Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Dense, saturated purple colour, plump black fruit juiciness, bitter chocolate richness balances the fruit compote, bramble jam impression on the palate. Powerful and big. Quite impressive.

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Very meaty, wild, original, with some plum and blueberry notes. Slight savia aromas. Uniquely mencía. Balanced, not very finely grained, open, a bit too warm, and alcoholic. Nice expression but a bit loose in structure.

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Subtle aromatics of black fruits, spices. Rich initial impression, with roasted fruits and toast. Warm burst of alcohol, dry grip of tannin. Mid palate hollow.
