A monument. The wines from this winery have incredible ageing potential, up to 40 years. It needs a few hours to open up and show all its elegance and balance.more reviews

"So fresh and vivid. Lots of energy. A wonderful, classic wine." James Suckling
No one should ignore the quintessential Rioja Reserva: Viña Tondonia represents the highest level requirements of the appellation! After six and a half years of ageing in barrels, the wines are stored for another two years in the bottle before being marketed. The result is daunting. You will be amazed by its nose of vanilla, cocoa and leather. The second nose opens with fruit and rich notes of cherry brandy. The wine evolves every second in the glass for pure pleasure. The palate is opulent, tasty, finely balanced and the tannins are incredibly noble. Full of grace and vigour, it can still be kept in the cellar for a dozen years or be enjoyed now.

Surprised by the beautiful finesse and length with intense red and black fruit flavors supported by fine tannins but still present for a perfect balance. It's the right time to drink this 2009 but it probably can be kept... a few years.

LÓPEZ DE HEREDIA

A flagship reference in Rioja for over a century, Viña Tondonia is an unconditional purveyor of great wines. With an elite reputation and uncompromising style, Maria José López de Heredia has elevated her estate to the pinnacle of international viticulture. His expertise and perfectionism have enabled him to create terroir wines capable of competing with the greatest French wines. The Bodega (the estate) favors long ageing and the barrels are made on site. Still installed in its historic cellars, the estate is one of the only bodegas in Rioja to remain a family business, fully controlling the production cycle of its wines, from grape to bottling without external supplies. The greatest wine experts consider the estate's mosaic of terroir to be one of the most complex and rare in the world.
