Another dynamite vintage has just arrived at The Wine Buyer, with a 93 point rating from the Wine Advocate. Crafted from native Mencia, the Petalos is assembled from old hillside vineyards from across Bierzo's western edge. The wine is vinified for immediate appeal, but it retains the estate's signature finesse and restraint. Constantly striving to make Spain's greatest wines, Alvaro Palacios has placed considerable focus on Bierzo with their incredibly steep hillside vineyards, distinctive terroirs and most importantly, ancient Mencia vines.

Rating
"The aromas, if subtle, are phenomenal, very complete and balanced, with an extra degree of complexity when compared with the 2013. The harvest was a little healthier without being easy (or dry). There is great volume in the palate, fleshy, juicy and rich without being heavy, medium-bodied, and somehow similar to the 2012 even if it still needs to develop further complexity. There's always a subdued minerality, a texture and mouthfeel difficult to find in wines of this price level." The Wine Advocate, 93 Points

Wine maker notes
Embodying the promise and spirit of the next generation of Spanish winemakers, Alvaro Palacios is consistently heralded for creating some of the top wines of the modern era. One of nine children born to the owners of Rioja's respected Palacios Remondo, Alvaro studied in Bordeaux and worked under Jean-Pierre Moueix at Chateau Pétrus. His estate wines have become a reference point in the seductive region of Bierzo. Of the Petalos, Luis Gutierrez from The Wine Advocate stated it's the Palacio "I'd buy for my cellar" as the wines, dating back to the inaugural release of 2003 just get better with age!
