ULTREIA VALTUILLE 2010 | RAÚL PÉREZ | BIERZO | 96RP

"The 2010 Ultreia Valtuille is produced from old-vine Mencia vineyards from the Villegas zone within the village of Valtuille. It has a very Burgundian feel to it, even if the texture is more redolent of a Crozes-Hermitage. This is a medium-bodied, ultra-elegant, mega-mineral wine, built to last, but approachable from right now. The sense of balance and harmony is amazing. A truly great wine. Some 3,500 bottles were produced. I had a preview of the just-bottled 2011 of this wine and it was closed for business, but it shows great potential and I’m looking forward to tasting it next year. Drink: 2014-2025."

"Glass-staining ruby. Powerful aromas and flavors of cherry compote, wild herbs, anise, Asian spices and potpourri, with suavely integrated oak. Ripe, lush and spicy, with no undue heaviness and strong back-end lift. The long, intensely spicy finish features very fine tannins and a sexy floral quality. (100% Mencia, fermented with a large proportion of whole clusters in Austrian and French oak, then aged for 12 months on its lees.)"
