César Márquez Pérez Valtuille is a wood-aged red wine made by César Márquez Pérez with the Mencía variety in the D.O. Bierzo, in Castilla y León, Spain.

Nephew of the famous winemaker Raúl Pérez, César Márquez Pérez is one of the promising young winemakers in El Bierzo. His Burgundy-style project seeks to find the typicity of the Valtuille area. He uses old vineyards with different orientations and soils to produce balanced and genuine wines that are faithful to their origin.

César Márquez Pérez Valtuille comes from a spectacular setting in the town of Valtuille. These are hundred-year-old vines planted in clay soils and cultivated using environmentally friendly agriculture. The harvest is carried out manually and selectively, depending on the orientation and favouring the shadier areas where ripening happens more slowly, giving the wines lower alcohol and more freshness.

In the winery, César Márquez Pérez Valtuille is made with minimal intervention, the way things used to be done. These are microvinifications using grape stalks and long macerations. Fermentation takes place spontaneously with native yeasts and then the wine ages for 12 months in used French oak barrels.

With freshness and elegance as the two main characteristics of this outstanding winemaker’s wines, César Márquez Pérez Valtuille is a great example of the new generation wines that are placing Bierzo among the regions with the best winemaking potential in the world.

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.
