Wine bought to a retired wine distributor in Haro, La Rioja, in March 2013.
Stored in private cellar up to today.
1955 Vintage (as well as 1952 and 1958) was classified as 'Excellent' by the Regulatory Council of Rioja and it was memorable in the outskirts of Haro village and, more specifically, in Bodegas Bilbainas Estate. Some of the best wines ever produced in Rioja were vinified in this perfect year.
Viña Pomal was vinified and fermented in big wooden vats for 12 months, from the founding time of the winery (1901), with no temperature control, and then poured to cask to be aged for 10 more years, 120 months. Racked 16 times, once every 6 months during the first 8 years, using the traditional cask-to-cask Riojan method. Bottled in 1967. Some bottles remained in the historical old cellar in Bilbainas winery in Haro and sold only bottle by bottle to loyal customers.
96/100 Vinos Clasicos: "In the mouth, it sparkles: fresh, agile, nervous, of great acidity, without wrinkles, without the shadow of the slightest edge. Luxury tannins, caressing, in an almost perfect framework, stately, resting. A great example of wine in fullness. It seems that it has reached its best moment. To store a few years and enjoy it to the fullest".
17/20 Elmundovino: "Dry flowers with some fine leather: great aromatic finesse. Totally alive on the palate, with acidity and tension at 60 years, and even slightly marked tannins. Great class".
94/100 Cellartracker: "Good fill, great mid ruby core with a more mahogany edge, a little cloudy. Initially, the nose was leather, smoke and earthy aromas but after 10 mins I was surprised how much deep spicy red fruit came forward. Lovely texture, totally there on the palate, layers of spice, fruit and smoke -- good acidity, balance, finely integrated tannins, nice finish, just delicious. Fabulous value, $160/btl for a lovely 60-year-old".
