Bierzo Mencía 2000

Medium Ruby in colour. Savoury Earthy Plummy aromas with a touch of barnyard. Earthy plum notes on the palate of medium plus intensity to begin with but faded somewhat after around 40 minutes. Have always loved the Mencia grape from Bierzo and this is proof it can cellar 19 years although it faded a bit - 95 points at the beginning; 92 points at the end. — 4 years ago

I have a few of these early vintage bottles kicking around my cellar. Nice to see a recent note about how they are showing/have aged. Thanks!

Pétalos Bierzo Mencía 2020

2020 vintage from Northwest Spain’s Galacia region, with moderate tannin before resting, think Merlot. Balanced. Tart cherry, blackberry, some sort of stone on the end. Really nice. Pleasant mouth filling tartness on the finish and dryness, but after the bottle is open a for a bit it’s less dry. — 2 months ago
