The Oddbins Take

Koden is an Aztec word meaning “the time in a woman’s life when she’s at her most splendid” which, we think, is an excellent name for a wine. And, with fragrant, red fruit and a velvety, luscious palate, this wine really does have those qualities that you’d associate with feminine beauty and fertility. Ahem, sorry, this all sound a bit odd now we’re reading it back, but you’ll see what we mean if you try it.

The Wine Gang, Report February 2014: "Good value, young, modern-style Rioja with nicely concentrated, supple red-berry fruit, sweet spice and a silkiness derived from well-integrated and balanced oak, which was delivered in the form of six months spent in new French oak."
Bodegas Luis Alegre is a family firm located in the heart of the Rioja Alavesa, which generally produces wines that are heavier than those from Rioja Alta, and it has a philosophy that can, they say, be summarised in one word: quality.

    No, we're not being sexist. Well, OK maybe a bit. And before you all write in or report us to the EU, yes, men, you are allowed to buy this. Thing is "Koden" is an Aztec word meaning "The time in a woman's life when she is at her most splendid". See what we're getting at..... It's also a damn fine Rioja.
