Descendientes de J. Palacios Villa de Corullón 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

From 60 year-old vines, and farmed biodynamically, the latest triumph fromAlvaro Palacios, completing his triptych of Spanish vineyards ( the others, ofcourse, are in Rioja and Priorat). The intriguing Mencia grape is an earlyripener, but, with old vine pedigree, holds a wonderful depth of colour and isfar from reminiscent to Cabernet Franc, as was once alleged. A fascinating noseof herbs and spice gives way to fruits dominated by damson and dark cherries;the fascination is held on the palate with notes of tea, bitter chocolate,macerated fruit and even something a little chalky evidenced.
