Descendientes de J Palacios Moncerbal [En Primeur – Due October 2022] 2020

14.5% abv

Vol- 75cl

2020 Moncerbal has an overriding scent of just-rained-on stone, alongside pure, focused redcurrant fruit, all framed by red cherries. The wine has a gloriously floral bouquet of lilac, rose petals and lavender, topped off by a musky note of sandalwood.
The palate has so much energy! Yet it is deceptively glossy and smooth with ultra-fine tannins that feel like velvet brushed against the nap. There’s an earthy finish to this though, with hints of clay and just the lightest touch of fresh, market-garden beetroot. This is a linear wine: straight up with indescribably pure minerality which leaves the palate feeling refreshed and quenched. The tannins are chalky and leave a fine sensation in the mouth with the quartz-like finish. Drink 2025-2036.

Álvaro Palacios and his nephew Ricardo came to Bierzo in 1999. Their arrival brought much deserved attention to this old wine region and resulted in its revival.

The sum of the Bierzo landscapes, their vegetation and diverse soils are condensed and asserted in Pétalos, a young, fragrant wine which is able to express all the hues and shades of the region. The fruit for Villa de Corullon comes exclusively from the hill of Corullon and includes exquisite vineyards of Fontelas and San Martin. Las Lamas is a single vineyard wine made from 120 year old vines that typically shows masculine power whilst Moncerbal is more feminine and scented, reflecting the silica and quartzite terroirs of this steep vineyard. La Faraona is the queen of them all, reigning at 900 m altitude and showing exquisite perfume, seductive minerality and a graceful, elegant backbone. This is a wine to keep and to treasure.
