Russian dry wine received 91 points on the scale of Robert Parker, creator of the Wine Advocate magazine. This is the best rating ever awarded to the products of domestic wine-making by experts of the most prestigious international rating. This was reported in a press release received at the disposal of Izvestia.
The award was awarded to the wine appellation “Valley of Lefkadia” – Lefkadia Reserve 2012. This is a blend of Cabernet Fran, Petit Verdot, Sira, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Redstope, aged 16 months in the new French oak.
“We first sent the wine to the Wine Advocate experts for evaluation,” said Mikhail Nikolaev, managing partner of the Valley of Lefkadia project. – For us, this is a great pride and definitely a new stage and level in the positioning of domestic wine on the world market. It is also very important that, thanks to this assessment, we again represent the “Valley of Lefkadia” appellation to the world – no longer in words, but on the example of real results. ”
Robert Parker is the most influential and most respected international wine expert. Parker’s rating — the world’s most popular wine rating scale — was created in the 1970s. The rating is regularly published on the pages of the specialized magazine Wine Advocate.
