Review

Sniffing a glass of Aloers, you might well ask yourself whether a white wine could ever be more elegant than this. Even knowing the expertise and Recaredo's long track record in the world of sparkling wines, the house's still wines, those that Celler Credo have been making since 1990, never fail to amaze us every time.

The winery's catalogue nowadays is extensive, and it's founded on three pillars: the Xarel·lo grape, organic-biodynamic agriculture and infinite attention to detail. The Celler Credo wines are direct, honest and individual, they are wines which shun trends and superfluous effects in order to enable the terroir that gives life to its grapes to express itself without any restrictions.

Aloers, the name in Catalan given in the Middle Ages to peasants who owned their land and weren't required to pay any tribute, is one of the Credo project's spearheads. The grapes with stems are macerated for several hours before fermenting, and afterwards rest on their lees for two months, until becoming a fresh, vibrant and exciting wine, that takes us off to a meadow of yellow flowers and fennel to pick up aromas of pine and resins in the distance; the aromatic element is so subtle and at the same time so complex that it's captivating. Unctuous, moderately saline, and above all other considerations, elegant, the hallmark of Recaredo and Celler Credo.

    Only ok

    The website blurb called it elegant, which is what I'm always looking for, but I found it a bit, well, dull.

    Excelente.

    Vino muy ligero y suave al paladar gracias a su baja graduación de solo 12 grados. Un vino para repetir.

    Un buen vino

    La relación calidad-precio de este vino es correcta. Al principio puede parecer que tiene demasiada acidez, pero no creo que sea así. En resumen, satisfecho con el vino.

    non preferito

    vino dal colore paglierino leggero. scarsi profumi, molto secco ed asciutto al palato, sfuggente. Poco sapido. Non e'di mio gradimento

    Original, distinto, sincero

    Había probado este vino en sus primeras añadas y, de la gama de vinos de Can Credo, era el que menos me gustaba. Con esta añada o algo ha cambiado o mi paladar ha aprendido a apreciar nuevos matices. Con las añadas anteriores me parecía encontrar un fondo nervioso, herbáceo, seguramente por el raspón (imagino, ¡tampoco entiendo mucho!), que ahora no sólo no me molesta en absoluto sino todo lo contrario, encuentro que es un blanco muy original, interesante (¡algunos son realmente monótonos o comerciales!), hace que hables de él, que te detengas a olerlo y a saborearlo con más detenimiento, que esté presente. Lo he regalado a un par de amigos y les ha gustado también mucho, por su originalidad, y buen precio también (a veces para encontrar algo original hay que pagar una fortuna). Bravo.
