Shame no picture with the color pre consumption! I was lucky enough to have a 75 this past summer and found it equally wonderful. Cheers!

La Rioja Alta

Reserva Viña Ardanza Rioja Tempranillo Garnacha 2016

Ruby in color with a wide cloudy reddish rim.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with nice complexity.

Showing red and black fruits with oak, licorice, eucalyptus, herbs, mediterranean spices, coffee, earth and black pepper.

Nice tangy finish with soft tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a very tasty 7-year-old Rioja Reserva. Elegant and soft.

Showing nice complexity at this point, and will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

Easy drinking and a good food wine.

I had the 2009 a few years ago, and loved it. This one just needs more time in the bottle to mature properly.

A blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha. Aged for 3 years in used American oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2011


When in Rioja, drink Rioja.

Reddish in color with a wide reddish rim.

Nose of red fruits with earth and mildew notes.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with nice complexity and mouthfeel. Elegant and restrained.

On the palate red fruits with earth, light wood, spices, coffee, dark chocolates, tobacco leaf, herbs, light wet leaves and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This recent release of this Rioja Reserva is drinking very nicely now.

A good quality wine. Easy drinking, and a good food wine that I paired with dried meats and crackers.

This 11 year old feels so very young still, and will continue to age nicely in the next 25 years.

Needs time to open up properly, but good right out of the bottle too.

A blend of 70% Tempranillo with Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo. Aged for 6 years in used American oak barrels.

13% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2017

No formal notes ….Medium straw colour . Quite intense slightly smoky lemon peel , flinty , oyster shell nose . On the palate quite surprising intensity and excellent length , refreshing acidity . Nice yellow fruits and roundness allied to great freshness . Drinking surprisingly well , though better in 5-10 years and should hold for a further 5-10. — 14 days ago
