Bodegas R. López de Heredia Viña Tondonia Tinto Rioja Reserva 2006
"This is a remarkably lively wine for a 12-year-old Rioja...." 94 pts James Suckling.
Bodegas Lopez de Heredia is one of the wine world’s great wine treasures. Founded in 1877 by Don Rafael López de Heredia y Landeta, the Bodega was built close to the railway station at Haro, in Rioja, its location geographically symbolic for proximity of access to the ideas of Bordeaux and practically useful for transportation of both grapes and wines.
This complex Rioja combines freshness and mouth-coating flavours, suggesting that, although a joy to drink now, this is a wine that will hold for at least a decade more. It is, put simply a glorious, traditional, elegant Rioja.
'This is a remarkably lively wine for a 12-year-old Rioja with notes of licorice and dried cherries and a very elegant tannin structure that runs through the medium to full body of this red like a silk thread. The dry finish is long and polished' 94 Pts James Suckling.
