2004 Vina Tondonia Reserva Lopez de Heredia

Having long-ago sold out of the magnificent 2001, we are delighted to offer its “worthy follower”, the 2004 Lopez de Heredia, Vina Tondonia Reserva Rioja. Scored at 94 points by Luis Gutierrez and available at an excellent price, it is an essential buy for any Rioja lover.


Fellow Wine Advocate writer Neal Martin is also a fan, declaring after a visit in 2012, “I have adored, indeed occasionally worshiped, the wines of Lopez de Heredia for many years”. This lofty reputation means that their annual output is highly sought-after and “not enough enough to satisfy global demand.” (LG)


In a vintage as strong as 2004 with such an impressive score and, above all, at this kind of price, is it very easy to see why the Lopez de Heredia is so desirable.

The 2004 Viña Tondonia Reserva is a completely different story. It is a worthy follower of the 2001, the greatest of the Viña Tondonia Reservas of recent times. It has the usual blend and usual levels of alcohol and acidity, bottled after six years in oak barrels. The nose feels savory (if that's possible–umami?) and developed, with tertiary aromas and good balance between spices, leathery notes, cherries and balsamic notes of cigar box and incense. The palate is both round and crisp, with refined tannins. It has very good balance with subtle acidity and very good persistence. (Apr 2015) www.erobertparker.com Drink 2015-2024
