Pétalos Bierzo Mencía 2020


Love this stuff - love this grape, big fan of Alvaro Palacios… perfumed nose of red fruit and flowers, red flowers, and gentle spices. Smooth graceful on the palate, elegantly structured, generous red berried fruit, spice, licorice all wrapped in velvet — 14 days ago

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. — 3 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!

This was questionable at first taste, but after being in the glass it opened beautifully. Definitely decant. — 4 months ago

Villa de Corullon Bierzo Mencía 2019


Some tannins up front on open. Spicy, with earth tones. Almost like mushrooms. After some time open: pepper and cherries. Alcohol Comes through. Fruit really shines through after about 45mins to breath. — a month ago
