Palacios focused his efforts on the Crianza, La Montesa, a Garnacha-based blend from south-facing vineyards grown on the lower slopes of the Yerga mountain range, in pebble and clay soils. In the best vintages, Palacios also makes a top wine, Propiedad, a departure from his father’s use of traditional designations Reserva and Gran Reserva. The estate’s only white wine, Plácet, is made in small quantities from 100% barrel-fermented Viura, planted on the estate in 1989. The final wine, La Vendimia, with its eye-catching, contemporary label, is a fresh, fruit-driven value wine made from Tempranillo and  Garnacha. Palacios is committed to honoring his father’s memory by taking the estate’s quality to new heights, as evidenced by the suberb recent vintages.  Under his inspired leadership, Palacios Remondo is now a rising star of Rioja. http://www.foliowine.com/winery_pages/25_palacios_remondo/palacios_remondo.html Read less

Lovely nose with some milk chocolate notes floating under slightly brambly, slightly herbal wild cherry, wild strawberry fruit. There are also nice hints of smoke and almost flint/metallic elements as well. Rather bright on entry with a fair amount of covering flesh here. This is rich and well balanced, rather suave for a Crianza with a lovely core of herb inflected red fruit on the palate. The finish shows brighter fruit, more strawberry with some vanilla, tight if small tannins and lingering acidity. A pretty nice wine, not terribly complex but it feels rather expensive in the mouth. 87pts

Beyond the label, sexy and intriguing, under the cork, firm and tight yet yielding, lies this charming wine , that if you give it a couple of mnutes of deep thought will seduce you, take you home and rob you. It has ripe and fragrant fruits and a dark spicy undercurrent, a nose of tar and roses. The palate is supple but structured. I now find myself on a cold footpath, I think it is Thursday morning, I'm holding my undone pants up with my right hand, my shirt is untucked, a cold footpath on a street I'm not familiar with holds my feet from the fire of the Earth's mantle, and in my left hand I'm holding the my only clue. A fresh young cork, one end stained the grape colour of a bubbleugum wrapper. If I still had my wallet I'd go and find another bottle and see if I couldn't remember her name this time. 43/43. Cellar for as long as it takes to drink it.

James Suckling: 90pts - Winemaker Notes - Named after the hillside vineyard located on the northeastern slope of the Yergamountains in eastern Rioja, La Montesais a blend of the red grape varieties that grow organically on the Palacios Remondoestate. Rubyred in colorwith an amaranthine halo, renowned winemaker Alvaro Palacios describes this wine as containing complex aromas of syrup-covered cherries, fresh nectarines, quince paste and delicate notes of wood, white pepper and flint. On the palate the wine is unctuous and voluminous with soft tannins that are presented over a foundation of mixed berries, hints of white pepper, blood oranges and dark chocolate. Meant to enjoy now or age up to 10 years, this wine is very versatile and pairs well with almost any type of cuisine.

Intensiv leuchtende rubinrote Farbe mit guter Ablagerung. In seiner Nase frisch und ausgewogen mit Nuancen wilder Beeren, Konfitüre und Schokolade. Zudem sind für das Holz typische Röst- und Vanillearomen festzustellen. Am Gaumen offenbart sich dieser Rioja Crianza robust, grosszügig und mit einer optimalen Struktur und zeigt sich im Nachgeschmack körper- und tanninreich.

This medium-bodied red has enticing berry, cherry, spice and smoky aromas. The round, tart cherry fruit is light, and the wine has a long, easy finish. It's an outstanding transitional red perfect for the change of seasons.This medium-bodied red has enticing berry, cherry, spice and smoky aromas.
