Review

Rapolao is a wonderful wine produced by the La Vizcaína de Vinos project set up by Raúl Pérez and his nephews César Márquez and Nerea Pérez in Bierzo. A wine made from Mencia and small amounts of other varieties from Raúl's favourite vineyards, two plots planted in 1920 and 1980 in the coolest area of Valtuille de Abajo, at a height of 500 metres on the north-facing hillsides of Rapolao. Grapes are collected and selected by hand and then the whole bunches are fermented in large open wooden vats and the resulting wine is aged for 12 months in used French oak barrels.

A faithful expression of its terroir, La Vizcaína Rapolao is a wonderfully elegant and fresh wine with a bright cherry-red colour and splendid floral aromas accompanied by notes of red fruits, wild berries and other spicy and mineral hints. It has a wide, warm and elegant mouthfeel with more acidity than other wines from the same winery and clear firm tannins. Its long finish highlights a serious and powerful character.

Añada 2014

En boca presenta un buen ataque, de acidez media-alta y con los taninos bastante dulces ya aunque todavía aportan sensaciones secantes al paladar que le confieren mucha elegancia. De gran amplitud y opulencia con un paso por boca potente, de cuerpo medio y licoroso. Los aromas retronasales son florales y acompotados. Post-gusto embaucador en donde las notas de fruta roja madura y los apuntes de guindas en licor predominan sobre el resto. Al final sí encontramos toques más terciarios, de cuero y roble. Nos da una persistencia de tres minutos y 10 segundos. Una gran mencía, con mucho carácter.
