1962 Vega Sicilia Unico Gran Reserva, Ribera del Duero, Spain - 750ml
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 100 Points
The 1962 Vega Sicilia possesses quite astonishing purity on the nose with candied dark cherry fruit, eucalyptus, kirsch and a touch of cinnamon. This is what you might describe as a -perfect bouquet-. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin, seamless and satin-like in texture: an Unico that is shimmering with untrammeled greatness. Youthful, vivacious and utterly compelling, this is a profound wine that even after four decades is surfeit with precocity. Undoubtedly, this must be one of the greatest Spanish wines to have graced this planet. 87,600 bottles produced. (8/2012)
James Suckling - 96 Points
This has so much cigar tobacco, cedar and mahogany character. Crazy aromas of orange peel and tea. Full and firm. Fresh and clean. (6/2013)
