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.

Tasting notes Pétalos del Bierzo

Pétalos del Bierzo has found the fluidity it has been given by the excellent 2016 vintage with a predominant Atlantic climate.  A wine with an aromatic character of violets and red fruits that perfectly combine with a light structure in the mouth. A wine to be introduced to the fantastic region of El Bierzo.
The 2015 vintage was characterised by low rainfall. The lack of water throughout the year brought the vegetative cycle of the vine forward and it was not until days before the harvest that it started to rain considerably. This caused the grape to hydrate and lead to a somewhat fresher vintage than what it initially seemed. The continental character that this vintage looked like it was going to have was mitigated by the rain before the harvest, balancing the phenolic ripeness, qualifying the vintage as excellent. The wines of this vintage have an excellent balance between structure, acidity and texture in the mouth. A vintage that can age perfectly.
The 2014 vintage was characterised by a marked Atlantic climate. The rains and the cold in autumn prevailed, leading to a somewhat warmer than usual winter. Spring started mildly, with a two-week delay in budding and the rains were sporadic, with a total water accumulation of 1,000 mm that gives the vintage its Atlantic character. In July and August, temperatures rose and rainfall was scarce, leaving the grapes to ripen in an excellent way and giving the vintage a little more structure. At the end of August, they suffered high temperatures, and in September, the traditional rains made the harvest quite difficult. The wines of this vintage are characterised by their great complexity. A wine with an Atlantic and fresh character and a structure provided by the warmer end of cycle. Wines with a long life ahead.
Sight Cherry red with violet edges. Good intensity. Nose Powerful and aromatic. Floral notes of jasmine and violet notes of cinnamon and red fruit. Taste Good acidity, it is intense and rather oily. Very soft and nice.
Sight Pretty cherry red. Dark, clean and bright, with a violet rim. A fine, slow falling tear. Nose An elevated intensity nose, with a marked varietal character. Lots of red and ripe dark fruit, accompanied by intense and aromatic floral notes. Once opened, it gains complexity and a surprising minerality as well as mellow and elegant toasted notes. A light undertone reminiscent of shrubs. Taste A very expressive Bierzo wine, very flavourful. A good, broad attack, with a long, velvety mid palate. Fresh and intense. Lots of fruit and flowers with tantalizing spiced notes. Good acidity and polished tannins. A long and persistent finish. A great value wine.
Sight Beautiful, clean and bright, dark cherry colour with violet edges. Thin, slow-falling tears. Nose Highly intense nasal aromas with marked varietal features. Its abundant notes of red and black ripe fruit are released along with intense and aromatic floral notes. When it opens up, it becomes more complex and a surprising minerality is noticed along with soft and elegant toasted hints. Light background with notes of scrubland and undergrowth. Taste An expressive and very tasty wine from Bierzo. Good and wide attack with a long velvety, fresh and intense mid palate. Its abundant notes of fruit at flowers are nuanced by mellow spicy notes. Good acidity and polished tannins. Long and persistent finish. Excellent value (and pleasure) for money.
Sight Deep and dark cherry colour with purple reflections. A wine with a medium-high robe and good tears. Nose Marked and elegant varietal aromas. Its abundant notes of ripe red and black fruit are released along with intense and aromatic floral notes. When it opens up, the wine becomes more complex and a surprising minerality appears along with soft and elegant toasted and smoked aromas. Its light background shows aromas of bushes and undergrowth.

Its abundant notes of fruit and flowers are nuanced by mellow hints of sweet spices. It shows a good acidity and polished tannins. It has a good finish with a good and very nice persistence.  A seductive wine.
Sight Intense dark cherry red colour. High layer. Abundant legs that stain the glass. Nose Very good aromatic intensity, with good toasted aromas slightly marked and light fruity notes. When it opens up, the ripe black fruit gains in intensity and becomes the star along with the milky notes, the subtle floral notes and a pleasant balsamic hints.
Taste Good attack. Fresh, very tasty, sweet and intense wine with a silky mid palate. Tannins not completely polished yet and a correct acidity. Long finish with fruity aftertaste.
Sight Dark red with violet tones. Nose Floral intensity, appear undergrowth notes and a very mineral background. Taste In the mouth, we find everything we perceive in the nose: lots of flowers along with fresh blueberries and balsamic notes. The tannins just perceived. Step velvety.

    Production area D.O. Bierzo

    Winery Descendientes de J. Palacios

    Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.  Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.
