Heiner Lobenberg über:
Petalos del Bierzo D.O. 2018


Lobenberg: Hauptsächlich Mencia, aber mit der Rarität Alicante Bouschet und weiteren autochthonen Rebsorten aus biodynamischem Anbau, Gemischter, uralter Satz. Spontanvergärung. Gewachsen auf Schiefer und Kalkstein. Klingt schon mal genial und spannend. Transparentes Rubinrot. Gewürze, reife Johannisbeere, satte rote Früchte und balsamische Noten, dann auch Tabak. Duftig blumig, Veilchen, Blaubeere und zart salzige Lakritze. Kompakt und frisch hält sich der fein gewobene Stoff zunächst im Hintergrund, dann kommt reife Kirsche, Schokolade und schwarze Johannisbeere. Alles bleibt aber fein und mit einer transparenten Leichtigkeit. Seidig und samtig, genialer Trinkfluss. Man erkennt diese tolle Mischung aus iberischer Reife und kühlem Kleinklima sehr gut und muss Ricardo Palacios schon für diesen frischen und aromatischen Wein ein großes Lob aussprechen. 93+/100


Parker über: Petalos del Bierzo D.O.

-- Parker: Their regional wine achieves unheard of levels of complexity and nuance with the 2018 Pétalos del Bierzo. It's a blend from over 90 hectares of vineyards in different part of Bierzo, 20% of the grapes from their own vineyards in Corullón, including some 4% white grapes. The rest is purchased from 180+ families with whom they have a long-term relationship. Some of these vineyards are not yet certified organic, but the objective is to achieve it in the next five years. It's mostly Mencía, but there are other grapes varieties in the vineyards; they estimate about 3% of other reds, Alicante Bouschet, Gran Negro, Pan y Carne, Negreda, etc. and around 4% whites, Valenciana, Jerez and Godello, half from Corullón and the other half from other villages. The grapes were partly destemmed and fermented in open-top stainless steel and oak vats with 25 days of maceration where the wine underwent a slow three-month malolactic. It matured in barrel for 12 months. This is the wine that showcases the house style and the character of the vintage, which, in this case, is delicate and very much from the zone. There is an aromatic purity and elegance that is very captivating with a faint flinty background, the cherry essence (Mediterranean) and a touch of fern (Atlantic) plus a honeyed twist that shows up after a couple of hours in the glass. It has a silky texture, soft and caressing, with very fine tannins and the faint bitter twist in the finish. In an ideal world, this should be the first wine people drink from Bierzo, and fortunately, in many cases, it is, given the availability, even if they did a more severe selection. This is approachable now but would be better in one year, and it's going to live in bottle. 282,038 bottles and 2,500 magnums produced. It was bottled between December 2019 and January 2020. 93+/100


Suckling über: Petalos del Bierzo D.O.

-- Suckling: Pretty nose of ripe cherries, strawberries, bitter chocolate, caramelized hazelnuts, lavender, peppercorns and sweet spices. Medium-bodied with sleek tannins and fresh acidity. Juicy and flavorful finish. Drink or hold. 93/100


Penin über: Petalos del Bierzo D.O.

-- Penin: Leuchtendes Kirschrot. Aromen: balsamisch, süße Gewürze, Buschwaldkräuter, dunkle Früchte. Am Gaumen: würzig, balsamisch, schöne Säure. 92/100


Galloni über: Petalos del Bierzo D.O.

-- Galloni: Dark, bright-rimmed ruby. Spice- and mineral-accented dark berry and floral scents show fine clarity and a complementary hint of candied licorice. Sappy and focused on the palate, offering gently sweet boysenberry, bitter cherry and violet pastille flavors and a spicy touch of white pepper. The mineral quality repeats on a very long, penetrating finish that leaves sweet blue fruit and spicecake notes behind. 92/100

Alvaro Palacios, die Legende aus dem Priorat, der Selfmade-Superstar. Und Bierzo, eine der nördlichsten Weinbauregionen Spaniens, der ein sagenhafter Ruf ob der atemberaubenden Landschaft und des riesigen Potenzials großer Rotweine vorausging. Jetzt in diesem Projekt vereint. Aber im Grunde wurde...
