Martín Códax Bierzo Cuatro Pasos 2008
An excellent co-operative established in 1968 with over 550 members. These members have 420 hectares of vineyard. Martín Códax wine pays homage to the troubadour of the same name who lived in this region in the 13th century. It is said that he was born and lived in Galicia. The Mencía grapes are grown in their Bierzo vineyards, while the Albariño grapes come from their Rias Biaxas. This wine has a morello cherry red colour with violet tints. On the nose it is of medium-high intensity with dominant varietal aromas of red fruits and a touch of oak. It is well structured with firm but rounded tannins which make it elegant and balanced on the palate. The finish is full of vibrant varietal fruit.
Martín Códax is a winery that was founded by a group of Spanish winemarkers in 1986. It is in the capital of the Salnés Valley, Cambados, in the Denomination of Origin "Rías Baixas" of Spain.
External Reviews for Martín Códax Bierzo Cuatro Pasos
Coming from 80-year-old vines grown on the hillsides of Bierzo in northeastern Spain, this wine sees only two months of oak and possesses many layers of flavor and complexity. We tasted black plum and cherry notes, hints of tobacco, and a touch of bittersweet chocolate.
