92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Based on 100% Godello that spent 8 months in French oak, the 2017 La Revelia showed beautifully, with a touch of maturity in its mulled pear and pineapple-laced aromatics as well as richer, medium to full-bodied profile on the palate. As with many top Godello, it has a terrific balance of richness and freshness, with a bright spine of acidity, integrated oak, and a dry, classy finish. It's going to shine on the dinner table and has the ability to evolve for another decade, if you're so inclined. Drink: 2020-2030. (8/29/20)"
92 points Wine & Spirits: "[$45 list] This godello developed the structural intensity of a red wine through the heat of the 2017 season. Fermented and aged in temperature-controlled French oak barrels, the fruit and mineral presence of the wine is substantial enough to hold the focus: Rather than smelling like oak, it smells like rock and like vibrant yellow citrus, lasting with golden depths of flavor. Savory and intriguing, this has the structure to age. (Aug 2021)"
91 points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): "Their top white Godello from Bierzo is the 2017 La Revelía, produced with fruit from a warm, ripe and dry year. It fermented in 500-liter French oak barrels, where the wine matured for eight months. Despite the ripe year, the wine has kept its poise and balance, and the oak feels very integrated. It has good freshness and a lively palate with focused flavors and a long finish. 5,000 bottles produced. Drink: 2020-2023. (Jun 2020)"
91 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "Limpid yellow. Fresh citrus and orchard fruit aromas develop floral and mineral nuances as the wine opens up. Bright and focused on the palate, offering juicy pear, Meyer lemon and melon flavors that deepen through the back half. Finishes long and silky, with a mineral flourish and a lingering lemon note. Drink: 2021-2025. (Jun 2021)"
