Why do we love it?

Assyrtiko Maison Viticole 2019 Domaine Ligas is an epic orange, natural Greek wine from the maîtres of this style, Ligas family. On top of that, 2019 is considered to be its best vintage! Specifically, many oenologists and wine critics mentioned that 2019 was the best year of the decade. The perfect fruit in the hands of the best means that the Assyrtiko Maison Viticole 2018 Domaine Ligas is already collectible!

Thomas Ligas was one of the pioneers who brought the philosophy of biodynamic cultivation in Macedonia. With his children, Jason and Melisanthi, by his side they took things one step further. Their philosophy is summarized in the following: permaculture*, no interventions in wine, no sulfites, or commercial yeasts.

Assyrtiko Maison Viticole 2019 Domaine Ligas is an Assyrtiko that ferments with skin contact and indigenous yeast in stainless steel tanks, while 50% of the wine matures in used, Selosse Champagne oak barrels for 12 months. It is bottled unfiltered and the result is exuberant and intense. The epitome of orange wine as many might say. Such a diamond could only be bottled in a strictly limited number of bottles that can be found mainly in the wine lists of the world's best restaurants.

If you want to avoid searching it abroad, make yours some of the few bottles that remain in Greece!

*Permaculture takes its name from permanent agriculture and concerns a way of cultivation that ensures sustainability. In simple terms, the cultivation of the vine does not compete with nature but works with her for the purpose of sustainability and viability of the environment.

The ripe citrus fruits are mixed with notes of lotus and quince, while notes of dough and wet stone complete the complex set.
