Descendientes de J. Palacios

Ricardo Perez Palacios is one of the great architects of a quiet revolution is taking place in the, so far, Bierzo region quite stagnant. Chelo is the son of Palacios, of the dynasty known Palacios (Remondo) of the Rioja, and this adventure has helped his famous uncle, Alvaro Palacios, well known for its wines of Priorat. Ricardo, 25, whom everyone knows by 'titin', has a long experience in France, Chile and the United States, and the wine have lived since birth, and having visited a lot of great producers of France along with Alvaro. Passionate dedication to the two sides Palacios Bierzo are born, not good Mencia grape wines, but the first great wines of great area, perhaps one day the Priorat northwest.

4 /5

The wine has aged for 10 months on French oak. It is a full fruity and powerful Mencia wine. F ol, round and fresh flavor with aromas of ripe black and red fruits like black cherry, blueberry, blackberry, ripe raspberries and strawberries. But also slightly spicy and a touch of earthy with refined tannins. The aftertaste is long and with beautiful fruit and some notes of vanilla due to the wood aging. This 100% mencia is best when it is served somewhat cool.

The Petalos won 1st place at the Prix de Sommelier (winner of the red wines) and the 2017 received no less than 93 points from the Wine Spectator and 93 Points from James Suckling.

You know: Pétalos = petals.

Pétalos es el vino de Alvaro Palacios en el Bierzo. El color ya deja entrever su nariz: profundamente aromática. Considerado un vino muy femenino, toda la fragancia de la fase olfativa desemboca en un paladar suave sin complejidad tánica y una cierta acidez. Fresco y afrutado, satisface a paladares poco sofisticados.

A pure mencía with wild strawberries, black pepper and underbrush. Balanced and pretty red showing subtle berry character throughout. Silky tannins.

Medium ruby colour. Fresh, floral black cherry nose is quite beautiful. Amazing palate is fresh and vivid, with intense notes of pure black cherries and olives. Smooth yet muscular tannins and a long drying finish.
