Descendientes de José Palacios

Pétalos Bierzo Mencía 2019

What a terrific Mencía “New World” red. For wine geeks out there the Spanish wine project of Descendientes de J. Palacios is a must read. However, if you couldn’t care less about that side of the story (and that’s way OK) simply pull a cork on their “everyday wine” and enjoy. You’re in for a thrill. (A thirty-minute decant served at cellar temperature is the way to go.) — 18 days ago

What a unicorn. So did you know this was made by the great chef de caves ‘maudiere’ of @dom perignon and harveates from Monterey county grapes In 1983. It was only discourged and bottled recently. Only en magnum. Our buddy fred dame bought them all and presented one tonight. Alright, not ethereal, definitely a treat with a cool story.
Monterey baby!!!!! Thanks Fred and go GWC
