94The Wine Advocate

...very good acidity...herbal notes, hints of fennel and bay leaf with just a creamy and smoky twist. It's very tasty, marked by the soil, with a dry, stony sensation in the palate.

93Vinous / IWC

Fragrant, mineral-laced citrus and orchard fruit scents and flavors; floral and succulent herb nuances add complexity. At once fleshy and energetic in style, offering bitter citrus pith, pear and honeysuckle flavors that are sharpened by a gingery flourish. Closes with sharp clarity and strong tenacity, leaving a dusty mineral note behind.

91+ John Gilman

...delivers a fine bouquet of tart orange, pineapple, a lovely base of soil, orange peel, dried flowers and a bit of amphora dustiness. On the palate the wine is bright, zesty and full-bodied, with a fine core of fruit, good mineral drive, a lovely girdle of acidity and lovely focus and grip on the long and complex finish.

17Jancis Robinson

Really rather glorious! Mild honeycomb and lanolin. Masses of acidity and body. Great stuff! Long, racy – massive impact.


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.
