The Mengoba La Grand Cuvée Godello 2015 is an exciting white wine and a true treasure of the Bierzo region. From the first taste, this wine surprised me with its fresh and vibrant density, along with a fantastic harmony that elevates it to another level. It is a wine born from hard work in pursuit of perfection, starting with the selection of the best Godello grapes from the oldest vines, mixed with Mencia vines.
After selection, the wine ferments and ages in a 600-liter barrel of the highest quality before undergoing aging on the lees for 4 years. It is then bottled without clarification or filtration, still presenting some natural sediment that contributes to its unique evolution. The wine still rests for another year, polishing any remaining edges before being ready to be enjoyed.
This super gastronomic wine is capable of accompanying various dishes, from seafood to spicier dishes.
Its entry into the mouth is strikingly vibrant, with hints of chamomile and peach, along with a light toast from the barrel and citrus notes. All of this merges into an explosively long and greedy finish.
This Godello from Bierzo is truly a piece of jewelry made with attention to detail by Gregory Pérez, with great aging potential.
