Domaine Skouras "Megas Oenos" Peloponnese Red 2013

92 Our Score
92 Wine Advocate
(12/30/2016) "The 2013 Megas Oenos is 75% Agiorgitiko and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged for 18 months in French oak (half new, half used). It comes in at 14% alcohol. Like most of Skouras' offerings this issue, this has a slightly tart edge in its youth and fine mid-palate finesse. Very crisp and silky, it is more Burgundy than Bordeaux. Also like its siblings, this is rather tight, unevolved and lacking in expression at the moment. As it airs, its power comes out well before the fruit. This looks like a beauty in the making, with a very old school feel, but like so many of them, it isn't the easiest of wines to fully appreciate on release. It does have considerable upside potential, perhaps even more than I suspect. Give this some air and time. Given the price point, it will be a huge bargain when it comes around. It is better drunk in three to five years and it will hold well for 10-15 years, or more after that."

Domaine Skouras "Megas Oenos" 2012

93 Wine Advocate
(12/2015) "The 2012 Megas Oenos is a 75/25 blend of Old Vines Agiorgitiko and Cabernet Sauvignon. It was aged for 18 months in French oak (half new, half used). If you want to see the difference in a young Megas Oenos and one settling into maturity (like the 2005 oldie, also reviewed), this provides a good example. Here, the fruit and the oak are both fresher. This wine, though, maintains its elegance. The power is actually better controlled here, the tannins present but relatively riper. In this big vintage, where the wines tend to be rich and richer (and some producers went a bit overboard, perhaps), this is a gorgeously balanced Megas Oenos that is bursting with flavor. Yet, nothing seems out of place. It has a certain crispness in the background, but not too much. It has fine tannic support, but it sneaks up on you. It has wonderful flavor and surprising sex appeal, but it never seems candied. It is a wine you can drink today--and probably 20 years from now, too. It touches all the bases. It is a very fine value."

Domaine Skouras Peloponnese Moscofilero 2016

The Wine Advocate's writeup for this racy white is super-long. Here are the highlights...
92 Wine Advocate
(4/28/2017) "One of the fine bargains in the region, this is in great form so far this year. After the aromatic assault, it shows off subtle, but still remarkable concentration in flavor. Skouras' style never leans to rich and big, so don't misunderstand. Yet, as the fruit dribbles over the palate, nicely supported by the wine's structure and freshness, it seems like the essence of the grape. Then, the power takes over. Some six hours later, this is crisp, focused and intense, with a steely finish. It is all about the structure and the tension, but it is in perfect balance... If you like fresh, crisp, young whites, then this is a beauty... Drink Date 2017 - 2023."

Domaine Skouras Peloponnese Moscofilero 2015

90 Our Score
(5/2016) One of the best vintages yet of this wine! Wine from the Moscofilero grape can be produced in a super flowery/fruity style or in a more neutral, subtle version. This 2015 from skilled grower George Skouras is a bit of both. Highly expressive, it gives fruit and floral aromas of white peach, melon, orange blossoms and exotic spice - all atop a nervy and tangy core. A fantastic pairing with sushi or ramen or perfect by itself on a warm summer day!

Domaine Skouras Nemea Saint George 2013

88+ Our Score
(5/2016) George Skouras, a Burgundy-trained winemaker, is one of the top producers in all of Greece. His ability to craft indigenous Greek grapes into accessible, authentic wines with international appeal has not been missed by Vin Chicago customers and staff. The latest release of his best known red, made from the Saint George grape, is full of juicy red berry notes, coffee and cocoa flavors. It offers a smooth mouthfeel, a tangy, balancing finish and a unique character which we found to be quite charming.
