Product Description

"'Las Lamas' is from 0.54 hectares of south-facing slope on the hill named Las Lamas in Corullon, comprised of one each of 60, 90 and 100 year old patches of vines. Oak etc as for Moncerbal; unfiltered, total production 5 barrels. Equal parts carne and carnal, there’s wildness all about this wine.

Liquorous deep cherry and bramble rose nose with big soft red fruit-floral set, husky dark spice and pruny concentrated depth. More dense and savoury than the delicacy of Moncerbal, 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." Importer's Note

"The 2011 Las Lamas is a true expression of both the vintage and the vineyard, which is usually the most powerful of all the wines produced by the winery. Perhaps 2011 imprinted more character in the wine than 2010 did. The nose is full of blueberries, peach and gunpowder, wet slate, peat and smoke notes. It’s a powerful wine, this is the only vineyard where they have some clay mixed with the slate. Some fine-grained tannins hint at the need of a couple of years in bottle."
