2009 Lopez De Heredia Vina Bosconia Reserva Rioja - The Spanish Table

2009 Lopez De Heredia Vina Bosconia Reserva Rioja

Lopez de Heredia has been one of our favorite wineries since we first had it in Spain over 20 years ago. Owned and managed by descendants of the founder Don Rafael Lopez de Heredia Y Landeta, the winery continues to make wine in the same manner as it has since its founding in the late 1800's.

Maria Jose Lopez de Heredia makes some of what we consider some of the most elegant, complex and balanced wines in Rioja. These are truly a treat and as they age their wines extensively before release they offer up a glass of history as well as enjoyment.
"Very ripe still, with crushed berry and light jam. Vanilla undertones to the fruit. Turns to flowers, both fresh and dried. Complex cedar, tobacco and walnut. It’s full-bodied with round, soft tannins and a flavorful finish. Richer than past vintages, but turns linear and refined at the finish. Drink now." 96 points James Suckling.

"The 2009 Viña Bosconia Reserva shows the ripeness of the very warm and dry year. It's structured and concentrated, quite different from the finesse of the Tondonia. Bosconia has always been more rustic and powerful and Tondonia all about finesse and nuance. There are dark plums and baking spices, a touch of singed leather, the fruit very strong to counterbalance the aging in barrel. This is a powerful Bosconia." 92 points The Wine Advocate
