CASAR DE BURBIA GODELLO BARRICA

GRAPE: 

Godello.

APPELLATION:

Bierzo DO.

VINIFICATION:

Harvesting and crushing are both carried out by hand. This special wine has been aged for twelve months on its lees with the  appropriate “bâtonnages” in 500 litre French oak casks.

TASTING NOTES:

Clean, brilliant colour. Complex and elegant bouquet. Of medium intensity, its aromatic power is surprising with a predominance of spices, flowers and white fruit and bone, on a faint mineral and citrus base. Aging on the lees is noticeable on the palate, giving it good structure with volume and syrupiness. Balanced acidity, the citrus and mineral sensations return in the after-taste. A wine which succeeds on account of its body, volume and creaminess, its freshness will always leave one wanting more.

FOOD PAIRING:

Galician Scalops, Roasted chicken with smashed potatoes, Foie-gras, rich Seafood, prawns, fish and rice dishes.

RATINGS HISTORY:
