2017 Raúl Pérez Bodegas y Viñedos, La Poulosa

2017 Raúl Pérez Bodegas y Viñedos, La Poulosa
Raúl was named “Winemaker of the Year” by German publication Der Feinschmecker in 2014 and “Best Winemaker in the World” for 2015 by the French publication Bettane+Desseauve. In the February 2018 Decanter, Master of Wine Pedro Ballesteros wrote, “Raúl Pérez is the archetype of the intuitive winemaking genius.” A picture of Raúl in that same article is captioned, “Is this the best winemaker in the world?” Raúl would certainly not self-apply any of these superlatives. In fact, his genius is far exceeded by his humility and generosity of spirit. That humility comes through in his wines. These are not “winemaker” wines so much as they are unadulterated expressions of the villages and vineyards from which they hail. WA92 Tasting Notes: 2017 La Vizcaina La Poulsa is gentler, more ripe and generous. Soft on the palate, ripe and tender. This is a very approachable wine with moderate acidity. Food Recommendation: hotpot, stew, game.
