Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Meaty and savoury Mencia style on display here. Ungenerous fruit as a result of the ‘funky’ character. Ready now.

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Minty notes over black fruit aromas, a bit developed, elegant. Very powerful, with lots of tannins and fruit. Complex, needs cellaring to integrate. Very dense and deep. A terroir wine, long and personal. It will get better for five years,

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Dark fruit, cedar and smoke. Intense attack, with baked blackcurrant fruits, liquorice, garrigue, boldly spiced. Fruit is becoming tired, though palate still shows good concentration.
