Roc de Cambes, Cotes du Bourg 2012

93 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Jan 2016):

A dark, imposing wine, the 2012 Roc des Cambes is distinctly dark and brooding. Black cherries, smoke, licorice, tar and dark spices fleshed [?]. Vertical in style and quite structured, the 2012 could use another few years in bottle to fully come together, which will also help the chewy tannins to integrate a bit more fully. Roc des Cambes is 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec that spend 18 months in 100% new French oak. 

93 points Tim Atkin MW, timatkin.com, April 2013:

One of the superstar châteaux of the Bordeaux Côtes, François Mitjavile's red is always a wine with plenty of texture and concentration, not to mention alcohol in 2012. This is intense, aromatic and plush, with raspberry aromas, a hint of leafy complexity, a rich, complex texture and firmish tannins. Drink: 2020-28

90-92 points Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, May 2013:

Interesting comparing the Roc des Cambes with the Tertre-Roteboeuf, for here there is a little more drive and intensity on the nose, more volume emanating from the glass with pomegranate and cranberry scents intermingling with fresh gravel notes. The palate is soft and sensual on the entry with layers of fleshy red berry fruit. The tannins have a Burgundy-like finesse and there is a lovely touch of Schezhuan pepper numbing the tip of the tongue on the finish. This will be a fascinating Roc des Cambes.

Nuits St Georges, Domaine Arnoux Lachaux 2014

88-90 points Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (61), January 2016:

This is also quite aromatically expressive with its earthy array of various red berries, floral and lightly sauvage scents. There is more mid-palate concentration and power to the medium-bodied flavors that also possess an attractive texture before terminating in a lingering finish. This is also really quite pretty and more refined than usual thanks to the relatively fine-grained tannins.

Chambolle Musigny Domaine Arnoux Lachaux 2014 (AM88-91)

This wine is the result of a blend of five different blocks all located at the top of Chambolle’s slopes. They have of a north-east exposition which allows them to benefit from nice sunshine. The soil is made of clay and limestone and is very rocky, which confers to the wine this mineral caracteristic of the appellation. The average age of the vines here is 45 years old. Global size : 1 ha 85 .

88-91 points Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (61), January 2016:

This is at once more elegant and spicier as well with its pretty combination of red currant, cherry, lavender and sandalwood hints. There is a sleek and lacy mouth feel to the refined middle weight flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality on the balanced, delicious and persistent finale. This is very Chambolle in style. Drink: 2020+

Chateau Certan Marzelle Pomerol 2006

品種:100% Merlot

Château Certan-Marzelle combines, in a unique way, both tradition and modernism. Sharing its denomination with Vieux Château Certan and Château Certan de May, the property was originally part of Château Certan Giraud. 

Unlike its mythical neighbors, Château Certan Marzelle is planted with 100% Merlot, and its 20 year-old vines produce wines with great softness and charm. This wine is to be enjoyed in its youth as well as after a few years of aging.

89 points The Wine Advocate: 

Another tightly knit wine, despite the fact it is made from 100% Merlot and was showing an opulent, flamboyant character from barrel, this wine now displays excellent density, sweet black cherry fruit intermixed with pain grille, hints of crushed rock, and a distinct earthiness. There is plenty of density, but the wine exhibits relatively high tannins in the finish and seems to be going through an extremely closed state. Give it 3-4 years and drink it over the following 15.

品種:50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc

92 points Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, March 2014:

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Chateau Lalande Borie 2010 has quite a herbaceous, tertiary bouquet that is broody and introspective. The palate is medium-bodied with fine delineation and poise, fine tannins and a composed, tobacco-infused finish that fans out nicely. This is very fine. Tasted January 2014.

92 points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2013:

Currants and dark fruits with hints of licorice. Full and silky with ripe tannins and berry. Cigar tobacco and berry. Sweet tobacco. This is a wine that shows serious depth of fruit and refined tannins. Better in 2016.

Chateau Fleur Cardinale 2011 (RP93)

93 points ROBERT PARKER, THE WINE ADVOCATE (May 2014)

This gorgeous 2011 continues the succession of impressive wines made by this estate since it was acquired by the Decoster family. Beautiful black raspberry, blueberry and black currant fruit notes intermixed with a touch of spring flowers emerge from a wine with excellent balance, nicely integrated acidity, tannin, alcohol and wood, and a healthy saturated ruby/purple color. This full-bodied, long,captivating Fleur Cardinale is already drinking well, and should continue to do so for 10-12 years. It is a sleeper of the vintage. 

16/20 JANCIS ROBINSON:

Black-hearted crimson. Very ripe there’s even a touch of strawberry sweetness to the black fruit. Firm, thick tannins, not dry but quite hard work and slightly bitter on the finish. Drink 2016-2024

90-93 points James Molesworth, Wine Spectator (April 2012):

A ripe, fleshy style, with lots of fig and mulled blackberry and blueberry fruit. Good toast and ganache notes thread this together, with a muscular feel on the finish. An overt style, but well done.

