La Faraona, Bierzo, León, 100 points Parker

In its prestigious and controversial list, Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) awarded in 2017 the highest possible score, 100 points, to La Faraona 2014, wine from Bierzo, produced by the winery "Descendientes de J. Palacios" in Corullón, to the front of which are Ricardo and his uncle Alvaro Palacios; who have also placed La Faraona 2015 with 99 points. These are also among the 10 best wines in the world in number 232 of the Wine Advocate Magazine. 




El Bierzo has come out very favored in the scores awarded by the guru Parker, through his man in Spain, Luis Gutierrez. Moncerbal 2014, also from the same winery has obtained no less than 98 points, and Corullón Las Lamas 2014 and Corullón 2014, both 95 points. Without forgetting a wine that has always been at the top, with a great value for money, Pétalos del Bierzo 2015, with 92 points. One can only congratulate the winery "Descendientes de J. Palacios", and especially its owners Ricardo and Álvaro Palacios for their magnificent work.
