Winemaker Notes

Fine and elegant, with aromas of rich fruit, licorice, spices, and mineral touches. In the mouth strong and elegant, tasty and balanced. Good quality tannins and a lingering finish, with well-integrated hints of oak.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

Forceful and fully oaked, with dark, rubbery, minty black fruit flavors. The palate is a bit rugged but solid as granite. Tastes toasty and roasted, with black fruit and licorice flavors front and center. Rolls along well on the finish, showing lemon zest and clove notes.

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

The 2007 Capricho de Landaluce is sourced from 80-year-old Tempranillo vines and fermented in 500-liter French oak casks for 18 months. It has a "juicy" black cherry and cassis scented nose that is modern and pure in style. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannins and crisp acidity. There is fine weight on the fleshy, silky finish that caresses the mouth with succulent dark plum and cassis. This is a finely made, modern Rioja that should age well. Drink 2013-2020.

Bodegas Landaluce
Building on decades of family wine-growing tradition, in 2000 Goyo L. Landaluce decided to embark on a new phase, founding Bodegas Landaluce to make his own wines. Bodegas Landaluce is located in Laguardia, at the heart of the Rioja Alavesa region; at the feet of the Sierra de Cantabria mountain range, on the road leading to the ancient settlement of La Hoya, in an area known as Piñuelas.

Chenin Blanc

View all wine

Responsible for some of the world’s highest quality white wines, Chenin Blanc doesn’t always get the recognition it deserves. Unquestionably at its best in its birthplace of the Loire Valley, Chenin Blanc can do it all—from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still or sparkling. Perhaps Chenin Blanc’s greatest asset is its ever-present acidity, maintained even under warm growing conditions. Chenin Blanc is also widely planted in South Africa, where it is occasionally labeled as “Steen,” and to a lesser extent in California.

In the Glass

Chenin Blanc ranges from austere to richly sweet, with aromas of McIntosh apple, honey, beeswax, jasmine, hay, and quince. When grown in warmer regions, Chenin Blanc develops richer, tropical-fruit flavors, such as pineapple and melon, as well as ripe stone fruit. Often these wines carry some residual sugar.

Perfect Pairings

Cool-climate Chenin Blanc has the structure, austerity, and chalky acidity to work with antipasti or unadorned seafood, such as oysters and shellfish. Off-dry styles work well with the sweet-and-sour nature of Thai and Vietnamese food.

Sommelier Secret

There are several appellations throughout the Loire Valley devoted to producing different styles of Chenin Blanc. Vouvray, Saumur, Anjou, and Savennieres are known for excellent dry and off-dry wines; Vouvray, along with Montlouis, Bonnezeaux, and Quarts de Chaume, produces glorious late-picked sweet wines whose high sugar levels are offset by Chenin Blanc’s hallmark acidity. Sparkling Crèmant de Loire, Saumur, and Vouvray provide delightfully affordable and flavorful alternatives to Champagne.
