Palacios Remondo White Blend Rioja la Montesa 2009

Member Review by jsfishmom:

Red berries up front, clean licorice finish. Mild to medium tannins. Good solid red that is a great change of pace. Great to take to a party.

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

This red shows a fine balance of flesh and backbone, offering a mix of plum, cherry and loam flavors framed by licorice and spice. Not a showy wine, but dense and harmonious. Drink now through 2016.

The 2009 La Montesa is a blend of 65% Garnacha, 30% Tempranillo and 5% Mazuelo picked by hand from the namesake vineyard and aged 20% in new oak. It has a well-defined strawberry, Morello and shortcake-scented bouquet infused with fennel and licorice. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, expressive red berry fruit tinged with burnt toast and white pepper, and an elegant, caressing finish that speaks of its place. This is a very commendable Rioja. Drink now–2018.

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.

The deep ruby-colored 2001 Crianza Rioja La Montesa exhibits a gorgeous perfume of sweet cherries, spice box, and blueberries. With beautiful purity, medium body, and abundant fruit, this elegant 2001 is an excellent bargain. Drink it over the next 3ndash;5 years.

Alvaro Palacio, has returned to his familyrsquo;s winery, Palacio Remondo, in Rioja, after the death of his father Joseacute; in 2000. Alvaro Palacio studied both at Chateau Petrus and in the Napa Valley. He is most famous for his groundbreaking winemaking in Priorat and his single vineyard Garnacha blend ldquo;Lrsquo;Ermitardquo; which sells for $400 a bottle. The 2001 La Montesa is Alvarorsquo;s first effort and it is a steal. Deeply coloured, dense, and richly perfumed, the wine has a more complex blend than many Rioja reds made from 30% Garnacha, 40% Tempranillo, 15% Graciano and 15% Mazuelo.

Full deep red. Aromatic, fresh nose combines black raspberry, cherry and a floral note. Sweet, lush and fruity, with noteworthy fat and richness. Plump and layered in the mouth, but nicely shaped by harmonious acidity. Finishes with very smooth tannins and lingering fruit.
