Η άποψη του Σίμου Γεωργόπουλου
Δημοσιογράφος Οίνου-Οινοκκριτικός
Σκούρας, Νεμέα Grand Cuvee 2014: Μια Νεμέα που κάθε χρόνο αποδεικνύεται όλο και πιο φίνα. Ξύσμα μολυβιού, κρέας και πιπέρια τονίζουν τον όξινο, ντελικάτο χαρακτήρα του κρασιού, που απαιτεί μια 10ετία για την απόλυτη αρμονία. ( * * * ½ )

Xinomavro was an eye-openner
Review by Alan Bell (Posted on 07/08/2018)

This grape was totally unknown to me. A native grape, which produced a taste which can not be compared to other ubiquitous varieties. I used it at a tasting session with ten friends, all scored it 10/10 for nose, colour and taste. I would like to revisit this vintage in 5-10 years time.
