Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

La Vigne de Sancho Martín is a red wine produced by Bodegas y Viñedos Mengoba in Carracedelo, Bierzo, without denomination of origin.

 

Bodegas y Viñedos Mengoba is a winery that was founded in 2007 by renown oenologist Gregory Pérez. After his first steps in France (Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste and, especially, in Château Cos d'Estournel), his family roots —and the encouragement of his friends— brought him back to Spain, to El Bierzo.

The philosophy of Gregory Pérez is based on respect and sustainability of the vines, applying non-aggressive treatments, without herbicides, working with local varieties with low yields, learning about the soils and making wine with traditional methods.

The vines are planted on very steep slopes at more than 600 metres of altitude, facing south and ventilated by constant air flow. The soils are comprised of a mixture of clays and decomposing slate, surrounded by forests and a great natural diversity.

The climate in this area is soft and mild, with a lot of humidity. The average annual temperature is of 12.3ºC, the minimum average temperature is 3.6ºC in winter and the maximum is 23.6ºC in the hottest months of the summer.

 

La Vigne de Sancho Martín is a wine made from Mencía, Alicante Bouschet and Godello from two small plots of very old vineyards located at 850 metres of altitude, planted on slate soils.

They are manually harvested and placed boxes. The grapes are selected in the vineyards. At the winery, the harvest ferments with the whole grapes, stomped with the feet in open 400-litre barrels, with a maceration of around 40 days. The malolactic fermentation takes place in 600-litre barrels, where it remains for around 12 months. It is bottled after a slight clarification without filtering.

 

La Vigne de Sancho Martín is a concentrated, silky and deep wine. The aromas of ripe black fruit stand out, slightly flowery and with notes of heather. Great balance between intensity and elegance.

Pictures and situation Mengoba
Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.  Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.
