Chateau Lafleur-Gazin 2000

位於波爾多波美侯Pomerol村, Chateau Lafleur-Gazin 坐落於兩大名莊 Lafleur 和 Gazin 之間(三個莊同屬一個家族),自1976年起由 Jean- Pierre MOUEIX 家族管理(Trotanoy/La Fleur Petrus/Hosanna 同一釀酒團隊)平均樹齡30年,80%Merlot, 20%Cabernet Franc。

產區:Pomerol, Bordeaux , France

88 pts Wine Advocate:

"A sweet, superficial, but attractive effort, the 2000 La Fleur-Gazin reveals chalky tannin in the finish. A dark ruby/purple color is accompanied by ripe plum, prune, and berry fruit, medium body, and plenty of structure as well as tough tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2014."

94 pts Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, February 2014:

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. Wow - this Saint Estèphe appears to be just getting into its stride. This seems reticent on the nose at first, but modest coaxing reveals scents of blackberry mixed with gravel and incense. The palate is medium-bodied with gentle grip, firm tannins and a pleasant salty tang on the finish. Masculine and structured, with good persistency and a lovely austere personality, Basile Tesseron and his team have overseen an aloof but engaging Lafon-Rochet that could be the dark horse of the appellation. Tasted January 2014.

Chateau Laroze 2012

產區: Saint Emilion, Bordeaux
品種:68% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Franc, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon
木桶陳年: 16個月法國橡木桶,65%新桶。

From Chateau: 

1610, my ancestors the Gurchy family were already winegrowers in Saint- Emilion. In 1882, they founded the family estate of Laroze

Château Laroze is a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé and its 27-hectare (67-acre) vineyard is located at the foot of the hill to the north-west of the medieval village of Saint-Emilion. The vines grow around the Château.

We till the soil, cultivate grass between the rows, drain the plots, add organic supplements and prohibit the use of weed-killers, so that the vines’ roots find it easier to penetrate the soil made of silica and clay.

The quality of this beautifull setting is very favourable for the Cabernet Franc grapes providing us with rich tasty wines that are elegant and more-ish.

85%Merlot,14%Cab及 1%Carmenere, Vivino4.0 (180酒評)

The 2014 is certainly a few notches above the 2012 overall, and that wine is surely superb. Dark ruby in color, with soaring aromas of dark fruits, leather, and hints of forest floor and mushrooms. Incredibly complex already, but with so much more in reserve. Long, silky and elegant on the palate, with layers of delicious fruit (still primary of course but already hard to resist), and a what must be a 10 minutes finish. Tannins are round and well integrated, with no new oak treatment, and once again a respectable 13% alcohol. Great, refreshing acidity and wonderful structure that are the hallmarks of this superb vintage in Bordeaux. A real classic and a must buy!

Chateau Malartic Lagraviere 2006

Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc

92 points Wine Enthusiast:
An evocatively perfumed wine, with aromas of pine, eucalyptus and spice. To taste, it is open, generous, its tannins cushioned inside ripe, jelly black fruits. Everything mingles well, the core of dryness an essential component of the richness of the wine.

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
Proprietor Alexandre Bonnie has produced brilliant white and red wines at this estate's NASA space age-looking winemaking facility. I remember these wines from the early days of The Wine Advocate, and they were undrinkable swill. That is certainly not the case today. This is classic Pessac-Leognan with leafy tobacco, smoky red and black currant, forest floor, cedar, and graphite notes. It is a medium-bodied wine of impeccable purity, texture, and balance.

Chateau Marquis de Terme 2009 

波爾多四級莊 

94 points James Suckling (July 2012):

Bright, full ruby-red. Sexy, syrah-like aromas of blackberry, violet, smoke, game and underbrush. Densely packed and fine-grained, with lovely inner-mouth floral lift to its crushed berry flavors. A very rich and sweet style of Margaux, but the broad, dusty, building tannins call for some cellaring. Boasts excellent length for a wine from this chateau.

93 points Decanter (July 2012):

Sumptuous cassis and blackberry nose, with a good deal of new oak. Sleek, elegant, poised, with great intensity and purity of fruit. There's spice and vigour on the mid-palate, but it's taut, tightly wound, and not very expressive now. The firm tannins contribute to a very long, chewy finish. Evidently needs time. 

90 points Wine Spectator :

A bright, ripe style, with very fresh crushed plum, raspberry and blackberry fruit wrapped in silky tannins and laced with hints of anise and black tea. The rounded finish has modest grip for mid-term cellaring. Drink now through 2020.

