2010 Descendientes de J. Palacios, Bierzo, Villa de Corullón (RT94) Deep, dark ruby with hints of garnet at the rim, the 2010 Corullón is showing consistent with previous bottles. This is a fine 100% Mencía bottling from a rock solid, benchmark vintage with fruit sourced from a blend of “grand cru” vineyards in the hills above the village of Corullón. Dark blackberry, plum and anise lead to notes of herbs and wet stones. The palate is rich with beautifully ripe fruit and layered with deeply acidified notes and soft, ripe tannins. At age 12 this is in its peak drinking window, and should continue to show well for another decade. A gorgeous Mencía! Drink now-2030+
