This week, I dusted off a bottle of Corral Gran Reserva 1987. From Rioja Alta and made with 85% Tempranillo and 15% Garnacha, I was pleasantly surprised that it was in perfect condition for a 30 year old wine. Having said that, while it was still pretty good on the nose it would be fair to say it had lost a little of its finesse. Having left a glass in the bottle overnight (I know!!!) it hadn’t kept up the next day despite being vacuumed. It certainly wouldn’t last much longer in my opinion. So if you’ve got any, I suggest you start drinking it!
