Palacios Remondo Grenache Blend Rioja la Vendimia 2008
A superb New-Style Rioja made by the magician Alvaro Palacios; with far moreGarnacha than one may expect (50/50 Garnacha and Tempranillo) the wine is madeby whole-bunch fermentation and is aged only briefly in oak barrels. If hebelieved in such things, Alvaro would describe it as a 'Joven'; the emphasis iscertainly on the exuberant, with soft hedge-row flavours, and gentle spice tothe fore. With Mediterranean charm, and a certain come-hither, forward,approach to life, this is a distinctly superior every-day drinker. (Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
Not my favorite Rioja but it a very complete and well-balanced wine!
Nice textbook Rioja - well rounded and smoother tannins than most.
Fresh and grapey in a pleasant way. Clean medium body with a moderate, soft finish. Excellent value
Very smooth! Great with chocolate!
Three and a half glasses
