Baigorri Belus is the other jewel of the house. All the knowledge and selection capacity of Baigorri B70 is applied to this wine with the difference of the protagonist, the Mazuelo grape which is accompanied with a little Tempranillo. A red wine with the Qualified Designation of Origin Rioja Alavesa, coming from old vines with an average age of 50 years, located in the city of Samaniego, at the foot of the Cantabrian Mountains. These vineyards are worked under criteria of sustainable agriculture and harmony with nature with 100% manual work.

Made mainly with Tempranillo grapes, plus a small proportion of Mazuelo. The grapes were selected manually, grain by grain, using selection and vibration tables. Grapes de-stemmed without crushing, macerated in special tanks with temperature control and long fermentations at moderate temperatures to maintain the characteristics of the fruit. This wine aged in new French oak barrels for 14 months. The interesting thing about this wine is the behavior of another variety that is not common in Rioja Alavesa, in the same geographical location. A wine really different from what Baigorri is used to.
