Lot 654 is born of granitic, alluvial soils a stone’s throw from the Ria de Arousa Estuary in the heart of the Salnés Valley of Rías Baixas, long known as the birthplace of Albariño and its greatest expression. Obviously I can’t name the producer, but they have some of the oldest plantings of Albariño in the region and you can be assured that the name is ubiquitous amongst Spanish sommeliers. Year after year, their Albariño has been rated 90+ by Galloni’s Vinous, Wine Enthusiast, and other top publications.
Lot 654 is their highest offering available in the US. Produced from some of the best free-run parcels and aged a few extra months on the lees, it's a terrific candidate for aging. Compare at $25.
Discover a new varietial
Since albariños are relatively scarce stateside, this is a great opportunity to try a new varietal. I concur with the other reviewers in that this bottle is more mineral, than fruit forward. If you are a sav. blanc fan and want to try something different, try this. It will pair perfectly with most seafood. I can't find a similar bottle near me for less than $20, so this is a great value. Wish I bought a few more.
All that's missing is a view of the Salnés Valley!
You can close you eyes and really get a sense of place with Lot 654. With any seafood, but particularly ceviche, this Albariño delights! The minerality is such a refreshing contrast to the more fruit-forward whites I usually drink. doubt I'll keep any long enough to see how it ages.
My new favorite
Wonderful minerality, goes great with shellfish.
Fresh and minerally
Lovely Albariño, fresh and minerally, a delight with seafood, especially shrimp. And though the notes say you can age it through 2024, I prefer this grape young...the latest year if possible (and that's what this was when I drank it. And at a great price.
Wow - a fantastic albarino, especially at this price point. We had it with a fish dish the other night and it was a perfect complement. I always prefer an albarino with a nice minerality and this was perfect.
Crisp, great value
Crisp white wine is always delicious and this Albarino doesn't disappoint either. At the price, definitely worth it!
This is a perfectly clear, balanced and crisp white wine with a nice mineral finish - I'm only sad I discovered it at the END of the summer instead of before!
Another great discovery. Very enjoyable sipper; nicely balanced. Would definitely buy again.
This has become our favorite white offered by CH. We love the vibrant citrus notes balanced with a distinctive mineral finish. Yet another wine that encouraged two more friends to join CH. An exceptional wine and value.
Extraordinary value - a perfect summer wine that is remarkable for its crispness, citrus notes, and price.
