From the Critics:

  • "The 2004 Chryseia seems brighter and more pointed than its 2003 counterpart, not quite as sweet, a little earthier. There are some similarities, such as refined tannins, lovely and persistent flavors and a suave, modern feel. The 2003 is far more attractive at the moment, and seems riper and sweeter, but the 2004 will likely overtake it. To me, it adds some of the complexity missing from the 2003, even if it is slightly less seductive. Ultimately, it may come down to your style preferences. I hope to retaste them side-by-side over the years. Both wines drank very well the next day and opened up beautifully, proving that they are not just about tasty fruit. This held easily for both tasting purposes and longer, despite having been open for a day, a good sign. This is primarily Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca, with Tinta Roriz and Tinta Cao blended in, raised in new French oak. Proportions of each varietal used are expected to vary from year-to-year. There were 3,000 cases produced. Fruit is sourced from various Quintas of note, including Perdiz and Bomfim. Drink 2008-2016. This is one of the famous and increasingly successful partnerships in Portugal with foreign wine interests. Here, the Symingtons, owners of Dow's and Graham's ports, among others, pair up with Bruno Prats of Cos d'Estournel fame. Chryseia is a relatively new project, the first experimental lots having been made only in 1999. 'Chryseia' is the Greek translation of 'Douro,' literally meaning 'of gold.' In many respects, you can call this lineup from Prats & Symington one of the more modern faces of the Douro. No one will call these wines 'rustic.'" - 93 Pts Mark Squires - The Wine Advocate
