Descendientes de J. Palacios Petalos Mencia
'Petalos' is D.J.P.'s regional introduction wine to the Mencias of Bierzo. Largely from Corullon fruit (including declassified material from the single vineyard sites), but includes some material from sites managed, rather than owned by Alvaro and Ricardo. Absolutely gorgeous, plush, elegant and floral – trademark roses and pepper tree perfume, bright and earthy at once, red fruits hybridised with the juice of rose petals, peppercorn and roast meat juice. It’s very savoury, elegant, satiny but dry, long and supple with sour cherries and dried sage.
