Tasting notes Xestal Mencía

A vintage where the Atlantic climate has ruled over the continental.  The lightness of this type of climate, together with the perfect sanitary condition of the vineyard, has given rise to an excellent vintage from this area.  The year began with typical temperate and rainy winter weather.  What differentiated the year was the intense rains that fell between the months of April and May, conditioning the vegetative development of the vine.    The summer was then noticeable for being warm and dry, the perfect combination for the perfect grape.  
Sight Intense and dark cherry colour. Bright. Fine tears on the glass. Nose Intense and powerful. Lots of notes of ripe fruit are released with very expressive toasted and spicy notes and a touch of milk and toffee, which gain ground over the aromas of fruit. Taste Good and embracing attack. Tasty and silky palate in which the fruit takes center stage. Fresh and well balanced expression. Very nice, long and persistent finish, which leaves a nice toasted and spicy aftertaste.

D.O. D.O. Bierzo

Winery Gancedo

In recent years, winemakers and developers have settled in the DO Bierzo with very plausible innovative ideas, investing heavily in local wineries, resulting in the production of personal and unique wines. There is no doubt that El Bierzo has become a trendy and cool D.O, aided by the spicy, delicate and velvety Mencia grape, whose character and great capacity of expression of terroir is undoubtedly the regions best asset. Even many compare it to the Pinot Noir, which together with the small scale style of production and topography of its vineyards, the traditional form of the Burgundian bottle used, and the original use of the names of towns and places in their best wines, resulted in this wine region being given the nickname of "little Spanish burgundy".
