Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Probably of academic interest only now. Tertiary, bottle-derived characteristics dominate. Savoury not fruity. Powerful, rich and raisiny fruit style. Drink up.

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Minty and balsamic aromas in the attack. Savia and dried apricots, blackberry fruit. Full body, still too young, very tannic, much concentrated, with a lovely finish, open and complex. Great terroir wine, needs time to develop. Long finish.

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Boldly aromatic, with notes of stewed cinnamon and vanilla plums. Overall sweet impression, with prickle of bramble acidity, and dry grainy finish. Once likeable but palate is tired now.
