  • 91 Points - The Wine Advocate

    The 2015 Louro always contains some 8% Treixadura while still maintaining Godello as the main grapes. It's sourced from their own vineyards in the municipality of O Bolo averaging 20 years of age. The grapes had a short maceration in the press and the clean must is transferred to 3,000-liter French oak vats where it ferments without any added yeast. The wine matured in these same containers with the fine lees for four months. He has a 9,000-meter plot of Treixadura, which adds freshness, especially in the warm vintage. There is an extra degree of precision and freshness compared with the 2015 Bolo, and intensity too. The flavors are clean and very focused, persistent thanks to the pungent acidity. It stays in your taste buds for a long time. This is a superb showing for this bottling. Killer value too!" - Luis Gutierrez
