Why do we love it?

Laudia in the dialect of Santorini are the holes where hares nest. Laoudia also is the new minimal production wine by Yiannis Tselepos and Canava Chrissou, from Santorini. We are talking about Assyrtiko of course, but in a completely different dimension!

The grapes come from a single vineyard with very old Assyrtiko vines at the area of Pyrgos, planted in terraces (called pezoules). Harvesting is done only when the grapes have over-ripened and is of course manual. And if we have not already grabbed your attention, now we move to good part. The fermentation and maturing of Laoudia 2017 was done in amphoras, and the wine remained there with the fine lees for 8 months. It was then bottled and left for about another 10 months in order to "rest" and reach your glass as a volcanic eruption (and not as a super nova, as it was when first bottled)! Complexity and balance, as you expect from a real maître of rich and expressive wines. Well, Giannis Tselepos would not be happy with anything less than perfect.

Its extreme condensation which you can cut through with a knife, the electric acidity combined with explosive aromas and buttery, rich body make Laoudia 2017 by Yiannis Tselepos and Canava Chrissou a truly collectible acquisition.

Although white, we suggest you treat it like a red wine. Uncork it an hour earlier and enjoy it cool.

As for its compatibility aging? Laoudia 2017 has an easy 8 to 10 years of greatness ahead of it.

Tastes Like

Gentle lemon color in the glass.

A juicy and complex nose with intense evolutionary mood. Citrus flavors swell the glass from the very first moment, with citron, lemon, bitter orange and grapefruit dominating. Sweet aromas of honey, butter and vanilla are balanced with spicy saffron and ginger hints. Smoky notes of gunpowder and flinstone are blended very nicely with the rest of the aromas, completing the multidimensional character of an absolutely expressive Santorini.

Impressive palate with its sharp acidity being the backbone of the really juicy and rich body. Perfectly balanced buttery texture with high aromatic intensity and lemony sensation. Mouth filling aromas of lime, orange, almond, peach, honeycomb, butter and toast. There is no shortage of petroleum hints, paving the way for the future. The long-lasting sweet citrus aftertaste stays on the palate for long.
