Alvaro Palacios, Moncerbal, Bierzo, Spain 2015

En primeur sample

Alvaro Palacios Moncerbal 2015 is showing beautifully. Heady aromas of red roses and plums lead to a generously plump and fleshy palate.  Dense and powerful at the outset, followed by a delicate grain of tannin.  Very lively, very long.  Of all the Bierzos, at its best today.
