2015 Bodega Dominio Do Bibei Ribeira Sacra Lalama 15
Robert Parker 93
The Lalama is a very elegant fresh wine with perfect acidity. It is a glass full of black fruits and spices with a nice, long finish. Has clear elements of a very beautiful burgundy but for a fraction of the price.
The Dominio do Bibei winery is located in Manzaneda, Ourense, and it founded in 2000 with the presentation of their first wine in 2002. This winery had underground facilities built to minimize their visual impact in the gorgeous region of Spain and this winery also used bioclimatic systems for their cooling processes. Furthermore, this winery utilizes the natural slopes of their land to utilize gravity powered vinification processes with the grape must and wine. This provides for unique density in some of their wines.
The artesian wines by the Dominio do Bibei winery are principally crafted from either Mencía or Godello grapes, and there are also single varietal Lacima (with some Brancellao) and Lapena grapes. The red wine, Lalama de Bodega Domino do Bibei is one of the most familous red wines of Galicia and it is crafted mainly from Mencía grapes with some Grenache, Brancellao, and Mouratón grapes in the coupage as well.
In its beginnings, this Galician winery was advised by Sara Pérez and René Barbier, both members of distinguished Priorat wine dynasties. Together, they own Venus La Universal, a winery based in Montsant. Besides, Sara Pérez is at the head of Mas Martinet, while René Barbier is in charge of the legendary Clos Mogador winery.
