    Rubí rojizo de capa media-baja, muy clarito, ligeramente granulado y turbio con un finísimo precipitado en la base de la botella. Reflejos anaranjados, borde amplio, atejado. Gran sensación de evolución.

    Nariz con un punto muy ligero de evolución, nada molesta, sin tufos ni excesos reductivos, con aromas de fruta roja confitada, licorosa, y un rastro de vainilla y duelas envinadas de fondo. Abierto, suave, cremoso, especiado, dando recuerdos de especias dulces, caramelo de cola, clavo y tostados de calidad (café quemado, cacao en polvo). Muy "tondoniano", en la línea de os clásicos 6º Año de la bodega.

    En boca es maduro, cremoso, sabroso, muy integrado con taninos finos, limpios. Se bebe con gran facilidad, armónico, reposado y todavía vivo gracias a una acidez más que suficiente. La primera o segunda cosecha de Viña Tondonia Reserva con señalización de añada después de décadas de elaborarse como 6º Año. En estos primeros años no hay diferencias notables de estilo entre ambos vinos en comparación de los actuales reservas tintos de la bodega. La tempranillo ha ido ganancia importancia en deterioro de la garnacha, graciano y mazuelo.

  • Powerful tobacco aroma with a layer of sweet fruit underneath. Light and elegantly styled but starting to feel a little old, the fruit is very secondary to smoky tobacco flavours and the acidity a little flat. Nice charred charcoal character on the finish. Very evolved compared to the 70 and 73 alongside it. Not a great bottle perhaps?

  • Beautiful wine which you could easily mistake for a burgundy.
    Very light with smell of red berries and fully intergrated tanin.
    Would have loved another bottle, shame its so rare!

  • Dim Sum Club does Old Tempranillos (Golden Peony, Conrad Hotel): This was beautiful straight after it was poured, but went alarmingly downhill really quickly. On first blush, I thought it was rather more complete than the 1982 Riscal Reserva served alongside. While the nose was not quite as immediately arresting or pretty as the preceding wine, it seemed to have a greater depth and breadth to its large scale scents of foresty earth, broiled meat, umami miso notes spilled onto an underlayer of dried fruit aromas laced with coffee and balsamic scents. There was some debate on the table as to whether this had reached the end of its peak drinking period, but I thought on the palate at first that this actually had a pretty long way to go. It was a bit tight at first, a bit monolithic almost, but it quickly opened up gently into a subtly delicious mouthful of black cherries and crunchy blue and blackberries spirnkled with little drifts of earth, smoky spice and mineral. All this was cosetted in a lovely robe of perfectly integrated acidity and wonderfully resolved tannins. While the finish was not the most immdiately impressive, it had a quietly brooding presence that stretched away into a lengthy tail with little hints dried fruit, orange peel, sweet spice and dusty earth. Absolutely seamless, very classy. A beautiful drink. Unfortunately, barely 15 or 20 minutes after that, the wine started to lean out bit by bit, starting at the finish and ending on the midpalate, where the fruit receded and the wine began to show its acid and fine tannin bone-structure. Time to drink up, but boy was it good when it lasted.
