Red - VILLA DE CORULLON, J Palacios. Bierzo, Spain (Magnum)

2013 VILLA DE CORULLON, J Palacios. Bierzo, Spain (Magnum)

Bin: 875
Alcohol Percentage: 14%
Area: Bierzo in north west Spain has only been a 'DenominaciĆ³n de Origen' since 1989. The appreciation of the local Mencia grape is still only growing slowly. It deserves it - the wines can have a freshness and elegance rarely seen in the more classic Spanish styles. The region has a lot of old vines, on dramatically steep hillsides.
This comes from around the small
Grape Variety: From 60+ year old Mencia vines
Producer: Descendientes de J. Palacios was established in 1998 by Alvaro Palacios (who also has great estates in Rioja and Priorat) and his nephew Ricardo Perez.
Press Reviews: Decanter Magazine - Sarah Jane Evans MW:
"The Palacios wines introduce Bierzo to many; quality keeps on growing. Corullon, smart little brother to the top wines, has a truffle and fresh, dark plum palate. Long crisp finish, a rasp of tannins and latent minerality."
