Wine Advocate 95 points - The 2008 Pagos de Viejas was selected from three of the estateís finest and most elevated sites with all of the vines over 75 years of age. The wine was aged for 18 months in new French oak. Deeply colored, it offers up a superb nose of pain grille, pencil lead, Asian spices, incense, and assorted black fruits. Rich, layered, and beautifully proportioned, this lengthy effort will evolve for 5-7 years and offer a drinking window extending from 2016 to 2028+. In addition to the two new releases listed above, I received samples of the various components of the 2009 Vina El Pison. Inky purple, dense and rich, it will surely be a contender for a perfect score. But that is a story for next year.  (Jun 2011)

Producer
Owner Juan Carlos Lopez de la Calle has been surrounded by old vines and great wines since early childhood when he used to accompany his grandfather during harvest time in Rioja. Dedication to detailed, delicate and hard work is something he learned at an early age, and these are governing principles for his three award-winning wineries in Rioja, Navarra and Alicante. Artadiís ideology is that “the value of a great wine is intimately linked to the land and its people.Ē The conviction to safeguard this intimate link is what drove Juan Carlos to make wine in three distinct regions of Spain. Producing wines made from the single most important variety of each appellation, working with estate-grown fruit and developing a team of viticultural experts that respect the traditions and climate of each region are Bodegas Artadiís fundamental keys to success. If asked, Juan Carlos would say the peculiarity of different soils, disparate climates and the inherent excellence of the grape varieties are the genesis of the authenticity of Artadiís portfolio of wines. Indeed when one looks at Artadiís contribution to Spanish winemaking, we find wines with character, personality and identity that reflect their roots in natural viticulture.
