fruit, plums and a hint of spice on the nose. It is still fresh and almost young with a complex array of jammy fruit and a finish that goes on and on. It will remain a superb wine for at least another 10 years if not more. Tim Atkin gave it 95/100 - a mammoth score for a wine that is under £30 a bottle.

I first tasted Urbina in Arzacs famous restaurant in San Sebastián in 2005 when Chef Arzac told me that Urbina was very good after 10 years in bottle, and really good after 20. Sound advice from the Master Chef himself which I followed!

Urbina started making Rioja in Rioja Alta 150 years ago and have continued to do so today under the same family ownership. Their wines are known for their classic, elegant and refined style with great aging capacity.

Garnet-red colour; aromas of classic spicy mature Rioja but still with lots of fruit to draw upon. Intense, stewed autumn fruits on the palate combined with sweet spice. Crying out of roast leg of lamb...

"A perfumed wine with vegetal maturity. This has evolved very well into a round, plump, fleshy gran reserva with a sweet fruity finish. Drink 2023-2048."
95 pts, PM, Rioja Guide 2023
"Open, very clean and precise, with indications of ageing. Juicy, appetising, soft and serious at the same time, with a long, distinctive finish. Still far from its peak."
95 pts, Pedro Ballesteros Torres, Rioja Guide 2023
"The Urbina family’s appealingly traditional Riojas age brilliantly thanks to the acidity that comes with growing Tempranillo in the cool, limestone-dominated Cuzcurrita zone. This isn’t a blockbuster wine, but it’s remarkably complex, savoury and scented with notes of wild strawberries, forest floor and pouch tobacco, filigree tannins and haunting balsamic sweetness."
