2010 Dominio do Bibei "Lalama" Ribeira Sacra

SKU #1155011

Dominio do Bibei is a project based in the Bibei valley in Ribeira Sacra, Northwest Spain. The vines are located on terraced clay and slate vineyards, biodynamically farmed, and the wine vinified in concrete eggs and variously shaped used oak barrels. Since the primary grape, Mencia (tiny quantities of Mouraton and Garnacha Tintorera are blended in), tends naturally towards reduction, this style of winemaking seems to make perfect sense to create balanced, elegant wines. The winery believes that new barrels do not do their wines any favors - a refreshing change of pace from how many view oak aging. Organically cultivated fruit on beautiful vineyards, biodynamic practices, thoughtful winemaking...this is a wine worth trying! (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)

A wine of lovely supple texture and exquisite purity. Very Pinot Noir like in weight with fresh crunchy forest fruits and leaf litter. Bright acidity and fine tannins elongate the wine beautifully on the palate. This wine has nice textural layers that unfold gracefully with some savory lees influenced nuances and lovely balance. A wine that really shows the potential of Ribeira Sacra to make world class wines.
