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

For many thousands of years, the Agiorgitiko grape varietal has thrived in the arid mountainsides of the Peloponnese, where it is prized for its hardiness and high resistance to high temperatures. Typically, wineries in Greece cultivate Agiorgitiko grapes to have low yields with concentrated flavors, in an attempt to get the strongest characteristics from these flavorful grapes. Typically, Agiorgitiko grapes have beautiful plum flavors, with notes of other dark fruits and a spicy character, although they are notable for the fact that they respond very well to a range of wine making techniques. As such, there are many different styles of wine made from the Agiorgitiko grape, ranging from tannic and astringent to very soft and rounded. They are also popular with wineries due to the fact that they grow in often very infertile land, and improve the quality of the soil in which they are cultivated.

Country: Greece

Thanks to thousands of years of viticulture, and a dedication to quality and experimentation, Greek wines remain in a league of their own and continue to surprise and delight wine lovers around the world. From the refined and delicious Agiorghitiko wines, with their deep ruby red color and intense fruit flavors, to the unusual and highly aromatic fortified wines made with the black Mavrodaphne grapes, Greek wine is renowned for its variety and consistent excellence. It seems the blazing Mediterranean sunshine allows wineries to make the most of the late harvests and all the intensity of flavor this brings, resulting in wines which are bursting with fruit-forward character and unusual aromas.
