The wine

Bring together old Rioja vines and the magic hands of Álvaro Palacios (L'Ermita, Finca Dofí, Corullón, La Faraona...) and the result is a truly extraordinary wine. The Palacios Remondo winery is run by Álvaro, whose family have worked in the world of wine for four generations. He knows the winery's old vine plants in Alfaro, ranging between 30 and 90 years old, like the back of his hand and uses them to create this wonderful Grenache wine. Organic agriculture methods are used in the vineyards, ensuring top quality grapes which are carefully harvested at the peak of ripeness in the early morning to guarantee the freshness of the fruit. The grape must is fermented with wild yeasts and left to age for 18 months in large wooden foudres or vats to respect the essence of the fruit, rounding off the wine and giving it a balanced complexity.

A precise, deep wine with a bright cherry-red colour, it delights the palate with juicy fruit and earthy tones. Palacios-Remondo Propiedad exhibits extremely fine tannins and fragrances of Mediterranean herbs, red fruit and cocoa. Subtle, delicious and with an elegantly classic transparency, Propiedad blends power and style in a sublime way. A fine mouth, sensual and delicate, gives little clue as to its magnificent laying-down potential. Aromas of rose petals, spices, orange peel and cherries appear after a few minutes in the glass — all the freshness of vineyards located at an altitude of 550 metres and the elegance of pebble-covered chalky soils.

Propiedad is a splendid wine, clear proof of the potential behind the combination of Grenache grapes and the Rioja Oriental region. The smooth Mediterranean influence and northern breezes the vines enjoy are the perfect formula for Alvaro Palacios to be able to create a wonderfully unique Grenache red wine.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The 2019 Propiedad was produced with grapes (mostly Garnacha but also some 8% other traditional varieties) from organically farmed vineyards in the lieu-dits (parajes) Las Mulgas, Valfrío, Valviejo and Corral de Serrano in Alfaro. It fermented in 15,000-liter oak vats with indigenous yeasts, and the wine matured in 5,000-liter oak vats and some 2,000-liter foudres in a more traditional way, not in the barrique that arrived in Rioja from Bordeaux, for 18 months. The vineyard in Las Mulgas is the one that dominates this blend with the depth and clout of the old vines. This is like a village vieilles vignes from Alfaro, just phenomenal, expressive and elegant with a powerful yet fresh mouthfeel with very fine tannins and the rich flavors from the ripe Garnacha in the finish. It should develop nicely in bottle. 22,500 bottles and 100 magnums were produced. It was bottled in May 2021. There was no 2018 of this wine, as they don't bottle it when they don't feel it has the required quality. It's curious, it seems like they only bottle it in warmer vintages, as they skipped 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2018, and there won't be a 2020 either...

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...
