Top wines to give to fathers who know what they are talking about
Great memorable wines
If money is no object, then here are two suggestions that might even make him cry. It’s not every day you receive gifts like the two wines we have recommend below.
Considered by many to be one of the best reds in the world. An intense, elegant and complex wine with an enormous aging potential. A Paudillac 1er Cru that as well as being great wines, have labels that are real works of art. Artists like Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró, Picasso, Andy Warhol, Francis Bacon and Antoni Tapies are some of the famous names behind these labels. This is a gift that goes far beyond being a nice gesture, and is a gift that he will never forget.
The new great wine from Álvaro Palacios produced in Rioja Baja would be another great choice for fathers who are no strangers to wine. This is a gift with 98 Decántalo points, no less. This year is also characterised by a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed from its youth, so you will be able to drink it together without having to wait.
Great cult wines
Domaine Rostaing Côte-Rôtie Côte Blonde is great example of the work done in the Côte-Rôtie area. A 98 Parker point wines that is guaranteed to go down well. A dense wine, with red fruit and juniper. Good acidity and a long, saline and penetrating finish.
An excellent wine with 96 Decántalo Points and 97 Parker Points from the Italian Piedmont region. A unique Barolo made with the Nebbiolo grape with an elegance and richness that other Barolos can only dream of. Juiciness, floral aromas, cinnamon and pepper species… enveloping, elegant and rich on the palate.
