Ratings & Reviews

95+ Points - Robert Parker:
"The village wine 2016 Corullon (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 Corullon. There are 20,355 bottles and some larger (and smaller) formats. It was bottled in June 2018." - Luis Gutierrez (Feb 2019)

93-94 Points - James Suckling:

"So expressive on the nose with violets, hibiscus, cloves and cinnamon. A great combination of richness and freshness on the medium-bodied palate, the gentle tannins supporting the long finish beautifully. Barrel sample." (Aug 2018)
