    Fedellos do Couto & Peixes

    Sinds 2013 zijn Curro en Jesús samen met Luis Tobada gestart met hun Fedellos do Couto project. De wijngaarden waar de opbrengsten eerst van werden verkocht wordt hier nu wijn gemaakt. Op de zeven hectare grond die zij bewerken staan soms wel acht tot negen druivenrassen door elkaar! Het gebied Ribeira Sacra staat bekend om zijn prachtige natuur. Scherpe kliffen, riviertjes en beekjes en flinke rotspartijen. Later komen daar wijngaarden in de DO Ribeiro bij op grote hoogte. Karakteristieke wijnen met karakter en puurheid!

    90% younger vines (20 years old), the rest from other plots. 100% Bastardo, which is the same as Trousseau. Expressive sappy red fruits nose is floral and leafy with red cherries. Lively, supple palate is light, detailed and expressive. Juicy and a bit spicy with some tannin and good acidity. A distinctive wine. 94/100 Jamie Goode

    I first tasted the 2018 Bastarda in a blind tasting just after bottling, and I was blown away. It's a delicate and ethereal red with lots of light, perfume and energy and tons of inner strength, personality and charm. 2018 was not an easy harvest: It had been wet and cold, and they had to work a lot. But they are extremely happy with the results, and they think it's their best vintage to date. The production of this wine is inspired by the Trousseau from Ganevat, using grapes from Ribas do Sil and the banks of the Bibei—two different zones of Ribeira Sacra—with younger and older vines on different soils and perhaps around 10% of other varieties (Brancellao y Caíño) mixed in the old vineyards. They do a very soft and delicate vinification with full clusters, an extended maceration of some 60 days and an élevage of seven months in used 300- and 500-liter French oak barrels. The result is stunning, floral, perfumed, complex, super drinkable from early on. They were able to produce some 6,000 bottles of this gem, and it deserves a space in your cellar. It was bottled in August 2019. 95+/100 Luis Gutiérrez

    Fedellos do Couto is now consolidated as one of the quality leaders of Ribeira Sacra. But as is often the case, they sell the wines without appellation of origin due to the enormous bureaucratic problems the controlling body was creating, rejecting the wines because they don't follow the standardized style they are used to. And Fedellos do Couto is not the only winery with this experience; Envínate and Raúl Pérez had suffered the same problems, and Laura Lorenzo and Sílice were never part of the appellation for the same reason. If you consistently kick out the quality leaders from the appellation, something must be wrong. Given the success of their red Cortezada in 2019, they have started producing a new 100% Mencía from the banks of the Bibei River, one of the subzones of Ribeira Sacra. But for now I tasted the four 2018s, one of the finest vintages in the region, and for many young producers, the best in their career. It was a cold and rainy year, with about three weeks of delay in the vegetative cycle. The summer, which is key, started cool and wet but finished dry and warm, which helped with the harvest of some of the best fruit ever. Something to get excited about! They currently produce around 25,000 bottles per vintage.
