1955 Bilbainas "Viña Pomal Reserva Especial" Rioja
Bid on this bottle of 1955 Bilbainas "Viña Pomal Reserva Especial" Rioja (94JG). John Gilman: "The 1955 Viña Pomal Gran Reserva is a beautiful bottle of old Rioja that is still at its apogee and offers up a glorious bouquet of dried black cherries, gamebirds, charred wood, dark chocolate, fresh figs, cigar ash, lovely soil tones and a nice topnote of savory elements that recall things like celery seed.

The breakdown by variety was about 40% Tempranillo, 40% Garnacha and 20% of the rest, mainly Mazuelo and Graciano. 1970 was a very famous vintage in Rioja, the one that provoked the extension of the vineyards. … This was a very ripe vintage, and the wine seems to be aging faster than other vintages, with a little sweet fruit, ripe and fully resolved. The 1970 Viña Real Gran Reserva was bottled in February 1975. There was a bit of discussion about this wine, as it was one of the most anticipated vintages. At this age, of course, there are
