We think

Chryseia is a truly world class wine and has the awards to prove it. The wine is a product of an ongoing partnership between producers in Bordeaux and the Douro and the results are amazing. An absolute delight.

Experts say

Silver at Decanter Awards 2015 – “An incredibly complex and elegant nose sporting floral, earthy, spice, tobacco, herb, cocoa and dark chocolate characters. A very impressive and concentrated wine with polished tannins and a lovely savoury texture that will evolve further with time.”

Silver at IWSC 2015

95 Points at Decanter Magazine – “Lovely, ripe dark berries with black pepper, bacon, violets and powerful tannins. Quite savoury and forceful in style with a rustic, complex finish.”

95 Points at Wine Enthusiast – “This smooth, structured wine has many of the characteristics of Bordeaux with its new wood and elegant texture. Acidity, black fruits and tannins are developing well.”

92 Points at Wine Spectator – “Pure and fresh-tasting, with good cut to the dark plum, blackberry pie and hot stone flavors, full of mincemeat and mineral notes. The luscious finish oozes chocolate mousse and raspberry ganache accents.”

91 Points at Robert Parker – ” It is not the biggest, deepest or most powerful Chryseia, but it is one of the most charming.”
