Bodegas Raúl Pérez Bierzo Ultreia Saint-Jacques Mencia


Deep red in color with purple nuances, spicy fruity scent with fresh cherries and some flint. The taste is fresh and juicy and ends with a fruity aftertaste and light tannins.
 


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 hardly surprising, as it is made by one of the most respected and most idiosyncratic winemakers in Spain: Raúl Pérez.
Although Pérez is active in several Spanish wine regions and even 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, on the ancient domain of the Pérez family, Castro Ventosa.
Ultreia is Raúl's first own label and has given him his worldwide cult status. The name refers to the fact that the Camino de Santiago passes Valtuille. The Latin word 'ultreia' means as much as 'forward' and was used by the pilgrims to greet each other. 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 minimalist: his goal is pure expression of terroir, grape and vintage. After the manual harvest, a spontaneous fermentation follows with whole trusses in wooden barrels. After barrel maturation, the wine is bottled unfiltered.
Not only we, but also greats like Jancis Robinson and The Wine Advocate are blown away by the sublime quality of this super charming Bierzo. Wild red fruit, spiciness, smokiness and minerality in the fragrance, a smooth, round taste with beautiful freshness and complexity and an enormous storage potential. And all for an unbelievably modest price. Don't miss it, because this wine is very popular!
