Soto del Vicario

Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Rustic edge to the fruit, this is well-knitted together after 3 years in bottle. A clean, dry impression left on the finish. Ready now.

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Some oxidative development, discreet crianza notes. Rich, quite full of flavours, not very delicate, slightly fatigued. To drink in one year time.

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Refined floral and developed oak notes on the nose, with bold fruit. The wine itself is complex and well integrated, blending bramble fruits with savoury spices and finishing with fine grained tannin and a clean minerality.
