Best of wines 2014

Actually this is not a best of but the wines i enjoyed the most in 2014. The joy a bottle of wine can bring is a matter of many factors like the occasion of a dinner or the group of friends you can share it with. So for now this is the list of the wines that impressed me the most in 2014...

1) 2006 Castelgiocondo (Marchesi de' Frescobaldi) Brunello di Montalcino
This was one of the wines we choose for the new years eve dinner and it was actually the last one i tried for 2014. Silky texture with soft tannins and lots of fruit. Sagniovese at its best! 93/100

2) 2003 Dougos Methistanes red
The wine was part of a dinner i had in Paradiso restaurant and it was sugested to me by the good friend and owner of the restaurant Grigoris Michailos. It was love at first smell, certainly on the top 5 of Greek wines i ever tried. 93/100

3) 2009 Markus Molitor Wehlener Klosterberg Riesling Spätlese
If you hear people talking about minerality in wine and you have no clue what they talk about, you need to try this wine or any other riesling from the mosel river. 92/100

4) 2013 Karipidis Sauvignon blanc fume
I love Sauvignon blanc and this was the wine in enjoyed the most from the variety in 2014 91/100

5) 2006 Lykos Syrah
A nicely made Syrah from this family winery from evoia. Spicy, with back pepper and blackberry conquering nose and mouth.  91/100

6) 2013 grevenon ghi kalyvia 
This rose was a huge surprise for me. It comes from an unknown winery from Grevena and delivers a really nice rose from xinomavro-syrah blend. Food pairing wise, it has this crispy acidity that would be ideal for all the olive oil based Greek dishes or pizza. 87/100

7) 2013 Avantis Estate Charisma Ghis Evia
With our country in the middle of the crisis producers need to find a way to make more value for money wines like this one.  A really nicely made malagousia- trebbiano blend with polished texture and perfectly balanced acidity. 86/100
