Descendientes de J Palacios Petalos 2019

15% abv

Made from 60 year-old vines, and farmed biodynamically, the latest triumph from Alvaro Palacios, completing his triptych of Spanish vineyards ( the others, of course, are in Rioja and Priorat). The intriguing Mencia grape is an early ripener, but, with old vine pedigree, holds a wonderful depth of colour and is far from reminiscent to Cabernet Franc, as was once alleged. A fascinating nose of herbs and spice gives way to fruits dominated by damson and dark cherries; the fascination is held on the palate with notes of tea, bitter chocolate, macerated fruit and even something a little chalky evidenced.

Álvaro Palacios and his nephew Ricardo came to Bierzo in 1999. Their arrival brought much deserved attention to this old wine region and resulted in its revival.

The sum of the Bierzo landscapes, their vegetation and diverse soils are condensed and asserted in Pétalos, a young, fragrant wine which is able to express all the hues and shades of the region. The fruit for Villa de Corullon comes exclusively from the hill of Corullon and includes exquisite vineyards of Fontelas and San Martin. Las Lamas is a single vineyard wine made from 120 year old vines that typically shows masculine power whilst Moncerbal is more feminine and scented, reflecting the silica and quartzite terroirs of this steep vineyard. La Faraona is the queen of them all, reigning at 900 m altitude and showing exquisite perfume, seductive minerality and a graceful, elegant backbone. This is a wine to keep and to treasure.
