This is a wine out of the ordinary. The 2017 Contador is made from a selection of the finest grapes from carefully chosen parcels of the estate. Harvested in two stages to keep only the best grapes, each vintage is completely outstanding. The old vines give it a superb foundation, a rich and juicy substance, perfumed with notes of black fruits and extremely elegant floral nuances. The balance is perfect, the mastery of the maturation complete, the concentration accompanied by an ideal freshness. In short, a monument of world viticulture built for a very long aging!


Hand harvested, cold maceration at temperatures close to 16ºC for about 5 days, fermentation for 9 days in oak vats and ageing in new French oak barrels for 20 months.


Dark, intense and deep red.


Intense perfumes of perfectly ripe black fruits linked to beautiful floral notes.


Rich and elegant, the wine is perfumed and full-bodied. The balance mixed with the concentration propels this wine to the rank of "World Wine Monument"!


Decant before serving between 16 and 18°C.

Food and wine pairing:

Iberian ham, matured cheese.

Cellar aging:

From now until 2045

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.
