2016 Losada Spanish Red "Losada" Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good+ (90)

Losada 2016 del blog Ken’s Wine Guide:

2016 Losada Spanish Red "Losada"

Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good+ (90)

Review date: March 20, 2019

Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Mencia is a very good introduction to this grape. It opens with a black cherry and leather bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and very juicy. The flavor profile a mineral influenced tart plum with notes of black tea. I also detected some hints of wild strawberry and black pepper. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins linger and last for quite some time. I would pair this Mencia with a slow cooked beef brisket.

Losada 2017: new vintage


12 de March de 2019



The musthave of Losada. It represents the universality of the  mencía from Bierzo area. With the approach of spring, we renew ourselves in Losada and change our vintage. Our Losada 2017 arrives, a vintage that no one will be able to forget due to the frosts that ended with a large part of the production.
However, the fruit of this vintage has been extraordinary. It is a fruity, elegant, very balanced and surprisingly fresh vintage. A mencía that will make you enjoy even in the warmer days of spring.

Something new: we have included a 1% of minority varieties. Selection of old Mencía vineyards located in the heart of Bierzo: Valtuille de Abajo, Pieros, Villadecanes and Corullón. Soft hills with different orientations. Age: 40 - 60 years.

Sustainability. Since 2017 we have removed all traces of herbicide from the soil, increasingly concerned and committed to the conservation of the biodiversity of our soils and the viticultural heritage.

Tasting notes. Red cherry with reddish reflections. Clean, intense and bright. Fruity aromas and blue flowers, presence of red fruit. Fresh and silky entry. A lot of body and structure. End broad and persistent. A fresh, fruity, Atlantic wine with a marked character from Bierzo.

Pairings: ausages, grilled lamb, roasts, rice dishes, rice dishes, roasted red meats, roast lamb

New review for our first mencía wine: Altos de Losada 2016


07 de March de 2019



Altos de Losada 2016

Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good+ (91)

Review date: February 28, 2019

Wine Review: This dark red colored Mencia from Losada opens with a black forest chocolate cake bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and a little juicy. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused plum with hints of gentle black tea, espresso and a touch of pomegranate. The finish is dry and its refined moderate tannins stick around for a little bit. This Mencia would be perfect with slow cooked beef brisket. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The flagship wine produced from 17 small estate parcels on steep hillsides, is aged 15 months in new French oak and achieves the estate’s highest levels of concentration and minerality.

James Suckling just released his Top 100 Spanish Wines 2018
“Spain is determined to amaze the world with its new wines!”

Losada is proud to place in 9th position out of the top 100 best Spanish Wines 2018 with La Bienquerida 2016  and in 27th position with Losada 2016.
Losada Vinos de Finca was featured TWICE in @james.suckling 's Spain's Top 100 for 2018! Losada 2016 was ranked #27 with a 96 point score and Altos de Losada La Bienquerida 2016 was ranked #9 with a 98 point score.

Spain: from the elegant to the robust
This year no Spanish wines earned a perfect 100-point score from JamesSuckling.com, but that this doesn’t mean that no Spanish wines blew our minds. We rated five of the 2,800-plus Spanish wines 99 points and 12 wines earned 98 points. Although, given Spain’s historic strength in powerful yet refined reds and wines of this kind dominate our Top 100 for Spain,

“Spain is determined to amaze the world with its new wines!”

LA BIENQUERIDA 2016 #98
Vintage 2016
Puntuación 98
A very complex and deep-set wine from the outset. This shows a very impressive sense of purity, suggesting immaculate attention to detail in the vineyard. Dark stones and graphite with light, peppery nuances and a deep black-cherry core. The tannins are long, sleek and sexy, like crushed velvet. Long and fresh. Drink or hold.

Altos de Losada in the opening panel of 25th Aniversary of Wones From Spain Great Match of New York


17 de de 2018



Steve Metzler, founder and co-owner of Classical Wines with his wife Almudena de Llaguno, participated in the opening panel discussion of the 25th Anniversary of Wines from Spain #SpainsGreatMatch NY.
Here are some comments of his, reflecting on the beginning of his more than 40 years in the Spanish wine industry:

My career in wine parallels the renaissance of Spain in the post-Franco era, beginning in 1976. In that year, Spain’s first glossy gastronomical magazine (Club des Gourmets) debuted, and Hugh Johnson’s World Atlas was published in paperback (we stacked that 100 at a time, $7.99 a copy), enabling virtual travel to the wine country.

Remember Spain had dropped off the map following the Civil War and remained hidden during the advent of mass media in the 20th Century. Meanwhile American servicemen came home from tours in France, Germany and Italy and brought awareness of those wines to the American public.

Spain was fascinating not for the wines we were able to taste at the time, but for their theoretical quality based on a study of the conditions responsible for fine northern European wines. Wagner’s Line separating Atlantic from Mediterranean climate zones was an early inspiration, and I adapted this in Spain with a broad arc I called ‘The Quality Crescent’, leading to my first solo itinerary in 1983 (also to the discovery of multiple DOs prior to their inception). Of course, this arc had to include Sanlúcar de Barrameda and its inimitable Manzanilla, reputed to be best drunk only in its region of production—a reputation shared with Albariño at the time.

We spent the 80s and into the 90s reacquainting the markets with the fact that Spain was an integral part of Europe and European winemaking history. Our SWE and WSET lectures of those years focused on geography (latitude and altitude) and history to support.
