DOMINIO DO BIBEI 2016 | DOMINIO DO BIBEI | RIBEIRA SACRA | 95RP

"Bright ruby colored, the eponymous 2016 Dominio Do Bibei is mostly Brancellao (with 20% Mouratón), a lighter and more fragile grape variety that can produce the most elegant wines from the zone. This wine is floral, delicate and perfumed, with a medium body, very fine tannins and very good freshness in a vintage like 2016. It was selected from different vineyards, fermented destemmed in open barrels and matured in barrel and oak vat. This expresses like no other the combination of elegance and rusticity the region is capable of. And it also combines the wilder and the more commercial profile to make it understandable and pleasant for a wider audience and not only to the wine geeks. 1,963 bottles were filled in July 2018."

"I found the wines from Dominio do Bibei to follow the direction I already noticed last time, in which the top bottlings show a lot less influence from the aging in oak than they used to years ago. They changed some years ago, but because they release their wines later than most in the Ribeira Sacra zone, the effect has taken longer to reach the market. The single-vineyard white currently offered is from 2014, and the reds are from 2016, a cool and rainy year that produced fresher wines. They have 30 hectares of vineyards ranging between seven and 100 years of age in the Bibei Valley, in the villages of Langullo, Soutipedre, Val de Rodrigo and Mendoia. They produce between 100,000 and 120,000 bottles per vintage."
