Characteristics of Pétalos del Bierzo

Pétalos del Bierzo is a red wine from the Bierzo prepared by the Descendientes de J. Palacios winery. It is a single variety of Mencia.

The grapes used comes from plots of very old vines, aged between 50 and 90 years old. These are underperforming, making the fruit of high quality.

The vineyards that give rise to Pétalos del Bierzo are planted mainly on slate floors and are located on slopes.

The harvest is done manually and the first selection occurs in the same vineyard. In the winery, the grapes are destemmed and fermented for about 25 days in open wooden vats of stainless steel.

Malolactic fermentation is carried out for two months in closed vats. Subsequently, Pétalos del Bierzo is aged for 10 months in French oak barrels before bottling, it is filtered and clarified.

This wine is notably prestigious as the 2011 vintage of Pétalos del Bierzo was recognized as the best value Spanish wine of the year by Robert Parker.

Descendientes de J. Palacios is owned by Ricardo Perez Palacios, the nephew of renowned winemaker Alvaro Palacios, who is known for his great work in the Priorat and assists the family winery.

Reviews

D.O. Bierzo

Winery Descendientes de J. Palacios

In recent years, winemakers and developers have settled in the DO Bierzo with very plausible innovative ideas, investing heavily in local wineries, resulting in the production of personal and unique wines. There is no doubt that El Bierzo has become a trendy and cool D.O, aided by the spicy, delicate and velvety Mencia grape, whose character and great capacity of expression of terroir is undoubtedly the regions best asset. Even many compare it to the Pinot Noir, which together with the small scale style of production and topography of its vineyards, the traditional form of the Burgundian bottle used, and the original use of the names of towns and places in their best wines, resulted in this wine region being given the nickname of "little Spanish burgundy".
