Description
Ramon Bilbao have been making increasingly large waves for the past decade or more as their traditional approach has modernised bringing clarity, focus and dynamism to their wines. Their Crianza has out-sold many other Reserva wines in our shelves, simply because there is such density of fruit and quality in all their wines - no matter the ageing declaration. This Reserva is superb. A point rating from Parker of 91 is never to be ignored regardless of your stylistic preferences and this wine has routinely lived up to that review, vintage after vintage. To use a rather tired aphorism, it is a 'modern classic' in all aspects - labelling, oak influence, structure and flavour and even in terms of growing production. `We remain very impressed.
