Descendientes de José Palacios Corullón 2014

Tasting Notes

"95+ POINTS - Cropped from a cooler vintage and, therefore, with a cooler profile, the village red (vino de villa in the new classification from the 2017 vintage), the 2014 Corullón, felt like a more complete version of 2013, clearly a more Atlantic (cooler) year, with notes of violets, lilies and pomegranate, really expressive, open and aromatic, more focused, precise, clean and with a palate that follows that same line, plus the verticality and minerality added by the slate soils. Hands down, one of the best (if not the best) vintages of Corullón. Bravo!" - Wine Advocate, Luis Gutiérrez (Aug. 2017)

 

Alvaro Palacios and his nephew Ricardo Perez work together on the wines from Descendientes de J. Palacios, which is dedicated to Alvaro’s father, and Ricardo’s grandfather, who passed away in early 2000. The wines are a worthy tribute to the man who inspired them.

 

Grapes for this wine come from a variety of old-vine parcels throughout Corullón, on the western border of Bierzo. Their vineyards line the hillsides where the soils are quite diverse, and are composed of mostly schist.
