Bodega del Abad

Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Gamey, farmyard-like funkiness. A fully mature wine with some good features, but does need to be drunk up soon.

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Quite oaky, with berry fruit behind, very classic. Densely built, with elegant tannins, quite modern, not very characteristic of Bierzo. Nice finish, open.

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Dominant oak to the nose, roasted, nutty and smoky. Blackcurrant fruit, smoky, chewy, dusty tannins, fruit beginning to show its age. Long finish, balanced.
