Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine Skouras Megas Oenos 2004

Rated 90 by Robert Parker
The 2004 Megas Oenos is the first in the mini-vertical presented this issue. It is the familiar blend of mostly old vines Agiorgitiko and a chunk of Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in new French oak for 20 months. This has aged beautifully - if your tastes run to mature wines. If this elegant wine (the alcohol level is just 12.8%) doesn't make you think 'mature Bordeaux,' I'd be surprised. It is probably aging quite a bit faster than most Bordeaux, however, already showing forest floor and tertiary nuances that give it a complex and earthy feel.

Additional Information on Domaine Skouras Megas Oenos 2004

Winery: Domaine Skouras

Varietal: Agiorgitiko

The Agiorgitiko grape varietal has been grown in the Nemea region of the Peloponnese mountains for thousands of years, and is now one of the flagship grape varietals of the Greek wine industry. It is most commonly associated with strongly fruit-forward red wines, full of spicy notes and plummy, dark fruit flavors However, its low acidity often means it is blended with grape varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, to produce wines more suited to modern palates. One of the main features which makes Agiorgitiko grapes so popular with wine makers is the fact it grows in very arid and infertile land, and responds very well indeed to winery techniques and viticultural methods. As such, there are a wide range of wines made from the Agiorgitiko grape, including soft and rounded bottles, and also dry and tannic wines which are enjoyed in many countries around the world.

Country: Greece

As one of the oldest wine producing countries in the world, Greece has millenia of experience and expertise when it comes to viticulture, and has developed a set of flavors and characteristics which are found nowhere else on earth. The ancient Greeks revered and deified wine, and were the first true innovators in the history of wine, adding everything from seawater to honey and spices in order to find exciting new taste combinations and aromas. Today, Greek wines are just as varied, although far more refined and sophisticated than their ancient counterparts. The practice of enhancing Greek wines with aromatic substances never left the country, though, as can be seen in the popular Retsina wines, which use pine resin to provide their unique taste and aroma combinations. There is far more to Greek wine than merely Retsina, however, and the vast variety on offer is a testament to the expertise of Greek wineries making the most of the wonderful climate, terrain and grape varietals they work with.
