Quinta das Lamelas

Post by JB vintage » 19:09 Fri 14 Nov 2014

Hi,
We found a "new" house when visiting Porto in September: Quinta das Lamelas. Does anyone know anything about this house? At the Vinologia bar in Porto we found Q das Lamelas Vintage 2006, 2007, 2010, and 2012. I have seen tawny as well as white port from them too. Which vintages have they made?

I think I've only seen the tawny port from Lamelas. Did you get to try their vintage ports? What did you think of them?
Top Ports in 2019 (so far): Cockburn 1947 and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
2018 Ports of the year: São Leonardo 1927 White Port (Bottled 2018), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994

Not bad at all actually for a young port. They had 4 different vintage port at the vinolgia. See tasting notes at http://www.vintageport.se/house/QuintaLamelas.php

So I did. Serves me right for not checking my tasting notes before making such a bold statement.

I know the owner, and have tasted the wines.

Try the WHITE 10Y and the WHITE 40Y - AMAZING

And the hole series 10-20-30-40 Y tawny - SUPER
Any time not spend drinking port, is a waste of time.

I had their 40Y old white at Vinologia in 2012. Top Notch. A must try before you die.

I always had problems with Lamelas, knowing the owner and the house quite well. The Vintages are ok and they tend to produce them almost every year.

The Tawnies were difficult as they used (dont know if they still do) bad spirit in there, resulting in the fact that 10-30 are almost undrinkeable and the 40y is allright. They are quite moderately priced though.

The Douro DOCs are allright.

Best
