Wow. What a nice Mencia from Spain. Earthy notes, leather, plum, blueberry, smoke and dried leaves. Balanced acidity, medium+ body with firm tannins and long earthy finish. Excellent value for money.more reviews

"The palate is beautiful in the Cornas style (...) a great wine that needs time to open up" R. Parker
Antoine Graillot, the son of the star of the Crozes Hermitage: Alain Graillot recently launched a project with one of the largest Spanish winemakers: Raul Perez. This wine offers a dazzling robe and reveals a very attractive deep cherry tint. The nose is impressive. There are similar notes to Cabernet Franc when reduced (it is a good idea to aerate this wine for at least 1 hour before tasting) encased in sweet spice, black fruit and very airy floral notes. Such aromatic purity is rare for a 100% Mencia and it is here that Antoine and Raul are clearly different. The flesh is dense and juicy on the palate. It is fine mid-palate and offers spicy and sour cherry notes to finish on an impressive mineral persistence.

RAUL PEREZ (BODEGAS Y VIÑEDOS)

Raúl Pérez is considered one of the greatest winemakers in Spain, and also one of the most prolific, producing over thirty of his own wines in addition to overseeing several renowned estates (Estefania / Tilenus, Castro Ventosa) . He has a discreet personality and it is by humbly stepping aside to let the vine and its terroir express itself that he paradoxically earned his status as a wine super star! From Bierzo to the Rias Baixas, via Ribeira Sacra and Monterrei, he signs artist wines whose reputation extends far beyond the borders of his native Spain. Yet despite all the hype, very few have managed to taste the virtuoso's cuvées, as his wines are often produced only in a few barrels per vintage!
