Characteristics of La Montesa Reserva Selección Especial

Palacios Remondo La Montesa is a red wine from La Rioja produced by Bodegas Palacios Remondo. The technical director, Alvaro Palacios, is known to produce one of the most coveted wines from Spain, L'Ermita, in his Priorat winery.

Palacios Remondo La Montesa is a blend of typical varieties of La Rioja: Tempranillo, Garnacha and Mazuelo.

The grapes come from vineyards planted at an altitude of 550 metres, at the foot of Mount Yerga, in the municipality of Alfaro, in lower Rioja.

The soils are mainly limestone and clay with many stones. The climate is Mediterranean with Atlantic influences, with a large temperature difference between winter and summer, allowing an excellent ripening of the grapes.

Harvesting is done manually, using periods of little sunlight to keep the grapes fresh. Once in the winery, the grapes are destemmed and go through a selection process before maceration at low temperature for 23 days to extract all the aromas.

Palacios Remondo La Montesa is fermented in stainless steel tanks for three weeks. Once, it has passed through French oak barrels (90%) and American oak barrels, (10%) it is aged for 12 months. 20% are new barrels, 30% barrels have contained one wine previously, 25% have contained 2 wines and 25% have contained 3 wines.

Tasting notes La Montesa Reserva Selección Especial

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.
2010 was considered the perfect vintage after some very good years. An optimal growth cycle, without incidents regarding the health of the vineyards. The harvest took place during a magnificent state of the vines and with a moderate production, with good fruit setting and slow ripening. A great year with excellent ageing potential, which resulted in spicy and fruity wines, with a very good structure and acidity.
Sight Intense and bright cherry colour with dense tears. Nose Intense, complex and elegant aromas of ripe red fruit which emerge together with good notes of wood that provide a set of well integrated aromatic sensations. Taste Voluminous attack, with a silky and tasty mid palate. Well integrated notes of fruit and wood. Well balanced tannins. Excellent acidity. Long and very persistent finish. A very elegant wine, a pleasure.
Sight Intense cherry color. Nose Intense, with notes of ripe red fruit and well integrated wood substance. Taste Silky, elegant and balanced.

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.
