Toro Albala Don PX Gran Reserva 1999 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
Curiously enough, the 1999 Don PX, which has 17% alcohol and 402 grams of sugar, feels lighter and less concentrated than the 2002 I tasted next to it. And the wine seems more perfumed, even with a floral touch that at times reminded me of Moscatel, and it has some sweet spices, vanilla and cinnamon. It's tasty, showy and easy to drink, velvety and seamless, with a soft texture. 12,000 bottles and 20,000 half bottles were filled at different times, but these wines evolve at a very slow pace and there should be no difference between bottlings. The price is for a 750-milliliter bottle.--Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate
The Gran Reserva 1999 is an elegant wine, elaborated with Pedro Ximénez grapes harvested in mid-August and laid under the sun for 7 to 9 days to concentrate all their sugars. After the press, it was left to rest for 12 months and, when the period came to an end, it was stored in American oak butts to age for over 20 years.
Don PX is Toro Albala’s signature wine. Each one of them is taken care of with exclusivity, from the harvest to the raisining, obtaining a unique personality.
Dark mahogany and beautiful movement in glass.
Raisined fruits (dates, plums, dried peaches) with memories of liquorice, coffee and roasted coffee, and an orange citric sensation.
Sweet entry perfectly balanced with the acidity and a light bitter touch, making it fresh despite the old age and sweetness
