Product Description

"The 'village' wine - Corullón being the village in Bierzo where these wonderful hillside bush-vines occur at their finest. Corullón is the summation of 210 distinct, bio-dynamically farmed parcels of fruit.
Balsamic herbs and violets ring out over red-blue fruits. The wine is elegant, definitively Atlantic with great length. The cold sensations are relieved by sweet spices and deep earthiness. There is a clear sense of cold in the damp mountain soil aromas, from which rise a 'spring-like' awakening, with blossom smells, mint and verbena and an electric mineral tingle emerging. Tannins are beautiful and run the show in the mouth, full and deep, softly, earthily coating, then coaxing, engendering a slow, low outward release promising a long developmental future." Importer's Note

The sample of the 2017 Corullón showed a wider side of this village blend, where they have been focusing to get more precision through harvesting every plot the exact day it should be bottled. That's why they sold up to seven hectares of vineyards, the most challenging plots, those at higher altitude and with more challenging ripening conditions, enabling them to achieve an even more precise blend with the remaining grapes. I had a sample from one oak foudre that seemed to amplify the spicy side of the wine, with an herbal twist thrown in. The palate showed much better, with great balance and very fine tannins. 96 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

So expressive on the nose with violets, hibiscus, cloves and cinnamon. A great combination of richness and freshness on the medium-bodied palate, the gentle tannins supporting the long finish beautifully. 94 Points James Suckling
