97The Wine Advocate

...flowery and perfumed...aromas of white flowers rather than violets, the citric notes are finer, like blood orange zest... The palate shows prodigious balance and harmony, like a tightrope walker moving steadily across the line, it dances on your tongue with the lightness and elegance of a ballerina. Ethereal, without being light...

94Vinous / IWC

... An intensely perfumed bouquet evokes black and blue preserves, incense, violet and floral oils. Fleshy, palate-staining boysenberry and black raspberry flavors are enlivened by smoky mineral and floral pastille nuances and a hint of allspice. Closes on a gently tannic note, with superb clarity, length and thrust, leaving sweet dark fruit notes behind.

17Jancis Robinson

... The nose has flowers, sour cherries, pungent spices and touch of creaminess...long finish and seamless texture...


Spain, Castilla-Leon, Bierzo

Bierzo is small, with about 9,500 vineyard acres, and centers around the city of Ponferrado. Located on the same northeastern plain as most of Castilla y Léon, it nevertheless enjoys a climate somewhat similar to Galicia, which means that Bierzo gets more rainfall and milder winter weather than other parts of the region. The primary grape here is Mencia, which is thought to be related to Cabernet Franc. Garnacha Tintorera and Cabernet Sauvignon are planted in small amounts. White wines are made from Godello (Verdelho), Malvasia and Doña Blanc and Palomino. Though white wines are produced much less than reds, Godellos are gaining international popularity as full-bodied, floral white wines. The appellation status for Bierzo was awarded in 1989.
