Montilla-Moriles, Don PX Gines Liebana, Toro Albala - 1937

  • Appellation: Montilla-Moriles
  • Domain: Toro Albala

The hard-to-believe 1937 Don PX Ginés Liébana, whose grapes must have been picked in the middle of the Spanish Civil War, belongs to the Ginés Liébana range. Like many older wines, it has lower alcohol, only 14%, while the concentration of sugar has grown to 410 grams per liter. At this age, I was expecting something more complex and dense, and I ended up going back to the 1980 for nuance and detail. Don't get me wrong, this is phenomenal, and if you're not used to this style of wine, you'll be blown away. But it felt relatively simpler, with intense aromas of grapes and a dense and oily palate dominated by those same notes. I'm often amazed at how little correlation age and quality seem to have in these old PX wines... This is a limited edition of 1,200 bottles and 24 magnums. It was bottled in September 2018.

Viticulture

Gines Liebana is the name of the painter who designed the old labels for this range of wines from Toro Albala.

Oenology

The grapes are harvested at the end of August. The best bunches are selected and transported in crates to a sandy area where they are laid out in the sun to dry for 10 days (45-50°C during the day and 25-35°C at night). The bunches are then crushed with very powerful presses, and the must is put into vats. The alcoholic fermentation takes place until about 9° of alcohol. The wine is then matured to about 17° and then aged for a long time in large American oak barrels.

Suggestions for accompaniment

To be drunk on its own, as a dessert wine or with a large Havana.
