Moncerbal proviene de un paraje diáfano y claro, con suelos de pizarra, cuarzo y mármol. Toda la transparencia de este entorno fluye delicadamente hacia el vino otorgándole una espléndida fluidez, un paso largo, sensaciones minerales y una interesantísima complejidad aromática.

The 2016 Moncerbal is a tad riper than Las Lamas from that same vintage. The fruit was darker and there was a touch of earth in the palate that lent it a subtle rusticity, as it doesn't have the clarity and precision. The palate revealed some dusty tannins and a dry finish. This is great but simply suffers in comparison with some of the other wines from the 2016 vintage. 3,523 bottles and some larger formats produced. There will be no 2017 of Moncerbal, as hail destroyed the crop, and we'll have to wait until the 2018 is released sometime in late 2020. The 2018 Moncerbal has the potential to be the finest Moncerbal ever.
A dark and mysterious wine with an iron-firm core and a stunning balance of bright wild berries and elegant tannins. Very long, super mineral finish that promises long aging potential. Barrel sample.
One of Spain’s greatest wines, with a nose reminiscent of tar and roses, comparable to the best Barolo, a finely grained texture, and a mineral tension difficult to describe. A benchmark for the Mencía grape, which gives distinctive quality only in the best places in Bierzo and Ribeira Sacra. The 2008 was perfection in a glass. 14 months in oak.
