La Clave is a red wine produced by the winery Raúl Pérez Bodega y Viñedos in the D.O. Bierzo.

 

Raúl Pérez Bodega y Viñedos is a personal project of the renowned oenologist from León, Raúl Pérez. Since he worked in the winery Castro Ventosa, he caused a true revolution in El Bierzo.

After more than 10 years, Raúl Pérez Bodegas y Viñedos has managed to produce the wines he wished for; they are genuine references in the D.O. Bierzo. Wines with personality, carefully produced and of great quality.

 

La Clave is a wine made from Mencía and Garnacha Tintorera (Alicante Bouschet) from the area of Ponferrada. Harvest is carried out by hand and grapes are destemmed before they are fermented in stainless steel deposits. This wine is aged for 12 months in used French oak barrels.

 

La Clave is an intense, ample and fresh wine. It stands out for its ripe red fruits and flowery aromas, elegantly combined with mineral, toasted and slightly balsamic notes.

Raúl Pérez is a philosopher of viticulture. He is also a consultant, apart from an oenologist and the most popular producer of unique wines in Spain. His name is known by a lot of good enthusiasts, and some of his wines are on the agenda of Robert Parker. However, his labels are produced in very small quantities, which makes his wine quite hard to find. He makes his own wines, wines for others and in collaboration with other people. He participates in family projects and other formal and informal ones. He breaks the rules, reaching the limits. He sometimes crosses the line and even crosses borders ... Not bad considering he wanted to become a doctor! Raúl Pérez Raúl Pérez is a philosopher of viticulture.

Pictures and situation Raúl 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.
