Descendientes de J. Palacios

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.

Having tried and 2 previous vintages of the Pétalos del Bierzo, and still not be a close friend of Parker's opinion, I dare say that it is these wines that feeling purchases to save money, so rich is and how little it costs.
If you have not tried the Mencia, the ideal place to discover wine. If you've tried. . . Pétalos del Bierzo sure you've drunk. Bless you! :)

5/5

It is one of the best wines in Spain and also has a very attractive price. For me it is one of the wines of reference, that kind of wine that I always have in mind when I have guests at home or when I'm a guest in someone's home. How lucky to have a red wine with the quality seal Palacios at such a reasonable price! It is an indispensable wine in all wineries.
