Editorial Reviews for Albariño Rias Baixas Burgáns
Flowery, pollen, peach, green plum, a little waxy, touch of seashell – vibrant acids on entry, ripe and round feeling with an almost lush quality to the the peach and apricot fruit, even a touch of apricot pit adding a nice bit of tension in the mouth, touch os mineral spice on the finish. Solid – 87pts
Soft pear fruit, leafy fruit on the nose with notes of carambola, carnations, and a touch of candlewax – Bright and juicy in the mouth with succulent pear and peach fruit tones in a lean, crisp frame. Gains a nice sweet edge on the mid-palate and finishes with a touch of lime peel. 86pts
As seen in the Baltimore Sun.
Medium intensity tropical fruit aromas of papaya and stone fruits (peach) on the nose. A hint of sweetness on the palate's attack with a dry finish, it's lightly flavored but quite refreshing with good acidity and citrus zest.
The nose is smokey melon and peaches with a similar palate with some apricot thrown in. The finish is sweet and nicely acidic.
crisp, clean, and refreshing. palate extends to lemon, varying citrus fruits, med+ acdity.
crisp clean wine, fresh lemon, varying citrus notes, very refreshing
citrus, pear- some floral. Bright and lively. Nice.
Wouldn't drink this wine by itself, but goes very well will sea food. Great summer wine. 86 pts.
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.
Rich yet vibrant. Pear and almond flavors are focused and clean in this firm white. A lively accompaniment to food.
Haunting bouquet of Anjou pear, tangerine, lilacs and banana. This wine is all silky finesse, with an underlying power and a slight mineral tone that allows it to pair well with shellfish.
Drier than many Albariños, the Martin Codax is a crisp, medium-bodied, food-friendly white. Bursting with juicy apricot, peach and apple flavors, the wine is tempered by a palpable mineral base, making it a perfect accompaniment to any seafood or chicken dish.
The rich texture of this big white is kept lively by a fresh acidity, allowing the ripe pear, butter adn honeyed flavors to linger lushly on the finish.
Winemaker Notes - Has an attractive straw-greenish yellow color, with ripe lemon nuances. Bright and slightly sparkling. Stands out for its special intensity and elegance, its aroma reminiscent of damp, dewy fresh herbs with a perfume of semi-ripe apples. A fine sparkling sensation on the palate, with a complexity of tastes denoting the freshness of vegetation in the valley and the essence of the varietal. Persistent, full-bodied and tasty...a classic.
Codax really got it good in 2007. This is one of this co-op's best-balanced, easy-to-like bottlings we can remember. The bouquet is clean as a whistle, with pear, apple and slate. Graceful on the palate, with citrus and green-apple flavors. A little lime carves shape into the long finish.
