Re: TNs: Great Spanish Rioja wines

I found CVNE Vina Real 1959 very good a few years ago. I also like the aging of the Imperial cuvée.

Re: TNs: Great Spanish Rioja wines

The old Lopez de Heredia red wines actually taste (both aromas and texture) like burgundy wines : complex, thin, fresh.

And I generally don't like modern young Rioja wines (oaky, alcoholic, heavy, ...).
My preference goes to Bierzo, Valdeorras, Ribeira Sacra (mencia) and Madrid/Mentrida (grenache).

Re: TNs: Great Spanish Rioja wines

Interesting.

At the domain in 2015, I had two wonderful wines :
Lopez de Heredia rojo Bosconia Gran Reserva 1968 and Lopez de Heredia blanco Gran Reserva 1973

Rioja at its top, I think !

Re: 5 white/ 13 red Burgs incl DRCs, Leroy, Vogue, Lignier

Torlochet or Tortochot ?

Btw, I recently had a great Arlot Forêts St-Georges 2001 (needing time to develop, this wine was not as amazing when it was younger). A "vendange entière" wine (like Rayas).
