Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Contador has become one of the great cult wines in Spain. The last two consecutive vintages have received the highest honour: 100 Parker points, achieved by both 2004 and 2005 vintages.
Contador is produced by the great Benjamín Romeo at Bodega Contador, a winery that is already legendary in D.O. La Rioja and it is a coupage of 94% Tempranillo, 3% Graciano and 3% Mazuelo.
The grapes come from small plots owned by the winery, distributed in various towns in the Rioja Alavesa area: San Vicente de la Sonsierra, Briones, Ábalos and Labastida.
Different soils, micro climates, locations and altitudes that allow us to experience a great wine. Very complex and rich with nuances, Contador is an expression of purity and sincerity of the earth.
According to Benjamín Romeo it is "A great wine that was born in the vineyard". It is impossible to make this wine without careful agriculture.
With the objective of extracting the best possible quality, the vines are placed in a vase, leaving only one bud for each thumb. Less production, but great quality.
The harvest is done by hand and the grapes arrive at the winery in under 30 minutes so that the grapes do not lose any quality.
Once in the winery, the grapes are subjected to a double selection process. Firstly they select the best bunches, and after de-stemming them, they finish the selection by picking the best grapes from the best bunches.
Benjamín Romeo´s obsession for detail has no limit. The new French oak barrels where Contador undergoes an aging for 18 months, are made from the best oak that Benjamín personally chooses.
It is an exclusive wine, unique, special and they only release 5000 bottles onto the market. We recommend that you decant this two hours before enjoying it.

Bodegas Contador is Benjamín Romeo: life, love for the land, roots, strictness, passion, time, results ... success. He began as a winemaker and oenologist, working for large wineries in La Rioja. However, with his personal project he has managed to get his wines on the menus of the most famous and expensive restaurants in the world. With utmost respect for the raw material and with a cultivation oriented towards maximum respect for the terroir, he started his personal project to create acclaimed red wines, authentic designer wines of low production.
