Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

A green, stalky note stifles the naturally forward fruit character in this wine. The palate is numbed by the alcohol level leaving a rather empty finish.

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Intense, very ripe aromas, a bit meaty. Some development. Full body, rich of fruit and tannins, very savoury. Clean finish, appetising, clean. Impressive wine for tapas, simple when tasting but lovely with food.

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Abundant roses and red fruits on the nose, seductive charm. Full bodied, rich with brambles and blueberries, given structure by a dry grip of tannin, fresh acidity and notes of liquorice. Finishes with a warm lick of alcohol
