Lopez de Heredia Vina Tondonia Red Gran Reserva 1954

Winemaker's Notes:

Drinks like a Grand Cru Burgundy from an excellent vintage...the fruit is now completely integrated with the oak and the wine is at its apex."The wines of R. López de Heredia define traditional Rioja, and they set the standards by which the region's modern reds must be judged. Vintners who believe that more fruit concentration and new French oak are the keys to success in Rioja must prove that their wines can deliver the same character, harmony and ageability that mark Viña Tondonia and Viña Bosconia, the flagship wines of Rioja's glorious anachronism." WS 3/02 "The 1954 Vina Tondonia Gran Reserva displays the classic Tondonia nose, with suggestions of tobacco, minerals and alcohol. Less expressive on the palate, it shows sweet, perfumed dark fruit with excellent length...90" WA 10/06
