Las Lamas Price € 90.00
Sensory features: Liquorous deep cherry and bramble rose nose with big soft red fruit-floral set, husky dark spice and pruny concentrated depth. Dense and savoury, the gently liquorous fruit works slowly through the mouth thanks to the typical solid tannin of Lamas, and which engenders a great sense of the earth all through the wine. Voluminous without heft.
Las Lamas is a red wine produced by Descendientes de J. Palacios in the D.O Bierzo in the village of Villafranca del Bierzo, León. The winery was founded by Álvaro Palacios and his nephew Ricardo back in 1999, who fell for and saw the potential in the region and the local Mencía grape variety.
Las Lamas comes from 3 plots, between 60 and 100 years, situated on the same estate. The vines grow on steep slopes and on slate soils, cultivated following the principles of Biodynamic agriculture.
The winemaking process is carried out in large wooden vats, without large extractions and treading the grapes with a press, allowing them to ferment with native yeasts. The wine is then decanted into French oak barrels, where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and is then aged.
Las Lamas is a wine that interprets the landscape from where it comes, a wine which finds the perfect balance between concentration and finesse, between the minerality, grape and ageing.
