Update: 2005 Nemea Grande Cuvée Domaine Skouras, Peleponese

IMG_0875

After having been a bit intrigued by the last bottle of this wine I decided to give it another shot. I popped and poured it without decanting or delay, turned it a bit in a big glass and took a big sniff. There it is suddenly, clean cherry fruit, some sublte spice from the barrel. Fruit is also there on the palate, cherries, red and black berries, currant some liquorice. Tannins are fine-grained but unfortunately slightly drying out on the back-palate… Finish is rather short to medium with the impression of drying out tannins lingering on. There is a big contrast in this wine between a fruity front palate and a somehow blunt back of palate. So in the end the wine didn’t change much since the last time. It isn’t bad, actually quite a solid wine, but it shows flaws such as dry tannins and a slightly sour acidity. I guess I had too high expectations for this “Grande Cuvée”. But it is for sure good company for food. 83
