Equipo Navazos Pedro Ximenez #76 Montilla Moriles

SKU #1425092 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A classical PX aged in the style of Jerez, more oxidative than the ones produced in Montilla-Moriles, the NVLa Bota de Pedro Ximénez 76 "Jerez" has 370 grams of residual sugar and 16% alcohol after being aged for an average of 30 years in old 600-liter American oak casks, where some alcohol evaporated, as it was fortified to 17.5%. This was already bottled eight or nine years ago, with number 11. It has notes of carob beans, cocoa, licorice and toffee, not too dry, a little more oxidative and more developed. 1,800 bottles produced.  (12/2017)

K&L Notes

This old and pure Pedro Ximénez from Jerez is not new, since in 2008 we bottled a first release of this wine under no. 11 of the La Bota series. That one and the present edition have been the only two commercial withdrawals ever made from this solera. La Bota de Pedro Ximénez 76 “Jerez” is an excellent example of a pure pedro ximénez—that is, never blended with oloroso or any other wine—produced in the Jerez style: fortified initially to 18.5% alc. and aged in butts filled only to 5/6 of their capacity, in order to enhance the complexity of oxidative notes. With time, the alcohol percentage has dropped to 16% alc. The wine was sourced from a 12-butt solera in the Sacristía of Bodegas Real Tesoro filled in 2000 with a very old PX that had been carefully selected from the stocks of a by then disappeared small producer in Sanlúcar. Since then it has remained untouched, except the small release in 2008 for La Bota de Pedro Ximénez 11 “Jerez”, and by the time of this saca its average age was getting close to 30 years. This sweet wine can be enjoyed on its own or side by side with traditional Spanish desserts (pestiños, torrijas, mantecadas, crema catalana, tocino de cielo…) or chocolate-based creations. Serve cool so that the temperature inside the glass evolves from 12º to about 16º C. This is an almost indestructible wine that will grow with bottle age, especially once a bottle has been opened. The cork stopper must of course be carefully used for storage.
