Review

Here we have a rounded, elegant and well-designed wine, the sort of wine to suit everyone's taste. A creamy wine in all respects (dense tears, maturity on the nose and smooth juiciness on the palate), that presents the Mencia's fruit character with interesting but always complementary ageing notes (good work with the wood), and offers real pleasure. A wine to enjoy on its own or on any occasion, a wine for conversation but also a good companion to marinated meat dishes or a fine fillet, for example.

As its name clearly indicates, Dominio de Tares Cepas Viejas is made using Mencia grapes grown on vines over 60 years old, from vineyards cultivated on terraces and hill-slopes with gravel and slate soils, a location that contributes to their ripeness and elegance. In appearance it displays a dark Picota cherry colour with good density and slow-running tears, and releases fine aromas in the glass: ripe fresh fruit, a little more red than what we will find on the palate, but both are there, spicy notes of pepper and cocoa, with lactic and protein notes in the foreground, and some fresh aromas that appear in crescendo at the same time as others emerge of a smoky, earthy nature, along with biscuits and cinnamon. Complex, rounded, balanced.

On the palate, it follows the same pattern, although the fruit ripeness identifies better with black fruit. Having a sweet entry, it is intense, medium-bodied and light in the mouth, juicy, with good persistence and a slightly bitter finish, not at all harsh. A great classic.

Food pairing

der schmeckt jedem

Einsehr leckeres Tröpfchen das bisher jedem gemundet hat. Unkompliziert und vollmundig, einfach lecker. Ein ausgewogener Wein mit leichtem, verträglichem Holz

savoir aimer le vin

Je réside dans le Sud Ouest de la France depuis plus de 30 ans. Et lorsque les habitants de cette région discutent "vin", ils ne parlent que du Bordeaux. Pour ma part, j'ai eu la chance qu'un ami, parti passer ses vacances en Espagne, vienne me voir au retour et m'apporte une caisse de "Bébéride"....

Excellent value for money

Great depth of flavour, fruit & tannins. Superb quality for this price. Very drinkable now and will also age. Highly recommended

No me ha sorprendido

Me lo recomendó un amigo como uno de los mejores Bierzos, pero no ha estado a la altura de mis expectativas.
