The wines of Marques de Caceres are made as a partnership between one of the region`s most innovative producers and Michel Rolland, one of the world`s leading consultant winemakers. Their class and breeding shine through.

A World class wine of immense power. Deep and full-bodied with a firm structure and intense purity of fruit. Massively complex and long length.

Incorporating 5% Graciano, the Tempranillo-dominated 2012 Gaudium spent two years all in new French oak. It offers a ripe, sexy yet classic Rioja bouquet of black raspberry and cassis fruits, toasted spices, sandalwood, and dried flowers. Rich, full-bodied, with bright, yet integrated acidity, it's a rich, layered, incredibly impressive wine that will keep for two decades.

Small parcels of old vineyards aged 70 years plus, including some pre-phylloxera vineyards which are over 100 years. Low yields of less than 1kg of grapes per plant. Parcels staggered at various altitudes, ranging between 400 and 650m in Rioja Alta and on hilltops up to 740m in Rioja Alavesa.

Clay-like and calcareous soils on limestone rock. Steep valleys that exclusively used to cultivate small vines.

Incubation by gravity, without pumping. Slow alcoholic fermentation of the whole grapes in small stainless-steel tanks and wooden vats with indigenous yeast. Prolonged maceration always avoiding over-extractions. Malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels. All movements by gravity carried out with utmost care.

19 months aging in fine and extra-fine grain medium toasted French oak barrels selected from the best forests. Minimum of 2 years aging in bottle before the launch date.

100% manual havest in 15kg boxes, parcel by parcel. The grapes are stored in cold chambers for a few hours and then a thorough manual selection takes place bunch by bunch on the sorting table.

95% Tempranillo and 5% Graciano

Enjoy with lamb dishes, grilled vegetables, paella, ham, chorizo and cheeses.

"Saturated berry, cassis and black-plum aromas are densely packed onto the nose of this tightly built iron-fisted Rioja. Berry, plum and cassis flavors are lightly toasted and spicy, while this is juicy and bold on the finish. Best from 2020–2024."
