Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Another developed wine from 2007, with savoury, gamey character and a mature profile. All nicely integrated, complete and satisfying on the finish, but in the autumn of its career. Recommended but not a keeper, for immediate consumption.

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Meaty, intense, very warm aromas, particular. Well structured, with soft and abundant tannins, gentle and deep. Long

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Smoky funky aromas. Sweet silky fruit with fading tannins. A little hot.
