Mission Codename Like a White Virgen

Godello!!! Could easily be our favorite new grape around here. There’s so much to love to it.

Another wow wine. Was 60 bucks upon release, and so dang worth it too as it can easily compete with Grand Cru Burgundy and such for purity, intensity, and complexity. Can’t still believe we slashed it down to $35, with 94 points and other rave reviews, this we guarantee will become one of your top wine discoveries… at least in 2022. Trust us.

Godlike Godello! Venerable Valdeorras!

A grape, and a place that has come together in the heart of Galicia. Valdeorras is a high valley at 1,000+ feet elevation that’s just north of the Portuguese border in that Atlantic-influenced northwestern corner of the Iberian Peninsula. Note that s decade ago, Eric Asimov for The New York Times wrote “even if Godello has not yet reached the level of white Burgundy, it makes sense to compare it to Chardonnay, the grape of white Burgundy.”

Well guess what Eric, Godello has finally reached that level, it’s obvious in this STELLAR example!

With Spain’s oldest institution CVNE taking the helm here and assigning their top winemakers, mainly Contino’s winemaker Jorge Navascues overseen by Iñaki Sanz, no doubt these are world-class wines. As Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate well put, at “this relatively new estate in Valledeorras things have stepped up appreciably while prices remain extremely fair given their quality… An increasing number of bottlings are slowly being issued, focusing on single parcels, and the style leans toward elegance rather than heft. It’s clear that CVNE is strongly committed, so this is definitely an estate to follow closely.”

Don’t miss out on this highly limited tiny production (just 6 barrels made!) Wine Spies exclusive, even though we scooped up all that’s imported!

94 Points – James Suckling

“So much gunmetal and flint to this. Full and layered, yet so tight and compact. Steely… and stylish. So much going on here. Drink now.”

93+ Points – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“This is serious, austere… harmonious. It’s a white with energy and finesse, more insinuating, nuanced and subtle. This is already impressive, but it should develop nicely in bottle. This was the first time they vinified this plot, which is impressive. Drink 2020-2024.”
