Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer MEGA SPILEO
Extremely deep intense dark purple red colour. Intense, complex, slightly spicy, gently cedary, sandalwood-tinged, rich, ripe plum nose with hints of smoky autumnal roasted chestnuts. Dry, medium-full bodied, very well structured, dense, ripe, cassis-plum-black-cherry flavours with a lingering, cedary, bright, faintly savoury, harmonious, sandalwood-tinged finish. This outstanding 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was aged for 28 months on fine lees in 90% French and 10% American barrels. It has 15% alcohol, 2 g/L residual sugar and is UNFILTERED (explaining the great mouthfeel and ageability). It was bottled on August 8, 2019 and only 7,374 bottles were produced. Think of a Chateau Gruaud Larose Grand Cru Saint-Julien on steroids. This Greek treasure is sublime in a Riedel Ouverture Double Magnum glass. It will keep for another decade CSPC 539924
