Alexander Jules Amontillado "Sin Prisa 1/42" Sanlucar de Barrameda (375ml)

SKU #1329250 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 There is a new and exceptional bottle of very old Amontillado, of which I tasted the November 2016 bottling--the first "saca"--the NV Amontillado Sin Prisa 1/42 (sin prisa means "no rush"). It's sourced from the "bota punta" of a solera of 42 butts that contains wine that easily exceeds 50 years of age. It's a sharp and vertical Amontillado of Sanlúcar character: like a razor, pungent, saline and marine, with notes of low tide, saltpeter, iodine and rusty iron. This is truly exceptional and I would say a very good value. Only 440 half bottles were filled in September 2016. (LG)  (12/2017)

K&L Notes

Our latest and greatest in old, impeccably curated Amontillado from importer and winemaker Alex Russan, this is in fact a bota punta from a top quality Sanlucar solera of extremely old Amontillado. It is lovely, with spicy aromatics and a steely, nutty, deeply satisfying palate that speaks to the quality of the solera and its Sanlucar origins. Exquisite wine.