Chateau Monbousquet 2003

93 pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Aug 2014):

From a mixture of sand, gravel, and clay soils, this unheralded terroir produces wines well-above its pedigree thanks to the extraordinary efforts of proprietors Chantal and Gerard Perse. The wines are given a 4- to 5-week maceration in both stainless steel and oak, and are aged sur-lie in new oak. The dark ruby/purple-colored 2003 offers up notes of smoky meats, melted licorice, jammy black cherries, spice box, earth, and cedar. This plump, fleshy, sexy, unfined, unfiltered wine represents a classic blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Chateau MontPerat葡萄酒是《神之水滴》漫畫中第一支成名的酒款。 《神之水滴》描述如下:這瓶酒好好喝,我不知不覺很喜歡它呢。因為它很有勁道,所以感覺到融在口中的甜味與緊繃的酸味在嘴裡整個散開。那感覺就像“Queen”樂隊的主唱甜美沙啞的聲音,被渾厚的吉他與沈重的鼓聲所包圍.

Chateau Moulin Riche 2012
產區 : Saint Julien, Bordeaux
分級:波爾多列級二級莊副牌
品種 : 69% Cab Sau, 20% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc 

Owned and managed by the team at Léoville Poyferré, Moulin Riche always offers excellent value for money and seems likely to do so again in this vintage. Immediately fresh and vibrant, this is a very pure style. With dark berry fruit, some smoky character and crushed stone structure to the tannins and a vein of acidity that gives this an almost-linear tautness, this is quite a grown-up wine in this vintage.

95 points James Suckling :

Wonderful aromas of currants and blackberries with hints of spices. Full body, with fabulous tannins and a long and creamy texture to the finish. I love the depth of fruit to this. Best ever from here. Great value for the vintage.

93 points Wine Enthusiast:

Although this wine has tannins, it’s the fruit that shines, with its delicious black-currant flavor and acidity. It is more fine and elegant than it is powerful, a pleasant surprise from Saint-Estèphe in this vintage For medium-term aging.

91 points Wine Spectator:

Dark and winey, with good damson plum, black currant and mulled spice notes pushed by a tangy iron note and flecks of savory and chalk on the finish. The judicious toast lets the pure fruit drive along. Best from 2015 through 2025. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Chateau Pavie Macquin 2013 

品種: 80% merlot, 20% cabernet franc

93 points Wine Enthusiast:

This is a bold, ripe, fruity wine, perfumed with fruit that's already attractive. The tannins are dry, but balanced with the fruit. A good choice for medium-term aging.

93 points James Suckling:

This is structured and strong for a 2013 with white truffle and bright blueberry character. Full-bodied with firm and silky tannins. Bright finish. Better in 2020. 

92 points Wine Spectator:

This has a showy personality, with beautifully aromatic raspberry, blueberry and plum flavors that drape wonderfully over the velvety structure. Alluring black tea and warm plum cake notes add nuance on the finish. This has gained steadily since the barrel tasting. Drink now through 2023. 3,100 cases made.

Château Pavie Macquin is one of the most improved Saint-Emilion wines of the last 20 years.  Over that time frame, and especially since the turn of the new century, it has also become one of the most refined wines of Saint-Emilion.  This simple truth was recognized in September of 2006, when Pavie Macquin was promoted to the prestigious level of Premier Grand Cru Classé in the reclassification of Saint Emilion's chateaus.

Chateau Phelan Segur 2007

產區 : Saint Estephe, Bordeaux

分級:波爾多中級莊

品種 : 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot

評分: Jancis Robinson MW 16/20 , JancisRobinson.com, October 2009

Lightish crimson. Not quite pure on the nose. But smooth and silky and rather unusual for a 2007. Was it heavily fined? It does easy duty as an early-drinking 2007 anyway even if it does not speak very strongly of St-Estèphe.

86 points WINE SPECTATOR: A medium-bodied red, with spice and berry character, slightly chewy tannins and a medium finish. A little lean now, but should soften and fill out with some bottle age. Best after 2011. 16,665 cases made. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2010

Chateau Poujeaux 2007

產區 : Moulis, Bordeaux 

品種 : Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc

Château Poujeaux is a leading Cru Bourgeois property that consistently produces wines of Grand Cru Classé quality. Now under the administration of new owner Philippe Cuvelier (owner of Clos Fourtet), Poujeaux has dramatically improved the quality.

