Red Wine /// Mencia // Bierzo / Spain
Every time I drink this wine upon every release, I wonder to myself - how does he do it? Pound for pound this is one of the best value wines on the planet – incredible that this is his regional wine. Mencia in all its majestic splendour, it displays haunting perfume and gorgeous colour. The palate is rich and deep but at the same time juicy with a fresh spritzy acidity. There is balance, texture, complexity and a magnificent finish. Wherever you stand on Mencia, expert or novice; this needs to be tried. This is Corullon Bierzo Mencia at the very top of its game.

Their regional wine achieves unheard of levels of complexity and nuance. Some of the vineyards are not yet certified organic, but the objective is to achieve it in the next five years. There is an aromatic purity and elegance that is very captivating with a faint flinty background, the cherry essence (Mediterranean) and a touch of fern (Atlantic) plus a honeyed twist that shows up after a couple of hours in the glass. It has a silky texture, soft and caressing, with very fine tannins and the faint bitter twist in the finish. In an ideal world, this should be the first wine people drink from Bierzo, and fortunately, in many cases, it is, given the availability. 93 POINTS WINE ADVOCATE
