The Wine
This white Rioja, its name quite simply and appropriately meaning  ‘pleasing’, is a fine testament to the expressive potential of the Viura variety, which Álvaro describes, perhaps a little extravagantly, as ‘the Chardonnay of the south’. Light straw colouring, then a nose of pear, white peach, jasmine and vanillin. The palate is fascinating, with fruit, butter, nuts and vanillin all evidenced. Richly textured and long. 


Bodegas Palacios Remondo is based in Alfaro in the Rioja Baja. This old family firm has been revitalised by the arrival of Alvaro Palacios who has already made his name, starting from scratch, with his extraordinary Priorato wines.

He has since returned to the family property in Rioja Baja, and in a very short space of time, has decreased production by 60% and increased quality by a far higher factor! The most Southerly of the Rioja vineyards, Baja centres on the rich silty soils of the River Ebro, its best vineyards, such as this, at quite considerable altitude (550 metres).

Placet is a beautifully refined, balanced, lightly perfumed white Rioja - made in oak but without the influence of new wood. The reds offer a range of options across different price ranges.
