Descendientes de J. Palacios Corullón 2001
|Brand||Descendientes de J. Palacios|
Wine EnthusiastThis rather unique wine (made from MencÃƒÂa) is at the vanguard of the Bierzo revival. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s earthy and leafy, with aromas of red plums and natural spice. The mouthfeel is perfect, as itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just lush and firm enough. Nearly explodes in the mouth, with fine French oak softening the blow.
Wine SpectatorPlum and spicy flavors shine through this plump red, accented with earth and mineral notes. It has a lovely lightness on the palate, but with enough tannin for grip. Drink now through 2008.
