Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Well integrated impression with a developed colour and savoury mouthfeel. Nicely put together. Tingling freshness and vivacity.

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Discreet, elegant, with some development but keeping the mencía signature of earthy and meaty notes. Balanced, open, velvety, easy-going, not very complex, in a classic Spanish crianza style. Clean and attractive finish, not very long. A nice wine, lovely with consistent food

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Dense roasted fruits with vanilla and cigar box highlights on the nose. Dark savoury profile on the palate: liquorice, nutmeg and leather over black fruits. Long finish, begin to tire
