Casar Bierzo Mencia 2014
In the mouth it reveals itself as thick, tannic and delicious, with a slight acidic note, that is lively and vivacious and predicts a long shelf life. Raspberry and strawberry dominate over the American oak-induced vanilla. An intense, clean and direct wine. Primary aromas are accompanied by wood in the form of vanilla but not as the leading component.
Located within the limits of Carracedelo since 1998, CASAR DE BURBIA is one of the wineries of the Bierzo Appellation that has gotten the most notice from international critics and has contributed to place this region in Leon on the map for the wine sector. A family run company that owes its success to the initial gamble of the family patriarch, Nemesio Fernandez Bello, who began buying old Mencia vineyards located in the best areas of the region at the end of the 80’s that were practically abandoned, especially in the beautiful area of Valtuille de Arriba.
