Las Lamas 2016
Las Lamas 2016 se presenta como un tinto denso y vivo, carnal y opulento. De espíritu orgánico y estimulante, sus uvas proceden de tres pequeñas parcelas, una de ellas de 100 años de antiguedad. La máxima expresión de la Mencía predispuesta para una lenta evolución. Cuenta con el fervor de la crítica más prestigiosa.

They hit the nail on the head with the harvest date of the 2016 Las Lamas, and the wine shows incredible precision, elegance and symmetry this year. I've often discussed with Ricardo Pérez Palacios how sensitive Mencía is with the harvest date and how the grape has a very short picking window, to the point that, in 2016, you feel one day difference. They have been fine-tuning this wine in the last few years, and the result is evident. 3,655 bottles and some larger bottles were filled in June 2018.
I love the fragrant cherry, dry earth and wild herb nose. Quite sleek, but impressive concentration, fine-grained tannins and lively acidity that are already beautifully married on the long filigree finish.
Gloriously floral with violets on the nose. A supple, silky entry; superbly fresh, almost crunchy with rosy plums. It drives through to a savoury, intense finish. Powerful. The partner vineyard to Moncerbal, at 800 metres; the clay in the soil builds the weight.
