The village wine 2018 Corullón has, for the first time, the new category Vino de Villa. It comes from around 90 plots of their own vineyards. The wine fermented in oak vats with punching down, and the élevage was in a combination of barriques, bocoyes and foudres, oak containers of different sizes, and was short of 11 months. There is terrific balance here, great purity, with the essence of slate; here, we move from the fruit of the Pétalos to the herbs. But there is complexity and nuance, violets, rockrose, sap, resin, fern, cinnamon, and citrus, all very subtle and harmonious. The flavours have similar purity, and if these wines never have high acidity, there is great freshness, soft citrus, all very subtle and velvety.
The 2017 Corullón showed a wider side of this village blend, where they have been focusing to get more precision through harvesting every plot the exact day it should be bottled. That's why they sold up to seven hectares of vineyards, the most challenging plots, those at higher altitude and with more challenging ripening conditions, enabling them to achieve an even more precise blend with the remaining grapes. Its cherry red dress reveals beautiful aromatic notes, which take time to unveil. Red fruits, floral, spicy, mineral, and balsamic aromas sublimate a fresh and particularly tasty mouth. The oak foudre that seems to amplify the spicy side of the wine, with an herbal twist thrown in. The palate showed much better, with great balance and very fine tannins.
