Ahh, the Mencia grape. How we love the Mencia grape, and how it's turned a corner, now it's decidedly fashionable and so we're seeing more around. The beauty here is the strong perfume, the dense blackcurrant and cherry fruit that shines like a beacon even though it's given a generous seasoning of oak, 16 months new French oak in this case. It's a class act

- Product information
- Bierzo Descendientes J. Palacios
- Vintage: 2010
- This rich, deep, multi-layered wine has complex, elegant red fruit and violet aromas on the nose. The palate shows rich chocolate, cherry and raspberry characters along with fine-grained tannins and prominent, but beautifully balanced oak, pointing to a great future.
- About this bottle: Made by one of Spain’s most famous winemakers (Alvaro Palacios) this benchmark wine from the exciting Bierzo region is produced from old-vine Mencia grapes grown on precipitous slate soils. Palacios hails from an esteemed wine-making family in Rioja but is most famous for his early involvement in transforming the wines of Priorat. Bierzo was classified Denominación di Origen in 1989 and has a high proportion of old vines grown on extremely steep hillsides, much resembling Priorat.
