Losada La Bienquerida Mencía 2019
- Medium bodied
James Suckling rates this amongst the best wines 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 100% mencía ; 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.
“A dense and layered mencia with dark fruit, spices and hints of dark chocolate. Medium to full body. Creamy texture. Needs two or three years to open. Try after 2023, but already approachable.”
Full price $160.00 from the producer.
