Mengoba 'Espanillo' - 2015

Bordeaux-born Grégory Pérez worked at Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste and Château Cos d’Estournel before he moved to Spain. He settled down in Bierzo where he works vineyards in Espadillo. In this mountainous area soils are mostly clay and decomposed slate. His wines are made based on eight key principles: soil knowledge, biodiversity protection, indigenous grapes, no aggressive treatments, no herbicides, low yields, selection of grapes in the vineyard and traditional winemaking and aging. Real Bierzo, altitude, slate soils, old vines, animal traction to work the vineyards... What else can you ask for? Serious, beautiful nose of mountain flowers, dark forest fruit, clean and fresh earthiness. The acidity is high but integrated, the tannins and texture show the wide minerality provided by the slate soils. Long and energetic with hight altitude elegant Bierzo style
