Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2020 La Vizcaína La del Vivo is super harmonious, tasty and balanced. The wine matured in two 2,500-liter oak foudres, and a small part fermented and matured in amphorae with skins. It's varietal and expressive and comes from two plots, one with sandy soils and another one in Cacabelos with some boulders. There's always a small percentage of Doña Blanca in the blend. It's very dry and has a chalky texture. 6,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in August 2021.
Between 8ºC and 10ºC
Fermented in 500-liter oak barrels and old terracotta amphorae.
La del Vivo is a D.O. Bierzo white wine made from Godello and Doña Blanca grapes by Raúl Pérez and his nephew César Márquez with the Bodega La Vizcaína de Vinos in the D.O. Bierzo in Castilla y León, Spain.
The grapes used come from vineyards planted on clay soils in Valtuille de Abajo, in the Bierzo region.
This is a white wine vinified with the stalk that supports the set of grapes that form a bunch of grapes and with a subsequent ageing of 12 months in French oak barrels of different capacities. A part of this coupage of Godello and Doña Blanca is fermented in clay amphorae, giving it agility and a charming rusticity. Subsequently, it is bottled without fining.
La del Vivo is an elegant, well-balanced white wine with a certain mineral touch. It is very expressive and ample, spirited, with a long, fruity finish and a medium-high level of acidity.
A unique wine
La del Vivo is a white wine with such peculiar characteristics that give it an original personality and a cellaring capacity of up to 10 years. It is a jewel of the oenologist Raúl Pérez and his nephew César Márquez of Bodega La Vizcaína de Vinos.
It is a wine that is the ideal companion for those special moments when you want to share a glass of wine and a pleasant conversation.
In gastronomic terms, it is recommended to accompany dishes such as white meats with sauce, fish rice dishes, cod, eggs, baked white fish, seafood and, of course, Asian food.
