Individual judge’s scores: Pedro Ballesteros Torres MW 16 Sarah Jane Evans MW 18 Mike Ritchie MW 17
The glass is alive with aromas of baked black plums, overlaid with cedar and smoke. Big, bold and modern-styled Bierzo. Profound and rich in style with dense, tarry undertones and a lift of black fruit acidity, plus a punch of black pepper.
