Gutiérrez farewells Jerez, Bierzo and Galicia, awarding them 100 precious Parker points.

Luis Gutierrez, the Spanish delegate for the prestigious magazine The Wine Advocate, led by the guru Robert Parker, said farewell to 2014 with a long awaited number of wine tastings from Bierzo, Galicia, aswell as new editions and Jerez wines.

An awaited series of articles that curiously coincided with the first anniversary of Gutierrez as the Parker strongman in Spain, left us with great news- the admittance of a new Spanish wine to the exclusive 100 Parker points club.


This wine is La Bota de Amontillado 49 “Bota AR”, a very old amontillado from the old wine cellar of Gaspar Florido, rescued from its long slumber by the Navazos Team.

Team Navazos, a project created in 2005 by Jesus Barquin and Eduardo Ojeda, mainly aims to market to the general public a small variety of old Jerez wines from different batches and points in history. In addition, they also produce magnificent finos and manzanillas, and collaborate on other Jerez projects, such as their production of sparkling wine in collaboration with Cavas Colet.

To them we owe the pleasure of enjoying La Bota de Amontillado 49 “Boot AR”, the new owner of 100 Parker points.

A wild wine of high concentration, it presents a disturbingly intense, nuanced nose with a radically saline mouth. An extremely long and spectacular acidity.

The team responsible for a this wine have said that they will never be beaten on such a find, at least at this price!

We sincerely hope that they are mistaken!
