DESCENDIENTES DE JOSE PALACIOS 10 MONCERBAL

WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - The 2007 Corullon Moncerbal was aged in 100% new French oak. It is dark ruby-colored with an already complex aromatic array of pain grille, pencil lead, Asian spices, incense, and assorted black fruits. Velvety-textured, suave, and intensely flavored, it admirably combines elegance and power. The finish lasts for 40-seconds. Give it 3-4 years of additional cellaring and drink it from 2013 to 2022.During the late 1980's Alvaro Palacios travelled his native Spain selling French barriques to winemakers. But his journeyshad a second purpose: to find the best place to achieve his goal of making Spain's greatest wine. He ultimately decided, in1990, on Priorato, where he would achieve worldwide fame with L'Ermita and Finca Dofi. But there had been a closecontender: Bierzo. It had all the ingredients that Alvaro wanted —incredibly steep hillside vineyards, distinctive terroirs and, mostimportantly, ancient vineyards of Mencía— a unique red grape believed brought by French pilgrims during the Middle Ages.
