Bodega Contador Contador Rioja 2016
Only the very best grapes are used here. 5,700 bottles of annual production. The flagship of the Contador bodega. Infinitely fine, racy, mineral. Almost wasteful in the aromas of blackberries. Extremely intense. Ripe red and black fruits, tart aromas (thyme, rosemary, lavender and fennel). Mineral and great roasted aromas from the 18-month maturity in wooden barrels. Infinitely powerful, extremely fine. The fruit / wood ratio is superbly balanced. Intense and insanely long.
