"We continue to cultivate the vineyards and indeed make our wines following the techniques and philosophies laid down over 140 years ago," says Maria José Lopez de Heredia. "This has been no accident – we have taken the conscious and voluntary decision not to use modern technology in our winemaking." 🥺
『這是一家讓我最難忘懷，有如活著的百年葡萄酒博物館的西班牙酒廠。創立於1877 年的López de Heredia 讓釀酒技藝倒退一百年，卻也讓我懷疑是否該重新修習釀酒學。……曾有人說田帕尼優跟黑皮諾(Pinot Noir)有些近似，指的其實是像產自阿羅鎮附近、頂級且老式陳年的Gran Reserva，非常優雅。……我只能說López de Heredia 讓現在的葡萄酒迷有直接通往百年前，品嘗上一世紀葡萄酒滋味的機會。』 ~林裕森 (西班牙葡萄酒)
要跟林老師一齊領略百年滋味，探究一下López de Heredia 這家讓時間靜止的酒莊，必然要試他的旗艦酒款Vina Tondonia Reserva，難以想像今時今日每家酒莊恨不得立即將新年份的酒悉數推出巿場換錢💵，卻有一家不慍不火的將最少有十幾年踏入適飲期的存酒推出巿場....在木桶陳熟6年才裝瓶，然後在瓶內陳熟6-8年才交到你👅，單睇時間⏰已經值回酒價👍
數量不多， 要以超低價試到這高份年份的話，快D call 我地啦📲
🏅 Robert Parker 95pts
The red flagship 2006 Viña Tondonia Reserva was inspired by the vineyards of the Médoc but produced with local grapes, 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacho, 5% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo, which achieved 13% alcohol in 2006. It always matures in used American oak barriques for some six years. The oldest of all the reds I tasted, it was also the one with more freshness, which speaks to the quality of the vineyard. This takes the lion's share of the 400,000 bottles the winery produces, with some 220,000 bottles filled over a period of 12 consecutive days in May 2014.

This is a remarkably lively wine for a 12-year-old Rioja with notes of licorice and dried cherries and a very elegant tannin structure that runs through the medium to full body of this red like a silk thread. The dry finish is long and polished. Drink or hold.
🏅 Vinous 93pts
Vivid red. Highly perfumed scents of ripe red currant, cherry liqueur, pipe tobacco, leather and rose oil, along with a hint of coconut in the background. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering deep-pitched red fruit preserve, spicecake and floral pastille flavors and a hint of mocha. The silky, sweet, impressively long finish features excellent clarity and lingering spice and smoke nuances.

This red remains fresh and juicy, featuring cherry, berry and licorice flavors mingling with smoke, coffee and mineral notes. Light, firm tannins and orange peel acidity keep this balanced. Drink now through 2021. 18,333 cases made, 4,800 cases imported. — TM
