Don PX 1955: Rare and unique Sherry
 

Dear Wine Lover,

 

The Don Px Convento Seleccion 1946 from Toro Albala you have bought from me has achieved what only very few sweet wines in history ever did, reaching the exclusive club of the 20 pointers of Rene Gabriel and also the club of the 100 points from Robert Parker! But there is another vintage of this great Sherry of Toro Albala which gets very close to this laudatory scores and which you should own and compare with your great Don PX Convento 1946. With a score 98 points by Robert Parker this is the second highest rated Sherry in history, Don PX Convento 1955.  Curious to try also this 63 year old  “complex, rare and unique” super Sherry at best price

 

We are glad to offer you some few quantities of half, standard and ultra-rare Magnum bottles of one of the best Spanish sweet wines on the market, all received directly from the producers cellar. Not only the quality but also the presentation is unique, coming in single beautiful wooden cases in numbered bottles (half bottles available only in owc of 6 bottles). Only 10’400 bottles and 165 Magnums have been produced of this incredible wine aged for 63 years which has the potential to mature for more 100 years.

 

Located in the village of Aguilar de la Frontera, in the heart of Montilla-Moriles, Bodegas Toro Albalá was founded in 1844 by Antonio Sanchez Prieto in a town named La Noria. In 1922, José Ma Toro Albalá restored the former electric power station of Aguilar where he moved the winery, and this is where is it still today. Montilla-Moriles is sherry country and is renowned for its unctuous and heady Pedro Ximenez, a unique style of sherry that is explosively rich and deep in colour, despite being produced from the white Pedro Ximenez grape. To create this fantastic concoction, the grapes are sun-dried into raisins before being pressed and fermented. Due to the incredible concentration of the juice, the wines are notably sweet but also wonderfully fresh.

Robert Parker 98 Points: One more single-harvest, old sweet wine, the 1955 Don PX Convento Selección was bottled in September 2014 and it had been aged slowly in very old American oak barrels and getting thick and concentrated through evaporation. It's 320 grams of sugar are (partially) compensated by 6.5 grams of acidity. It has a nose and palate of chocolate-covered candied orange, spices, molasses. I'd say the dominant aromas in the nose are dark chocolate. It's very dense, developing notes of very concentrated licorice and balsamic, mint, camphor and evolving notes of petrol with time. Complex, rare and unique.
