A really great brandy. Complex and beautifully rich flavors and aromas. Very smooth. Better than the various cognacs I've been drinking at 1/2 to 1/3 the price! Made me upgrade my snifters to very large two hand balloons so as to more fully appreciate the quality.

Top of the line Spanish brandy. Very smooth and flavorful. Actually smoother than many XO cognac brandies for 1/3 the price.

Notes on the Gran Duque d'Alba Brandy Solera Gran Reserva 750ML

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.

Wine Maker Notes Distillation in stills at 65º C to obtain the excellent holandas. The extraordinary characteristics of this brandy are the result of a painstaking selection of the materials it is made with. It begins with the selection of excellent Palomino and Airen white wines; early distillation and the methods employed are decisive to the final quality of the holandas, which are aged in casks of American oak that have previously been aged with oloroso sherry. Then they enter the traditional system of Criaderas y Soleras in the 10th criadera, progressively going down until they reach the solera cask. The amount of brandy taken out is carefully controlled in order to ensure that the brandy maintains the same age at all times.

Technical Notes The name Jerez, which is the origin of the english word ‘sherry’, identifies the region as the heart of the sherry-producing zone.A number of factors make Jerez suitable for the production of sherry. First and foremost, the soil has three variants, each imparting its own character to the individual styles of wine. The snow white 'Albariza', which is high in chalk and light in texture, produces the lightest styles of sherry from the Palomino grape variety. 'Baros' is high in clay with a little chalk, while 'Arenas' is sandy; these soils are best suited to growing Pedro Ximenez and Moscatel grapes.

Equally important is the climate, which is influenced by both the cooling effects of the Atlantic Ocean and the warmth that originates in the eastern plains. The moist winds from the sea bring the temperatures down – not only assisting in the preservation of vital acidity in the sherry grapes, but also providing natural air conditioning for local wine cellars. This contributes to a slow and gradual maturation of the wines. The 300 days of sunshine which the region receives on average each year are also important in terms of achieving optimal ripeness for the grapes.

Food Pairing Best served at room temperature. Serve in a brandy snifter neat or on ice. Makes for an excellent end to a meal with dessert, cheeses, or as a cordial.
