Details

The exquisite Palacios Remondo Propiedad is made from the oldest vines of the winery.

A respected, venerable wine dinasty from La Rioja, Palacios Remondo owns more than 100 hectares of vineyards in the town of Alfaro. Soils have very low levels of organic matter and are composed of clay, limestone and pebble stones. The composition is quite similar to the famed "galets roulées" terroir from Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Interestingly, this Spanish red wine is a single varietal Grenache, a variety that was widely planted in Rioja before the unfortunate rise of the Tempranillo monoculture.

Harvested at dusk, the grapes were meticulously selected and fully destemmed prior to being fermented. Alcoholic fermentation took place in wooden vats with periodic pump-overs and punch-downs. The process lasted 28 days.

Then Palacios Remondo Propiedad 2017 completed malolactic fermentation in oak barrels.

Finally, it was aged for 18 months in half new and half 2nd year French oak barrels. It was not fined or filtered before its bottling.

Decant this Crianza red wine 1 hour before drinking. 40.000 bottles produced.

Additional Information

Appearance

The red wine Palacios Remondo Propiedad has a very bright cherry colour with a garnet hue at the rim.

Nose

Expressive and delightfully pure notes of ripe red berries, dried plums, flowers, lavender and underbush, typical of and old-vines Grenache from La Rioja, underpinned by aromas of spices, dim mineral remembrances and some balsamic remembrances.

Palate

Very distinguished, this red wine from the Palacios Remondo winery shows an exceptional balance between fruit and acidity. The wine has a smooth, wonderful texture and a totally individual character. Notes of strawberries and Amarena cherries, some touches of clove, fennel, aniseed and vanille, sophisticated mineral undertones and remembrances of lavender and dry earth. This Rioja Crianza has a very long, delicately mineral finish.

Our personal opinion

Classy and sophisticated, Palacios Remondo Propiedad 2017 also shows great potential for improvement - if properly stored.

    Astonishing balance, depth and complexity. One of Spain's finest garnachas.

    Tasted blind, this Rioja would beat 90% of high-end Chateauneufs any time. World-class garnacha.
