Buy Boutari Grande Reserve Naoussa
Wine Advocate 89 points - The 2007 Grande Reserve, that is Xinomavro, is a small production wine (300 cases) with a fair lifespan ahead of it and a good price point. Unlike some of the hard edged Xinomavros, this has a little of the refinement that I’ve seen in Boutari’s (supposedly) lower level regular Naoussa bottling. Light in color, it is bright and elegant in the mid-palate, but don’t mistake its initial friendly handshake with reality - there is quite a tannic kick on this and it is not really ready to drink. The oak is well integrated, with none of that “drenched in vanilla” aspect, but on the other hand, there is a slightly odd nuance in the background, a bit of a high toned hint, perhaps, that was not to the wine’s advantage. Drink now-2025. (Apr 2012)
