Characteristics of Carmen Gran Reserva

Carmen Gran Reserva is a red wine produced by Bodega Contador in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, D.O.Ca. Rioja.

 

Bodega Contador is the much awaited personal project of Benjamín Romeo, one of the most outstanding Spanish winegrowers. His talent for viticulture was discovered when two consecutive vintages of his garage wine, Contador (2004-2005), achieved 100 Parker points; a true accomplishment. 

With Bodegas Contador, in San Vicente de Sonsierra (La Rioja), Benjamín Romeo wants to give continuity to a unique and personal style, based on attention to every detail of the winemaking process.

Bodega Contador has over fifty plots with different soils, microclimates, orientations, altitudes, varieties and clones, which allow them to achieve wines with great complexity. All the work they carry out in the vineyards is organic, respectful and honest, applying biodynamic guidelines throughout the entire process.

 

Carmen Gran Reserva is a wine made from Tempranillo, Grenache and Graciano from their own vineyards located in the municipalities of San Vicente de la Sonsierra and Briones. The average yield per vine is of 0.5 kilos.

The harvest is performed by hand, placed in 14-kg boxes, and in a maximum time frame of half an hour it is transported to the winery. Once in the winery, they perform a manual selection of bunches, and after destemming, a manual selection of berries. Without crushing, the grapes are placed in truncated cone-shape vats with a capacity of 10,000 litres, where it goes through alcoholic fermentation. Once the fermentation ends, the wine is left 24 months in second and third-use French oak barrels. The wine is not stabilised or filtered. Before it is launched on the market, it is left to stand in the bottle for a minimum of 36 months.

 

Carmen Gran Reserva is a mature, fresh and lingering wine. It stands out for its balance between aromas of ripe fruit, compote fruit and the notes of wood, coconut, vanilla and cedar. Its elegance in the mouth makes it subtle and delicate. A superb tribute to Benjamín's mother, showing the best of both Riojas, the traditional and the modern.
