Plácet Valtomelloso Blanco 2016
Plácet reivindica el saber y la tradición del blanco riojano. Su dinamismo, su volátil madurez, su clase. Quizá también su misterio y seguro, su aire de frutas y flores blancas. Es, en suma, un espejo íntimo de las tierras altas de la Rioja oriental que en su añada 2016 ha recibido 94 puntos Parker.

I also tasted the 2016 Plácet Valtomelloso, which was sourced from the same vineyard and produced in the same way as the 2015, with fermentation and 11 months spent in 2,000-liter oval oak foudres. 2016 produced a little less white wine. The nose is very expressive, very young, high pitched and with almost unnoticeable oak, quite harmonious. The palate is clean, defined, straight and pure, with symmetry, tension and a very tasty, salty finish. This is very fine and elegant but with good weight too. One of the best vintages of Plácet. 10,800 bottles were filled in October 2017. In this vintage they changed to a Burgundy bottle, and in 2017 it will wear the European Organic agriculture label.
A more linear and long white from Rioja with tropical fruit and density. Vertical. Medium to full body. Fresh and vivid. Energetic finish. Drink now.
