Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Vibrant red fruit juiciness and smoky oak. Now fully mature and ready to go, all elements integrated. Powerful but not without balance and charm.

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Shows oxidisation. The fruit is not brilliant but slightly tired. In palate it is balanced and attractive, excellent for roasted lamb, but in tasting it lacks fruitiness.

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Vivid aromatics, alive with red stone fruits and vanilla. Dense, sumptuous palate led by crunchy red cherries overlaid with velvety vanilla oak. Medium bodied, bold and well balanced, finishing with brisk tannic grip. Long satisfying finish.
