Gold Medal Winning Vintage 2011: (Berliner Wein Trophy 2020): ''This is honest with depth and give. Berry flavours are enriched by vanilla- coffee notes. Whilst smooth and steady on the finish.'' 91 Points, Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

''Blackberry and cassis aromas are ripe and come with oak-driven vanilla. On the palate, this is honest with depth and give. Berry flavours are enriched by vanilla- coffee notes, while this is smooth and steady on the finish.'' 91 Points, Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
''This red wine from Bodegas Valdemar is the right choice for all wine enthusiasts who like as little sweetness in their wine as possible. However, it is never sparse or brittle, but round and smooth. On the palate, the texture of this balanced red wine is wonderfully velvety and dense. With its balanced fruit acidity, the Conde Valdemar Gran Reserva Rioja flatters the palate with a pleasing sensation. In the finish this red wine from the wine growing region La Rioja finally inspires with extraordinary length. There are again hints of plum and black cherry.'' Sommelier.Reviews
“Sweet, aromatic nose with herbs, tea and cherries. Nice freshness and elegance on the palate with some savoury notes. Fine mineral complexity and good acidity.” 91 Points, Tim Atkin, Special Rioja Report (Previous Vintage Review)
Very intense garnet. Great complexity on nose and palate of ripe cherries overlaid with chocolate, with a whiff of balsamic. Silky texture and well-rounded in the mouth with all elements evolved and balanced.'' International Wine & Spirits Competition 2018 (Previous Vintage Review)
All the Valdemar grapes come from the family’s own vineyards giving unrivalled control over the quality of the fruit.
Conde Valdemar was chosen as one of the best 5 wineries in La Rioja in the last 25 years by Wine & Spirits Magazine, and is acknowledged as synonymous with quality and continuity the world over.
