Professional Wine Reviews for Boutari Grande Reserve Naoussa 2004

Rated 90 by Robert Parker
The 2004 GRANDE RESERVE has powerful aromatics, a touch of funk and a touch of game, plus more intensity than the ’06 regular reviewed this issue. Focused, complex and earthy, despite the time in oak, this is quite elegant in the mid-palate, has a crisp, somewhat astringent finish and develops slowly but beautifully in the glass. I think it will fulfill the promise I see. It is not for those who want smooth and sexy—at least not yet. It should hold very well, although it is quite approachable now. Drink now-2024.

Additional Information on Boutari Grande Reserve Naoussa 2004

Winery: Boutari

Varietal: Xinomavro

One of the most important grape varietals to come out of Greece and Macedonia has been the Xinomavro grape, a black skinned varietal famed and adored for its high tannin content and complex, deep and interesting flavors The high amounts of tannin present in the blue-black skins of the Xinomavro varietal make it an ideal grape for barrel aging, and this process helps reveal the true complexity of the fruit, and its wonderful potential for rich and unique flavors Commonly, aged Xinomavro wines hold a varied bouquet reminiscent of Mediterranean foods such as black olives and dried tomatoes, and a deep, dark fruit flavor which is ideal for accompanying many different foods. As such, their popularity is growing around the world, and this grape is in high demand by those seeking something a little different.

Country: Greece

Few countries in the world can claim such an illustrious history of viticulture as that found in Greece, just as few countries can benefit from such an impressive range of terrain as that found across the mainland and islands of this ancient and fascinating land. When we consider that grapes are grown everywhere from the tiny islands in the Aegean sea, to larger land masses such as Rhodes and Crete, on the arid and rocky mainland and mountainous regions of Greek Macedonia, it is no wonder Greek wines show such huge diversity in style, flavor, aroma and character. One thing remains consistent, however, and that is the dedication to producing distinctly 'Greek' wines, full of characteristics which reflect the slow evolution of viticulture in a country which has been producing wine for several thousand years. Whilst certain wines, such as Retsina and those made from the Agiorghitiko grapes have long since been popular with fine wine drinkers world-wide, Greek wineries are continuing to produce superb wines using a wide range of native and imported grape varietals, meaning there are always plenty of new flavors and aromas to discover.
