Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The village wine 2016 Corullón (which might carry the new category 'Vino de Villa' for the 2017 vintage if it's approved by the EU soon enough) was hitting on all cylinders when I tasted it. It had a very clean nose, elegant, insinuating, ethereal, perfumed and subtle, without a trace of excess in any direction. It took time to unfurl its notes of violets, wild herbs and spices. The palate had terrific balance, very refined tannins and subtle, integrated acidity with subdued minerality and a long, dry and almost salty finish. This has to be among the best years for Corullón. There are 20,355 bottles and some larger (and smaller) formats. It was bottled in June 2018.
Between 14ºC and 16ºC
Aged for 14 months in French oak barrels.
