Bozeto means ‘sketch’ or ‘outline’, and as the name implies, this is Tom Puyaubert’s entry-level wine. This pan-regional expression of Rioja’s three principal grape varieties is conceived as a lively, easy-drinking introduction to the range. While most entry-level wines from this region today are based on Tempranillo (a variety both easier and more profitable to grow), Garnacha represents 60% of the blend. This Garnacha hails from the sandy, river-stone terroir of El Agudo—a 60-year-old plot at Alfaro on Monte Yerga (in Rioja Oriental). The Tempranillo is drawn from a selection of mature vines in Ábalos (high-county Rioja Alta), and there is also some Ábalos Graciano, adding freshness and finesse.

Puyaubert ferments this wine in a combination of concrete and steel tank, then ages it for six months in concrete and 5,000-litre oak vats. These days, Tom includes a measure of semi-carbonic maceration for extra buoyancy. This is another smashing release for this wine. Delivering plenty of perfume, it’s a tangy, crunchy-fresh Rioja that marries vibrant summer berry fruit with a dusting of cocoa powder, supple structure and length of flavour. Juicy, aromatic, wonderfully drinkable—and incredible value to boot!
