PRODUCER: A man of his time, an essential figure in the political and social life of Bilbao at the end of the 19th century, in 1894 Cosme Palacio Bermejillo took over the reins of the family winery that his father founded in Laguardia in 1863 to turn it into the most advanced winery in the Rioja Alavesa. With his characteristic vision of the future and with his sights set on the main wine reference, Bordeaux, he introduced fundamental changes that laid the foundations for modern DO Ca. Rioja wine.
At the end of the 1980s, Cosme Palacio marked a before and after in the history of the wines of this land, creating a style of winemaking at the forefront of its time. Today, Cosme Palacio enjoys great international recognition for being considered the bridge between the Classic Rioja style and the Modern Rioja.
WINEMAKING: Cosme Palacio Reserva is born from the selection of clusters in selected vineyards over 70 years old, located at more than 600 meters of altitude, settled on clay-calcareous soils at the foot of the Sierra de Cantabria in Rioja Alavesa. A minimum of 18 months of aging in new French oak barrels. A minimum of 28 months in the bottle.
TASTING NOTE: Great fruit intensity with aromas of blackberry, currant, blueberries and details of the sloe. Due to its upbringing we find a roasted finish that creates an elegant and subtle set. Enveloping and fleshy, powerful but at the same time friendly and delicate with very fine, ripe and elegant tannins, good and balanced acidity that gives it a detail of liveliness and freshness. Silky and very long finish.
