Pair with

Chocolate Mousse with Smoked Nuts

Starring: Pedro Ximénez

Part of the trio pairing menu from Copa Jerez 2015 Russian participants Timur Abuzyarov and Ksenia Karpenko, this Pedro Ximénez pairing features a rich chocolate mousse topped with smoked nuts and accompanied by a sorbet made of raspberry and basil. Our dessert pairing is a 20 year old Solera Especial PX Don Guido from Williams & Humbert accompanied by chocolate mousse, smoked nuts & raspberry basil sorbet. In this dish like in a great musical composition the duet is played by two instruments: bitter chocolate which plays "cats & dogs" with rich PX and refreshing juicy raspberry & basil sorbet. We have created a classical pairing that satisfy even the most spoiled dinners.

This 20 year old PX is so diverse & luscious that it can be served by just the tea spoon.

Pedro Ximénez & Gastronomy

Serving Tips

Pedro Ximénez should be served slightly chilled, at between 12 and 14ºC, though the younger wines may be served at lower temperatures.

It is a dessert in itself, though combining exceptionally well with desserts based on slightly bitter chocolate, with ice-creams and blue cheeses of great intensity, such as Cabrales or Roquefort.

Pedro Ximénez quick reference

Always serve slightly chilled

Serve between 12 & 14º C in a white wine glass.

A dessert in itself

A perfect way to finish a meal. Pairs perfectly with desserts that aren't too sweet.

Style of glass

In traditional wide rimmed catavinos or in a white wine glass.
