Alvaro Palacios

Ein respektvoller Umgang mit der Natur, wiederbelebte Tradition und eine unfassbare Liebe prägen seine Arbeit und seine Weine. Er gründete eine
Bodega im Priorat - mit teils 100 Jahre alten Rebanlagen - und kultiviert autochtone Rebsorten wie Mencia im Bierzo und Garnacha im Priorat. Pala-
cios sicherte sich die besten Lagen des Anbaugebietes und verhalf dem Priorat zu enormem Aufstieg. Alvaro Palacios besitzt in Spanien drei Wein-
güter: im Rioja, im Priorat und im Bierzo. Die Rioja-Weine sind sehr rund, vollmundig, von alten Reben und mit kleinen Erträgen geerntet.

Petalos 2017 Bierzo D.O. 100% Mencia Alvaro Palacios
92 Parker Punkte für Jg 2011
Luis Gutierrez August 2013
At the end of the day, if I really have to recommend a wine from this collection, the one I’d buy for my cellar, it will be the 2011 Petalos del Bierzo. It is 95% Mencia mixed in the field with 3% of white grapes and the rest Alicante Bouschet and other reds, fermented after de-stemming in open wood and inox vats and aged ten months in French barrels, of which 20% are new. Eighty percent of the grapes are grown on slate in the Corullon vineyards, with different altitudes and orientations, and the remaining 20% come from clay soils from the valley. It all adds to the complexity of the wine. The wine is very aromatic and flowery (violets), almost heady, with clear notes of blueberries and licorice. The oak is perfectly integrated, almost imperceptible, save for a touch of spices and a lactic hint denoting a very young wine. It has a medium body, with a thick silky texture, is very tasty, with some acidic strawberry flavors. This is one of my go-to wines at restaurant lists, as it offers very good value for money and is widely available in Spain (and elsewhere, I hope!), as 320,000 bottles were produced. This could very well be the best Petalos produced to date. Drink now through 2019.

La Montesa Rioja Crianza 2015

92+ Parker Punkte für 2012
Luis Gutierrez Verkostungsnotiz Dez. 2013:

2012 was one of the driest and warmest years on record (the third driest August since 1961, the fourth warmest since 1961). The 2012 Rioja Crianza la Montesa is a blend of 80% Garnacha, 15% Tempranillo and 5% Mazuelo (Cariñena) from grapes grown in the La Montesa estate in Alfaro, Rioja Baja where the red Garnacha reigns over Tempranillo. The wine is getting lighter and more ethereal, but this ripe 2012 has a heady nose of cherries in liqueur but also black and sour cherries, unnoticeable oak plus just a pinch of dark spices. The palate is soft and silky, with ultra-fine tannins, great acidity and balance. Again, a great showing for La Montesa. This wine is a true bargain; typical Rioja at unbeatable prices. They are transforming their trellised vines to head-pruned. Hard to beat as a great value. 700,000 bottles produced.

Alvaro Palacios Les Terrasses Priorat DOC 2016

92-94 Punkte vom Wine Advocate für den Alvaro Palacios Les Terrasses Priorat DOC 2016Verkostungsnotiz von Luis Gutierrez vom 27. April 2018:

The still unbottled sample of the Garnacha and Cariñena blend 2016 Les Terrasses Velles Vinyes has vibrant acidity in a warm year when ripening stopped as the vines blocked and stopped producing sugar and maintained the acidity. The grapes were small because the year had also been very dry. It's juicy and with good ripeness and some dusty tannins, reminiscent of the dusty roads among the vineyards of Priorat along with that decomposed slate. There will be 116,000 bottles of the 2016.

91 Sucklingpunkte für den Alvaro Palacios Les Terrasses Priorat DOC 2016Verkostungsnotiz James Suckling vom 21. Juli 2019:

A bright and fruity wine with fine tannins and a fresh blueberry and blackberry character. Medium body, linear and focused. Low tannins and more built on fruit. Acid balance. Enjoy. Drink now.
