Descendientes de José Palacios Las Lamas 2019

97 POINTS: Luis Gutiérrez - Robert Parker's, The Wine Advocate
96 POINTS: James Suckling

“The grapes used for the 2019 Las Lamas come from a selection of 1.75 hectares they own in the paraje in the village of Corullón, not far from the winery that gives this wine its name. This is a south-facing location with a tendency to good ripeness and generous wines. It fermented in oak vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in a combination of oak barrels and foudres for eight months. This is the prototype of a wine from clay-rich soils; it's round and vinous, refreshed by the altitude and the slate. This is more lactic than the Moncerbal, very classical and with fine but grainy tannins. Whatever it is, with years in bottle, this is more vinous and rounder and the Moncerbal is sharper. 5,520 bottles, 118 magnums and some larger formats produced.”
—Luis Gutiérrez - Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate

“This is very structured and long with fantastic tannin intensity and balance. It’s very long – almost endless. Medium to full body. Goes on for minutes. Tight at the end. Lots of energy and focus. Needs four or five years to come together.”
—96/100: James Suckling

The legendary Priorat winemaker, Alvaro Palacios, founded Descendientes de J. Palacios in 1998 alongside his nephew, Ricardo Perez, and together they have gained an incredible reputation for their fragrant and elegant wines made from the local variety, Mencia. Las Lamas includes a small percentage of white varieties and is sourced from parcels ranging between 50 and 120 years of age. A great wine for fans of Burgundy or Barolo that wish to branch out a bit.
