Why do we love this wine?

James Suckling thinks this is the best wine from Bierzo, in Spain’s north-west, and one of the best from Spain. Wow! Big call, but we have tasted this deep and layered wine and agree that it is exceptional. The wine is made from 95% Mencía and 5% indigenous local varieties; from a single vineyard call ‘La Bienquerida’, which is an ancient, 100+ year old plot.

Give the wine some air and enjoy tasting it evolve. It’s a fascinating variety, and this example has everything from tar and roses to potpourri and Indian spices happening. It’s got lovely medium weight and crunchy acidity, draped with dripping cherry juiciness, and a dark and slatey finish. Concentrated and serious, and very, very delicious.
