Review

Ramón Bilbao Crianza is a renewed classic which offers excellent results thanks in part to an exhaustive control of the growth and ripening process of the grapes. The plots are interpreted and harvested individually when the fruit is at its ripest. They are then vinified separately too to extract the utmost potential from each batch. The different results are finally combined to create one of the most versatile and well-balanced red wines from Rioja, a harmonious, smooth and herbal wine ideal for drinking at any table.

 

Rodolfo Bastida, director of oenology at Ramón Bilbao, is responsible for this splendid red Rioja, a modern classic which enjoys huge popularity and prestige. As usually happens with great wines, the principal factor behind its success lies in the vineyards. Grapes are collected early in the morning to retain the freshness of the fruit. The wine is then devatted quickly after fermentation to ensure it maintains its wonderful colour but does not extract excessive tannins. It offers a delightfully bright and quite dense claret colour in the glass and an intense nose of wild black fruit and liquorice alongside warm spicy notes of nutmeg, vanilla and cinnamon. Balanced and flavoursome on the palate with a good level of acidity and perfectly integrated tannins, retronasal toasted tones also appear after the first sip.

Muy buena calidad precio

Siempre cojo un par en cada pedido. Consistentemente bueno, con un muy buen precio.

Grande vino

Dei miglior rioja provati fino ad ora, si sente il legno e la maturazione degli aromi che persistono fino alla fine della bottiglia. Potente ma non pesante, vale assolutamente il prezzo.

Guter Alltagswein

Bei Ramon Bilbao weiß man genau was man tut. Guter Rioja, professionell hergestellt. Sehr gut, aber nicht außergewöhnlich.

Belle découverte

J'avais adoré découvrir ce vin qui m'avait été offert. Je l'ai gouté à nouveau, avec des plats libanais. C'est une très belle découverte, un très bon rapport qualité prix pour un vin très équilibré, qui doit se marier avec une belle variété de plats.

Bodegas Ramón Bilbao

Ramón Bilbao is an excellent example of pure Rioja traditions combined with the latest innovations in winemaking. The winery came into being in 1924 although its founder Don Ramón Bilbao Murga had been working in the wine trade in Haro since 1896. The winery was run by generation after generation of the family until 1966 when Ramón Bilbao Pozo passed away with no sons or daughters to take over the firm. Five years later it was decided to convert the famil...
