94 Pts Jay Miller - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2007 Valdemuz is 100% Prieto Picudo from vines ranging in age from 100-115 years. For this cuvee 20% whole bunches were utilized with aging for 18 months in new French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it offers up a splendid aromatic array of pain grille, graphite, espresso, truffle, black cherry, and blackberry. Dense, ripe, and concentrated, on the palate it is velvety textured and virtually seamless. This lengthy offering will evolve for another 5-7 years and provide big-time pleasure through 2027 if not longer."
"The Pricum wines are produced by Bodegas Maragon who specialize in working with Prieto Picudo, an indigenous variety that has been winning significant attention recently. The wines are made by none other than Raul Perez." (04/10)

"Inky purple. Far more serious than the foregoing Pricum bottlings, offering deep dark berry and bitter cherry aromas and flavors complicated by licorice and black cardamom. Lively minerality adds lift and thrust to the middle palate and a suave floral quality builds with air. Finishes with outstanding persistence and lingering notes of smoky minerals and dried rose. According to the importer, these vines are between 100 and 115 years of age and are planted even higher than those that produce the Paraje de El Santo, and on rockier soil." (10/10)
"Produced from the oldest and lowest yielding estate vineyard, Valdemuz. Vines are aged between 100 and 115 years old and yield only 8 hectoliters per hectare. The vineyard is at a higher elevation than Paraje de El Santo and has stonier soils. The grapes are hand harvested from these old bush vines and sorted again at the winery prior to processing. A major difference between this and Paraje de El Santo, is that this wine incorporates 20% whole bunches along with 80% destemmed fruit in the fermentation. There is a cold pre-fermentation maceration prior to fermentation in temperature controlled French oak fudres. Following fermentation with native yeasts this wine saw 18 months aging in new French oak barrels." -Importer
"Bodegas Margon is the result of the passion that has moved the Martinez and Gonzalez families, to produce high quality wines with the Prieto Picudo variety. All of their estate grown, old vineyards are located in the village of Pajares de Los Oteros within the new D.O. Tierra de Leon."
"Tierra de Leon D.O. was created in July of 2007, but the existence of a characteristic grape and wines variety in this area come from the Roman Era. The production area, with around 3.500 km squared, is situated on the south of Leon and part of the north of Valladolid provinces. It is under the influence of Esla and Cea riverside. 34 wineries and 500 wine-growers are accepted in the protected Designation of Origin. The Prieto Picudo grape is the most characteristic grape of this area and is known for its conical bunches."
"Under the brand PRICUM, they produce white and red wines, made with grapes from their hundred year old vineyards, cared and fussed over as their ancestors did. During the harvest all their bush vines are hand harvested. Raul Perez is the manager and winemaker for this project. He has become one of the most international recognized winemakers from the northwest of Spain."
"They focus especially on allowing the maximum expression and quality of the Prieto Picudo variety. As such they received harvested grapes to a cooling room at the top of the winery. This permits the raw material to access the tanks by gravity and with the best temperature conditions. Fermentation occurs in French oak vats instead of conventional stainless steel tanks. A great selection of french tonnelleries in the cave allows to additional structure of oak to balance the power of the Prieto Picudo grapes. " -Importer
