Title: Score 94 for Samos Anthemis 1999 in Wine Advocate
Date Added: 2009-02-10



Imagine a mountain called “Wine Critique” and then imagine a wine from Samos conquering it and becoming one of the leaders of Greek wine. The sweet Samos Anthemis 1999, obtained a rating of 94/100 from the Wine Advocate, the wine critique forum of the famous wine writer and critic Robert Parker Jr. who is considered to be the wine critic with the greatest influence on the wine lovers of the world. This rating was the second highest rating obtained by a Greek wine and essentially the first for a Greek wine that has already been in the market (the highest-rating wine of this review has not yet been bottled). More specifically, Mark Squires, who is a very close partner of Robert Parker, part of his team and in charge of the Greek Wine Advocate, tasted Greek wines and published the ratings for 170 wines on www.erobertparker.com , the subscription webpage of the bimonthly, also by subscription, publication Wine Advocate. In fact, Mr. Squires made a special reference to Greek sweet wines, which he considers the “secret weapon” of Greek winemaking, highlighting their excellent quality-price ratio which could set them as a great bargain. The importance of the success of the unfortunately sold-out Anthemis 1999 is magnified by the fact that only 19 Greek wines managed to obtain a rating of 90 and higher in the “Wine Advocate”, at least in this initial review of Greek wines (to be continued…). A rating of 90 – let alone anything higher than that – is regarded as the key to opening up not only the vast American market but also other markets influenced by Robert Parker and his team (Canada, U.K., Asia, etc.)
