Gonzalez Byass Jerez-Xeres-Sherry Palo Cortado 12 Anos Leonor

Gonzalez Byass Jerez-Xeres-Sherry Palo Cortado 12 Anos Leonor

Sku: P60000

The elegance of Palo Cortado at its best. Complex and intense with notes of dried fruits, vanilla matured wood. Refined character. Chill slightly and pair with red meats and game.

Tasting notes
Aged for over 12 years it has fine aromas of wood, vanilla and almonds. The palate is nutty and perfectly integrated with a long finish. Ideal with mature cheeses, good ham and nuts but also stands up well to red meats.

 Wine Spectator 91 points (Oct 31 2015)
A lovely version, with notes of date, ginger, green tea and singed almond racing along, carried by a thread of salted caramel through the finish. There are sweet hints here, but this is very tightly focused and just on the dry side in the end. Drink now. 1,232 cases made.-JM

Other text
Palo Cortado: The mystery, the legend, the "rebel" wine of Jerez. Leonor Palo Cortado is the benchmark of this category. Deep and intense aromas of roasted nuts, dried fruits, hints of vanilla and a deep but soft aromas of rustic, matured wood. Long elegant finish. Pair with game, roasted meats or my favorite roasted Iberico pork with a vanilla sauce. Oscar Garcia Wine Buyer
