Anybody who knows anything about Xinomavro, Greece's best red grape, knows it makes big, tannic red wines which age for decades. In which case Apostolos Thymiopoulos is some sort of Xinomavro magician, making wines like no other. Jeunes Vignes is a fresh, light, immediately drinkable red with a lovely wild strawberry flavour.

...the unoaked young-vine red is the bargain ... What I like about this wine is its beguiling (but not simple) raspberry fruit on the nose and front palate and then the way it finishes with a slightly astringent note of cinders. It's not unlike Nebbiolo in build. Jancis Robinson MW
