Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Classy, clean and correct, modern styled wine. Polite oak is at the service of the wine and doesn’t dominate the layers of vibrant black berry fruit. Elegant and restrained stylish overall. Very good.

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Oaky, with blackberry notes, very modern. Dense but smooth, easy, evident, very clean. A nice wine, but it lacks sense of origin.

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Complex aromatic profile: fine blend of oak with ripe dark fruit. Rich, succulent palate, with cooked black fruits with sweet spices, and a coating of oak tannin. Lacks balancing freshness.
