Descendientes De José Palacios Bierzo Corullon Moncerbal is a red wine from the Castilla y Leon region in Spain. Made by the Descendientes de Jose Palacios winery. An absolute top wine that can compete with the very best and most expensive Grandcru's from Burgundy and has repeatedly led to surprises at a blind tasting. Incredibly refined and a beautiful palette of scents and flavors.

The 20120 Moncerbal is a "vino de paraje", produced with grapes (mostly Mencía but also 4% white grapes) from several plots totaling 1.51 hectares in the same zone of the village of Corullón. It fermented with single 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 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 soft, with a great finish. It has varying aromas and flavors, mixing flowers, herbs, berries, earth and sometimes even a lactic acid note. It should develop further complexity in the bottle. This is a great vintage for Moncerbal, retaining the freshness and balance 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
