The Many Facets of Rioja

Diving into the Rioja red wine piscina can be at turns fascinating and confusing. My advice is to approach the region without preconceptions. Rioja produces Tempranillo-based reds that range in style from hyper-traditional, often rustic and austere wines that wouldn’t be unfamiliar to a time traveler from the 19th century to flamboyantly rich, fruit-driven, new oak-influenced bottlings that would blend in well—and even stand out for their sheer quality—in blind flights of high-end Napa or Bordeaux wines.

To celebrate life, friendship and camaraderie, there is nothing better than French bistros or brasseries. Happy people search them out to have fun, to enjoy each other’s company and to relax. La Fermette Marbeuf fits the bill perfectly.

2013 Domaine Roger Lassarat Saint-Véran Les Mûres ($20) 89 points

2013 Domaine Roger Lassarat Saint-Véran Les Mûres, 89 points

This remarkably successful Saint-Véran from a tricky vintage offers pure but subdued aromas of lemon curd and flowers. It’s dense and strong but juicy and energetic thanks to early harvesting, with a floral quality dominating. The persistent, firm-edged finish features a touch of vanillin oak. (ST)
