2008 Tselepos Agiorgitiko Nemea (Previously $22)

SKU #1115442 89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2008 AGIORGITIKO was aged for 8 months in French oak (2nd and 3rd pass only). This is a bit compact, quite elegant in the mid-palate, but it is pure, velvety and lovely, with a notable backbone. There is a little oak, but that should integrate. It won't immediately be a 'wow' wine, but I predict it will grow on you as it grew on me. It was better after an hour or so. Fragrant, crisp and intensely flavorful, this Agiorgitiko has some nods to Burgundy, given its graceful presentation, aromatics and structure. It finishes well and should be a crowd pleaser, making everyone from novices to geeks happy. It is a good follow up to the 07, perhaps a bit steelier...Drink now-2018.  (6/ 2012)

Greece

- We have the Greeks to thank for introducing wine into Italy and France. And while the legacy of ancient Greek culture lives on, little recognition is given to its modern-day contributions to the wine industry. From the Peloponnese in the south, to Macedonia and Epirus in the north, and islands like Crete, Samos and Santorini, fine wine is once again being made and most of it from indigenous grape varieties not grown in other countries. Styles range from hearty, rustic reds to crisp, neutral whites and heavenly dessert wines. Click for a list of bestselling items from Greece.
