Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Classy impression of savoury/sweet black fruit and some generous support from well-integrated oak. Lip-smacking ripeness and plush use of barrel-ageing. Excellent finish that goes on and on! Very good.

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Minty and toasty notes give ground to nice sous-bois and blackberry aromas, with a slight sweaty touch. Well structured, heavy but not overpowering, with balancing acidity and fresh fruit expression. Open finish.

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Boldly aromatic with roasted fruits, cocoa, vanilla and cedar. Super-rich palate, with sweet, jammy fruit, supple mid palate, tangy acidity, and weighty punch of alcohol.
