I recommend this wine without hesitation with stuffed tomatoes. This wine goes very well with tomatoes in general, whether preserved, dried or stuffed. A very fine appellation and the Milestone is up to the task.more reviews

"It's aromatic and complex, with very fine tannins." Robert Parker
Petalos, the cuvée from the prestigious winemaker Alvara Palacios, is the estate's quaffable wine: a real gem of impressive flavours. This cuvée is considered some of the best quality for the price from Spain. The only risk you take in buying this bottle is that you'll enjoy yourself and discover a high-end Spanish wine up close! A 100% Mencia, it can be savoured with pleasure right now as well as over the next six years. A great buy to honour your guests!

I was expecting more, given the critics' scores. I feel it over-wooded. It's good, but not charming. Maybe it needs more time in bottle to show more of its potential. But it's not receptive for me

A reconciliation with Spain! Delicious, red fruits, tannins and a long, slightly woody and earthy finish, very well integrated. Delicate but tasty, very good!

Once again, Spain shows off its good terroirs and its perfect sunshine. A round wine, an intense ruby red, red fruit, woody, no harshness, a very nice balance ... to discover thanks to Vinatis ... thank you.

Lots of fruit, very pleasant. But at this price - which is not excessive - I expected better. The whole lacks body. And I'm a little tired of all these wines that are so similar: a little singularity doesn't hurt...

A great value of the Bierzo appellation: almost Burgundian finesse, fruitiness, complexity and length. A wine for pleasure, simply to drink.

This appellation remains a great discovery for those who do not know it. A powerful wine with assertive tannins, although it lacks a little elegance.

I wasn't familiar with this wine, or with Galician wines in general, and it was a real pleasure. A supple, delicate wine, ideal with notes of ripe fruit. Excellent value for money

A definitely elegant wine, a mencia with enough extraction, good acidity and round tannins. Too bad it loses some grip on the finish.

A wonderful discovery, and at a great price. It's very rich in fruit and round. A well-balanced, velvety Spanish wine worth discovering. An enjoyable wine.

Bierzo is a very interesting Spanish appellation where you come across some very fine wines, particularly those from Palacios. Black fruit, spices, black pepper and a fine texture for this straightforward, juicy wine.

Due to the comments and being a great lover of Spanish terroir, I had high expectations of this wine. Although the tannins are quite fine, I was surprised by its lack of complexity and especially by its very short finish. At this price, I was expecting a lot more.

An explosion of ripe fruit. Juicy, fleshy and powerful, but also agile on the palate thanks to a providential acidity. Elegance may not be its strong point, but enjoyability certainly is!

DESCENDIENTES DE JOSE PALACIOS

Alvaro Palacios, true flagship of Priorat, is at the origin of the success of the region thanks to his dynamism and his wines of undeniable quality. After studying in France with Jean-Pierre Moueix at Château Pétrus, he returned to Spain to found his own estate. Today he is one of the pioneers of new Spanish wines. Recently, with the help of his nephew Ricardo Perez, he diversified into the region of Bierzo, a small vineyard in the north-west of Spain, where he produces, biodynamically, very beautiful, complex and balanced cuvées. In memory of his father, he named this third property Descendientes de J. Palacios.
