Talking About the Wines:
-Wine Spectator, July 19’ gave 92 points to 2016 Casal de Armán Blanco.”This white is generous and expressive. The round texture carries bright notes of quinine, heather and grapefruit, with peace and blood orange flavors adding depth. Harmonious.
-A View From The Cellar, May-June ’18 gave 92 points to 2016 Casal de Armán Blanco. “The regular bottling of Ribeiro Blanco from Casal de Armán is composed of a blend of ninety percent Treixadura and five percent each of Godello and Albariño. The wine is fermented and raised in stainless steel and the 2016 version offers up a lovely nose of apple, pear, salty soil tones, a bit of Treixadura’s olive tones and a topnote of spring flowers. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, focused and beautifully balanced, with bright acids, a fine core and impressive length and grip on the zesty finish. The addition of a touch of Godello and Albariño here has given this wine lovely mid-palate depth and complexity. Fine, fine juice.”
-Wine Spectator Magazine, April '17 gave 92 points to 2015 Casal de Armán Blanco. "This firm white delivers weight and focus. Creamed pear and melon flavors, mingle with herb, blanched almond and spice notes, while citrusy acidity keeps this lively. Rich, bright, and balanced."
