This years blend is 85% Godello and 15% Dona Blanca, sourced from a variety of highland Bierzo terroirs. The Godello comes mostly from a stony Carracedo site as well as some sandy loam and clay/limestone plots in Valtuille and Villafranca del Bierzo at 500+ meters elevation. The Dona Blanca hails from similar sites but also includes some older, goblet material from the slate soils of Espanillo. All up, the vine age sits between 20-80 years old which is remarkable when you consider the price. The wine was fermented with wild yeasts in steel vats and then raised on its fine lees with weekly battonage for 5 months. No oak is used at this level.

After starting his career in France, his roots and a friends encouragement brought him to Spain, the Bierzo region, to be exact. Gregory Perez is one of the new generations most promising, dedicated to the creation of fantastic Spanish wines in his winery; a project which he dedicates all of his energy and passion and is based on the philosophy of respect and sustainability. This philosophy highlights the remarkable personality of each terroir, thus contributing to the production of original natural wines.

Wine Advocate 91pts (2017) - The white 2017 Brezo had a spicy and herbal note that gave it a marked personality away from the varietal Godello notes. It is a blend of Godello with some 10% Dona Blanca that fermented and matured in stainless steel vats until bottling. It's very tasty, with some saline-like notes and some nutty and spicy tones that made me think there was some yeast contact.
