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 Moncerbal 2021 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. The ultra elegant, sleek and mineral Moncerbal 2021 has amazing freshness, ultra refined tannins and lots of complexity, with layers and layers of flavors and aromas and great depth. There is a sense of harmony here that is captivating: this is pure elegance. It is floral, perfumed and velvety with very fine, chalky tannins and a juicy finish. In December 2022, 4,463 bottles, 107 magnums and some larger sizes, were filled, after which they were bottle-aged for almost 9 months.
