Characteristics of Plácet Valtomelloso

Plácet de Valtomelloso is a single-variety Viura white wine produced by the Palacios Remondo winery in the D.O C. Rioja in Alfaro, Spain.

The grapes used to make the Plácet de Valtomelloso wine come from the La Montesa estate with predominantly calcium soils and vines aged around 30 years old. They are cultivated using the principles of ecological agriculture and lie on a long, gentle slope on Mount Yerga.

The harvest is carried out manually with a strict selection process. When the grapes reach the winery, they are partially destemmed and gently pressed to begin alcoholic fermentation in oval foudres, at low temperatures and with native yeasts. The resulting wine ages in oval oak tanks for around 10 months, depending on the vintage.

Renowned and admired winemaker Álvaro Palacios has a gift for interpreting the landscape and extracting the best from each of the varieties in the vineyards he works. Plácet de Valtomelloso is the only white wine he produces. It is just as delicate as his other wines and made with the same care that go into his renowned reds. This Viura (Macabeo) is meaty and elegant, gastronomic and distinctive. Not to be missed!

Tasting notes Plácet Valtomelloso

Plácet de Valtomelloso 2018 is a white wine with aromas of white stone fruits on the nose, accompanied by subtle floral notes and an influence from its time in the barrel. On the palate it is silky and full-bodied, bringing back the fruity subtlety in a long and elegant aftertaste with a balanced and fresh acidity.
Plácet Valtomelloso 2017 is a mature white wine with structure and harmony. This vintage is notable for displaying a balance on the nose between the aromas of ripe white fruit with floral notes and the toasted and spicy notes of aging. On the palate it is silky, with volume and a very lingering finish.
High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.
Sight Golden yellow, expressive and clean. Nose Intense aromas of fruit and citrus fruit combined with well-integrated toasted notes. Structured and elegant. Taste Flavoursome and balanced. Mid-palate is fleshly and unctuous providing pleasant citrus and fruity notes. Very good acidity. Persistent finish.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
Sight Pale golden yellow with green trims. Clean and bright. Fine tears. Nose Intense aromas. Outstanding aromas of white flowers. Aromas of fruit very much present along with tropical fruit, white fruits and citrus. Touches provided by the oak. Taste Very tasty wine. Dense and dry mid palate, but fresh at the same time. The aromas of fruits and especially citrus reappear. Very good acidity. Very good and long finish.

    Imágenes y situación D.O.Ca. Rioja

    The new and latest stage of Álvaro Palacios as the lead of the family-run winery. As an outspoken advocate of the concept of cru wines, he has turned the land and the vineyard into the identity mark of the wines of Palacios Remondo and into the business success of the winery. Since he joined the family winery in 2000 along with his sister Chelo, and with a renewed significance of the current vineyard they own, the style of the wines of Palacios Remondo has been noticeably transformed in a few years. Mainly with the objective of giving greater importance to the local variety, the Red Grenache.
