Details
Ricardo Perez and his cousin Alvaro Palacios are making some of Spain's most delicious wines in the northeastern region of Bierzo. This is really beautiful and consistently one of our favorite wines we try every year. Elegant, fresh, with great fruit, lifted floral notes and a touch of peppery spice. Really long on the palate.

"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. This should be bottled around February 2019." 94-96 pts Luis Gutierrez The Wine Advocate
