    Raúl Pérez

    About Raúl Pérez

    Sensationally talented in both the vineyard and the winery from a remarkably early age, Raúl Pérez crafted his very first vintage for his family’s estate in 1994 at the age of 22. Immediately staking a claim as one of the most progressive and exciting personalities in the country, Pérez has been at the forefront of what experts have declared “The New Spain” since the very inception of the movement.

    Finding himself in need of autonomy and the freedom to express his own vinous signature, Bodegas y Viñedos Raúl Pérez was founded in 2005. Almost instantaneously elevating itself to the position of benchmark estate in the appellation of Bierzo, the extraordinarily energetic and ambitious winemaker quickly expanded his sphere of influence out to the regions of Rías Baixas, Ribeira Sacra and Tierra de Léon. As famous and prestigious as his name has become, Pérez remains proudly based in the Bierzo village of Valtuille de Abajo – a stone’s throw from his family’s estate.

    Raul Perez (Vizcaina) Gundinas 2017 (6x75cl)

    2017

    Raul Perez (Vizcaina) Gundinas 2017 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (93)

    La Gundiñas is the wine that shows the most differences between 2017 and 2018. The 2017 La Vizcaína Las Gundiñas is dark and concentrated, a wine of sun, while the 2018 is delicate and feels like a mini Bonnes Mares! This is quite like a Cornas—meaty, juicy, a little reticent and powerful, with abundant tannins. This is one wine that behaves better in 2017 than in 2016. This is a plot that has ups and down; it might be more regular in the future, as they finally bought it in 2018. Some 5,500 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2019.

    Raul Perez (Vizcaina) Gundinas 2019 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (94+)

    Pérez told me that Las Gundiñas is quite unpredictable, and the 2019 La Vizcaína Las Gundiñas is more Rhône-like and juicy, with notes of straw and hay and also a note of iron. It's 13.5% alcohol. They always ferment with 10% full clusters and have the same maceration, but they have lowered the time in barrel as the wines stay in the fermentation oak vats until February and then are put in 500-liter and larger barrels and bottled before the next harvest. They are introducing oak foudres at La Vizcaína, and if it goes well, they might move the whole project to them. There are some 5,000 bottles of this. They have purchased more vineyards in most of the crus.

    2017

    Raul Perez (Vizcaina) Rapolao 2017 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (95)

    I was impressed by the 2017 La Vizcaína El Rapolao, but the warm vintage was very good for a warmer vineyard like El Rapolao. This is hands-down my favorite of the 2017s from La Vizcaína, the wine that shows more freshness. It's harmonious and perhaps was harvested a little earlier than the others. Like the other wines from the range, this 2017 has more color than the 2018, as well as more power and a little more concentration, and it's also denser than the 2018, with tannins that are grittier and a little drier. But if I didn't have the 2018 next to this, I would only be praising it, because the 2017 is truly impressive, all in place and simply one step up in power and all the rest to keep the balance. 10,000 bottles were filled in May 2019. This is a late-budding vineyard, and it didn't suffer the effect of the spring hail from the year.

    Raul Perez (Vizcaina) Rapolao 2018 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (95+)

    There is a bit of an animal hint on the nose of the 2018 La Vizcaína El Rapolao, which Raúl Pérez tells me is always part of the character of the wine when it's young. The difference with the 2017 is the quality of the tannins, which rounder and more elegant here, and the concentration, which is lower here, so this 2018 comes through as more fluid, fresh and elegant, with a silkier mouthfeel. They finally bought the vineyard in 2018, and the change in viticulture resulted in lower yields: they produced 6,000 bottles of this 2018, compared with the 10,000 bottles of the 2017. They have bought three more plots for this bottling, so volumes will grow in the future. The initial sensation fades after the wine has been in bottle for one hour, and it makes sense that it's gong to disappear with some more time in bottle. Pérez thinks it might be related to the recent bottling. It was bottled in May 2020, a few weeks before I tasted it.

    Vinous (94)

    Shimmering violet. Intensely perfumed aromas of dark berries, cherry pit, incense, exotic spices and pungent flowers, along with a smoky mineral flourish that builds in the glass. Densely packed and chewy on the palate, showing excellent depth and bright mineral lift to the sappy black and blue fruit, spicecake and violet pastille flavors. Gains energy with air and finishes impressively long and juicy, polished tannins building slowly and harmonizing with the wine's mineral-tinged fruit.

    Wine Advocate (96)

    The 2019 La Vizcaína La Vitoriana comes from sandy soils and mostly north-facing vines, delivering elegant and floral wines. It's very young and fruit-driven, perhaps not as complex as the 2020. All of these reds are around 13.5% alcohol, medium-bodied and quite harmonious. 2019 was one of the larger crops, and there are 7,000 bottles of this.
