Luna Beberide Godello 2017

91 International Wine Review Floral, white melon and fennel on the nose. There’s good volume and weight in the mouth with fennel on the palate again along with white orchard fruit. Quite glycerin in the mouth with superb mineral like extract. Quite a refined wine. Rich extract on the back of the palate and on the finish.

90 JamesSuckling.com A light, bright and juicy array of green melon and lighter apple fruit. Chalky and crunchy palate. Drink now.

90 Vinous Media Pale gold. Fresh pit fruit and honeydew aromas show good clarity and are sharpened by suggestions of fennel and dusty minerals. Sappy and energetic on the palate, offering juicy Meyer lemon, peach and melon flavors and a hint of succulent herbs. Finishes chewy and long, showing a hint of chalky minerality and very good persistence. (Raised on its lees for six months in stainless steel tanks.)

Luna Beberide Godello 2018
91 (VM) 89 (RP)
Score Publication Review Copy
91 Vinous Media Vivid straw-yellow. Aromas of fresh pear, melon and tangerine are energized by a suggestion of chalky minerals. Sappy and concentrated, yet nervy as well, offering bitter citrus pith, pear skin and honeysuckle flavors that become spicier on the back half. Shows very good depth and clarity finishing long and taut, with persistent mineral and floral qualities. (All stainless steel.)

89 The Wine Advocate There are a bunch of wines from 2018 already bottled, among which was the 2018 Godello from Luna Beberide. Such recent bottling tends to be harsh for whites, which tend to show reductive and reminiscent of sulfur, so you often have to guide yourself by the palate, which revealed a wine that follows the path of freshness of 2016, with clean flavors and citrus freshness. Give it a few more months in bottle. 50,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2018.
