Las Lamas Corullon Bierzo Mencía 2016

Visst är den ganska dyr, men klart den bästa Mencian jag druckit. Mörka bär, rosblad, clementiner, anis och söt kryddighet. Otroligt följdsam men med stabilt eftertryck och längd. Som en riktigt lyxig Côte de Nuits fast för (i jämförelse) ynka 899kr. Fynd. — 3 months ago

Corullon Bierzo Mencía 2000

Andrew Holod
9.7

From before the producer broke out the single vineyards, so simply labeled Corullon.
2000 was the second vintage I saw in the US. Came in funky 10 pack wooden boxes, as I recall.
Ruby w a more mature edge to the color. Amazing complexity; iron, mineral, bramble fruits, floral, hints of the ocean/iodine, cassis/minty. Palate is fully integrated and still with life.

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. — 7 months 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!

'Petalos' Mencía 2016

Just looking a little young and reticent at the moment. Florals over blueberry, plum, dark cherry along with touches of white pepper and leather. Drying tannins and slight glycerolic palate feel it currently disjointed — 9 months ago
