Bodegas Exopto

Rioja, Spain | website

Bodegas Exopto was founded in 2003 in La Rioja by Bordeaux native Tom Puyaubert. Exopto is taken from the Latin term for desire or longing. The 2013 Bozeto (sketch, outline) is a old vines blend of 50 per cent Garnacha, 40 per cent Tempranillo and 10 per cent Graciano. The Garnacha comes from a 60-year-old vines and is fermented and aged in concrete eggs to capture all of the bright, juicy fruit. The Tempranillo comes from the cooler Rioja Alta region and is fermented in 3+ year old French oak. The inclusion of Graciano brings further freshness, savouriness and spiciness. The 2013 Bozeto is a perfumed, lip-smacking, medium-bodied red of wonderful energy and clarity - think high-grown Côtes du Rhône or juicy ripe cru Beaujolais with perhaps more complexity. This wine is fermented by wild yeasts and bottled unfined and unfiltered; approximately 2000 cases are produced, quite remarkable at this low price point.
