César Márquez, Godello 'La Salvacion' 2019
So this is very, very good. Godello from 100 year old vines. Drinks a bit like Jura Chardy, with a touch of oxidation going on. Impeccably balanced, definitely one to get onto asap.
César Marquez Perez
It's fair to say he was born into a pretty decent wine family. The name Perez has been synonymous with Spanish winemaking for 300 odd years. They founded the Castro Ventosa winery back in 1752, and still own it today. Their access to prime sites throughout Bierzo is unprecedented. Cesar learnt from his uncle Raul (one of the most influential Spanish vignerons, ever), before striking out with his own label in 2015. He's structuring his wines with a nod to Burgundy, as are most of the inspired younger producers at the moment. Appellation wine, village wine, cru wine... Organic farming, a mixture of whole bunch and de-stemmed fruit where necessary, reductive winemaking and low SO2.
