New Release: Raúl Pérez's 2017 La Vizcaina de Vinos...
06 May 2020

Since the inaugural 2011 vintage, Raúl Pérez’s La Vizcaina de Vinos has established itself as arguably the highest quality, best value single vineyard range in Spain. Each wine reflects an individual terroir within the historic village of Valtuille de Abajo, the heart of the Bierzo region, and is produced from small plots and incredibly old vines of up to 140 years old and elevations that range from 500m to 650m, each with a different exposition and soil composition. The reputation and insatiable demand for the La Vizcaina wines belies their modest price tag, and they have quickly become some of the most compelling, traditional old world wines in the Justerini & Brooks portfolio. Produced with a philosophy of minimal intervention, they are fermented with wild yeasts and whole clusters in wooden vats with no temperature control, and are aged purely in neutral barrels of varying sizes. Raúl’s aim is never to imprint upon the wines he insists, but instead, to allow them to shine. And shine they do. For in 2017, the wines capture the spirit of a warmer vintage with soft textures, beautifully suave, velvety tannins and layers of sumptuous, sexy fruit. On the white front, we have increased our allocation of the white La del Vivo 2018, released a year ahead of the reds. This electrifying Godello-Dona Blanca blend, primarily sourced from 80 year-old vines in La Poulosa with a drop of centenarian fruit from Las Villegas thrown in (the source of Raul’s famous Ultreia de Valtuille), is the best vintage we have tasted so far. Racy but poised, with a flinty, salty profile, citrus and stone fruit, and bags of energy, it will appeal to lovers of superior Cote d’Or and Loire Valley whites, at a snip of the price. Given that the whole range is available at under £100 per six bottles in bond, we recommend buying two or three different cases and opening bottles side-by-side to compare. The good news is that while young bottles can easily be enjoyed over three or four days, so there’s no need to rush them - would that restraint so easily be counted upon!    Read More
