Palacios Corullon Bierzo paired in Food & Wine
December 2006 issue of Food & Wine features Spanish chef Jose Andres's Christmas menu (p.177). Perfectly paired with his Pork Roast with Sausages, Fruit & Nut stuffing is the 2003 Descendientes de J. Palacios Corullon Bierzo. Here is what they say about the wine: "Wines from Bierzo in northwestern Spain are suddenly hot. Those produced from the local Mencia grape are full of bright red fruit, with a firm acidity and great minerality that make them very food-friendly…the 2003 Descendientes de J. Palacios Corullon Bierzo…has a subtle touch of oak that rounds out the fruit and adds structure - perfect for this sausage-stuffed pork". This wine is on order to arrive soon. Limited quanities, please inquire.
