In nature, as in wine seasons, the return to the source has always something of positive emotions and vital satisfaction.

Take the story behind the return of bottles of Commandaria 1845 from Paris, beyond the possibility of tracing back heritage, one does observe the result of fruitful of encounters; satisfaction produced at a personal level and which institutions sometimes make their own.

Couldn’t we just forget Paris? And return to the realities of our normal productive lives? We can’t, because of these virtuous circles without end.

 

“ Our life is an apprenticeship to the truth, that around every circle another can be drawn; that there is no end in nature, but every end is a beginning; that there is always another dawn risen on...

Wines in Cyprus: A taste of things to come

Wines in Cyprus: A taste of things to come | Cyprus Wine | Scoop.it

The wines that endure prolonged spells of hot dry weather and are thin skinned so they produce a refreshing light-bodied red and white made from the xinisteri grape that is fruity and refreshing, but the local maratheftiko grapes are proving a rather capricious variety. "These wines are unique to Cyprus but uniqueness itself is not enough here. There has to be quality too"

The Red Kolios Wine status that awaited the Kleftiko

The Red Kolios Wine status that awaited the Kleftiko | Cyprus Wine | Scoop.it

Status 99, a full-bodied red wine, not exactly the ideal choice for fish, we should have had white wine, but we did not know there was no kleftico when we ordered. Fish needs a lighter wine.

A full-bodied red like Status 99 ideal for a heavy meat dish like kleftico.

The Wine of My life - 1845 wine from Cyprus - Les carnets de François Audouze

By insistance of writing about the wine of Cyprus from 1845, being the wine of my life, it had to one day get to the ears of the Embassy of Cyprus. A counselor of the Embassy contacted me and would be happy that Cyprus can buy an empty bottle of Cyprus in 1845, for it to be exposed in a museum.

 

A force d'écrire que le vin de Chypre de 1845 est le plus grand vin de ma vie, ça devait remonter un jour jusqu'aux oreilles de l'Ambassade de Chypre. Un conseiller de l'Ambassade me contacte et serait heureux que Chypre puisse acquérir une bouteille vide de Chypre 1845, pour qu'elle figure dans un musée.

 

François Audouze Recently met with Ambassador Marios Lyssiotis and set to celebrate this historic re-encounter.

Indigenous @Maratheftiko seduces with Keo Heritage

Indigenous @Maratheftiko seduces with Keo Heritage | Cyprus Wine | Scoop.it

A world of aromas. Full of ripe plum as well as mint, tobacco, moccha, hint of blackcurrant leaf, chocolate, dark spices, ink and green pepper. However after longer decanting the aforementioned notes are mixed with pepper, blueberry and leather.

 

Laid-Back Sommelier has good friends worthy to have brought the Keo Heritage bottle from Cyprus to show the capability of local wine making.

The Heritage 2008 is an interesting wine, the 2008's palate is soft, round and almost silky and with nice acidity. Full-bodied with a grip on the mid-palate however with a slightly bitter and short finish. Aged for 3 years in French oak from Limousin, the wine's tannins are nicely integated at the age of 4 years (tasted in July 2012).
