Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

A note of Christmas liqueur cherries allied to sleek French oak on entry, Generously powerful and full-bodied, this needs food to make sense. Savoury and sweet elements are both evident. Finish a little hot.

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

The wine claims in the nose its origins, with its intense earthiness and slight barnyard notes. In the palate it is full bodied, built upon its expressive fruit, open. The finish is not very long, but clean.

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

A typical blend of fruit and farmyard on the nose. Bright young fruit still expressing itself powerfully; subtle notes of leather and liquorice underneath. The dry, grainy tannins contrast the silky freshness of the wine. Long,, concentrated.
