Lopez de Heredia Vina Tondonia Rioja Blanco Gran Reserva 19 1970

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Fresh and intensely aromatic with layered fruit that suggest mangosteen and waxy yellow cherry, there is a nuance of starchy vegetal that resembles sunchoke but the notes of smoky bacon, almond, licorice all wrapped up with a saline edge are completely intriguing. Smooth and showing excellent integration in the mouth this has a gentle core of honied yellow berried fruit with lovely notes of blond tobacco, pollen, and game adding complexity. There is a nice citrus core to the fruit that leads to the long finish which is sweet and precise. 93pts
