Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Spiced cherry fruit, with a backbone of ripe tannin and generous oak. Flatteringly full-bodied in style, plenty of alcohol and a ripe, sweet impression. Holds its power in reserve, doesn’t appear overly alcoholic.

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

A bit developed, with crianza notes. Lovely fruit expression in mouth, with nice balance, despite a touch of acidity that is not well integrated. Nice meaty fruit in the finish, very clean.

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Lifted profile with red fruits underneath. Sumptuously juicy red berries on the mid palate, unexpectedly youthful for this vintage. The fruit stands apart in the wine, not showing the integration one would expect with this age and time in oak.
