2007 Lopez de Heredia, Rioja Reserva, Viña Tondonia, Spain $42.89
Lopez de Heredia's Viña Tondonia Rioja Reserva is one of Spain's greatest wines. In fact, if I were to only buy one red wine from Spain, it would be Viña Tondonia. With complexity and longevity that would embarrass most first growth Bordeaux and at about 1/10 the price, this is truly an amazing wine and equally amazing value. Lopez de Heredia is perhaps the most traditional winery in the world with little changing in the way they make wine over the last 130+ years. The 2007 Viña Tondonia Reserva is the great young Viña Tondonia Reserva - probably the best of the decade up to this point. The nose offers enticing aromas of dried cherries, cigar box, leather and faint vanilla bean. The perfectly balanced and supremely elegant palate is well structured with good acidity and refined tannins that frame the complex flavors of dusty minerals, plums, dried herbs, orange peel and hazelnuts. This wine has amazing depth. Buy a case and watch it develop and gain in complexity over the next 30 years. “Following the appreciation of the 2007 vintage from María José López de Heredia, the red 2007 Viña Tondonia Reserva is showing great, revealing unusual finesse and elegance. The nose is a little reticent but nuanced and complex, a little shy rather than explosive. The palate is medium-bodied, and the tannins are very refined. This has to be one of the finest vintages of Viña Tondonia Reserva of recent years.” - 96 Wine Advocate

2012 Dom. Jean-Pierre Gaussen, Bandol Rouge, Longue Garde, Provence, France $39.99
Geek Alert: Fans of old-school Bandol take note - this is the real deal. This is not one of those gussied up, lipstick sporting glossy juice-ball Bandols. The 2012 Gaussen Bandol Rouge offers an ethereal nose and the promise of greatness with some additional bottle age. The palate is tight, structured and balanced with a little dark fruit surrounded by notes of herbs de Provence, leather, a little wild game and a strong soil signature. In time, this will become the perfect food partner with cassoulet, garlicky lamb dishes and the like. Enjoy now with hearty fare, or better yet, through 2025-2035 for additional complexity. Awesome Bandol.
