Lot #1885. Vega-Sicilia Único 1970

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 99 NM.
"Without doubt, the best Spanish wine that I have ever tasted. A very deep black/garnet core: look five rather than thirty-five years old. An amazing, spellbinding nose: blackberry, iodine, blueberry and just a touch of boot-polish. It has astounding definition and vitality. The full-bodied palate is wonderfully balanced, assertive but not over-powering with stunning focus. Notes of blackberry, espresso and raisin and boatloads of glycerin on the quasi-Saint-Émilion finish. This Único has incredible length, a multi-dimensional wine that must have 20-30 years ahead of it. A bona fide legend. Tasted March 2006." Neal Martin, Wine Journal, Mar 2009
Provenance: The Nantais Cellar
Notes: Lightly scuffed capsule, lightly scuffed label.
