Characteristics of Corullón
Corullón is a red wine produced by the Descendientes de J. Palacios in the D.O Bierzo in the village of Villafranca del Bierzo, León. The winery was founded by Álvaro Palacios and his nephew Ricardo back in 1999, who saw the potential of the region, as well as the local Mencía grape variety.
Corullón is the ´vino de pueblo´ of the winery, made exclusively with the Mencía grape variety planted on slate soils and slopes on land surrounding the village. The vineyards are cultivated organically, with no pesticides or herbicides being used.
The vinification process is carried out in wooden vats with a spontaneous fermentation, followed by malolactic fermentation and then ageing in French oak barrels.
Corullón is a magnificent red wine that year after year manages to capture and express the feeling of each vintage, of the vines and of the village.

SightClean and bright, dark cherry colour with violet reflections. Thin and beautiful tears.NoseClean and complex high-intensity nasal aromas that take time to open up. After swirling the glass, its notes of fleshy and ripe red fruits are released along with floral hints of violets and lavender, toasted notes and spicy, mineral and balsamic nuances. Very pleasant and deep aromatic set.TasteIn the mouth, we find a fresh and very tasty wine with a very fruity mid palate which leaves some mellow floral notes behind. Very good, sharp and integrated acidity, noticeable but pleasant tannins, good structure and fluid texture. Very lively red wine. Long and very persistent finish.
In recent years, winemakers and developers have settled in the DO Bierzo with very plausible innovative ideas, investing heavily in local wineries, resulting in the production of personal and unique wines. There is no doubt that El Bierzo has become a trendy and cool D.O, aided by the spicy, delicate and velvety Mencia grape, whose character and great capacity of expression of terroir is undoubtedly the regions best asset. Even many compare it to the Pinot Noir, which together with the small scale style of production and topography of its vineyards, the traditional form of the Burgundian bottle used, and the original use of the names of towns and places in their best wines, resulted in this wine region being given the nickname of "little Spanish burgundy".
To talk of Descendientes de J. Palacios is to talk about Ricardo Perez and his uncle Álvaro Palacios, both passionate about simplifying the treatment of the vineyards and the wine production process, leading them to become pioneers of Biodynamic viticulture. The winery currently boasts 30 hectares of vineyards spread over 200 different plots, home to old vines and steep soils, which combines the organic with the immaterial in the constant search for the definition and purity of their wines.
