Valdeorras

A Coroa "200 Cestos" Godello '15

"200 Cestos" is one of the greatest white wines of Galicia.

Before I opened the store, I had a two-year stint at Sam's Wine & Spirits. Working with the Spanish wines, I frequently saw a customer who was always searching for wines from Galicia. His uncle was the head of a local co-operative in Valdeorras, a region in the Galician interior. As I was about to embark on another journey to Spain, he put me in touch with his uncle.

I'll never forget that day, as my new Spanish "uncle" and I, went door to door in Valdeorras, tasting through several local wineries. At the time, we went to a new winery, that just was getting started, called A Coroa.

A couple years later I was speaking with my friend André Tamers, owner of De Maison Selections, the top importer of Spanish wines into the US, and he was telling me about a new producer he was starting to work with called A Coroa.

Now over 15 years later from that first visit, A Coroa has emerged as one of the top producers in Galicia, and arguably the best producer in the region of Valdeorras.

"200 Cestos" is the top wine of A Coroa. The Godello comes from a high elevation vineyard, with 65+ year-old vines. For those in the know, this is the same vineyard as Rafael Palcios "Sorte O Soro." And that wine costs double what this wine does.

Previously this wine was fermented and aged on the lees in tank. With the 2015 vintage, 200 Cestos spends some time in large oak (foudre), and as a result there is a real extra dimension to the wine.

Beautiful notes of grapefruit, plum, orange peel and fennel. This is a medium bodied white, that builds with minerality. The length is unbelievably long, a sign of a truly great wine.
