Flot sort farve med gyldne toner - eksklusivt og specielt for vine lavet på Pedro Ximénez.
Det er ikke nødvendigt at ryste glasset, for at opdage det store aromatiske potentiale i denne vin. Meget stor aroma og en bred vifte af dufte såsom tobak, kakao, lakrids og rosmarin. Nuancer af sorte oliven, ferskensirup, arabisk kaffe, vanilje og kanel kommer også frem.
Den er herlig kraftig mundfuld, men samtidig elegant, let at nippe til, og med en lang eftersmag.
Serveres afkølet i likørglas. Selv om vinen er en fremragende dessert i sig selv, kan den også være en perfekt partner til blå ost, kager, is og årstidens frugter.
95 point & GOLD - Decanter (World Wine Awards 2017):
"Heady, enticing nose of treacle, molasses, dried banana, coffee, figs and walnuts. Immensely concentrated palate of buttery toffee, spice, aniseed and refreshing acidity on the long, leafy finish."
94 point - Robert Parker/The Wine Advocate:
"Each year they select a number of single vintage, sweet PX wines to be bottled, the first of which (besides the young wine) is the 1987 Don Px Gran Reserva in 2016 - a wine aged in American oak casks for some 28 years. These wines are almost indestructible, so the drinking windows are mostly academic. This showcases the classical aromas and palate of an old PX from Montilla, strong notes of dark chocolate, dried figs and plums, raisins and sweet spices; the dense, thick and persistent palate where the 380 grams of unfermented sugar are not noticeable, as they are balanced by good acidity that also gets concentrated by age. This is probably the densest of all the wines I tasted today, and there is a distinct, perfumed, almost floral note here (is it violet pastille?), which makes it extremely attractive. It's also the most drinkable of all these old vintages, very balanced within its sweet profile, with marked flavors (also licorice and black olives) that stay in your mouth for one minute. Exotic and exuberant. This is incredibly young and lively, and very good value for the age and quality it delivers. 52,000 liters bottled in 750- and 375-milliliter bottles."
