The wine

The magnificent wine from Marcos García and his family. A ‘vino de pago’, an estate wine from the Pago de Valdoneje, which shows the maturity of the old vines and the winery’s own individual style, offering a profile that’s also a little more rustic and austere than the others, with some rough tannins, which will appreciate time in bottle. In short, a truly great wine which invites calm reflection, enjoying one sip after another.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker and Suckling

I again tasted the 2016 Pago de Valdoneje Viñas Viejas, a selection from old vines that was matured in oak. It has further integrated the effect of the élevage but has aged slowly and gracefully. The palate seems a little more polished, and in general, it's moving in the right direction as expected. It should continue its evolution in bottle for a while. 6,000 bottles were filled in December 2017.

Aromas of crushed black pepper, cloves and dark berries follow through to a full body with creamy, polished tannins that are long and mouth-filling in a seductive way. 100% mencia. Drink or hold.

Vinos Valtuille

Vinos Valtuille is a small, familiar-run winery, with Marcos García Alba one of the new-wave wine-produers and bodega owners in Bierzo, that took on the challenge of creating quality wines at the beginning of 2000, making an important investment in installations, facilities and plenty of technical resources.
