Characteristics of Bembibre

Bembibre is a red wine produced by the Dominio de Tares winery in Bierzo. The winery is found in the heart of El Bierzo, north-west of the province of León.

Bembibre is 100% produced from Mencía, the most characteristic variety of Bierzo. The grapes come from old vines, more than 60 years old, planted on slate and granite soils with a deep incline.

The vines are located on 6 different plots and are at an altitude of 600m above sea level. The harvest is done by hand, bunch by bunch, and grapes are selected upon sorting tables upon reaching the winery.

Once in the winery and stemmed, the grapes undergo 25 days of fermentation in stainless steel tanks with natural yeasts. After winemaking is complete, Bembibre ages for 16 months in Allier French oak barrels of 225 litres. Once aged, it is bottled unfiltered and spends another 24 months in bottle.

Alcohol: 14.5ºC

Tasting notes Bembibre

Sight Cherry red high layer with violet hues. Clean and bright. Nose Medium to high intensity with aromas of red fruit and toasty notes, menthol and spices. Taste Strong and round entry. Step is fruity with lactic memories. Very well balanced with integrated tannins. Long finish.
Sight Cherry red colour with some violet hues and garnet rim. Dense, clean and bright tear. Nose Red fruit and some black fruits with memories of raisins and nuts with lightly toasted, coffee, snuff, liquorice and certain spices. Taste Powerful on the palate. With lots of volume and a long journey. Again there is fruit with some dairy and spicy notes. Good acidity and freshness. Very balanced. Perfectly polished tannins. Long finish.
Sight Bright cherry red colour with violet reflections. High robe. Dense tears which stain the glass. Nose Its intense and fleshy notes of red and black fruit (juicy black plums) are mixed with several expressive toasted and mineral aromas. Through its long evolution in the glass, abundant notes of spices, tobacco and liquorice appear along with balsamic hints and aromatic floral and grassy touches. Taste A powerful, well-bodied and bulky Bierzo wine, with a long, wide, embracing and very well balanced mid palate. Its fleshy notes of fruit and its toasted aromas are wrapped in spices and hints of menthol. Silky, soft and fresh wine. Perfectly balanced acidity and ripe and well integrated tannins. Long and persistent finish.  A round wine.
Sight Being a visual looks very red picota covered with violet tones in the meniscus. Nose Fruit in the nose are very strong memories of red fruit (raspberry, cherry) and a powerful black plum and floral tones in the range of roses and violets, very elegant and complementary vegetables, green leaves, snuff and aromatic woods (sandalwood) that provide a fragrant touch indeed.
Taste

In the mouth shows a structure with a very good step in mouth fat, full, soft and elegant. Final comprehensive and very long, with a very good persistence, it is guided by a good acidity, dark fruit and balsamic, with input from roasted (cocoa) and in mint posgusto where reappears the heart of black plum and spicy.

D.O. Bierzo

Winery Dominio de Tares

The Designation of Origin Bierzo is located in a clearly separated region in the western province of Leon. It occupies a tectonic hollow or depression surrounded by important mountain formations (Montes de León and Cantabrian Mountains), slightly open to the southwest along the valley of the river Sil, which allows a clear Atlantic influence that provides climate traits with advantages both from the Mediterranean and from the Atlantic climate at once: mild temperatures, high solar radiation and good water supply.
