Dominio do Bibei Lacima 2010 (RP:95 - 2007)


Dominio do Bibei 是位於 Ribeira Sacra D.O 分支產區 Quiroga-Bibei,像所有Ribeira Sacra 分支產區一樣,此地區擁有令人歎為觀止的山脈和河流,但比其他分支產區面積較小和乾旱。 Javier Domínguez 就是這個葡萄園的操作者。

在那些梯田上種有 Mencía、Garnacha、Brancellao 和 Mouratón,新田地透過開墾和使用上述品種的老樹而設立,其餘白葡萄品種包括 Doña Blanca、Godello 和 Albariño。這些田地擁有不同面向和土壤種類,因為這裡是接觸 Valdeorras 之處,所以山區的土壤包括頁岩、花崗岩和粘土。

100% Mencia





Dominio do Bibei is located in the Quiroga-Bibei sub-zone of the Ribeira Sacra D.O. Like all Ribeira Sacra sub-zones, this area is one of spectacular mountain ranges and flowing rivers, but it is drier and harsher than the other sub-zones. Javier Domínguez is the author of this crazy adventure to recapture a once grand vineyard. 

Planted on these terraces are old vines of Mencía, Garnacha, Brancellao and Mouratón. New plots are being planted using cuttings from these old vines so as to maintain clonal diversity in the vineyard. In addition to the red varietals, there are plantings of white grape varietals such as Doña Blanca, Godello and Albariño (the cuttings of this last grape being from Do Ferreiro). The sites vary greatly based on the orientation of the plots and the soil types. Because this is a transition zone which touches Valdeorras, soils of slate, granite and clay are interspersed among the hillsides.
