La Tour Melas Cyrus One 2017

la tour melas cyrus one - wimbledon wine cellar

When we first tasted Cyrus One, six vintages ago, we know that we were onto something. This sensational Bordeaux lookalike continues to sell out at the estate and in the UK each year. It's no surprise really, as the owner is just so passionate about top flight Bordeaux, he can't help himself in producing succulent, juicy cabernet franc and merlot that resemble his favourite wine whilst living in the UK and France before he returned to Greece....

As you draw the cork, there is an instant burst of ripe cherry fruit that is balanced and kept in check by a tasteful use of new and 2 year old oak. This is not a flashy wine but a beautifully balanced masterpiece of fine winemaking in a search of finesse in the small hamlet of Achinos, two hours north of Athens. He is constantly reviewed as one of the country's finest producers of red wine.

The 2017 is dreamy and great to enjoy now with pasta, lamb, cheese or simply on it's own. It's rare to find a wine as fine as this at this price..especially in Bordeaux. In his native Greece, he has produced a stylish, moreish wine that does not stay in the glass long after it's been poured...it's just too good for words.

Ready for immediate delivery.
