This exclusive and limited Brandy de Jerez was reserved for the private consumption of the Lustau family. A sole consisting of only 5 butts that previously contained Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez. The bags of this brandy are replaced with our Brandy Solera Gran Reserva.
Very dark mahogany color, with greenish sparkles. Intense and powerful on the nose. Notes of licorice, dark chocolate, walnuts and fine woods. The caramelized flavors of vanilla, walnuts and almonds are highly evolved. With a deep, enveloping palate and a long aftertaste.
Aging vessels are one of the key elements for the quality of Brandy de Jerez. And not only because they are American oak wood boots - whose porosity and capacity to transfer elements to the distillate is the most appropriate - but, above all, due to the fact that these vessels have previously contained, at least for three years, some of the extraordinary wines of Jerez: fine wines, chamomiles, fragrant, amontillados, Pedro Ximénez, etc.
Precisely the type of casing chosen by the winemaker will serve to mark differences between the different Brandy de Jerez brands. Thus, the Fino vessels allow the production of paler brandies than those from vessels that have contained Amontillados or Olorosos. The Brandy de Jerez resulting from aging in boots that Pedro Ximénez would have contained, will be the most tame and dark.
The system used, from Criaderas y Soleras, has been a genuine element of Jerez winemaking since the 18th century, originally associated with the need to satisfy market demand on a constant basis and whose uninterrupted practice in the area would later determine the birth of wines, vinegars and brandies with specific characteristics, derived precisely from the realization of the mixtures (bags and sprays) inside the aging vessels themselves.
