Monopole Rioja Blanco Seco Viura 2016

Completely obsessed with this. Has that waxy and honeyed lemon of old Lopez. Fresh burst of citrus spritz. Then slapped with that salinity of the manzanilla. So damn good. — a month ago

Viña Bosconia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2008

Very supple tannins, but good acidity

Classic Lopez de Heredia profile, v recognisable

Nose - classic bouquet of woodsmoke, blood orange, dried cherry, aged meat, and a very faint hint of sweet vanilla.

Palate - medium bodied, immediately hit with a burst of blood orange, cherry, the hallmark of these wines. Rich, but very precise, with firm acidity and dusty tannins. Very savoury, with tangy acidity and a pleasing finish.

Drinking very well now but will age. I adore this style of rioja.

Morus Alba delle Venezie Malvasia Sauvignon 2013

Slightly oxidative. Reminds me a ton of Lopez de Heredia white wine, but with more crisp acid. Generous & ready for the table. Has some round edged tropical fruit with more mineral tones on the back end. Very good. — 4 months ago

Artadi

Viñas de Gain Selección de Añada Rioja Tempranillo 2002

Just needed a couple decades to come to life👍🏼
K&L notes

The Artadi Estate was created in 1985 by the dynamic, visionary winemaker, Juan Carlos Lopez de la Calle. His objective was to seek and nurture the concept that Tempranillo , when cultivated at high altitude, low-cropped and from old vines, produces extraordinarily rich, deep colored, and profound wines. This, coupled with specific barrel treatment (with minor oak American oak influences) produces one of Rioja's most exciting new wines. Artadi is about purity of extracted fruit with almost Burgundian textures: sheer power, complexity and startling finesse. The results have been astounding! These are some of the most exciting of Rioja's new-wave wines.

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2006

The wines from Maria Lopez de Heredia are Riojan by the instruction manual and are also completely saturated with the soul of a little fire cracker of a woman so lovable I just want to be friends with her. Can we be friends?

My 2006 is a blend of elegantly restrained moderately extracted Tempranillo, Garnacha, and treated oak - flavors and aromas you can start to connect across the LDH portfolio.

Cherries and dried strawberries, a bed of mint and basil. On the palette, a drawback from fruit to high acid mineral salts. Then into darker cherries, prune, rosemary, mint, and saddle leather. Bravo.
