2019 Descendientes Jose Palacios Moncerbal
Descendientes De José Palacios Bierzo Corullon Moncerbal is a red wine from the region Castilla y Leon in Spain. Made by the winery Descendientes de Jose Palacios. An absolute top wine and can compete with the very best and most expensive Grandcrus from Burgundy and has repeatedly led to surprises on a blind tasting. Incredibly refined and a beautiful pallet of scents and flavors.
The Moncerbal 2019 is a "vino de paraje", produced with grapes (mostly Mencía but also 4% white grapes) from different plots totaling 1.51 hectares in the same zone of the village of Corullón. It fermented with some full bunches and native yeasts in oak barrels for 46 days and matured for 11 months in oak barrels and foudres. It is one of the low-alcohol wines (along with the Corullón) with 13.5% alcohol. This is super aromatic and floral, with notes of violets and also white flowers and even a hint of citrus. This is the top wine of the 2019s - structured, long and smooth, with a great finish. It has varying aromas and flavours, mixing flowers, spices, berries, earth and sometimes even a lactic acidity. It should develop further complexity in the bottle. This is a great vintage for Moncerbal, keeping the freshness and poise of 2018 in a warmer year. They use less and less new oak barrels. In 2019, 3,488 bottles, 101 magnums and some larger sizes were produced. Serve this in a large Burgundy glass
