Decanter's top wine of the year 2013 - Faustino I 2001 Rioja gran - only £14 at asda

Found 4th Dec 2015
Something to celebrate? going to a posh soiree? hoping for some 'special bouncy fun' with the missus? This is the wine for these occasions. Simply lovely. Yes, it's a little more expensive than i'd normally spend for my weekend bottle, but hell - once tasted, never forgotten. I urge you try. £18.99 on amazon.
Edit: The one at tesco is the 2004, not the better 2001 vintage.

nice...l guzzle the cheaper Faustino down like it's going out of fashion so will give this a go

I'm taking your advice on this. But if I don't get some 'special bouncy fun' I shall hold you personally responsible.

£13 at tesco

Heat for 'special bouncy fun'

one of the worst wines I've ever tasted. reaaly disappointing and low quality 14 could be spent on much better reds

I'm not doubting you, but i'm wondering if your bottle was corked?

You might want to slow it down with this one, it's a tad pricey to just neck it

i think costco do for less than £11.50.

Well, I see they do a case of six that works out at £13.34 a bottle. It would be unusual (although not unheard of) that they would sell singles for less?

You might want to put it in your title that this wine is a Rioja.

I can't understand it. A bland generic Châteauneuf-du-Pape is gaining heat, but this is not. Some people are such uneducated heathans.
