"What has to be one of the most elegant wines produced at this address, the 2016 Belondrade y Lurton is not only one of the best whites in Rueda but a true pioneer in the world of modern quality white wines from Spain. It's pure Verdejo from different vineyard plots in the village of La Seca that has been getting fine-tuned, especially when it comes to the integration of the oak with the fruit. 2016 was not an easy year, and they seem to have done a brilliant job. It's subtle, insinuating, nuanced and fresh, with focused flavors and aromas and a very fresh palate with terrific balance. It should age harmoniously in bottle. Kudos to the Belondrade team for a truly great Rueda! 98,927 bottles were filled in July 2017. Drink: 2018-2025. 93+ points

Didier Belondrade doesn't stop. While not many will be surprised by his wines, which he has been producing in Rueda since 1994, you might like to hear that he is still chasing some more old vines. In 2016, he bought two more plots averaging 50 years of age. Coincidentally, 2016 seems to be one of the most elegant and balanced vintages in their history..."
