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.  

Alcohol: 14.0%

Tasting notes Corullón

According to Ricardo J. Palacios, 2017 has been a year of extremes and surprises. Such extremes included low rainfall and summer drought with high temperatures resulting in an unusually early harvest. On the other extreme was a late frost on April 27 that destroyed crops in the Bierzo Valley, including part of the harvest set aside for the regional wine of Pétalos del Bierzo. Adding to this was a hailstorm that hit a few weeks later on May 9 that devastated the area of Moncerbal, destroying the harvest there. Ricardo has been pleasantly surprised at how such a dry vintage with extreme temperatures has translated into balanced, elegant wines with a refined quality he hasn’t seen in their wines.
The 2015 vintage was characterised by low rainfall. The lack of water throughout the year brought the vegetative cycle of the vine forward and it was not until days before the harvest that it started to rain considerably. This caused the grape to hydrate and lead to a somewhat fresher vintage than what it initially seemed. The continental character that this vintage looked like it was going to have was mitigated by the rain before the harvest, balancing the phenolic ripeness, qualifying the vintage as excellent. The wines of this vintage have an excellent balance between structure, acidity and texture in the mouth. A vintage that can age perfectly.
The 2014 vintage was characterised by a marked Atlantic climate. The rains and the cold in autumn prevailed, leading to a somewhat warmer than usual winter. Spring started mildly, with a two-week delay in budding and the rains were sporadic, with a total water accumulation of 1,000 mm that gives the vintage its Atlantic character. In July and August, temperatures rose and rainfall was scarce, leaving the grapes to ripen in an excellent way and giving the vintage a little more structure. At the end of August, they suffered high temperatures, and in September, the traditional rains made the harvest quite difficult. The wines of this vintage are characterised by their great complexity. A wine with an Atlantic and fresh character and a structure provided by the warmer end of cycle. Wines with a long life ahead.
The 2013 vintage was characterised by the influence of the Atlantic climate. Autumn and winter were the typical ones of El Bierzo, with abundant rainfall and low temperatures. Spring came in the same way, with some hail that destroyed crops in some places and lead to the delay in flowering. Summer did not make much of an appearance either, with low temperatures, ripening and the growth cycle were quite slow. The harvest date was delayed by 3 weeks.The wines of this vintage are characterised by a thin profile. The Atlantic climate left its mark on these lighter wines with a marked acidity. Ready to be stored.
Sight Clean and bright, dark cherry colour with violet reflections. Thin and beautiful tears. Nose Clean 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. Taste In 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.

    Production area D.O. Bierzo

    Winery Descendientes de J. Palacios

    Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.  Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.
