2017 Raúl Pérez La Vizcaína "La Vitoriana" Bierzo

SKU #1479319 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 La Vizcaína La Vitoriana has depth and power, inherent to the vineyard, a cool site that behaves well in a warm year like 2017, but in 2017 I still prefer El Rapolao. The fruit is a little darker and riper without excess (it's all relative when you compare, and sometimes comparisons are tedious...), as the cooler exposition takes the warmer weather better. It's textured and serious. 6,300 bottles were filled, as the north-facing exposures like this escaped the frost of the 2017 spring. It as bottled in May 2019. (LG) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

Decanter

Outer quote mark Perez left the family business in 2001 and launched the Ultreia range in 2005, with rapid success. As a result of the demand, he says, ‘I did not want to put up prices, so I started the Vizcaína project that wasn't parcel-based and could supply greater volumes.’ He selected four of his family's vineyards that he most liked. The 0.9ha La Vitoriana is the oldest (130 years, own rootstocks) and the most complex. Shaped like a halfpipe in profile, it has three different orientations. The facing slopes are only separated by 80m but harvest takes place two weeks apart. (SJE) Inner quote mark (2/2019)

K&L Notes

Luis Gutierrez writes: "Raúl Pérez produces a couple of reds from the Gredos Mountains in a joint venture with La Tintorería wine shop from Madrid...These wines now play in the premier league of Gredos."
