Martín Códax Albariño Rías Baixas Burgáns 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Appearance: A bright greenish yellow color, with golden tinges. Bright. Aroma: A fruity aroma with a unique complexity where the variety is clearly appreciated, highlighting slight nuances of ripe apple. Palate: A distinct syrup-like taste and sweet character giving an intense, pleasurable sensation. A balanced, rounded structure finish making it particularly sweet.

Peach and melon aromas with some floral notes as well. White peach and spice - full of bright acidity and lots of delicious fruit. Very nice wine.

Nice change of pace from the normal varieties I usually find around the house. Even better while watching the virtual tasting and learning more about this region and this variety. To me, very similar to a Pinot Grigio but refreshingly different. Light and soft on the palate with a tropical fruit profile with a hidden spice that I couldn't quite place. For some reason I pulled a slight amount of anise out of it. Subtle but pleasant finish. Easy to drink and quite enjoyable. Will buy this bottle again.

This was my first Albarino, and still a go to bottle. This vintage has more of a saline quality, but still good balance of grapefruit and honeysuckle. Definitely a great seafood match and summer quencher.

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.

The appearance is a vivid straw-yellow green color, clean and brilliant. The ripe nose of honeyed apricots and peaches soars from the glass. floral fragrance and fresh grass. In the mouth is rich and fruity, with considerable body, outstanding freshness and exuberance. Crisp and lively finish.

There's good intensity in this rich yet nervy Spanish white. It offers flavors of white peaches, figs limes and almonds, generous yet very crisp, and would be a beautiful complement to grilled shrimp or shellfish. A good value.

The Burgans Albarino is a perennial Best Buy in these pages. The 2010 Burgans Albarino delivers notes of lemon, peach, mineral, and a hint of tropical fruit aromas. Round, ripe, and savory with a slightly exotic personality, it is a nicely textured effort that over-delivers in a big way. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

Spanish wine writers are calling 1997 the finest vintage in over a decade for the aromatic, dry whites made from the Albarintilde;o grape grown in Galiciarsquo;s Rias Baixas. Certainly the 1997 Burgans, 100% Albarintilde;o, 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 Albarintilde;o to drink over the next year, particularly with shellfish dishes.

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.
