2016 "Las Lamas" DO, Descendientes de J Palacios
The soil of Las Lamas vineyard stands out for a higher preesence of clay among schist which translates into a distinctive exhuberant character. This is Mencía at its best with plenty of round, crunchy red fruits over and exotic background of stone fruit and white florwers. Oustanding mouthwatering, vivid, expressive palate with loyd of juiciness and persitence.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"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 PÃ©rez Palacios how sensitive MencÃa 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.
