Wine completely sold out. It can be found only in some exclusive restaurant lists in Spain. Not sold through the wineries' importers.
"Special Edition vinified for the art magazine "Matador" in Spain. The magazine sourced and bottled special, one-off wine, dress it with a label created by the French artist Philippe Parreno and offered it on a yearly basis to the magazine subscribers. Only 3.000 bottles. This very unique edition won't be produced anymore".
100/100 Wine Advocate: "Here we have a unique wine that might be difficult to find outside Spain, but it's a wine that is well worth seeking out—and one that made my heart beat faster. The texture is velvety, with resolved tannins, great concentration, finesse and elegance, with incredible balance and an aftertaste full of exotic spices, orange peel, tobacco and ripe berry fruit. The flavours linger in your mouth forever after you swallow. Take this as a unique, one-off, super Gran Reserva from Viña Tondonia. While this is very drinkable now it has all that it takes for a long life in bottle: this should outlive most of us".
Luis Gutierrez (Wine Advocate): "What about the wine itself? Well, the wine is simply outstanding, so I had to publish a special article to let readers know about it before it was all sold. It has the Tondonia character but feels extremely young, it’s not oaky—quite remarkable after five years in those large oak vats followed by 11 years in well-seasoned, neutral American oak barrels. 2001 was one of the finest vintages in Rioja in the last 40 years, and I cannot wait for the release of the 2015 Viña Tondonia Gran Reserva in 2021 to be able to compare the Matador bottling with the regular Gran Reserva".
99/100 Decanter (Sarah Jane Evans, Master of Wine): Glorious, and impossible to fault. The aromas are all mature Rioja, while the palate reveals an elegant, memorable tapestry of fruit. Vivid and fresh, polished and utterly refined. Presents a different and alluring facet of López de Heredia. Drinking Window 2018 - 2045".
