Luna Beberide Mencía 2022
There are few wines with the honesty and expressiveness of the young mencía de Luna Beberide and, even less, if we consider its price. It is a monovarietal made from the south-facing slopes that the winery has in Villafranca del Bierzo and Cacabelos. There, at 700 meters above sea level, the strains take root on clay-calcareous soils, which give the wine body and elegance. Only the must of the best grapes ferments in stainless steel tanks to become a young wine with a clear desire to be something else. It boasts a bright raspberry color and an unusual complexity in wines without aging. It is able to transmit the minerality of the soil and evolve elegantly for a couple of years, although it can also be drunk right after bottling. Memories of wild strawberries dominate the passage by mouth, with precise wild acidity speeding up a sweet, tasty and slightly spicy step. Its fine tannins melt on the palate covering the cheeks of a silky touch that lasts several minutes after the last sip. It is juicy, fresh and vibrant, with aromas and flavors of great sharpness, alcohol content and a very direct message: that of fruit and terroir. Only one of the pioneer wineries of the denomination, driving the resurgence of Bercian wines, is able to interpret the Mencía grape with such transparency and obtain such a high level of expression. Old vines, viticulture without herbicides or pesticides and maximum respect for the juice of the grapes are the keys that guarantee the typicity and the unquestionable quality in each of the bottles of Luna Beberide Mencía.
