Characteristics of Casar Godello

Casar Godello is a monovarietal white wine of the Godello variety with ageing on lees, produced by the Casar de Burbia winery.

Casar de Burbia is a family winery located between the municipalities of Carracedelo and Posada del Bierzo. In the 1980s, contrary to what most producers did, the winery began acquiring old and unproductive vineyards of the native Mencía variety in the area, especially in Valtuille de Arriba. This made it possible to conserve part of the areas plant heritage, and has served to boost it as well as the culture of the Mencía.

Casar Godello’s vineyards are located in Valtuille de Arriba, at an altitude of 600 metres. They are more than 30 years old, and their soils are of slate and quartz with traces of clay in the subsoil. The predominant climate is Atlantic.

Casar Godellois harvested manually into 10 kg boxes, which allows a first selection of bunches in the field. Once in the cellar, a second manual selection is made. Afterwards, a cold film maceration is performed at around 12 ºC to extract aromas. Then the must is drained and the pastes pressed. Fermentation is carried out at a low temperature of 14-16 ºC, to extract and better preserve fruit aromas. This lasts for 20 days. Lastly the wine is aged for 8 months on its own fine lees. Finally, the wine is stabilised to prevent future precipitates and is bottled.

Casar Godello is a fresh white wine with volume in the mouth and creaminess, that can accompany all kinds of seafood and fish dishes.

Tasting notes Casar Godello

Casar Godello 2018 is complex and elegant. It has medium to high intensity aromas. White stone fruit predominate, together with floral, somewhat citric and mineral notes. On the palate it is creamy, unctuous and with a good volume. Its acidity is balanced.
Extreme weather included low rainfall and summer drought with high temperatures resulting in an unusually early harvest. The most important weather events occurred on April 28th with a late frost that destroyed the crops of El Bierzo valley, and also the hailstorm that fell days later on May 9th, which destroyed part of the vineyards on the slopes of Corullón. The harvest was brought forward to unusual dates due to the high temperatures. Some winegrowers started to pick grapes the last days of August.The wines of this vintage have a good balance between structure and acidity. The fast ripening of the grape caused a small decrease in acidity that makes the wines accessible from the first vintage.
A vintage where the Atlantic climate has ruled over the continental.  The lightness of this type of climate, together with the perfect sanitary condition of the vineyard, has given rise to an excellent vintage from this area.  The year began with typical temperate and rainy winter weather.  What differentiated the year was the intense rains that fell between the months of April and May, conditioning the vegetative development of the vine.    The summer was then noticeable for being warm and dry, the perfect combination for the perfect grape.
The 2015 vintage was characterised by low rainfall. The lack of water throughout the year brought the vegetative cycle of the vine forward and it was not until days before the harvest that it started to rain considerably. This caused the grape to hydrate and lead to a somewhat fresher vintage than what it initially seemed. The continental character that this vintage looked like it was going to have was mitigated by the rain before the harvest, balancing the phenolic ripeness, qualifying the vintage as excellent. The wines of this vintage have an excellent balance between structure, acidity and texture in the mouth. A vintage that can age perfectly.
The 2014 vintage was characterised by a marked Atlantic climate. The rains and the cold in autumn prevailed, leading to a somewhat warmer than usual winter. Spring started mildly, with a two-week delay in budding and the rains were sporadic, with a total water accumulation of 1,000 mm that gives the vintage its Atlantic character. In July and August, temperatures rose and rainfall was scarce, leaving the grapes to ripen in an excellent way and giving the vintage a little more structure. At the end of August, they suffered high temperatures, and in September, the traditional rains made the harvest quite difficult. The wines of this vintage are characterised by their great complexity. A wine with an Atlantic and fresh character and a structure provided by the warmer end of cycle. Wines with a long life ahead.

Designation of Origin D.O. Bierzo

Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.  Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.
