Wine critics reviewsReviews by Jancis Robinson and Parker
Good introduction to Raul Pérez
Excellent price quality, best drunk in a Zalto Bourgogne glass - you will be amazed by the finesse and nuances for this price. In a Bordeaux type glass will taste fuller bodied & juicier. A must try to drink now up to end of 2019. Non finished bottles can be kept to next day by putting cork back on and putting in fridge - take next day out of fridge, open and give time to breath and warm up to 16° - we did several times and never quality loss and sometimes even better.by: Manuel Broncano (7 May) - Vintage 2018
A very good wine! Good intensity of flavours, great balance and a good length.
A medium to deep intensity ruby colour. On the primary aromas, fruity and aromatic with pronounced red fruit aromas (cherry, raspberry). On the secondary aromas, very elegant hints of smoke and spices. On the palate, medium body and very well balanced (medium acidity and medium/high soft tannins) with sour cherry, pomegranate and peppery flavours, A regular in my shopping cart.by: philipdsc (12/02/2020) - Vintage 2018
Great value; easy drinking
Fans of such popular Vinissimus wines as Semele and Casa Castillo might like to add this red from Bierzo to their tasting list. It's made from the Mencia grape and is similarly quaffable and excellently priced. It's fairly light in the mouth initially but with enough body and length to partner red meat dishes well.by: John Oddie (05/09/2019) - Vintage 2017
Wonderful balance of fruit and acidity!
This wine is wonderful, lighter than some of the Mencias with really good balance between fhe fruit and acidity and lots of depth in the aftertaste. So good I ordered another case at the discounted price. A real bargain!by: Martin Hammond (24/09/2020) - Vintage 2018
Smooth a tasty
We've only had one bottle so far, but we were both impressed. Easy drinking that went with pre dinner nibbles as well as it did with a meaty pasta dish. Have ordered again
