Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Fruit compote, stewed fruit style evident on the nose, tough, alcoholic palate, dies quickly at the finish.

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Intense, quite meaty, animal, wild, a bit sweaty. Rustic, with high tannins and nice balancing acidity. Very particular, different, uniquely identifiable as mencía, you may love or hate it, but will realise the difference. Persistent finish.

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Dusky floral, smoky aromas, with a hint of reduction. Silky rounded mid palate, with abundant plums and cherries. Tangy acidity emphasises the grip of the tannin. Bold, full flavoured, energetic expression of the variety. Long, warm finish
