External Reviews for Albariño Rias Baixas Burgáns
Soft and round, with bright tropical fruit and a nutty minerality. 100% Albariño from Galicia's Rías Baixas zone, this aromatic white wine is named for a hill called Burgans, which overlooks the Atlantic.
Ripe and luscious, this rich white from Spain is redolent of pears, peaches and melons, full-bodied yet clean and refreshing. The lively fruit makes an impact; the wine stays balanced and harmonious. More than worth the modest asking price. Drink now.
This vivid Spanish white offers a vibrant mix of vanilla oak and ripe tropical fruit, yet maintains a crisp profile, with a core of citrusy acidity. It has intensity without weight, a great balance of sweet and tart, and a long, clean finish. Drink now.
Now almost a classic, the latest vintage in the brown bottle has a bright floral, fruity nose with medium richness and vibrant flavors of ripe pear. Nice acidity keeps everything fresh and clean, while the long, light, elegant finish keeps you coming back for more. Excellent as an aperitif or with simple seafood dishes.
The best way to understand these dry, fruity, aromatic white wines made from the Albarino grape in northwestern Spain, is that they are somewhat reminiscent of Viogniers made in France. The 1996 Burgans possesees an intense, apricot, peachy, and fruit cocktail-scented nose, excellent ripeness, medium body, crisp acidity, and a fresh, lively style. It requires consumption over the next year.
A new vintage, but the same great Albariño! Hailing from the Galicia region of Spain on the northwest Atlantic coast, it's no wonder that this white matches up to your most scrumptious lobster, oyster, scallop, and shellfish recipes. It will also pair well with chicken and some Asian dishes with a mild spice. The nose is refreshingly floral with scents of sweet lilacs and the reminder of a coming spring. It's a light to medium bodied wine with a mouthful of fruit. You'll notice some light apricot and a little lime flavor as it slips over your tastebuds, but the low amount of acid makes this less crisp and fruity than Sauvignon Blanc. A slight cream hints at the fullness of this grape's potential. A good choice for anyone who's interested in Sauvignon Blancs, Viogniers, or Sèmillon blends as the fruit is appealing and the depth is satisfying.
Spanish wine writers are calling 1997 the finest vintage in over a decade for the aromatic, dry whites made from the Albariño grape grown in Galicia's Rias Baixas. Certainly the 1997 Burgans, 100% Albariño, is an extremely aromatic (peach, apricots, flowers) wine with a fruit cocktail-like display of flavors. Crisp, pure, sexy, and attractive, this is a delicious Albariño to drink over the next year, particularly with shellfish dishes.
