93 Points, Zachys Buying Team: "Tasted ten times and counting. This is one of those wines that gets you excited about indigenous Spain, much in the way that Sangiovese does for Italy. There is acidity, its high-toned, bright and its super aromatic showcasing a savory and earthy side. It truly is one of those wines where the aromatics alone are worth the price of admission. It screams dried fruits, herbs and spices on the nose which carries through on to the palate. You can expect to find a wealth of nuances that begins with potpourri and blue and red fruits, we are talking bing cherries, cranberries, fresh blueberries, citrus peel, tea, pepper and smoke. Serve this juicy and delicious wine cool or with a grilled summer burger or some good company."

Wine Advocate

93 Points, Luis Gutierrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The clean, floral and 2017 Ultreia Saint Jacques comes mostly from old vineyards from different soils in Valtuille and Villadecanes fermented in stainless steel and oak vats with part of full clusters and matured in used barriques for one year. It's produced in a fresh and very drinkable way. This is one of the best values from Bierzo and Spain, and a great introduction to Bierzo. It's a more serious wine than what the wine was when it was first produced, fresh and elegant. It's very reliable and a great value" 2/19


93 Points, Sarah Jane Evans MW, Decanter: "A field blend of Mencia, Alicante Bouschet, Pan y Carne and some white varieties, fermented with natural yeast in old oak tanks using 100% stems and no temperature control. It undergoes malo in tank and then spends one year in old barrels. There's no remontage or pigeage, and he works without sulphites. This has bright, fresh blueberry and cranberry fruit with a rasp of tannin and a savoury, saline sign-off." 2/19
