Press

  • When Ramón Bilbao winemaker, Rodolfo Bastida, said, ‘You have to take rosé as seriously as you would a red or a white’, you know he is halfway to cracking the code. Bastida has taken note of the stellar wines emanating from Provence and he decided to make his very own version in Rioja. Lalomba uses 40-year-old Garnacha vines planted at 700 metres altitude on stony, clay-limestone soils, with the surrounding Mediterranean forests sheltering the vines from prevailing winds. Rodolfo handpicks the grapes and sorts them rigorously prior to ‘bleeding’ the pale colour from the skins. 40% of the yield is transferred to concrete eggs where it is left to settle, before undergoing a 20-day fermentation at temperatures below 15C. The top estates in Provence use old vine Grenache and cold fermentations so, give or take the ‘eggs’, the grape variety and method is similar. So, just how good is this wine? Why don’t you road test 2016 Ramón Bilbao Rosado. This is Bastida’s entry level wine and it gives you an idea of the class of its big brother. Once you have picked your jaw up off the floor you will feel compelled to graduate to Lalomba! I would never have thought that Rioja could make rosé this classy, but with old vine Garnacha, the right site and the perfect attitude it has happened already. This is incredible news for us fans of elite rosé.

  • "The finest sub-tenner Spanish rose of the year". I cannot think of another rose which I have written up from Spain. Not to worry, though, because this wonderful wine would crush any opposition, such is its class and sheer beauty. Its bargain-priced for this level of complexity and it is stunningly delicious - you really must taste this wine.