90 Points Decanter : This is a rather lovely Médoc, if a touch more restrained that some others here. There is richness to the fruit, but it is tighter, with layers of bilberry and cassis and cedary oak, with attractive menthol notes on the finish. Ready to drink.

產區:Margaux, Bordeaux

品種:75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdo

91 Points The Wine Advocate - "A masculine-styled, dense purple-colored 2009, this cuvee offers up scents of charcoal, asphalt, black currants, incense, and crushed rocks. This deep, medium to full-bodied, well-made Margaux is broader, richer, and more substantial than usual, with more alcohol as well as substance. The tannins are ripe and well-integrated. This is a 30-year wine. 

91 Points Wine Enthusiast - "Soft and ripe wine that shows the richness of the year while offering a core of tannins. It is immediately attractive, although the structure and final tannins do promise aging potential."

Chateau Rieussec 2005 (375ml)半支裝

96 pts Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (219), June 2015:

Tasted blind against the Rieussec 2001 as a comparison, the Château Rieussec 2005 has a more airy bouquet at first and here I find more mineralité on the nose, more precision and focus that the Rieussec 2001. The palate is clean and fresh with vibrant acidity, real tension here with marmalade, lemon curd, apricot and cold stone. Wonderful acidity is interwoven throughout this Sauternes that demonstrates real race and sophistication. It is not as rich or as hedonistic as the Rieussec 2001, but I think the slightly better wine. More breeding and energy. Do not overlook this gem. Drink 2015-2045.

Chateau Rouget 2005

Region: Pomerol, Bordeaux, France

92 pts Wine Spectator:

There's beautiful aromas of violet and other flowers, with fruity undertones. Full-bodied, with round, polished tannins that caress the palate. Long and very balanced. Harmonious. Best after 2012. 2,915 cases made.

90 pts Wine Advocate:

The Burgundy firm of Jacques Prieur, who now owns this Pomerol estate, has fashioned an outstanding 2005 from one of the less prestigious terroirs of the appellation. It is a richly fruit, exuberant, flamboyant wine offering a sensual display of black cherries, sandy, loamy soil, subtle herbs, and spice. Lusciously textured with no astringency, it can be consumed now and over the next 10-12 years.

HK$:

HK$280HK$250

產區 : Haut Medoc 品種 : 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc ST88: Bright red-ruby. Reticent nose hints at currant, licorice, mint and fresh herbs. Supple, sweet and spicy, with moderate ripeness and complexity. Not bad but could use more flesh and depth. Finishes with firm, slightly dry tannins. The percentage of new oak will probably be 95% rather than the usual 100%, said Faure, as the use of some used barrels toward the end of elevage will probably bring more freshness.

HK$660

Chateau Talbot 1994

波爾多四級莊

This imposing estate owes its name to Connetable Talbot, the English general and governor of the province of Guyenne who was defeated at the famous Battle of Castillon in 1453.

Talbot's vines grow in an ideal location bordering an estuary, on some of the region's most highly prized gravel rises which alone produce great wine. Talbot is one of the oldest estates in the Medoc, and its reputation has been in the hands of experienced managers, and always shown itself to be worthy of its inclusion in the 1855 classification.

Owners of Talbot since the early 20th century, the Cordier family have perpetuation the commitment to quality of their predecessors. At Talbot, wine is very much past, present, and future. Therefore, tradition and technical innovations both count a great deal.

品種:90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc
木桶陳年: 17個月法國橡木桶,70%新桶。

91 Points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (181), February 2009:

blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, it is a surprisingly opulent, flamboyant, fleshy, soft crowd-pleaser displaying abundant amounts of smoked herbs, sweet black cherry and cassis fruit, licorice, espresso roast, chocolate, and toast. Full-bodied with superb concentration as well as a beautifully textured mouthfeel, this 2006 should drink well for 10-15+ years. Like all of the Neipperg estates, this wine's capsule has a clever anti-fraud device, which I think will be increasingly employed by many French estates.This nearly 30-acre estate, which was purchased several years ago by Stephan von Neipperg (owner of Canon La Gaffeliere and La Mondotte), performed exceptionally well in 2006.

91 Points Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar, May 2009:

Full ruby-red. Inky blackberry, black cherry, licorice and minerals on the nose. Sweet and densely packed, with a lush texture but also good enlivening minerality to the blueberry and dark chocolate flavors. Seamless and vinous Saint-Emilion, finishing with very suave tannins and noteworthy length and energy. An outperformer in 2006.

