Bodega Contador Coleccion No. 3 2015
The third wine in the collection, the 2015 Colección Nº 3 El Chozo Del Bombón is pure Tempranillo from the vineyard that names the wine, a 50-year-old vineyard on brown limestone soils. It fermented in oak vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in new French oak barrels for 18 months. I find the oak to be better integrated here than in the previous vintage, possibly the effect of a year that has produced more powerful wines that have been able to take the élevage in brand new barrels. It's quite representative of the house style and the character of ripe Tempranillo. 3,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2017.
