Characteristics of La Faraona

La Faraona is made of 100% Mencía, the icon of Bierzo. The subtleness of this wine will compensate the extremely low production of the most mysterious vine in this winery in 2012. After quite a controversial year in what climate is concerned, the region of Bierzo surprised us with admirably expressive wines, confirming the singular character of the wines from this peculiar winemaking region and of its typical variety, Mencía, which keeps surprising us. To the combination of soils, altitudes and exposure, in this vintage we can add the diversity in the ripenning of the bunches. A vintage that will provide structured wines with delicate aromatic nuances. Very rich and really elegant wines.

Tasting notes La Faraona

The great fine wine of the area is a promising vintage which is nothing less than that expected of it.  Extremely mysterious because of its violets and dark fruit that tell the story of an indescribable plot.  On the palate, a square tannic full of energy and excellent acidity promise a few structured years in search of light.  At thy feet!

D.O. 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".

Other wines from D.O. D.O. Bierzo

To talk of Descendientes de J. Palacios is to talk about Ricardo Perez and his uncle Álvaro Palacios, both passionate about simplifying the treatment of the vineyards and the wine production process, leading them to become pioneers of Biodynamic viticulture. The winery currently boasts 30 hectares of vineyards spread over 200 different plots, home to old vines and steep soils, which combines the organic with the immaterial in the constant search for the definition and purity of their wines.
