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.

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.

What does this wine taste like?

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.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The Propiedad bottling is not produced every year, and the 2021 Propiedad, mostly Garnacha (with 10% other grapes) from old organically farmed and head-pruned vines in the parajes of Las Mulgas, Cabecilla de la Ra and Valmira, fermented in oak vats with indigenous yeasts. It has the signature of this cuvée in a cooler year: elegant and fresh but not lacking power or concentration. It has a velvety, precise and seamless palate, with great freshness and balance, red berry and crushed stone flavors and a citrus twist of freshness. There is a lot more depth and complexity compared with the already exceptional La Montesa. It’s fine-boned and elegant, with very fine tannins and a precise and clean finish. It's also powerful and ripe at 14.5% alcohol, keeping a pH of 3.5 and 5.3 grams of acidity. 46,400 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2023 after it spent 10 months in oak vats and barrels of different sizes.

The winery

Bodegas Palacios Remondo

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...
