  • Agree with JDUNLAP on this note. I love LDH whites and it was a treat to taste (or guzzle) their 1994. It was a little over the hill, and lost a little bit of flavor, but wasn't all that different to the 2004 I recently had. Wax. Petrol. No fruit. Fun.

  • Purchased about ten years ago and stored in cool conditions since. Was not sure what to expect, but wanted to see how this white wine was doing at 20 years.

    Limited tableside notes include: Ullage was good and cork came out in one piece. Color was golden, but not too dark. Nose was quite good with no overt oxidation. Nose of apple and beeswax, may be a touch floral at the end. Flavors were also well balanced with more apple and waxiness. Flavors were round and well integrated. Remarkably balanced. Not your everyday white wine. Very enjoyable. Perfect with poached salmon, succotash and an arugula salad. Lovely.

  • Surprisingly good, and a fine counterpart to a grilled salmon dinner. This wine was unlike anything I've had before, and not what I expected: a heaping helping of oak and oxidation, to be sure, but nicely offset with lemony acidity. On the palate, a pleasing balance of waxy golden delicious apples, hazelnuts, and bracing minerality.

  • Dark golden wine, wih a poweful nose of marzipan, toasty oak, bee wax and floral tones. The palate is rich, thick, and mature, with medium acidity and a component that resembles butterscotch but not quite the way one experiences it with Chardonnay. A long finish with notes of roasted notes and dried fruit follows. This is a very pleasant wine, that needs considerable aeration to show its best and can stand up to powerful dishes. Drink now and in the next 2-3 years.

  • This is very old-school Spanish white, or at least what I believe old-school probably was. All I get is wood. DW liked it (really????) for the crisp yellow apple flavor. Guess I'll be seeking out more white Rioja.
