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.
Crisp and refreshing
After a long day, a glass of this wine sets the tone for a luscious dinner. One can also serve the wine with dinner. It will work and that's the test.
New to me
After discovering this wine, truly enjoy it, with or without food.
Crisp and refreshing!
A terrific Albariño
After a trip to Spain, and drinking lots of Rías Baixas Albariñoz, we were eager to taste this. We were not disappointed. This is a great example of this style of wine, which is hard to find in the U.S. Its more mineral than fruit forward, very refreshing, and goes well with fish. Definitely worth buying, and the price is right.
Great Crisp Wine!
This is a very crisp citrus wine. I recommend ordering to drink on the patio this summer!
Love this wine
Great value. perfect with seafood. Going to get another case.
A delight year round
I love this wine - its perfect for summer, but I consume it all year, as it goes well with 'game day' food, cheese, and pizza. I hope CH continues to stock it long term.
well worth it
My wife was looking for something different from the Chards she typically drinks. Tried this wine and bought a case. Very refreshing and peppery, but complex enough to stand up to most dinners. Highly recommend.
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.
