Editorial Reviews for Martín Códax Albariño Rías Baixas Burgáns
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

crisp clean wine, fresh lemon, varying citrus notes, very refreshing
The nose is smokey melon and peaches with a similar palate with some apricot thrown in. The finish is sweet and nicely acidic.
Wouldn't drink this wine by itself, but goes very well will sea food. Great summer wine. 86 pts.
nose of light sea water made me think of how awesome it would pair with broiled scallops. I had it with beer battered cod filets. the mouthfeel is nice and oily with lots of tart acid. i get lemons and lemon peel for days. just a gorgeous wine by itself or with fish. prototypical albarino. this may even age for a year due to the acid, but i recco drinking it ASAP.
I agree with the comment about the "sea-water" nose. Only medium acid, but still crisp because of the full body and slight citrus flavors. Drank this with pesto/tomato/parmesan crostini...good, but would be even better with grilled seafood (would not be a good match with a creamy sauce.)
Tropical flavors in slightly sweet well balanced wine. Nice
External Reviews for Martín Códax Albariño Rías 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.
Burgans is the slightly sweeter, arguably more "international" Albariño from the Martín Códax co-op, and it's defined by ripe peach and melon aromas, fresh yet full-bodied fruit flavors, and a smooth finish. One of the best values in Albariño.
Burgáns is supposed to be the "commercial" wine from the Martín Códax co-op in Salnes, but we like it almost as much as the Códax itself. It's round and ripe, with some heft to the nose and body. Flavors of nectarine and macerated white grapes are tasty, and the finish is secure and substantive. Drink right away and enjoy.
WA 90 Pts - Tasting Notes - A bright greenish yellow color with golden tinges. Fruity aromas and complexity highlight nuances of ripe apple. On the palate, a distinct sweet character gives an intense, pleasurable sensation with a balanced and rounded structural finish.
The 2009 Albariño is light gold-colored with a lovely bouquet of white flowers, hazelnut, peach pit, and mineral. On the palate it is surprisingly complex for its bargain price with a viscosity bordering on opulence. If you enjoy Albariño, this is one to buy by the case. Burgans' Albariño is an annual Best Buy in this journal but the superb 2009 vintage in Rias Baixas has carried it to new heights.

Light gold. Spicy, assertive aromas of orange peel, white pepper and anise, with a dusty mineral overlay. Fresh and tangy in flavor but gentle in texture, with good depth to the orange flavor. A subtle licorice note and tangy minerality arrive on the finish, which lingers impressively. This is an outstanding value.
Burgans Albarino a custom cuvee chosen by importer Eric Solomon is a candidate for Best Buy in the Albarino category. Medium gold-colored the wine has excellent honey mineral orange marmalade and peach aromas and flavors in a just off-dry format. Drink it over the next 12-18 months with grilled salmon tuna and roast chicken.
