Why do we love it?

Just some time ago, it got the highest distinction for a Greek wine ever, from one of the most prestigious wine media worldwide. It keeps appearing in the press with amazing descriptions and medals keep coming its way.

What can we say about Methyse 2004 by Domaine Foivos or about its producer, the idealist and low key Theodore Orkopoulos. He prefers to let Methyse do the talking.

It is produced only once each decade and only on truly excellent vintages. The grapes come from the domaine’s oldest vines, more than 70 years old at the time. The berries are sundried for a few days, shrinking and getting rid of all excise water, causing amazing sugar concentration in the juice. It remains in oak barrels for 6 months and then rests in the bottle since.

Full of complexity and strength, it showcases amazing acidity that balances out the sweet feeling, refreshing the palate and making you anticipate the next sip.

Enjoy it slightly chilled. Allow it to stay in the glass; don’t rush it because you will miss its better half. Intense from the start, you will be overwhelmed by its evolving in the glass, just after a few minutes. If there is some left in the bottle, try it again next day. It will surprise you!

Nowdays it is only available only for visitors at the winery as there are only just a few bottles left. We managed to source some of the last ones. Can you take this much intensity?

Tastes Like

Dark brown color with brick red hues, indicative of its age.

Moderate initially on the nose, it opens up its impressive bouquet as time passes. Cherry, raspberry, fig and plum dipped in caramel and bitter chocolate dominate. Rich coffee flavors, nuts and honeycomb make their appearance as it evolves in the glass. Spicy hints of red pepper and cinnamon complement the uniquely enjoyable and complex bouquet.

Full bodied mouth, explosive, with red fruits flooding the palate. Cherry and dried plum are in the lead, followed by a strong sense of coffee. The impressive acidity offsets the sweetness perfectly, resulting in unexpected freshness in the mouth. The subtle velvety tannins support the spicy character which remains on the palate along with fruit and chocolate in the very long aftertaste.
