The Yllera family has a long history of winemaking in Spain's Ribera del Duero, but their new project VivaltuS is already their 2016 crowning achievement as their very first vintage. A wine that will be an important name in Ribera del Duero' in the eyes of Wine Advocate's Luis Gutiérrez. The stormy success of the Vivaltus can partly be attributed to the legendary advisor Jean-Claude Berrouet, winemaker at Château Pétrus and Dominus. Tim Atkin MW praises Berrouet's influence, stating that even considering his 'distinguished track record', this is truly 'a remarkable wine'. It is also special that this wine is distributed via the Place du Bordeaux to ensure that only serious and renowned wine companies handle this wine with care and of course Grandcruwijnen is one of these companies that can purchase directly and directly.

The 2017 vintage is only the second vintage on the market. LThe Vivaltus is the top model and the Fleur de Vivaltus is the second wine from Vivaltus. Vivaltus and La Fleur de Vivaltus are both made from 96% Tempranillo (supplemented with 3% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Merlot) and are therefore Spanish in principle. However, Berrouet's influence is very noticeable: the wines feel distinctly French/Bordeaux in their elegance, freshness and classic style. The wines come from very old vineyards at 800-1,000 meters. The Vivaltus has a substantial filling. On the one hand Bordeaux influences, but very Spanish and real Tempranillo character at the core. Made for drinkability and digestibility. Cherries, tobacco, earth, vanilla. Good storage potential. Traditionally made, yet with modern influences: a new interpretation of Ribera del Duero. Silky soft molten tannins and evolving texture followed by a long, tasty finish.

"Vivaltus will soon be an important name in Ribera del Duero.” Wine Advocate, Louis Gutierrez

“What a debut! Even given the distinguished track record of consultant Jean Claude Berrouet, this is a remarkable wine.” 97 Tim Atkins

Vineyard for 2017 Vivaltus

The owner is the Yllera family who have been making quality wines for 6 generations. Currently the company is run by a team of professional young people led by the brothers and sisters Marcos and Carlos Yllera and we have taken Yllera Bodegas Y Viñedos to the top in the wine sector. They are always looking for the best quality-price-personality relationship in their wines and thanks to the continuous investments and expansions in the wineries and vineyards, the barrels and technology. The family's latest project, VivaltuS, is the prestigious project of Spanish winemaker Montxo Martinez and legendary French winemaker Jean-Claude Berrouet (the man behind Château Petrus and Dominus).

The Yllera family has a long history of winemaking in Spain's Ribera del Duero, but their new project Vivaltus already crowns 2016 as their very first vintage. A wine that will be an important name in Ribera del Duero' in the eyes of Wine Advocate's Luis Gutiérrez. The stormy success of the Vivaltus 2016 can partly resign the estate to the legendary advisor Jean-Claude Berrouet, winemaker at Château Pétrus. Tim Atkin MW praises Berrouet's influence, stating that, even given its 'distinguished track record', this is truly 'a remarkable wine'.

Also special is that this wine is distributed via the Place du Bordeaux to ensure that only serious and reputable wine companies handle this wine with care and of course Grandcru wines are one of these companies that can purchase directly and directly.
