This rather unique wine (made from Mencía) is at the vanguard of the Bierzo revival. It’s earthy and leafy, with aromas of red plums and natural spice. The mouthfeel is perfect, as it’s just lush and firm enough. Nearly explodes in the mouth, with fine French oak softening the blow.

Plum 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.

The 2001 Corullon exhibits a deep ruby/purple-tinged color as well as a subtle, restrained, intellectually satisfying bouquet of crushed stones, white flowers, and blue as well as black fruits. Tightly-knit, with crisp acidity, hints of licorice and blueberries, medium body, and a crisp, vigorous yet refreshing finish, it appears to require another 2-3 years of cellaring, but since I have no experience with the varietal or the aging potential of these wines, it is better to be conservative and consume it over the next 7-8 years.
