Vivir El Vino, 365 Wine Guide to the Year 2022


11 de Januray de 2022



La Bienquerida 2019  98 points

Clean, intense, elegant and sober, it is an "all in one" to enjoy the area and the variety. Jammy fruit, licorice, toffee, new leather, sweet spices and a pleasant mineral side. The palate is full-bodied, long and broad, with ripe tannins and excellent acidity, where the nose is overturned in its way, with an intense and long finish.

James Suckling chooses five wines from DO Bierzo for his list TOP 100 WINES OF SPAIN 2021


10 de December de 2021



several wines from our DO have been included by American wine critic James Suckling in his list of the Top 100 wines in Spain.

#7 Losada Vinos de Finca, La Bienquerida 2018, 97 p.
#40 Descendientes de J. Palacios, Las Lamas 2018, 97 puntos
#43 Descendientes de J. Palacios, Moncerbal 2018, 96 puntos
#57 Losada Vinos de Finca, Altos de Losada Godello, Villa de San Lorenzo 2019, 94 puntos
#58 Pittacum Mencía 2018, 94 puntos



Just over a month ago, we finished our tasting of 1,500 Spanish wines, and from those we whittled our list down to the Top 100 for 2021. Above all, it shows that the country is currently at a crossroads of change, with innovative, young producers joining and sometimes surpassing their well-versed and traditional cohort in making superb wines in a mosaic of styles from revived vineyards, cooler terroirs and forgotten grapes.

There are seven mencia wines on the Top 100 list this year, led by the Losada Vinos de Finca Mencía Bierzo Altos de Losada La Bienquerida 2018 at No. 7 – a wine defined by its incredible value for money and irresistible drinkability with fresh, crunchy fruit and ultra-fine tannins. If you have been craving a serious Beaujolais cru, then you should not miss old-vine mencia from Bierzo, Valdeorras and Ribeira Sacra.

SPANISH RENAISSANCE: FRESH AND LOCAL WINES NUDGE ‘SOPHISTICATION’ ASIDE. James Suckling. Friday, October 15, 2021


18 de de 2021



There’s no denying that the main calling card for Spanish wines is their affordability, although more sophisticated elements of the winemaking process itself, such as oak maturation, blending and oxidation, are seeping into the country’s overall wine personality profile and in some cases gaining an upper hand over more intrinsic factors like varietal character and provenance.

But over the last five to 10 years, we have also seen Spanish winemakers craft more balanced, fresh and terroir-transparent wines, with less of a focus on so-called sophistication in the process and more attention paid to local grape varieties. And after tasting nearly 1,500 Spanish wines this year, we see a renaissance happening in the country, with more wineries aiming to fine-tune their style and make more drinkable wines, showing plenty of nuance and less manipulated extraction or obvious new oak cosmetics.

Overall, it’s a better way of bringing authenticity to consumers’ dinner tables, giving them (and us) a chance to appreciate more aesthetically provocative wines. Winemakers are no longer simply producing coconutty, transparently flattering wines and expecting success. In fact, regions like Galicia are going in the opposite direction, breaking out of the hidebound winemaking mode and taking aim at a higher aesthetic: zingy freshness and drinkability.

Using grapes like mencia, albariño, and godello, northwest Atlantic-influenced regions like Galicia are spearheading the Spanish take on oceanic freshness, with pioneering winemakers like the Palacio family, Telmo Rodriguez, Raul Perez and Paul Hobbs, who has partnered with Galician winemaker Antonio Lopez, taking Spain’s dynamic wine scene to the next level.

The old-vine mencia, from the rugged vineyards of Bierzo, Ribeira Sacra, and Valdeorras, is Spain’s tribute to Beaujolais sensibility, with a bit more depth. These are usually crunchy, medium-bodied wines with bright acidity and savory tannins, exuding authentic, fresh, flinty red and blue fruit and a cool herbal note reminiscent of a pure and well-made Loire cabernet franc. The use of indigenous yeast and some whole clusters also capture the fresh and authentic side of mencia, adding a wild yet ethereal, tangy and racy character.

The Palacios consistently make great mencias that we rate very highly. But if you are looking for value from mencia and some field blends, then the Envínate Ribeira Sacra Lousas Viñas de aldea Vinos Atlánticos 2019 and the Losada Vinos de Finca Mencía Bierzo Altos de Losada La Bienquerida 2018 are great choices for your shopping cart. The massive success of these revived old mencia vineyards, on their elevated, steep slopes, prove that all the hard work of both Bierzo’s cooperatives and winemakers has paid off.

Decanter. Best new Spanish wines: 18 to try. Altos de Losada 2018, 92


14 de September de 2021



Alongside its classic styles, Spain is producing a raft of exciting alternatives, taking advantage of new winemaking techniques while rediscovering native grapes and reinventing traditional styles. Chris Wilson recommends a selection of classic and new-wave bottles from recent tastings.


Altos de Losada 2018, vino de villa de Valtuille de Arriba
The thick-skinned Mencía grape can produce butch, heavy wines but here it’s showcased in all its floral, red-fruited glory. A light-footed approach draws out the strawberry jam and blueberry characters, which are nicely off-set by toasty oak and a smidge of set honey on the finish. Refreshing and approachable.
