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.

27 de June de 2018



LOSADA  2016 Score: 90
Lithe and lively, this red shows a core of fresh black cherry flavors, backed by licorice, cocoa and light leafy notes. Light tannins and fresh acidity are balanced, giving way to floral and mineral details on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 10,000 cases made.
–TM

Altos de Losada La Bienquerida 2015 Score: 92

This rich red has a dense texture backed by muscular tannins. Ripe flavors of plum and currant mingle with loamy earth, mineral and cola notes. A big, almost brawny style for the region, but balanced. Drink now through 2028. 400 cases made.
–TM

Losada 2015: Top Ten Spanish reds -Canadá
Anthony Gismondi, The Spitter
Losada Bierzo 2015
90/100
Bierzo, Castilla-Leon, Spain
This my kind of big, red wine, rich and juicy but mineral laden and full of red fruits. It's rich and warm with meaty, smoky, savoury notes. The palate is big and warm but juicy with spicy, vanilla, savoury, black cherry, plum, smoky tobacco and licorice flavours. A blockbuster red you should decant and serve with roasted meats. My choice would be a leg of lamb

Great featured article on Losada Vinos De Finca Wine Spectator


13 de March de 2018



Great featured article on Losada Vinos De Finca Wine Spectator! -“Established in 2004 , winemaker Amancio Fernández comes from a deep- rooted family of local grapegrowers. The bodega- a striking work of contemporary architecture- is designed to nurture wines of elegance and purity rather than power ( using French oak, but only larger casks) The vineyards are all owned or managed by the winery and are located in the heart of the region, privileging clay soils that, Fernandez believes beget wines of more subtlety than schist souls common in the region. The whole range shows characteristic freshness and harmony”. WS
