Ribeira Sacra, Lalama, Dominio do Bibei - 2018

The Ribeira Sacra is a steep-sided, terraced vineyard with some extraordinary wines, made all the more memorable by the fact that they are sublimated by great estates. Cuvée Lalama is the pinnacle of the great Hispanic terroir reds, with its peppery and floral (violet) accents; it is a sapid, deep wine with a smooth texture. A benchmark. Guia Penin : 94/100

The area of the estate is about 30 ha, with a production of about 100,000 bottles per year. The vines are grown at altitudes ranging from 350 to 920 metres, scattered over a large north-facing hillside, with schist and granite soils. Some of the grapes come from neighbouring vineyards, provided they do not face south. Freshness and acidity levels are an obsession here. The climate is Atlantic, with strong contrasts between seasons. Mencia accounts for up to 80% of the vineyard, but brancellao, which was the dominant red variety in the past, plays an important role compared to other red varieties such as mouratón, sousón, caíño and alicante bouchet. As for the white varieties, godello is in the lead, followed by albariño and dona branca. All the grapes are destemmed and the wine is matured in different containers such as oak barrels and half-oak barrels, as well as tuns and cement eggs. The estate is now a cult and revered by wine lovers around the world. It is a reference...
