Massard Audacia Godello 2015 - March 2018 Decanter review
Les 3 Amis is the project of three friends (“amis” in French), all specialists in and passionate about wine. Dominique Roujou de Boubée and Laura Montero are enologists and together they provide the viticulture and winemaking skills. Their passion for Galicia, and their belief in the potential of the region, encouraged them to move to Galicia to live close to the terroir. Franck Massard is the third ami: a trained sommelier, now winemaker focusing on sharing and distributing great wines from cooler climates.
Grapes are 100% de-stemmed and gently pressed in a pneumatic press. After clarification the must ferments at 18ºC for 8 days. This wine undergoes alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. It is then aged on lees for 10 months in stainless steel and spends 9 months in bottle before release.
Aromatically complex. A combination of white flowers, white bone fruits (pear, apple compote), citrics and a hint of dried fruit. On the palate is clean, complex and fresh provided by a good acidity.
Two dishes that work well with the Audacia Godello are shrimp ravioli with saffron sauce and grilled seabass with organic lemon.
