Nemea Grande Cuvée Agiorgitiko, Domaine Skouras 2019

4.666670000 star rating 3 Reviews
‘For BBQs, Sunday lunches or generous solo sipping when the sun shines, so it's one of my seasonal picks. There’s little better than this richly fruited agiorgitiko from an excellent producer in the Peloponnese. High-quality new oak gives a sense of indulgence to the brambly redcurrant fruit and supple tannins, and it makes a good alternative to modern Rioja or premium Bordeaux.’ Matthew Horsley, buyer for Greece.

Skouras

George Skouras, who trained as a winemaker in Dijon and began his career in Cephallonia, moved to Nemea in 1986, where he created his own winery and became influential in the Greek wine renaissance. He makes wine from both indigenous (particularly aghiorghitiko) and international varieties (loved by the domestic market) in a state of the art winery outside Argos. They own 40 hectares and 40 more under contract. His Cuvee Prestige wines are models of their kind and his top wines, Nemea Grande Cuvee and Megas Oinos are world class.

A juicy nose full of blackberries and cherries, smooth yet balanced, intense yet elegant. The palate is serious, flirting with the austere – or at least austere for Nemea standards. Compared to the average Greek red, it is still flavourful and juicy, a basket of red and black fruit. But this is also a Nemea of the old school. People today tend to think of Agiorgitiko as the preeminent ready-to-drink variety. The Skouras Grande Cuvée is a wine that rewards those that can wait. (Drink 2025 – 2031 when it will be 93-95 pts.)
