Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Smoky plush oak allied to layers of black fruit is evident on the nose. Still excellent and fresh, with coffee/mocha notes vying for attention alongside the liqueur cherry ripeness. Good for a while yet.

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Intense, with chalky notes and dried apricots. Slight mustiness, announcing some ageing. Juicy, rich, savoury, open, easy-going. Highly enjoyable wine.

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Earthy meaty with kumquat fruit notes. Wine begins with juicy black fruits but quickly develops a dried profile with a grip of tannin and uneven finish.
