The Story

Bordeaux-born Grégory Pérez worked at Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste and Château Cos d’Estournel before he listened to his friends and moved to Spain. He settled down in Bierzo where he tends vineyards in Espadillo, a hamlet of the village of Arganza. In this mountainous area soils are mostly clay and decomposed slate. 

Vines are planted on steep slopes at an altitude of over 600m. Exposure to midday sun and good aeration are key issues for Grégory. His wines are made based on eight key principles: soil knowledge, biodiversity protection, indigenous grapes, no aggressive treatments, no herbicides, low yields, selection of grapes in the vineyard and traditional winemaking and aging.

 

M+Q Notes

Savoury with bright red fruits, floral notes and good acidity. The height of the vineyard and soils shine through with a delicious earthiness of slate. A complete steal for this price.
