Lucky Tuesday Tasting at Ametsa with Arzak Instruction & Bodegas Remirez de Ganuza

We were very fortunate to have Luis over from Bodegas Remirez de Ganuza, to talk us through all their wines, including a few bottles and magnums of older vintages sent from their cellar - hence the lucky epithet. Without talking about every wine we tasted, I would like to focus on the mini-vertical of their Reserva wine, which is the lynch-pin of their range. Their wines are aged for longer than the statutory period at each level, so their Reserva could be labelled as a Gran Reserva (one for the purists, out there!).
