Villa de Corullón 2015
Villa de Corullón es un vino extrovertido que armoniza alturas, aromas y luces dispares. Delicado, envolvente y elegante, adquiere ahora todo su potencial tras varios años después de su elaboración. Corullón es una poesía en forma de vino que se extiende por las cuestas empinadas del Bierzo, un paisaje mediterráneo y atlántico que aporta sedosidad, frescura y mineralidad al vino.

Opinión de los críticos
Ricardo Pérez Palacios told me his favorite overall vintages for Bierzo are 2001, 2012 and possibly 2015, because he sees them as very complete years, even if 2015 didn't have as perfect conditions as 2001 and 2012; the 2015 Corullón is a perfect example of that, a really pretty wine, open, where I see the similarities with 2012. They use many of the vineyards year after year, all of them around the village of Corullón, all planted with a field blend of varieties, and they have been increasing the percentage of white grapes from those vines that they include in the cuvée. In 2015, it can be almost 9%, mostly Palomino, and they feel it polishes that slight bitterness in the finish of the Mencía, reminiscent of green almonds. Of course, there are also other red grapes, like Alicante Bouschet, Gran Negro, Pan y Carne and Negreda, that might contribute to some 2% of the volume. 19,572 bottles, 720 half bottles, 450 magnums, 45 double magnums and 30 Jeroboams were filled between May 11th and 17th of 2017.
Love the focus and balance to this wine. Clove, nutmeg and mineral character with blue fruits, too. Medium to full body and ultra-fine grained tannins. Lovely length. Drink now.Biodynamically-grown grapes.
