2012 Palacios Remondo Propiedad

Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate, April 2015

“The 2012 Rioja Tinto Propiedad is now pure Garnacha (it's a wine that has changed over time, and it's now sourced from five plots of old Garnacha vines at the top of their property). Despite being from a warm and dry harvest, it feels fresher than the 2011 I tasted last year. It matured in French oak barrels for 14 months. Bright ruby-colored, similar to the La Montesa, it is a little more backward and closed, more serious. It's pure fruit juice with the earthy, silky and harmonious notes of pure Garnacha that is full of cherries, strawberries and red currants. The palate is refined, elegant and sinewy, silky, transparent and focused. It is a delicious, explosion of pure red berries. There is an extra degree of elegance and finesse when tasted next to the 2012 La Montesa. I think this wine is finally coming into its own. 21,500 bottles produced.”

2011 Palacios Remondo Propiedad

Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast, July 2016

“Closed and in need of air at first, this takes on a ripe, medicinal, almost candied red-fruit nose. Next up in a full, wide-bodied palate with chunky plum and rasberry flavors. This old-vines Garnacha is ripe, tasty and all about the fruit. Drink through 2020.”

2011 Palacios Remondo Propiedad

Josh Raynolds, Vinous, December 2015

“Deep, bright red. Ripe red berries, sassafras and candied flowers on the pungent nose, with mineral and spice notes adding lift. Spicy and supple on the palate, offering bitter cherry and raspberry liqueur flavors and a touch of rhubarb. Becomes fleshier with air and finishes with strong thrust, fine-grained tannins and lingering notes of lavender pastille and spices.”

2016 Palacios Remondo La Vendimia

Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate, February 2018

“The juicy and fruit-driven 2016 La Vendimia is a blend of 50/50 Garnacha and Tempranillo (the percentage of Garnacha has been increasing) from different organically farmed vineyards; it fermented in stainless steel and matured in oak barrels for four months. Álvaro Palacios would like to increase the amount of Garnacha, but they do not have more organically farmed Garnacha (there are less than 4,000 hectares of Garnacha in Rioja Baja, which they now call Rioja Oriental, something that Álvaro started), but they have very good Tempranillo. The nose is very Mediterranean, with notes of herbs and spices, showing typicity of both grapes. It's soft and approachable, pleasant and fresh, with some tannins. They produce no less than 350,000 bottles and 2,000 magnums of this wine.”

2015 Palacios Remondo La Montesa

Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate, February 2018

“Always a sure value, the 2015 La Montesa, has been increasing the amount of Garnacha in its blend, and here it reached 92% with the remaining 8% being Tempranillo. La Montesa is the name of a large estate where different lieux-dits, or parajes in Spanish, contribute to the blend of Valtomelloso, Valfrio and Valviejo. The grapes were hand-picked throughout October, then destemmed, crushed and fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel vats, with remontage, where it also underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine matured in barrel for 12 months before being bottled. There is a big jump from La Vendimia to La Montesa in finesse, freshness and subtleness. The tannins are ultrafine, and the flavors are intense and deep, with some spicy undertones and a very tasty finish. Amazingly good. A whopping 650,000 bottles and some other formats produced. The quality is amazing for the volume, and it's also a good value.”

2014 Palacios Remondo La Montesa

Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate, August 2016

“I tasted from two different bottles of the 2014 La Montesa Crianza, one that had been decanted for 18 hours and one that was popped and poured. The wine had opened up, but showed no signs of fatigue or oxidation. The just-opened bottle felt a little more compact, serious and a little backward. It had only been in bottle for less than two months when I tasted it and it didn't feel dizzy at all. The amount of Garnacha is growing in most of the wines and here, it's already 85%, with the balance provided by Tempranillo; in 2015 ,the proportion is even higher at 92% and 8%. It fermented in stainless steel vats with natural yeasts, including malolactic, and matured in barrique for one year before being fined and bottled. 2013 and 2014 were challenging vintages, and many wines were not produced. In 2014 (and 2013), there is no Propiedad, so those grapes were used for the La Montesa. The palate shows great balance, and the overall effect of the higher percentage of Garnacha is a more elegant, streamlined wine that tasty with great freshness. A whopping 660,000 bottles were produced, which is remarkable for this quality and price; it does feel like a more expensive wine...”
