Description

Descendientes de J. Palacios Villa de Corullón is a seamlessly harmonious, highly nuanced and elegantly textured Bierzo red that is stunningly close in quality to the single-vineyard cuvées, as evidenced by its 96-point Gutiérrez rating for the 2019 vintage. With its lifted, pure nose of red and black berries, this is a beautifully fragrant wine which is fine and elegant. The aromas are like summer pudding in a glass.

Established by Álvaro Palacios, all the Descendientes de J. Palacios wines are 100% Mencia. Recently, Álvaro and Ricardo have built a new state of the art winery in amongst the vineyards of Corullón, better suited to making and storing the region’s best wines. Bierzo is home to the Mencía grape, often grown on very steep, precipitous slopes on pre-Cumbrian soils, some of the oldest soils in Europe. The region’s, and indeed Palacios’s, most famous vineyard ‘La Faraona’ is at the highest point of the hill of Corullón, at an altitude of almost 1000 meters and lies on a tectonic fault. This combination of altitude, old vines and complex geology creates an incredibly intricate, ethereal and spell-binding wine.
