Contador is one of the crown jewels of Rioja, blessed by the legendary 100 points of guru Robert Parker Jr.'s tasting team, over two consecutive vintages: 2004 and 2005 and thereafter only wines between 95-100 points. It is the work of Benjamin Romeo, who has managed to realize the potential of Rioja. to show when you produce in very short runs with only focus on the very best.

The Benjamín Romeo Collection Nº 3 El Chozo Del Bombón is a powerful and concentrated Tempranillo that certainly needs some time to age. The Tempranillo grapes come from a 50 year old plot planted in brown limestone soils. The quality of the tannins is great but are certainly still present in the youthful years. The nose is clean, with abundant ripe black fruit and lots of spice and a hint of milk. This is the oakiest of all red wines from Benjamin Romeo. The wine is fermented in small oak barrels with native yeasts and aged in 100% new French casks, which is the house style that is more apparent here than with its siblings. In June 2020, 2,400 bottles were filled and after that the wine was bottled for another 9 months and was only released at the beginning of 2021.
