Castell del Remei Blanc Planell Costers del Segre 2010

Castell del Remei Blanc Planell Costers del Segre 2010

  • A little-known Spanish superstar!
  • Refreshing and accessible, but with a 'serious' edge.
  • Super-refreshing on its own - an ideal fish partner too!

If you're disillusioned with Spanish white wine, think again. This beauty is assertive and delicious, oozing bags of fresh, crisply intense character. White peach, green apples and fennel characters abound, thanks to the wonderful local Macabeo grape. It finishes with a flourish of pithy citrus and almond - the 'serious' edge that we talked about - and screams out for expertly-prepared fish dishes of all kinds. Try now.

Andrew Baker talks about Castell del Remei Blanc Planell Costers del Segre.

"Intense and fruity nose with hints of exotic fruits, apple and white peach."

Manuel Cusine

Winemaker: Manuel Cusiné

Winery: Bodegas Castell del Remei

Country: Spain

Bodegas Castell del Remei was designed and built in 1780 with the purpose to make aged wines.

The drinking experience: On approach, this unique creation of theirs appears pale yellow with metallic highlights. There is a varietal note of fig leaves followed by floral aromas and hints of fennel, aniseed and dill, with a touch of citrus. That's the beautiful Macabeo grape. Smooth and balanced on the palate, with a subtle bitterness that adds length. Slightly acidic lingering finish, with notes of under-ripe fruit.
