The 1973 Don PX Selección is part of a new range of more accessible old wines, not as extreme as the Convento or Convento Selección ranges of extremely old wines. This is slightly lighter in the palate with a little less sugar, some 320 grams per liter. The vineyards that produced these grapes do not exist today; they were on very soft marls soils. The dehydrated grapes fermented between 3% and 9% and then the wine was fortified and today bottled at 17%. It's somehow reminiscent of the 1987, very perfumed and aromatic, a little exotic, with even some minty notes. There are 16,000 liters of this wine, which is available in bottles and magnums. The palate is very concentrated, round, with an oily texture that fills your mouth. This is more elegant, but at the same time it's not as fresh as the 1987. The price is for one 75-centiliter bottle.  - Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate

The bouquet of this reminds me of a century-old Madeira and, although it is as dense as motor oil, breathtaking acidity gives this astonishing freshness for 45 years of age (which is also reminiscent of Madeira). Take your time to explore all the subtleties of this amazing sweet wine, or just savor it with tarte tatin! Drink or hold.-James Suckling
