From the legendary vintage of 1964 in Rioja. This very rare sack was bottled in December 1978: 14 years in cask (11/78 - check out pictures). Extremely good storage conditions. Fully mature and therefore drinking well now, or cellar for 20-25 years.

Vintage: 1964
Number of bottles: 1
Bottle size: Bottle (0.75L)
Region: Rioja

1 bottle of Viña Tondonia 1964 Gran Reserva (75 cl.)

Bought in Rioja in 2007.
Stored in private cellar up to today.

95/100 Wine Spectator: "Extraordinary. Sweet vanilla and dried berry aromas and flavors have an unexpected richness in this vibrant red. Impressive for its balance of concentration and elegance. The long finish defines traditional Rioja at its best".

94/100 Wine Advocate: "The red wines began with two 1964s, a vintage widely thought to be one of the great years of the 20th century in Rioja. The 1964 Vina Tondonia is cherry red in color with fragrant spice and cassis notes in the complex perfume. Sweet, savory, elegant and impeccably balanced, it is a wine of great finesse and character".

98/100 Cellartracker: "A beautiful wine and a testament to Tempranillo blends... Wow... Cherries, dried cranberry, raspberry, dried sage, brilliant high toned acidity, sweet tannins... This wine was opened, not decanted, and enjoyed over 3 hours. Color was medium garnet and the persistence of flavor was remarkable... How can this wine be 50+ years old? How can I be?".

98/100 Cellartracker: "The '64 had an element of freshness that the others did not. Classic Riojo nose of dried fruit and a little barnyard/funk. Pallate was pure freshness and dried cherries. Blind, I would have guessed it was only a few years old. How can this thing be 51+ years! Plenty of structure and acid on the back to carry this for a long while. Compared to the 1991s we've had recently, this is pure muscle and needs a bit more time. I'd guess 10-20 years or more. Glad there are 2 more in the cellar!".

98/100 Cellartracker: "Powerful nose with layers of aroma; black fruits, saddle leather, dried meat and tobacco. It's constantly changing every time you return to the glass. This is stunning and still so youthful, it has precision and clarity of flavour with pure black fruit balanced by perfect acidity, some real grip and layers of leather, tobacco smoke and meaty flavour. An absolutely stunning bottle".

*** Shipment made with special wine box certified by UPS and DHL.

    Parcel rejected by UK Custom office and returned back to Spain. The buyer was immediately contacted and informed about the situation. Parcel shipped again to UK, free of charges (even if it had to be paid by the addressee).

    Message sent to the buyer:

    "Unfortunately, the parcel was refused in UK custom's office and referred back to Spain. This morning it was delivered at home. It's a very unusual situation. I will claim Correos Spain and its partner in UK. But in any case, I will send you again the wines. Of course, free of charge.

    I don't know if custom policies have changed in UK. I apologise for the inconvenience caused. Shit happens!

    Please, don't hesitate to contact me if there are more problems with the new delivery process.

    Best regard".