91 Points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (205), February 2013:

One of the bigger, more tannic and powerful wines of the vintage, although it is only 14.4% alcohol, which puts it well below some of the blockbusters in the Cotes de Castillon, this wine exhibits wonderfully pure black raspberry, black cherry and graphite notes intermixed with hints of cedar and licorice, in a medium to full-bodied, slightly softer and less extracted style than usual. This is another sleeper of the vintage that should drink nicely for up to a decade.

92 Points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, June 2013:

Wonderful nose of blueberries and clay with dark berries. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and a very refined and tight tannin structure. Love the quality. Long finish.

92 Points Jeff Leve, The Wine Cellar Insider, March 2013:

Licorice, truffle, jammy dark berries and chocolate open to a plush, polished, rich wine of pleasure. This will drink well young.

Clos du Marquis 2006 雄獅副牌

92-94 pts James Suckling, WineSpectator.com, March 2007

Wonderful aromas of blackberries, minerals and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with a lovely core of cool fruit. Racy and caressing tannins. Excellent. 13.2 percent Cabernet Franc--more than normal. Better structured than normal, too.

92 pts Wine Spectator:

Offers violet and blackberry on the nose, with tar. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a fruity, minerally aftertaste. Long and silky. Very serious for the vintage. Best after 2013.

91 pts Wine Enthusiast :

A beautifully perfumed, dark-colored wine, bursting with black plums and violet perfumes. It is, on the surface, delicious, but taste beneath that and it becomes complex and dark, with immense but velvet tannins, suggesting considerable potential.

89+ pts Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, May 2016:

The 2006 Clos du Marquis has a typical bouquet for this cru with forward and lavish black cherries, cassis and incense aromas, perhaps more oaky than some of its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with an insistent grip in the mouth. This is surprisingly backward with impressive density. You can feel the weight of black fruit in the mouth, although it needs more finesse and precision on the finish. Give this another five years and you could have a "dark horse" on your hands.

The Clos René, located in the Pomerol appellation, has belonged to the Garde family for more than a century. Jean-Marie Garde currently runs this 18-hectare vineyard planted with 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Malbec. The domain is largely under-valued, considering the quality and regularity of its cuvées. The wines of Clos René are well made, in a classical and elegant style and with a wonderful aging ability, while being reasonable priced.

La Mission Haut Brion的實力非凡,早在Dillon家族買下之前,1961/1975/1982就是WA100分,之後的1989/2000/2009也仍持續100分佳績,這是她的副牌 名為La Chapelle de la Mission,自1991年生產,用的園中年輕的葡萄藤。值得一提的是,自2005年起,Dillon家族的另一產業Ch. La Tour Haut-Brion也全部用來生產La Chapelle de la Mission。Ch. La Tour Haut-Brion的紅酒,位列Graves 1959年分級的13間列級酒莊之一,以前每年僅有2000-2500箱,2004是最後一個年份,現在已全部混入La Chapelle de la Mission。將列級酒莊的酒全數釀造副牌十分罕見,但Dillon家族同時擁有Ch. Haut Brion與Ch. La Mission Haut Brion兩顆巨星,這是極大的本錢。

年產只有4000箱, 45% Merlot,  31% Cabernet Franc,  24% Cabernet Sauvignon

91+ pts Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, (Feb 2017)

Today, the 2014 La Chapelle de La Mission Haut-Brion is powerful, structured and also a touch compact, with a bit less apparent breadth than it showed from barrel. Smoke, tobacco, licorice, cedar, French oak and dark stone fruit notes struggle to fully emerge. Today the tannins are especially forbidding. There is good energy and tension in the glass. Perhaps it is the high % of Cabernet Franc that is shutting the wine down. The 2014 is very pretty, but it is not an especially forthcoming second wine. Even so, the bright floral and red-fruit-toned notes make me think it will drink nicely for a number of years.

Another strong effort is their wine made from young vines, the sexy, soft, lush, even opulent, dark ruby-colored La Gravette de Certan. This is a richly fruity wine, but also complex and evolved.

The plum and blueberry character and hints of cocoa are really impressive. Medium to full body and firm and silky tannins. Integrated and so fine. A beautiful thing. Drink now or hold. Second wine of Vieux Château Certan.

91 points Wine Spectator (2017):

Lovely, with a stream of raspberry confiture flowing through, while light mint, star anise and black tea notes weave in and out. The long and refined finish has a light mineral accent, while the fruit sails on. This is quietly one of the best second wines in Bordeaux. Best from 2018 through 2026.
