Pazo Baión has one of the most singular and spectacular vineyards in the global wine sector. Our estate’s 22 hectares are home to our oldest vines, with an average age of more than 40 years, planted in granitic soil with different orientations.
This privileged location in the heart of the Salnés Valley enables us to obtain a quality Albariño grape, which gives our Albariño wines great authenticity.
The “Pazo Baión” Albariño wine reflects the maximum quality of the Albariño grape cultivated in a singular vineyard, under the concept of “vino de pago” (estate wine), in which its ecosystem is clearly expressed in the wine.
The “Pazo Baión” Albariño wine has a straw-yellow colour with greenish reflections. It stands out due to its intense varietal perfume, with white-flower (orange blossom and jasmine) and fruit aromas, with a predominance of citrus fruits (grapefruit, mandarina) against a background of white fruit (apple, pear). On the palate, it is refreshing and balance, with a fine structure, enveloping, mineral, with a long palate and a very aromatic, persistent finish.
PAZO BAIÓN “GRAN A GRAN”
Halfway up the slopes of Pazo Baión’s old vineyards, we cultivate a plot of Albariño grapes that feature, year after year, the optimum conditions for developing a “noble rot,” produced by the Botrytis Cinerea fungus, in morning conditions alternating with dry, sunny afternoons.
By means of a manual harvest, collected grape by grape in successive selections, with a meagre production of partially dried grapes, we obtain this singular wine.
Pazo Baión “Gran a Gran” has a golden yellow colour. On the nose there is a predominance of floral aromas and honey nuances, as well as crystallised fruits (orange) and apricot jam. On the palate, it is refreshing with sweet sensations, ending in a long, soft palate.
PAZO BAIÓN “VIDES DE FONTÁN”
The origins of Pazo Baión go back to the 16th century on the estate known as Casa de Fontán, where, according to written testimonies, vines were cultivated as early as 1731, white vines that were most probably Albariño grapes. The present-day vineyards of Pazo Baión are the descendants of those mythical vines, perfectly adapted to the singular surroundings that give the wines their strong personality. This wine is made with grapes from the highest, most expressive plots; its long life in the bottle stands out among its other exceptional sensorial characteristics.
Bright yellow colour with greenish reflections. It has an outstanding varietal character, with the presence of white-flower (orange blossom and jasmine), stone-fruit and citrus-fruit aromas, with integrated toasted and spicy hints. On the palate, it is refreshing and balanced, with a find structure, oily, enveloping, mineral, with a long palate and a very aromatic, persistent finish that combines aged and varietal hints.
