2012 Descendientes de Jose Palacios "Villa de Corullon" Bierzo

SKU #1351320 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 As they are growing in vineyards in Moncerbal, the Corullón bottling has more and more Moncerbal, with its base from San Martín, a little from Fontelas and El Ferro. The 2012 Corullón is very fresh and aromatic, with citric aromas, very subtle, like an amplified version of Pétalos, more fragrant and fresh than Moncerbal, really open and accessible, changing by the minute, with faint notes of underbrush and captivating hints of bitter almonds and fennel. The palate is medium-bodied, very accessible, silky, with velvety tannins and good acidity. This is approachable now, but with it's balance, freshness and weight, it should age effortlessly and with class. I'm also tempted to say that this is the best Corullón to date. (LG)  (1/2015)

 Dark berry, cloves and other spices show on the nose and palate. Full body, chewy tannins and a long and powerful finish. A solid, structured red with freshness. Drink or hold.  (7/2015)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Saturated ruby. Musky smoke- and mineral-accented aromas of dark berries, cherry pit and cola. Spicy and taut on entry, then fleshier and sweeter in the middle, offering spicy blackberry and cherry-cola flavors and a jolt of racy acidity on the back half. Puts on weight with air while maintaining very good vivacity and focus. Finishes bright and very long, with excellent clarity, silky tannins and lingering spiciness. (JR)  (9/2014)
