Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Simple, crunchy cherry fruit aroma, satisfying full-bodied mouthful, a slight jag from uppish alcohol level, well-balanced finish.

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Not very intense in nose, slightly vinous, shows nice berry fruit and opens up with meaty and liquorice notes. Concentrated, spicy, fruity, dense but balanced. Highly enjoyable, built upon its fruit, pure, precise, up-front. Simple when simplicity means sheer pleasure without any complication. Wine for tapas, lovely because it is wild.

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Subtle aromas of baked red fruits, with undernotes of fennel and mint. Generous supple mouth, with a dollop of bright acidity, clean and refreshing, a youthful mouthful of brambles and blueberries. Grip of tannin. Typical Mencía for drinking now
