The 2019 Pétalos, a very balanced vintage that shows moderate alcohol and great balance. It is very approachable right now, open aromatically, and despite what the parameters might read, the wine comes through as fresher than the 2020. There are notes of berries but also plenty of herbs; it's aromatic and complex, with very fine tannins. It's a classical continental vintage from Bierzo.
2017 was a very unusual year in Bierzo, and here they started harvesting the 21st of August, when they had never started harvesting in August. However, the bottled wine, the first produced at their new facilities, was really singing and didn't show any fatigue. The palate was vibrant, with acid strawberry flavours. It is very immediate, approachable, round, and juicy, perhaps not with the depth and longevity of the 2014 but pleasant and drinkable.
The Petalos cuvée signed by the prestigious winemaker, Alvaro Palacios is the pleasure cuvée of the estate: A real nugget with impressive taste flavours. It's a showy, approachable, aromatic, and open version of Pétalos, and as I tasted it later on in the season, it felt more polished and rounder, with a lush texture. It's extremely aromatic, in a way like the 2012. This is always one of the best values not only of Bierzo but for the whole of Spain.
