Quiñón de Valmira 2015 Price € 413.00
Alvaro Palacios is one of the most renowned and famous wine-makers in the world. After gathering his many years of experience at Chateau Petrus, Chateau Le Pin and Chateau La Grange, he implemented them in his impressive projects in Spain.
After the great pioneering work of setting up his own winery in the Priorat, Alvaro Palacios also took over the Bodega Palacios Remondo in the Rioja, which had been in the possession of his family for more than 150 years, began with dramatic changes and took them to the elite of Rioja within a short time. In recent years, the Palacios Remondo Propiedad has been rated among the best of Rioja's best wines in the Spanish press.
The Quinon de Valmira is a pure Garnacha of 30 year old vines from the individual "Paraje Quiñón de Valmira" at Alfaro (D.O.Ca. Rioja). Like L'Ermita, Quinon de Valmira is only served to long-standing, good customers.
The Palacios Remondo Quinon de Valmira is the new first wine of Alvaro Palacios Rioja-Winery. Just for the homoeopathic dose of about 900 bottles sufficient, he brings with him an L'Ermita from Rioja on the market. The wine is a real secret tip! Only 6 bottles were finally allocated to us.
Sensory features: First fruits of Alvaro Palacios’ labours to restore Rioja Baja’s traditional Garnachas to glory. Bush vines, grown at 615m, at the limit of ripening. Shallow red clay soil over calcium carbonate. Alvaro Palacios Quiñon de Valmira 2015 is a pale garnet colour with gloriously floral aromas. Equally seductive palate superbly ripe with a lift of orange peel and grain of dark chocolate. Very refined; Pinot-like. A great beginning; a vineyard to watch.
