Passion for Spanish wine



Villa de Corullón 2016 Tinto

Descendientes de J. Palacios, Bierzo

This is the outstanding village wine made by Álvaro Palacios and his nephew Ricardo Pérez in Bierzo. It used to be 100% Mencía but minority grape varieties such as white Palomino are now included in the blend creating a rounder palate. The wine is aged in oak vessels of different sizes including 600-litre barrels and oval foudres. 2016 is a particularly elegant vintage with aromas of fennel, spices, petals and fine fruits of the forest. The palate is aromatic with lovely texture and persistence. 17.0 points
