Antoine Graillot & Raúl Pérez Bierzo Encinas 2016, 0.75L

Region: Bierzo, Castilla y León Spain
Varietal: Mencia
Score: 94W&S
Review: "A collaboration between Antoine Graillot from Crozes-Hermitage and Raúl Pérez, this Mencía comes from a range of parcels, with a strong focus in Rapolao, one of Pérez’s star vineyards in the Valtuille de Abajo area. It’s rare for mencía in Bierzo to taste this fresh, with so much energy and tension. There are meat and mineral notes, but it’s mostly just delicious, crunchy red fruit, filling the mouth with freshness. The tannins are youthfully wild, but nothing that game cannot remedy."
