2015 Dominio do Bibei "Lacima" Ribeira Sacra Tinto (Previously $55)

SKU #1482815 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Lacima is really impressive. It's a serious, balsamic and reticent red with a faithful expression of rocks through its blend of 70% Mencía with 20% Brancellao and 5% each Mouratón and Sousón. The grapes were very healthy, and the crop was quite small and concentrated. It fermented with natural yeasts in open-top 500-liter French oak vats and had a long élevage of 17 months in used barriques followed by no less than 14 months in bottle before it was released. It combines power with elegance, and it has concentration and nuance and feels quite young and lively. It's tasty, clean and long, and it seems to have good balance and all that is needed for a long and positive development in bottle. This has to be one of the finest vintages of Lacima so far. 3,786 bottles were filled in October 2017. (LG) Inner quote mark (2/2019)

K&L Notes

Dominio do Bibei is a project based in the Bibei valley in Ribeira Sacra, Northwest Spain. The biodynamically farmed vines are located on terraced clay and slate soils, with some granitic parcels as well, and the wine is vinified in concrete eggs and variously shaped used oak barrels. 75% Mencía, 20% Brancellao, 3% Mouratón and 2% Sousón from older vines (60 to 110 years). Destemmed. Fermented in open-top 500L oak casks with punching down. Moved by gravity to used barriques for malo and aging for about 17 months with a further 5 months in tronconic vats. 15 further months’ aging in bottle before release.
