Characteristics of César Márquez Pérez Pico Ferreira

César Márquez Pérez Pico Ferreira is a red wine produced by César Márquez Pérez in Valtuille de Abajo (León), D.O. Bierzo.

 

After years of experience in the family winery, Castro Ventosa, and in Mendoza (Argentina) with the Michelini family, César Márquez Pérez, nephew of renowned oenologist from El Bierzo, Raul Pérez, made his first wines on his own.

In the facilities of La Vizcaína, César Márquez Pérez vinified, with wisdom and enthusiasm, small lots from the best vineyards in the area.

 

César Márquez Pérez Pico Ferreira is a wine made with Mencía from a vineyard of 0.3 hectares located in a site of Toral of the Vados, at 710 metres of altitude, planted on soils of decomposed slate, clay and slate in the rock.

After the manual harvest, and already in the winery, the whole bunches ferment in open barrels with native yeasts. Once the fermentation has finished, it is aged for 12 months in 500-litre French oak barrels.

Tasting notes César Márquez Pérez Pico Ferreira

César Márquez Pérez Pico Ferreira 2018 is a complex, elegant and fresh wine. The aromas of ripe red fruits with very subtle toasted notes stand out. In the mouth, the slate expresses itself with personality and warmth, lengthening the finish of the wine to eternity.
Extreme weather included low rainfall and summer drought with high temperatures resulting in an unusually early harvest. The most important weather events occurred on April 28th with a late frost that destroyed the crops of El Bierzo valley, and also the hailstorm that fell days later on May 9th, which destroyed part of the vineyards on the slopes of Corullón. The harvest was brought forward to unusual dates due to the high temperatures. Some winegrowers started to pick grapes the last days of August.The wines of this vintage have a good balance between structure and acidity. The fast ripening of the grape caused a small decrease in acidity that makes the wines accessible from the first vintage.
A vintage where the Atlantic climate has ruled over the continental.  The lightness of this type of climate, together with the perfect sanitary condition of the vineyard, has given rise to an excellent vintage from this area.  The year began with typical temperate and rainy winter weather.  What differentiated the year was the intense rains that fell between the months of April and May, conditioning the vegetative development of the vine.    The summer was then noticeable for being warm and dry, the perfect combination for the perfect grape.
The 2015 vintage was characterised by low rainfall. The lack of water throughout the year brought the vegetative cycle of the vine forward and it was not until days before the harvest that it started to rain considerably. This caused the grape to hydrate and lead to a somewhat fresher vintage than what it initially seemed. The continental character that this vintage looked like it was going to have was mitigated by the rain before the harvest, balancing the phenolic ripeness, qualifying the vintage as excellent. The wines of this vintage have an excellent balance between structure, acidity and texture in the mouth. A vintage that can age perfectly.

Designation of Origin D.O. Bierzo

Winery César Márquez Pérez

Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.  Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.
