Gonzalez Byass "Noe" Pedro Ximenez VORS Jerez de la Frontera (375ml)

SKU #1081074 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark To anyone who knows British Christmas pudding, the dense flavors of dried fruit, burnt sugar and spices will be nothing new. However, the sheer density of flavor will be something new to many, as will the stunning acidity at the finish. Inner quote mark (8/2018)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Ripe aromas of apricot, raisin and chocolate offer complex notes of dried cheese and sweat, making this anything but usual and normal. A jacked palate is racy and untamed, with bright acidity that's uncommon for wines this sweet. Chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg and coffee flavors carry an acidic balsamic note, while this remains bold, fiery and blasting on the finish. *Editor's Choice* (MS) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Singed black sesame, rye, buckwheat honey, Black Forest cake and blackberry reduction notes form a large-scaled core, with a viscous texture and a long, palate-coating finish. A light echo of peanut toffee adds just enough cut on the finish. (JM) Inner quote mark (7/2019)

93 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark It takes about three decades to complete the aging process for Noe, which is why this wine has already moved on from the typical PX notes of sweet figs and candied walnuts to include drier, salty flavors. It’s enormous in size, with salinity that intensifies all its many flavors, a classic PX to drink in small sips after dinner. Inner quote mark (10/2017)

91 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The NV Noe Pedro Ximenez Muy Viejos VORS 30 Anos from sun-dried Pedro Ximenez grapes originates in the Nectar solera, and has a final average age of more than 30 years. The sugar level is 400 grams per liter. It has a different character and profile, more vinous than other PXs, it displays a volatile nose, with some minty, herbaceous and balsamic notes, intermixed with incense, ash and tar. The palate is extremely intense, velvety and round, with balanced sweetness, ending with a varnished note that lifts the wine up. (LG) Inner quote mark (8/2013)

K&L Notes

This is very impressive, incredibly old PX from the sherry house that arguably has the widest range of soleras both young and old. The wine shows all the delicious rich dried fruit flavors (prunes, figs, dates, currants), spice and roasted coffee bean nuances of great old PX, as well as a surprising amount of acidity which beautifully balances the very high residual sugar. Yes, this is sweet, but it is as balanced a PX as I can ever remember tasting...and one of the best sweet sherries I have yet to drink. What a deliciously indulgent way to end a meal! (K&L Sherry buyer)
