Review

Les Terrasses is the second wine from Álvaro Palacios. Set alongside the great wines, Ermita and Finca Dofí, Les Terrasses is produced under simpler guidelines, easy, relaxed and more diverse in nature, yet nevertheless it still has a great personality and a good balance of opulence and elegance.

Produced from grapes which the winery acquires from small vine-growers in the Priorat whom they themselves advise and manage, Les Terrasses spends a year in French oak barrels, 20% of which are new and the remaining 80% are in their second or third year, used in the production of earlier wines.

Matured for 12 months in French oak barrels, some new and others in their second or third year of use.

Priorat

Fruity (light) Priorat, 2nd wine of the domain, very subtle and pleasant.

Gran vino

Un gran vino de una denominación de origen poco comentada

El precio de la fama

Esperaba más de este vino. Es muy sencillo, simple incluso, afrutado, agradable, facilón, ausente de personalidad. Hay bastantes Priorat de precio inferior y mucho mejores: Martinet, Camins del Priorat... no os digo con precio similar.

Ti invita per un altro bicchiere

Anche se ancora giovane, diventerà sicuramente un gran vino. Fresco e beverino, e ben bilanciato in ogni suo aspetto. 15% di alcol che però non affaticano

2015 was great - looking forward to 2016

A fantastic wine with great depth of flavours. Crowd pleasing. Cherry and plum flavours with some herbal notes. So smooth and silky on the palette.

Álvaro Palacios

Álvaro Palacios

Álvaro Palacios came to the Priorat, to the town of Gratallops to be precise, following the lead of a group of local producers fully intending to pass on through their wines all the character of this land, full of its own brightness, with the shining Mediterranean sun, the gleaming slate in rocky crags, and brightly-coloured fennel in the olive groves. This is mystic, spiritual country tracing back its past to the Carthusian monks, who worked at cultivating vines for more th...
