Descendientes de J. Palacios Corullón 2012
|Brand||Descendientes de J. Palacios|
Wine AdvocateAs 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. Some 18,000 bottle and some larger formats were produced.
Wine EnthusiastBold, floral aromas of rubbery red-berry fruits introduce a full, fresh, largely elegant palate that's home to minerally, medicinal cherry, plum and berry flavors. Wood grain and resiny notes are apparent on the finish, which is long, driving, spicy and oaky.
Wine SpectatorPlump yet polished, this red offers flavors of plum, espresso, mineral and fresh herbs, supported by gentle tannins and fresh acidity. Subtle, harmonious and graceful. Drink now through 2018. 30,000 cases made.
