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".

Excellent - exceptional value

Deep cherry red with a very fruity nose - blackcurrants predominate but there is a little oak in the background. The first taste sensation is that the wine is very smooth and very fruity. Cherries and blackcurrants are especially strong. There is some sharpness in the background. The fruity flavours linger on the palate. Excellent with the lamb.

Un magnífico vino

Para mi es un magnífico vino con una excelente relación calidad precio y que nunca decepciona. Las bodegas Palacios son un referente y sinónimo de garantía y buen hacer.

Suave, delicado y sabor residual agradable

Es menos intenso que otros caldos de la zona pero con la comida apropiada queda bastante bien (carnes poco sazonadas)

Decepcionante un día después de abierto

La prueba definitiva de un vino es volver a saborearlo uno o dos días después de abierto. Sólo los buenos mejoran con una buena oxigenación. La Montesa uno o dos días después es muy decepcionante. Mala relación de calidad, a pesar de su buen precio aparente. No lo compraré más.

Sabor a cerezas con cierto toque de madera

Muy bueno, el precio calidad más que aceptable. Lo recomiendo dejándolo orear un poco, para cualquier alimento carne o pesacado

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...
