Heiner Lobenberg über:
Pazo de Barrantes Gran Vino Albarino 2020


Lobenberg: Reinsortig Albarinho aus Rias Baixas? Ich konnte es beim ersten Genuss kaum glauben und ich bin immer noch fasziniert, dass ein Rioja-Spezialist wie Murrieta (Ygay Gran Reserva) so atemberaubende crispe, salzig spannende Weine in die Flasche bringt. In dem Laden muss ein/e heimliche/r Weißweinmagier/in zu Hause sein! Vom Ygay Gran Reserva über den Capellania bis hin zum Pazo Barrantes ist das aufregend. Dieser Albarinho besticht mit Mandarinen, Orangenzesten, gelbem Steinobst, gelben Blüten und Steinsalz. Feuerstein dazu und extrem pinkanter, salzig süßer steiniger Nachhall, fast wollüstiges Frohlocken entfährt dem Genießer. Nein, das ist nicht puristisch mineralisch wie Zarate, nicht elegant und glatt wie Senoranz, das ist ein ganz anderer Stil. Ein Albarinho, der auch üppige Speisen begleiten kann. Thunfisch, Stockfisch oder Kalbsfleich oder üppige Muscheln. Der Wein ist wirklich grandios und eine Geschmacksorgie. 95-97/100


Suckling über: Pazo de Barrantes Gran Vino Albarino

-- Suckling: Focused, ripe, mineral and intense, with lemon rind, stones and sea salt. Very tense and integrated, with tangy, bright acidity chiseled to the round, textured palate. An exceptional, transparent yet serious albarino here. Irresistible now. Drink on release or hold. 95/100


Wine&Spirits über: Pazo de Barrantes Gran Vino Albarino

-- Wine&Spirits: Vicente Cebrián Sagarriga, proprietor of Marqués de Murrieta in Logroño, traces his family’s history back to this domaine in Salnés. His team farms 30 acres of albariño in eight parcels, and their vineyard work came together in this latest release, the best vintage we’ve tasted from the estate. Fermented and aged in stainless steel, with 15 percent in acacia barrels, it’s immediately ripe and luscious; the flavors seem to emanate from the structure imparted by that small contribution of wood and the pale, salt-cod savor of the lees. The scent of apricot blossoms and white peach builds layers of flavor that just keep going. Delicious with roast scallops or most anything else from the sea. 95/100


Decanter über: Pazo de Barrantes Gran Vino Albarino

-- Decanter: The lovely Pazo Barrantes estate has been the home of the Creixell family since the 15th century. (They also own the Castillo Ygay estate in Rioja, with its Marqués de Murrieta wines.) Its 12ha of vineyards were replanted in 1982, and the winery opened in 1991. This wine spends two months on lees; 85% is then aged in stainless steel for seven months and 15% in 225L acacia wood barrels. It spends 16 months in bottle before release. Sarah Jane Evans MW: Opulent and perfumed with golden fruit. The palate is bold and intense with ripe fruit subdued by the oak, giving richness. A complex and individual wine. Pierre Mansour: Delightful blossom fruit and floral notes on the nose. Very elegant, with incredible length and real finesse. Beth Willard: Delicate honey and floral aromas. The palate is perfectly rounded by the oak, which lends a gentle sweetness and spice. Peach and apricot on the finish with a touch of mango. 95/100


Tim Atkin über: Pazo de Barrantes Gran Vino Albarino

-- Tim Atkin: Elena Cores used a little wood on this wine for the second time in 2020, fermenting 15% in acacia barrels and the remainder in stainless steel. Musky, perfumed and layered, with some of the richness of the vintage, it has peach, pear and subtle cinnamon spice flavours and a classic Salnés Valley undertow of granitic freshness and bite. 2023-28 95/100


Parker über: Pazo de Barrantes Gran Vino Albarino

-- Parker: The 2020 Gran Vino Albariño, the second vintage after the transformation, is a representation of their property, the eight pagos, or vineyards, they have in their 12 hectares of vineyards plus one hectare they rent. The grapes were destemmed and the must let to settle to ferment in stainless steel for 60 days, followed by two months with lees and seven months after being racked off the lees, then a small percentage was put in acacia wood barrels for a short time to search for more complexity, structure and depth. They found that acacia is a wood in harmony with Albariño, even when newer. The bottles were kept for a further 20 months before being released. It has 13.5% alcohol, a low pH (3.26) and notable acidity (7.2 grams of tartaric acid per liter of wine), and it has finesse and elegance. It's sharp, with great aromatic intensity, less explosive and balsamic than the previous year, a remarkable mid-palate and a long, clean and precise finish. 78,533 bottles and 1,596 magnums were produced. It was bottled in June 2021. 94/100


Penin über: Pazo de Barrantes Gran Vino Albarino

-- Penin: Leuchtendes Strohgelb. In der Nase reifes Obst, blumig, trockene Kräuter und Steinobst. Im Mund geschmackvoll und frisch. Schöne Säure. 94/100

Weingut über: Pazo de Barrantes Gran Vino Albarino

-- Weingut: The grapes used to elaborate the wine come from Pazo de Barrantes estate, with 12 hectares divided into 8 different plots and located around the winery in the Salnés Valley, heart of Rías Baixas. The soils of the estate are granitic, with sand on the surface and the average age of the vineyard is 40 years. The harvest was carried out in 20 kg crates from September 10th to 15th 2020. After an exhaustive selection, the grapes are destemmed and pressed gently and slowly in a pneumatic press. The must is clarificated by flotation to ensure greater aromatic purity and then fermented at 10oC in stainless steel tanks for approximately 60 days. After fermentation, it remains 2 months with the fine lees in the stainless-steel tank. 7 months in stainless steel tanks and 15% in acacia wood barrels. A wide nuanced nose with ripe yellow plum and medlar fruit, subtle notes of bergamot and verbena underpinned by a fine balsamic background. Vibrant palate, well-balanced, fresh and textured. It shows a long and splendid finish. “A deep and full of nuances vintage that confirms the path began in 2019” María Vargas, Technical Director.
