Livia ‘18, Sous le Vegetal, Greece


An esoteric project highlighting winemaking techniques & the terroir of Samos, the most Westerly of the Greek islands. The Livia represents the 1st in the Sous le Vegetal trilogy, here on The Grape Slayer, by legendary natty heads Patrick Bouju & Jason Ligas…supported by Clovis Ochin. From a tiny plot on the side of mount Karvounis, grape juice is pressed then racked before vinifification in 500lt fûts and 5,000lt stainless steel tanks. This stunning dry white reflects the salinity of schist and the freshness of quartz. The iodised aromas of Muscat (a typically aromatic varietal smacking of lychee, marmalade & hay) are elegant, avoiding any cloying traits of the grape. A long and ample wine prolonged by a greedy, wide finish…the mouthful that keeps on giving. Decanting recommended- nothing fancy needed, just knock some air into her. She needs a breath after her confinement for optimum sipping…
