Characteristics of Plácet Valtomelloso

Herencia Remondo Plácet Valtomelloso is a white wine produced by Bodegas Palacios Remondo in the D.O Rioja.

The winery is located in Alfaro, in the far east of the La Rioja (La Rioja Baja). This family winery with a long wine tradition is aided by the great oenologist Álvaro Palacios, the architect of famous wines such as L'Ermita.

Herencia Remondo Plácet Valtomelloso is 100% produced from the grape varietal Viura. The grapes originate from 20 year old vines in sandy loam soils on gently sloped terraces.

For production, after being destemmed and macerated for 8 hours, the must is fermented at a low temperature for with its lees oval oak barrels (smaller barrels).

In the same oval barrels Herencia Remondo Plácet Valtomelloso is aged for 11 months on its lees.

Tasting notes Plácet Valtomelloso

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 scarce rainfall, spring started with a lot of rain, which favoured the growth cycle of the vine. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in great, 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 defined by a voluminous vintage that can be enjoyed from its youth.
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.
