Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

Like the rest of the wines, the 2018 Aires de Vendimia Mencía de Valtuille is quite impressive, elegant, clean and fresh, with neatly integrated oak, a fluid mouthfeel, fine tannins and good harmony. It's nicely textured, and the roughly 15% white grapes found in the old vineyards surely contributes to the finesse and freshness. It fermented in oak foudre with 80% full clusters and native yeasts and finished fermenting without the skins after being pressed (like a white) in barrel. It matured in French oak barrels for one year and spent three months in oak foudre. 4,700 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2020.
