Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The nose of the 2019 Ultreia Saint Jacques is nothing short of spectacular. It shows the varietal character and the juicy and round style of the Valtuille vineyards. It's harmonious, clean and expressive. They are using more and more stems with long macerations, malolactic in tanks and aging in 30% oak vats (he purchased from Alión) and 70% of the wine in used 225-liter oak barrels for one year. There is only one master blend, which is put into oak vats and bottled by 25,000- to 30,000-bottle lots. In 2019 he produced 110,000 bottles of this wine.

Features

Description

Ultreia Saint Jacques is a red wine made from Mencía grapes by the Raúl Pérez winery in the Bierzo DO.
It is a wine made from grapes coming from vineyards planted on clay-limestone soils.
These are family vineyards planted 50 years ago and onwards, located in the village of Valtuille de Abajo, which are crossed by the Camino de Santiago.

Winemaking

The grapes are harvested by hand. Once the grapes reach the winery, they are fermented in oak barrels with a capacity of 3,000 to 5,000 litres, without temperature control. Subsequently, it is aged in old used French oak vats. It is not filtered or clarified.

Taste

Ultreia Saint Jacques is a red wine with fruity aromas and hints of minerality, which also surprisingly shows the varietal character and style of the Valtuille vineyards.
It is an exuberant wine, with a lot of volume. On the palate it is direct, round and appetising, fluid in the mouth with excellent integrated acidity.

A red wine conceived as a tribute to life by its creator Raúl Pérez.

The word ultreia is of Latin origin. This is how the pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago greeted each other, and it means forward. This is the origin of one of the most popular and appreciated wine collections of the Raúl Pérez winery in the D.O. Bierzo, of which this magnificent wine is a part.
Ultreia Saint Jacques is a red wine to be enjoyed with dishes such as bluefin tuna belly, meat and vegetable lasagne, matanza with fried eggs and hot pots.
