Discovering the wine region of Peloponnesos

The Peloponnese Peninsula (Peloponnesus) is a large landform on the southern edge of continental Greece. Covered in mountains, rugged plateaus and valleys, the area has an abundance of mesoClimates and terroirs suitable for premium viticulture. Native Grape varieties such as Agiorgitiko, Moschofilero and Mavrodaphne are planted throughout the peninsula. They produce everything from fresh, minerally white wines to Rich, ageworthy reds.

The modern Peloponnese wine industry began to grow following the end of World War II, and today the region is one of the most viticulturally productive in Greece. Along with the seven PDO-level appellations, there are 17 regional appellations scattered across the whole area, including Tegea, Arcadia, Corinth and the Slopes of Petroto. A wide range of Greek and international grape varieties are covered by these appellations. They include Assyrtico, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Refosco and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The peninsula (technically an island after the opening of the Corinth Canal in 1893) is the meeting place of the Aegean, Ionian and Mediterranean seas. Measuring some 21,500 square kilometers (8300 square miles), the land covers an area slightly smaller than the US state of New Jersey. Several mountain ranges traverse the Peloponnese, and it is here that most of the peninsula's viticulture takes place. Two of the most highly respected Protected Designation of Origin appellations in Greece – Nemea and Mantinia – are located on the eastern side of the Peloponnese.

Côte-Rôtie & Condrieu 2020: report and top-scoring wines

Tasting the 2020 Côte-Rôties reminded me of the 2016s – while some are on the light side, the wines are ripe with a fine tannic frame. They are noticeably more slender and less potent than the previous few vintages and will drink well straight away. Scroll down for tasting notes and scores for the Côte-Rôtie & Condrieu 2020 top-scoring wines {"content":"PHA+U3TDqXBoYW5lIE9naWVyIGJlbGlldmVzIHRoZSBjb29sIG5pZ2h0cyB3ZXJlIGFuIGltcG9ydGFudCBmYWN0b3IgaW4gdGhlIGZyZXNoZXIgc3R5bGUgb2Ygd ...

Andrew Jefford: ‘A wine’s visual cues shout, stamp, whistle and roar’

Disconcerting: I couldn’t forget this bottle for days afterwards. Still can’t. Back in August, wine critic Lin Liu MW (together with her partner Philippe Lejeune of Château de Chambert in Cahors) came to dinner, en route to a short holiday in Provence. One of the bottles Lin brought for us to try together was the 2018 Les Rocheuses, Parcelles No 5 et 6, from Château Le Rey in Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux. It came in a slope-shouldered bottle, not a classic Bordeaux bottle. We tried it with some R ...

Walls: Tasting Hermitage 2001 20 years on

In 2001, George W. Bush was sworn in as the 43rd President of the United States. Meanwhile in the UK, Tony Blair led the Labour Party to its second landslide victory. A lot can change over the course of 20 years. According to many Rhône winemakers and wine collectors, this is how long a bottle of Hermitage should lay undisturbed until you open it. Is it really worth the wait? I recently tasted 11 Hermitage 2001s – seven red, two white, two sweet – to test the 20 year hypothesis and see how these ...
