Thymiopoulos Xinomavro 'Jeunes Vignes' 2019 (magnum)
- 2 in stock
Apostolos Thymiopoulos is Greece's greatest red winemaker, a master of the Xinomavro grape variety. Jeunes Vignes is his entry level wine, and surely one of the wine world's greatest bargains.
A blend of various parcels of young(er) vine Xinomavro, Jeunes Vignes is feremented in stainless steel and aged in concrete vats for eight months. When we first started selling it, the wine was simple, juicy and light (but always delicious). With each subsequent vintage it has become increasingly complex. It's still a joy to drink, but there is remarkable depth there, with fine, silky tannins, gorgeous fruit and great freshness all coming together in a wine of perfect balance. For the price, it is extraordinary.
...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, 02/02/2019
