Wine Advocate Reviews - Bodegas La Horra September 2018


CORIMBO 2013 || 93 points
“Like the wines from Rioja, the "second" wine does not carry a number, and I tasted two vintages of that wine, the fresher of which is the 2013 Corimbo. It shows fine gunpowder-like reduction, with a core of flowers and wild berries, fine and elegant. This is one of the most elegant and fine vintages I remember from this bottling. Truly outstanding. Bravo!”

CORIMBO 2014 || 92 points
“Comparing vintages is a great way to taste, but one tends to win while the other one fares worse, and that was the case with the very good 2014 Corimbo. On its own, it would have impressed me with its power and elegance, but it couldn't reach the finesse and freshness of the 2013. However, for those that prefer more powerful wines, this 2014 would come highly recommended.”

CORIMBO I 2012 || 92 points
“The balsamic and aromatic 2012 Corimbo I has aromas of cola nut, black peppercorns and Mediterranean herbs, denoting a very dry and warm vintage. It's also powerful and concentrated, which fits nicely with the conditions of the year.”

CORIMBO I 2013 || 93 points
“I also did a side-by-side tasting of two vintages of the top bottling, and I ended up favoring the 2013 Corimbo I, which shows the freshness of the year and bypasses the challenges of the harvest.”
