The apperance is bright, clean and with golden reflections. Citric and fruity (green apple) nose, with an important balsamic note (aromatic herbs…). The varietal aromas are perfectly balanced with the lees and bakery notes created during the aging. On the palate, the creaminess from the lees is prominent and it has a living bubble which is very well integrated, providing it with freshness and persistence.

The wine has been kept on its lees for three months before its production using the traditional champanoise method. The secondary fermentation in bottle has been done slowly and controlling the temperature in order to obtain a smaller bubble size perfectly integrated into the wine. It aged on lees for thirty months before the disgorgement date, providing the wine with more aromatic complexity which favoured again the bubble integration.

Bodegas Martín Códax was founded in 1985 and was named after the most known Galician troubadour whose medieval poems, the oldest of Galician-Portuguese language with the original music, are preserved. In the poems, the troubadour sings to love and to the sea of our coastline.
