Review:

Cordoba and the Montilla region boast two highly-esteemed golden gems: olive oil, their liquid gold, and the naturally sweet wine, Pedro Ximénez, their black gold. A mahogany colour that is almost black and with an astonishing density, the PX sweet wines from Pérez Barquero are made in accordance with the dictates of tradition, using white grapes very rich in sugars and harvested late to achieve greater concentration, and put in the sun to dry on straw matting laid out in areas known as paseras (pasas are raisins). Exposed like this to the sun, the grapes dry out and lose two thirds of their mass on becoming totally concentrated. After careful pressing, the ageing begins, which will be the distinguishing feature of the bodega’s four PX wines, with five years spent in the solera system of criaderas (sets of barrels) for the Gran Barquero.

Pérez Barquero asserts, convincingly and with all good reason, that Pedro Ximénez wines are the pride of Andalusia’s tradition, and Spain’s in general, in dessert wines, and a universal wine-making heritage. Their Oloroso is a dessert on its own, and dry, while their Pedro Ximénez is a sweet par excellence, pure nectar proving the best accompaniment to ice cream, fruit and chocolate.

The Gran Barquero Pedro Ximénez is amazingly viscous in the glass; it is a pleasure just to see how slowly the tears flow down on swirling and how they stain the glass. Their aromas are typical of Pedro Ximénez grapes turned to raisins: elegant aromas of figs and prunes in the foreground, followed by much more subtle notes resulting from the slow ageing: honey, coffee, exotic wood and a saline touch. Its heightened aromatic intensity leads us to expect a powerful wine on the palate but the gentleness of its entry comes as a surprise; it is a very sweet wine, with great structure, but not in the least cloying, and on the contrary it is fresh with the alcohol very well integrated. A dessert to enjoy in little sips.

It is fascinating to discover this wine’s versatility: it is wonderful to have with ice or sparkling water as a refreshing drink and thus tone down its sweetness, or else to accompany blue cheeses (Cabrales, Roquefort, Gorgonzola...), foie gras, stuffed aubergines, orange fruit salad, various wild mushrooms, and especially with desserts, made from puff pastry, crema Catalana, dark chocolate and cheesecakes made with chocolate, or to bring out the flavour of acidic fruits such as pineapple, strawberries and melon; although it is undoubtedly best when poured over vanilla ice cream. It is also a suitable condiment for certain sauces, to add that contrasting touch of sweetness and fragrance to vinaigrettes and pickled foods.

You can open a bottle of Gran Barquero Pedro Ximénez and keep it in the fridge for a long time with no problem, and therefore drink it gradually; not only does oxidation have no effect but it also improves in bottle. Another amazingly generous generoso wine.

Un PX equilibrado, goloso, agradable al paladar y que no se hace pesado de tomar. Un acierto si buscas un vino con solera de gama media
