Voskehat Aligoté Areni Noir

2019 vintage. A new wine from the historical Maran winery (I believe 2018 was the first vintage, but not sure). A blend of local grapes Voskehat and Areni Noir (vinified as a white for this original wine), and Aligoté from the Ararat Valley. Impressive in every respect. Mineral, aromatic, concentrated, profound, perfectly balanced and long. Powerful and elegant at the same time, reminds me of white Hermitage. Abv. 14%. — 6 months ago

Khndoghni Areni Noir Malbec

2018 vintage from the new Malahi range of the historical Maran winery. This is a blend from 3 grapes, each from different zones. 50 % Areni Noir (this grape used to be called "Black Mahani" up to 1947, hence the name) from Vayots Dzor, 25% Khndoghni from Artsakh (aka Nagorno-Karabakh), and 25% fruit from young Malbec vines from the Ararat Valley. 6 months in used oak. Deep dark colour. Blackberry fruit and spices in nose and mouth. Nice balance and fine-grained tannic structure. A very good wine, but still I would love to see a high end 100% Areni from this estate, as I believe this wine is a bit too internationally styled to compete with European wines in the same price range (about 24 euros). — 6 months ago

Yeraz Areni Noir

2012 vintage, the first ever produced and it's spectacular. Areni grapes, from prephyloxera bush vines at extremely high altitude (1600 meters) with enormous diurnal temperature swings. For me Areni Noir feels like a hypothetical blend of Sangiovese and Pinot Noir, and this shows perfectly what this unique ancient grape variety is capable of. Impressive nose reminiscent of a great Brunello. Complex taste with ripe pomegranate fruit, red cherries, subtle spices and Chambolle-Musigny-like velvety tannins, with a lingering aftertaste. — 6 months ago

Hin Areni Vineyards

Voskehat White Blend 2016


Lovely white wine from #armenia #oakfermented medium yellow color, intense aromas of perfumed jazmin and vainilla candle with candle wax and beeswax. On the palate it’s waxy and almost off dry, the fruit is rich and ripe. Acidity is medium and alcohol is medium 13.5%. The finish is long. Reminds me of a Viognier. — 2 months ago

Maison Maran

Réserve Noravank Areni Noir 2018

2018 vintage. Historical producer tracing back to the beginning of the 19th century. 100% Areni Noir from the Vayots Dzor region from 40 years old vines at 1300 - 1400 m. Calcareous and volcanic soils. Aged 6 months in used Armenian oak barrels. A very good introduction to the wonderful Areni Noir grape. Brilliant transparent ruby. Attractive nose with pomegranate, red cherries, flowers and a hint of vanilla. Elegant taste with bright red fruit, fresh acidity and a nice ripe tannic bite. Amazing value at about 13 euro. Abv. 14%, but hardly noticed. — 6 months ago
