Review:

Bierzo or Burgundy? The question we ask ourselves on uncorking and then pouring out the first glass. Definitely Bierzo, but a special Bierzo at that. An undoubtedly fragrant wine, high quality, extremely pleasant, boasting what very few other wines can compete with in this price range.

Pétalos is made using grapes from very old vines, planted at very high altitudes, in the Corullón district, where the soils are primarily slate, in contrast to the majority in the area which are naturally clay. It therefore starts off with certain specific conditions already in place, despite being thought of, as occurs with Burgundy, as a regional wine, and an introduction to the Bierzo. So it is, but just with a distinct personality.

Broadly speaking, Pétalos is a wine with an Atlantic character and predominantly acidic fruit - a common occurrence in this region with so few hours of sunshine. Nevertheless, it is a lovely sweet-touched wine, with a dash of sugary lusciousness. Pétalos is along the lines of the great Moncerbal, crystalline and fluid, and offers suggestions of concentrated fruit, not overly ripe (the yields of these vineyards are extremely low), mineral traces, graphite notes, hummus and a balsamic background which gains in intensity with time in the glass; smoky notes too, wild flowers, (violets, rockrose blossom), fresh wafts ... which add to its aromatic complexity and define its profile, as a perfumed and feminine wine.

On the palate its great acidity contrasts with a very pleasant velvety feel. The wine is powerful, intense, oily, with hints of aromatic plants which confer on it a subtly bitter undertone. The sensation of smoothness is the feature that best defines the palate… and its name: Pétalos (Petals).

Le vin a de belles qualités, tant aromatiques que gustatives, mais il est dominé par une acidité qui le réserve, pour moi, à la consommation avec certains plats. Pas mon favori...

Un vin unique. Difficile de se faire un avis, finalement. S'il n'y avait pas une petite amertume qui me perturbe, je lui mettait 5 étoiles. Je vais essayer d'en faire vieillir quelques bouteilles, pour voir comment ça évolue. Je suis curieux...

C'est notre préféré. Nous sommes allés dans un restaurant 2 étoiles en Belgique et ils le proposaient à la carte. Nous l'avons choisi et le sommelier nous a dit que si nous connaissions ce vin il ne discutait même pas avec nous , pour lui il vaut les grands vins français !

Bierzo, Spain

The small town of Corullón is set in a landscape of hills, amidst ancient slate-covered slopes, in a land of monks and pilgrimages (Compostela is not far away) and amongst Mencía grapes - an exceptional setting which Ricardo Pérez Palacios and Álvaro Palacios (Álvaro Palacios, Priorat) discovered in1999.
