Will Stanley Delectable Pro

Nose is immediately opulent, with candied orange, almost marmalade, and a hint of petrol early doors (this passed by the second day). Reads like a cross between Sauternes and old Burgundy. This is tremendously rich and hedonistic, an old-school, opulent wine with firm tannins and a honeyed edge. By the second night, a vibrant, lively acidity emerged and brought the wine to life on the finish. Shockingly complex, this is a wine that provides intrigue with every sip, and yet seems endless. Without a doubt improved by 2+ hours decanting. An outrageously good accompaniment to good quality Serrano ham. A very youthful wine to drink now, or over the coming decade. Very memorable.

Another selection from the Lumia-Haro taster’s dozen. Never had a white rioja before. Very interesting: very well done. Full-bodied and creamy showing tropical and coconut. This is not for the meek or inexperienced. Serious oenophiles only.

As others have noted, LdH bottles can vary significantly. Thankfully one doesn’t break the bank stashing a few away. This 2008 is on the funkier side, slightly corked and oxidative with petrol and lemon notes...still enjoyable, but not at the heights these can be...

Forgot how wildly exciting this wine is: Flinty salty nutty oily minerality with a creme brûlée kicker.
