Against all odds, the old vine Mencía cuvée from the warmer vintage fared much better than the one from 2012. The 2011 Valtuille Cepas Centenarias has notes of raspberries, camphor, a hint of stems leaving it to feel a little raw but very attractive and slightly earthy in a Gevrey-Chambertin style. The palate is medium-bodied, but reveals very intense flavors and great power, with seriousness and very good balance for such warm vintage. A triumph for the year. Around 4,000 bottles are produced depending on the conditions of the year.

The family winery of the Pérez family in Valtuille de Abajo had a wide and strong collection of wines to show. Beside minuscule single-vineyard bottlings they are also quite good in the available, affordable, young, un-oaked red category. All the old vineyards in Valtuille contain a mixture of grapes, even when Mencía is the dominant one.

Description

It is often said that a good Mencia combines the fruit of a nice Pinot and the freshness of a good Syrah.
Valtuille - the name of the village where the vineyard stands - comes from a selection of 100 year-old vines, at 580 m above sea level.
Production; 3,500 bottles.

Vinification

11 months in French oak bottles, mainly new.

Tasting analysis

Deep colour, like ink. This is a complex and dense wine.
Expressive nose with a continental character (black pepper, coffee, sweet cherry), slightly reductive, some toasted notes.
A concentrated, powerful but denied and well-balanced wine.

Storage potential

Until 2017 at least. This wine will take at least 5 years to develop.

Serving

Serve at 18°C in a large Burgundy glass, after decanting.
