Graduated from the School of Oenology and Viticulture of Bordeaux de Blanquefort in 1998. He worked at Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste and especially at Château Cos dEstournel between 1997 and 2000. After his first steps in France, his family roots - and the push of a friend - brought him to Spain and specifically to Bierzo.
The plots of Mencía are located in Espanillo at an altitude of 700 metres. The average age of the vineyard is 80 years.
After a manual harvest the grapes are partially destemmed and crushed, than moved to 5000L casks for fermentation and malolactic. The wine is aged in the same cask for 11 month, and bottled without filtration.
