La Tentación | Raúl Perez

Pinot Noir rarely feels at home in Spain, but Raúl Pérez has crafted one of the country’s best versions. Made by hand from a tiny single-vineyard in Bierzo, fermented in open-top containers with 100% whole bunches and aged for 12 months in oak, this is a singular expression of Pinot Noir— elegant, earthy, and simultaneously elegant and opulent.
