Pantocrator Edicion Limitada Rioja 2005, Bodegas Taron

Spain / Aragon

Andy's Tasting Notes

Multi award winning. 14 years old yet full of life and complexity.  A truly great vintage in Rioja delivering a bottle of Rioja with immense richness, roundness and depth.

Full-bodied hints of raspberry, cherry, spice, liquorice, vanilla and mocha.

90% Tempranillo 10% Mazuelo.  Produced from estate owned vines over 70 years old.  Superb long aftertaste.

Will keep a further 5-8 years+.

A delight.

Pantocrator 2005 is a numbered limited edition of 11.957 bottles, a Rioja Reserva that will be only released in exceptional vintages. The 2005 vintage was considered ‘excellent’ by the Regulatory Council of DOCa Rioja and considered also by some in the region (and at the winery) as the best vintage of Rioja in this century, only matched with the acclaimed 2001 vintage.

The name of the wine, Pantocrator, was chosen because the great significance of Romanesque Art in their area and is a Romanesque Art depiction of Christ in Majesty, surrounded by the evangelists as allegoric zoomorphic figures (angel, lion, bull and eagle). The label of the wine reproduces the hand of Christ blessing with ‘Pantocrator’ a Greek word that means ‘the all-mighty’.
