Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2013 Robola is the unoaked version here, just bottled in December 2013. As time goes on, I become more impressed with the consistent excellence with this bottling from Gentilini. Admittedly very young (it was tasted in mid-March), this was quite tense on the lingering finish as it warmed. Nuanced with a touch of dried peach, a bit of pear and melon rind, it displays concentration, flavor and focus. As it warmed, it improved and evolved, demonstrating again why I think this winery has helped to convince people that there should be more Robola in the world. This will not impress with sweetness, ripe fruit, power or weight. It is simply unaffected and unadorned, with fresh, tank-aged purity laced with flavor on the finish. As impressive as it was on first tastes, it showed notably better the next day, even more vibrant and lively. It should hold decently for several years, might go longer, and might even improve with a year or so of cellaring. It is still nice to drink these fresh and young, however, so don?t hesitate to drink it this summer. At the price point, this is one of the nicest bargains in new-release Greek whites this issue. Drink now-2018 (Apr 2014)

Wine maker notes
Mavrodaphne grapes are bought from a single, high-altitude vineyard. Vinification and bottling is completed at the Gentilini winery. Fermented in steel vats and aged for 12 months in French oak casks. Dark red wine with layers of red fruit, spice, licorice and wild mint. On the palate, it is rich and complex with soft, round tannins and a long finish.

Producer
Our Domaine is located in Vergisson, a picturesque village perched up high in the hills at the heart of the historic Solutre and Vergisson site, in southern Burgundy. The vineyards stretch over 6 hectares in two appellations: Pouilly Fuisse and Saint-Veran. Our artisanal approach to viticulture allows us to use ecological and natural methods of cultivation. Working the soil is an integral part of our labour, manual work is valued and the harvest is carried out by hand. Our painstaking work, from cultivation in the vineyards to aging in the cellars, results in pure, rich wines of character, reflecting the terroirs of Vergisson. The Domaine produces four wines from Pouilly-Fuisse and one from Saint-Veran.
