« The purple-colored 2006 Villa de Corullon offers up a super-fragrant bouquet of lavender, incense, black cherry, and black raspberry. Elegant and multi-dimensional on the palate, it has gobs of ripe fruit, succulent flavors, and impeccable balance. It has several years of aging potential and should offer prime drinking from 2012 to 2021. »

« Alvaro Palacios may be the betterknown name behind the Descendientes de J. Palacios label in Bierzo, but equally if not more responsible for Villa de Corullon and several other superb Mencia-based wines is his nephew. Ricardo Perez Palacios, who oversees the duo’s vineyards in the area and also runs the winery in Villafranca de Bierzo. Formed as a joint venture in 1998, Descendientes, which honors Alvaro’s late father (Ricardo’s grandfather), has led the decade-long resurgence that has transpired in Bierzo, a small but high-potential D.O. located in northwest spain. And the heart of Bierzo is the town of Corullon, which is surrounded by precipitous hillside vineyards planted to mencia. Villa de Corullon, the most ethernal and balanced wine being made in Bierzo ; is a blend of 200 parcels totaling about 75 acres. The Palacios teams uses only old-vine fruit for this wine, which is unique in flavor, mouthfeel and balance. More food-friendly than just any othe spanish wine, the’06 features bright fruit, fine acidity, elegance, floral aromas and flavors, and subtleties that may sometimes be lacking in Tempranillo and most other Spanish red grapes. »
