Ich hatte mir diesen Wein an einem Verkaufsstand besorgt.
Kräftiges kirschrot. Nussaromen. Wenn man sich für diesen Wein entscheidet, muss man auf Röstaromen stehen.

200 Monges Gran Reserva is beter dan het eten. Ik kan me niet voorstellen deze 200 Monges Gran Reserva 1996 alleen te drinken.
Bigarreau kersen van medium intensiteit. Fijne aroma's van viooltjes . De zachtere Rioja .

Suitable for a menu as varied as we had. I drank it alone.
It had a deep colour at first sight. The smell of red fruits in the 200 Monges Gran Reserva is quite obvious. With a right roughness.
