La Tour Melas Estate 2011

(92)

A fantastic Greek Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot made as a bet to compete with Lafleur. Achieved actually to beat Lafleur in a blind tasting in Athens last year for the 2011 vintage. Balanced with ripe, smooth tannins, dancing with grace between elegance and concentration this is great example of what can be achieved with superb work in the vineyard.
