Gran Duque d'Alba Brandy Solera Gran Reserva

Gran Duque d'Alba Brandy Solera Gran Reserva 750ML      
Sku: 4693

Gran Duque D’Alba was first launched in 1945 and named for the Great Duke of Alba, Fernando Álvarez de Toledo y Pimentel, an important historic history responsible for ennobling the House of Alba. Today, Gran Duque D’Alba is known for exceptional brandies made in the traditional Solera method.

Tasting notes
The gold-highlighted mahogany colour and the complexity of the aromas – wine esters with distinctive balsamic notes – remind us of the brandy’s lengthy presence in wood. The palate is medium-dry, smooth and full, with burnt undertones and hints of vanilla, followed by a long, pleasing finish.

Rating
 Wine Enthusiast 96 points (Aug 2008)
The sumptuous bouquet smells of old leather, old books, toasted marshmallow, pipe tobacco, prune Danish, dried fruit, salted butter and caramel cream. Entry is hugely luscious, succulent, ripe and sweet; the midpalate is concentrated, ripe, fruity, sherry-like and caramelized. Concludes balanced yet sweetly honeyed. A fat, glossy masterpiece. — P.P. (8/1/2008) — 96-100

Wine maker notes
Aged under the Solera System for over 12 years in Sherry infused American oak casks.
