“I also had the chance to revisit the 2015 Albariño so I could complete the trio of 2014-2015-2016 in one sitting. They consider 2015 one of the most balanced vintages of the last decade, to which I can only agree. I had already tasted it very young last time and it had shown among the best 2015s from Galicia. Some time in bottle has done it good, but it's still a serious and somehow closed vintage, moving toward more complex notes of quince paste and yellow plums. But it's the palate where the wine is like an electric shock: pungent flavors, some iodine notes developing already, minerality and a salty finish. This should develop nicely without any efforts for 5+ years.”
