Descendientes de J. Palacios Corullón 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Corullón is the summation of 210 distinct, bio-dynamically farmed parcels of fruit. Pure Mencia, with red cherry, tree fruits (dark mulberry), wild spice and complex perfume - wild berries and flowers, pickled cherry, violet over fennel, smokey meat, forest floor and charcoal. Dark, livery meat palate is deep, silky and sumptuous, driven by fine, long fruit tannin.

The entry-level wine (what an entry!) is the 2007 Petalos del Bierzo, 100% Mancia from vineyards ranging in age from 40 to 90 years. It spends its first few weeks in new French barriques before transfer to seasoned oak for 6 to 10 months. Saturated purple in color, it offers up a super-fragrant bouquet of smoke, violets, mineral, wild blueberry, and black raspberry. Fruity yet complex on the palate, it has superb depth,grip, and balance. This sexy effort can be enjoyed over the next six years but only hedonists need apply. Descendientes de Jose Palaciosrsquo; first vintage was 1999. The men in charge are Richardo Perez and legendary vigneron Alvaro Palacios.

This is Descendientesrsquo; so-called starter Bierzo, but it rises above the tried and true value zone to exhibit mineral, crushed violet petals, graham cracker and pure dark-fruit aromas. The palate is smooth and plush, with lush black-fruit flavors, easygoing tannins and some creamy length. Itrsquo;s not as vivid as the 2005, but itrsquo;s still mighty impressive.

This balanced red offers bright cherry and cranberry fruit, with licorice and mineral accents. Not a big wine, but nervy and intense. Drink now through 2010.

The 2006 Petalos del Bierzo is purple-colored with a fragrant nose of violets, lavender, mulberry, and blueberry. Ripe, supple, and sweetly fruited, it will evolve for 2ndash;3 years and drink well through 2015.

This sinuous red delivers both intensity and elegance, with smoky oak notes floating around boysenberry, mineral and licorice flavors. The tannins are well-integrated and give way to a perfumed finish. Drink now through 2015.

This polished red shows density and harmony, delivering complex, well-integrated flavors of mineral, wild berry, fresh herbs and smoke. Not showy, but has character. Drink now through 2018.

Purpur Farbe. In der Nase intensive fruchtige und blumige Aromen. In der Nase mineralisch, mit viel Frucht, Würzigkeit, leicht rauchige Noten sowie blumig. Ein charaktervoller Wein mit einem fruchtig, frischen Finale.
