The Wine Advocate #251 - 19th Aug 2021 - Luis Gutiérrez - 2018 Remelluri Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de Labastia - 94+/100 - $38
Produced with grapes from suppliers, the 2018 Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de Labastida comes from a cooler and wetter year not without challenge. A blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano, it fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in barrels of different sizes and origins for 13 months. This is more reticent and serious, with a grainy sensation on the palate, beautifully textured. It has more austere tannins. This is probably the finest vintage for this wine so far. 2018 has produced many great wines. 87,200 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2020.

James Suckling - Oct 14, 2021 - Remelluri Rioja Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de Labastida 2018 - 94+/100
A firm, linear red with black licorice, black cherries and violets. Medium-bodied, yet the tannins are round and pretty. All here. Drink or hold.
