James Suckling ranks two of our wines among the best

The influential American critic has given a positive assessment of the wines we make at Hammeken Cellars.

James Suckling has given in the first place,  to Beloki Tempranillo Crianza Rioja 2019 91 POINTS and in second place, Tosalet Vinyes fins a 50 anys with a total of 90 POINTS. Both scores make us feel very proud.

The renowned taster has been amazed by our wines for various reasons. About Beloki Crianza highlighted the following: Savory cherries, plums, bark, cinamon and mushrooms on the nose. Medium-bodied with round and tight tannins that add some grip to the fluid palate. Vivid finish. Drink now”. In addition, our Rioja 100% Tempranillo is aged for 12 months in American and French oak barrels.

“Sweet black cherries, blue flowers, slate and blueberry compote. This is juicy and elegant, yet shows good intensity, with soft, velvety tannins rounding off the medium-bodied palate. 60% grenache and 40% carignan. Drink now.” This is what Tossalet Vinyes fins a 50 anys emphasized.

Specifically, two wines from our catalog reach the outstanding (score reserved for those that exceed 90 points).

The search for excellence in the wine we produce places our portfolio among the best international options. Thanks to these scores we harvest more points in each of the award-winning wines, fact that confirms the constant search of Hammeken Cellars for quality year after year.
