That James Suckling tastes your wines is a privilege and an opportunity to demonstrate the quality of a wine. This critic, one of the most relevant in the wine sector together with Robert Parker, conducts a wine tasting of Spanish wine every year. He selects more than 800 references among the most prestigious Spanish wineries. And yes, Aldonza Gourmet has been at the last tasting.
The result? A success and a pride to share that two of our wines, the Aldonza Clásico 2011 and the Dehesa de Navamarín 2012, have received a score of 90 points. Suckling only values with 90 or more points the exceptional wines for him. A recognition that rewards our trajectory and that we are pleased to share with you.
