R. López de Heredia

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2006

Thursday night and on the precipice of another weekend and it is time to revisit wine from Spain. Tonight's wine is the 2006 R. López de Heredia Viña Tondonia Reserva. This wine is from Rioja and is a blend of 75% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacho, 5% Graciano and 5% Manzuelo.

The nose has notes of black cherry, fig, licorice, vanilla, leather and cigar box.

On the palate there are well balanced notes of dried cherry, tart raspberry, coffee, licorice, leather and tobacco.

This wine is medium to full bodied with medium + acidity and medium + firm tannins that lead to a long persistent dry finish a very nice wine to start the weekend off right. Enjoy the weekend coming up and please stay safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Domaine Méo-Camuzet

Perrières Corton Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2016

The first of a bracket of 3 x Corton Rouge at the 2016 Grand Cru tasting. Ironically before the tasting a few of us were discussing how underwhelming Corton Rouge tends to be and that maybe they should plant the lot to Chardonnay. WELL! How wrong can you be. This was the best bracket of Corton Rouge in 4 years of attending these tastings. All tasted blind. The Meo had a lovely spicy nose of red fruits. Fresh - 10% whole bunch. The palate was of palate staining intensity and amazing length. All 3 in this bracket shared that. — 9 hours ago

@Severn Goodwin No. The theme was 34 Grand Crus all from the 2016 vintage.

Domaine Faiveley (Joseph Faiveley)

Corton-Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru 2016

The 2nd of 3 wines in the Corton Rouge bracket. Tasted blind. Again - fragrant perfume, the epitome of fine Red Burgundy. On the palate luscious black cherries - juicy. You could happily drink this now although should be kept in a cool cellar into the 2030s. So impressed I bought a bottle at the end of the day. — 9 hours ago

@Severn Goodwin @David T Yes the 2016 Corton Rouge vintage is highly recommended and almost affordable in Burgundy Terms.
