Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Rich dark coloured plummy fruit richness on entry, vibrant wild berry and bramble fruit notes, well-integrated now after some time in bottle. Big and powerful wine, well-constructed. 2012 – 2016 18

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Ripe black and blueberry fruit notes. Meaty overtones, nice intensity. Balanced, open, velvety tannins, very fruity, a bit on the warm side but highly enjoyable with food. Very clean finish. Nice wine,

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Typical Mencía appeal of flowers and red fruits with undernote of herbs. Slight hint of reduction. Dense dark fruits on palate, balanced by chalky grip of tannin. Lacks a little freshness.
