Papagiannakos Vieilles Vignes Savatiano 2016
The 2016 Savatiano Old Vines is unoaked and comes in at 12.7% alcohol. Sourced from 60-year-old vines in the Attica area, this is very pretty this year, an impressive follow-up to last year's. This seems to lean a bit more to structure, granting that I do not have them side by side. Perhaps this is just a bit closed. In its youth, this shows fine concentration, finishing with a crisp, dry edge. With air and warmth, it becomes a little fruitier, but this always remains mouthwatering, the juicy and rather long finish always gripping. Focused and precise, this tightly wound white should be able to hold a few years without problem, perhaps longer than anticipated, but don't hesitate to drink it young. If you like them crisp, dry and fresh, this is for you. Drink Date: 2017-2021. Score - 90. (Mark Squires,, Dec. 29, 2017)
