WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - "Curiously the 2010 Corullon at this stage of development shows the effect of the wood-aging more than the younger 2011. Right Read More...
now it is a lot more restrained than the 2011. You have to deep-dive into the glass to understand the wine. The fruit is more acidic strawberry, denoting freshness. It is linear rather than round, acute rather than low with superb balance and delineation, fine acidity and very good length. You really have to pull out the wine, as the palate follows the same pattern as the nose, which is not always the case. With wonderful acidity, it is a wine for the long haul. Drink 2015-2025."

During the late 1980’s, Alvaro Palacios travelled his native Spain selling French barriques to winemakers. But his journeys had a second purpose: to find the best place to achieve his goal of making Spain's greatest wine. He ultimately decided, in 1990, on Priorato, where he would achieve worldwide fame with "L'Ermita" and "Finca Dofi." But there had been a close contender: Bierzo. It had all the ingredients that Alvaro wanted—incredibly steep hillside vineyards, distinctive terroirs and, most importantly, ancient vineyards of Mencía—a unique red grape believed brought by French pilgrims during the Middle Ages.

WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "One of my sure values, I thought the 2012 Pétalos could not be surpassed so I opened a bottle next to the 2012 Pétalos Read More...
del Bierzo, and I was wrong. The 2012 is extremely aromatic, with flowery aromas of violets, lilies and roses, really fresh, with notes of red fruit (acid strawberries), no traces of oak whatsoever, subtle, really Burgundian with hints of blood oranges, denoting freshness. The medium-bodied palate is extremely balanced, elegant, round, with volume and incredible freshness. For a young, entry-level wine there is incredible complexity, developing notes of fennel and aromatic herbs, all of it very harmonious and subtle. For Ricardo there is a change to a cycle of Atlantic vintages (2012, 2013 and 2014 so far), but 2012 was a special vintage, shorter and dried, but at the same time fresh. This could very well be the best Pétalos ever, and I cannot recommend enough. 310,000 bottles of this prodigious wine were produced, showing you can do quantity and quality at the same time. Bravo!"

Old vineyards lined the precipitous hillsides there, and the local soils were extremely poor-composed mostly of schist-but with incredible diversity. The minute variations in soils and exposures across this zone immediately reminded the two of Burgundy's Côte d'Or, or Piedmont's Langhe hills.
