Alvarez de Toledo Mencia Roble 2015

Descendientes de J. Palacios Bierzo 'Petalos' 2017
1  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 93 "2017 was a very unusual year in Bierzo, and here they started harvesting the 21st of August, when they had never started harvesting in August. There are more white grapes in the 2017 Pétalos del Bierzo, almost 10%, not because they wanted to lower the alcohol, because the alcohol

Raul Perez St Jacques 'Ultreia' Mencia 2017
93  Decanter 
Wine Advocate 93 "The clean, floral and 2017 Ultreia Saint Jacques comes mostly from old vineyards from different soils in Valtuille and Villadecanes fermented in stainless steel and oak vats with part of full clusters and matured in used barriques for one year. It's produced in a fresh and very

Descendientes de J. Palacios 'Corullon' 2015
95  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 95 "Ricardo Pérez Palacios told me his favorite overall vintages for Bierzo are 2001, 2012 and possibly 2015, because he sees them as very complete years, even if 2015 didn't have as perfect conditions as 2001 and 2012; the 2015 Corullón is a perfect example of that, a really pretty

James Suckling 96 "Sexy, stylish and complex Bierzo with a wealth of dark graphite and stony aromas, pepper, baking spices and dark berries. Succulent palate with a deep and juicy core of pitch-perfect, ripe and spicy black cherries and blackberries. The tannins are immaculate. Long and regal.

Bierzo Tinto 'La Vitoriana' Mencia 2014
95  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 95 "My favorite red of the 2014 vintage was the 2014 La Vizcaína La Vitoriana, which was very expressive, floral and elegant, with filigree and detail. There is a lot of depth in the palate, greatly balanced with very fine tannins and a long, tasty finish. This is the oldest vineyard

La Vizcaina Vinos 'El Rapolao' Mencia 2016
95  Decanter 
Wine Advocate 95+ "The cool and elegant character of the El Rapolao plot seems to have been amplified by the weather conditions in the 2016 La Vizcaína El Rapolao. Pérez does not own all the vineyards, so sourcing can sometimes vary within the same vineyard, and since 2016 it comes from two old

Descendientes de J. Palacios 'Corullon' 2013
95  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 95 "If I was impressed with the 2012 vintage, the 2013 Corullón is otherworldy, especially for the vintage. The wine is tight and solid, a little exotic, extremely balsamic with lots of smoky notes and aromas that reminded me of a cypress, developing very classical aromas of pear and

Descendientes de J. Palacios Bierzo 'Petalos' 2014
93  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 93 "The 2014 Pétalos del Bierzo was already up for tasting as they sell the wine quite quickly even if the volumes are not small, but the wine had only been in bottle for one week and it might have been a little closed, especially when compared with the aromatic 2013. However, the

Raul Perez St Jacques 'Ultreia' Mencia 2016
90  Wine Spectator 
Wine Spectator 90 "This plump red shows good depth, with ripe flavors of black cherry and red plum supported by vanilla and licorice notes in a plush texture. Well-integrated tannins and fresh acidity keep this balanced, in a fruit-forward style. Drink now through 2022. 3,000 cases made.—Thomas

Graillot & Perez 'Encinas' Mencia 2016
94  Wine & Spirits 
Wine & Spirits 94 "A collaboration between Antoine Graillot from Crozes-Hermitage and Raúl Pérez, this mencía comes from a range of parcels, with a strong focus in Rapolao, one of Pérez’s star vineyards in the Valtuille de Abajo area. It’s rare for mencía in Bierzo to taste this fresh, with so much
