Bodegas Raúl Pérez Bierzo Ultreia Saint-Jacques Mencia


Deep red in color with purple nuances, spicy fruity in aroma with fresh cherries and some flint. The taste starts fresh and juicy and ends with a fruity aftertaste and light tannin.
 


Red wine from Spain


They exist: wines that taste twice as good as the price suggests. This Saint-Jacques from Bierzo is one of them. This is not surprising, because it is made by one of the most respected and quirky winemakers in Spain: Raúl Pérez.
Although Pérez is active in various Spanish wine regions and even in Portugal and South Africa, he is rooted in Bierzo. Here he was born, in the village of Valtuille de Abajo, and here he also started making wine, in the ancient domain of the Pérez family, Castro Ventosa.
Ultreia is Raúl's first own label and earned him his worldwide cult status. The name refers to the fact that the Camino de Santiago leads past Valtuille. The Latin word 'ultreia' means as much as 'forward' and was used by the pilgrims to greet each other. The Saint-Jacques is the red 'entry-level wine' in this series.
It is made from mencia, the blue grape of Bierzo, harvested in various plots in Valtuille. Raúl's winemaking style is very minimalistic: his goal is pure expression of terroir, grape and vintage year. After the manual harvest, a spontaneous fermentation with whole bunches in wooden barrels follows. After barrel maturation, the wine is bottled unfiltered.
Not only us, but also greats like Jancis Robinson and The Wine Advocate have been blown away by the sublime quality of this super charming Bierzo. Wild red fruit, spiciness, smokiness and minerality in the scent, a smooth, round taste with beautiful freshness and complexity and enormous storage potential. And all for an unbelievably modest price. Don't miss it, because this wine is very popular!
