New wine with 100 Parker points : Alvear Pedro Ximenez 2011

 TAGS:100 points, the highest score of Robert Parker’s scoring, has been given to the Alvear Pedro Ximenez 2011, a sweet wine from Montilla - Moriles that stunned the American critics.

According Luis Gutierrez,

Alvear’s 2011 Pedro Ximenez de Anada is the most amazing Pedro Ximenez I have ever tasted. It may also be one of the first to be vintage-dated. The grapes were hand-harvested in September, and then allowed to dry in the sunshine until they began fermentation, which is ultimately arrested by the addition of spirits. The wine spent six months in large American oak prior to being bottled. It is an amazing effort that looks like molasses. Notes of macerated figs, chocolate and caramelized tropical fruits emerge from this full-bodied, unctuously-textured wine. While sweet, it has enough acidity to balance out its richness. This astonishing 2011 Pedro Ximenez will last as long as any reader of this newsletter.

Want to try a wine with 100 Parker points without traumatizing your pockets?
