Review

La Montesa is a well-defined, refined wine, signed by the Palacios family, wine artisans wherever they make it, in the Priorat, Bierzo or La Rioja. With a little more Grenache added to each vintage, it is a flavoursome and refreshing wine, raised on the radiant slopes of Mount Yerga, in the highest part of the Alfaro municipality, in 'La Rioja Oriental'. In the words of Luis Gutiérrez, "it does feel like a more expensive wine".

Good for a late afternoon with friends!

Good for a late afternoon with friends! A wine that gas livid tannins and quite some acidity. But still in the high end!

Reviews rate this bottle highly and now I know why.

Reviews rate this bottle highly and now I know why. A lighter cherry colour on pouring. Clear around edges. Doesn't cling to the glass as much as I would expect for a 14%. Medium bodied with beautiful balance of fruit, tannin and acidity. Tastes of cherry and oak with a subtle vanilla aftertaste which lingers long on the tongue. This will appeal to serious and casual red wine drinkers alike. A bargain at the £12 I paid. I wouldn't pay the £17.50 avg vivino price tho. So smooth. So balanced. So drinkable.

Bodegas Palacios Remondo

The Palacios family boasts an impressive vinicultural tradition that goes back over the last four generations. However, it was José Palacios Remondo who was really responsible for making the winery what it is today, by planting the best possible selection of La Rioja’s traditional grape varieties, and treating viticulture as his true vocation. Showing great vision for the future, he sent his children (now in charge of the company) to be trained at the best French schools of...
