Robert Parker : 93/100


A pure tempranillo wine, the 2018 Red Rioja Cueva del Contador reflects all the style and delicacy of the estate. A bottle that combines generosity and freshness with a rather taut palate, with tight tannins. A very nice approach to the Rioja and its grape variety. Rated 93/100 by Robert Parker.


Hand harvested, de-stemmed and crushed, fermented and aged for 19 months in new 100% French oak barrels.


Intense red.


Intense aromas of black fruits with hints of sage.


Ample and generous, this wine is slightly tense, with still tight tannins, and a lot of freshness.


Decant 2 hours before serving between 16 and 18°C.

Food and wine pairing:

Herb-crusted prime rib, duck breast with candied figs.

Cellar aging:

From now until 2042

Nestled in the foothills of the town of San Vicente de Sonsierra, Bodega Contador is a true icon. Benjamin Romeo, the modern visionary with an uncompromising style and biodynamic viticulture principles, has brought his estate to the top of the world wine scene. It is said that he makes "silk wines" in reference to the extreme softness of tannins and precision that accompany each of his wines.

Repeatedly awarded the highest rating of 100/100 by Robert Parker, Contador joins Vega Sicilia and Pingus in the exclusive club of Spanish icons.
