Raul Perez Description

A blend of mostly Mencía with Bastardo (Trousseau), and Garnacha Tintorera (Alicante Bouschet) from vines planted between 1900 and 1940. 80% whole cluster fermentation in large oak vats. Macerations of between two and five months. Aging in various vessels: 225L, 500L, foudre and cement. Bottled without fining or filtration.

Wine Advocate: 93-94 Points

They had not bottled the 2020 Ultreia Saint Jacques yet and were still waiting for the labels (and they label the day after they bottle), so I caught an unbottled sample that was very tender and fruit-driven, primary and quite open. He used more stems and full clusters in 2020, and since 2018, they have removed the percentage of white grapes that used to be included in the wine. It's a little more Mediterranean, with aromatic herbs and a more powerful palate. There will be some 120,000 bottles from 2020. Anticipated Maturity: 2023-2026