Chateau Fleur Cardinale 2012 (WA93/AG93)

93 points The Wine Advocate:

The flagship wine from the Decoster family, this blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon has been a hugely successful wine since they acquired this 58-acre estate and revolutionized the level of quality. This is consistently one of the best St.-Emilions and over-achieving for its classification. The 2012 has pure, striking aromatics of blueberry, black raspberry, minerals and flowers. Medium to full-bodied, ripe and multi-dimensional, with a beautiful texture, this is stunning wine that completely dominates its classification and over-delivers in terms of quality and potential longevity. It should drink well for 15 or more years. Yields were a modest 34 hectoliters per hectare from an unusually late harvest – October 22 to November 2.

93 points Antonio Galloni:

The 2012 Fleur Cardinale is a beautiful example of modern Saint-Emilion. Silky tannins and soft contours wrap around a core of red cherry jam, wild flowers, mint, cinnamon and white pepper. Dramatic and expansive on the palate, the 2012 shows remarkable nuance for such an intense wine. All the elements fall into place effortlessly.

Chateau Poujeaux 1999 (cru Bourgeois exceptionnel)

88 points Wine Advocate :
This charming, full-bodied 1999 is a sleeper of the vintage. It reveals beautiful, sweet fruit redolent with notes of raspberries, black currants, and spicy wood. The wine is soft, velvety-textured, yet concentrated, with good delineation. It is a strong effort in 1999. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2013.

Known in the 14th century under the name of "La Salle de Poujeaux", Château Poujeaux has belonged to the Theil family since 1921. Jo Gryn of Gault- Millau magazine describes the wine as follows: "An authentic aristocrat among the great wines of the Médoc, a great growth disguised as a Cru Bourgeois". The château has long had an excellent reputation based on its virtual obsession with quality. Poujeaux is always deep in colour, with a subtle bouquet and soft, silky tannin that is never aggressive even when the wine is young. Château Poujeaux is powerful, elegant, charming and well-balanced. The Theil family's policy is trying to always to improve their wine and to do justice to the estate's outstanding terroir. There is every reason to believe that this excellent estate is headed for an even brighter future

La Rioja Alta 904 Gran Reserva 2007 

Tempranillo (90%) and Graciano (10%) from vines over 60 years old in vineyards in Briñas, Labastida and Villalba. 

97 points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, January 2016:

Wonderful purity of fruit with a strawberry, currant and plum character. Full and velvety body with ultra-fine tannins and a delicious fresh and fruity finish. Classic Rioja style. Que lindo! Drink now.

95 points Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate (226), August 2016:

If Viña Ardanza seems to be going fast, the Gran Reserva 904 is even faster and we're now on the 2007 Gran Reserva 904. This wants to be the classic Gran Reserva--polished, silky and elegant, with aging potential. It is a blend of Tempranillo with 10% Mazuelo aged for four years in well-seasoned American oak barrels, with eight manual rackings. I found that the freshness of the vintage and its relatively young age gave the wine a youngish character that I loved, combining developed notes of meat, spices, leather and balsam with almost cherry-like aromas. The palate feels balanced and elegant, with fine-grained and fully resolved tannins and great acidity. This vintage of 904 surprised me! 150,000 bottles produced.
La Rioja Alta is not resting on their laurels, as they are investing nine million Euros in improving their vineyards and winery, including an optical sorting table.

Ridge Lytton Springs 2011

93 points Antonio Galloni (July 2013): 

The 2011 Lytton Springs has a wonderful burst immediacy to it, backed up by the structure of the year. This isn't the most nuanced Lytton Springs in recent memory. Despite its considerable appeal today, my sense is the 2011 needs a few more years in bottle for all of the elements to fully come together. The blend is 82% Zinfandel, 16% Petite Sirah and 2% Carignane.

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (May 2014):

(includes 16% petite sirah and 2% carignane): Opaque ruby. Dark berry and vanilla scents are lifted by smoky spice and mineral qualities and a touch of white pepper. Sappy and appealingly sweet, offering energetic boysenberry and blueberry flavors that become more tangy with air. Silky and assertively spicy on a penetrating finish that leaves subtle floral and mocha notes on the palate.

Chateau Pavie Macquin 2006 波爾多右岸列級

93 Points Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, May 2016:

The 2006 Château Pavie Macquin has a ripe, sensual bouquet with copious kirsch and blueberry scents, fine tension and poise, a faint whiff of boot polish in the background. The palate is very elegant on the entry, pure and supple in the mouth, succulent with vivid black cherry and dark plum notes. It is that keen line of acidity cutting through the fruit that takes this Saint Emilion to a higher level and it comes highly recommended.

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

From a superbly situated on St.-Emilion's plateau, 38-acre vineyard planted on primarily limestone and clay, this 2006 is meant for long-term aging. A combination of 80% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, it is a backward, brawny, muscular, long distance runner. Consumers lacking patience are advised to steer clear of this wine. Its dense purple color is followed by aromas of graphite, sweet cassis, pen ink, and charcoal. This powerful, dense, concentrated wine possesses high tannins and lots of structure. One of the more backward offerings from the right bank in 2006, it will not be close to drinkability for 8-10 years. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030

93 Points James Suckling, Wine Spectator, January 2009:

Blackberry, nutmeg and cappuccino aromas follow through to a full body, with soft, round tannins and ripe fruits. Juicy and rich. Classy. Best from 2014 through 2020.

產區: Saint Emilion, Bordeaux
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.

Chateau La Dominique 2006 波爾多右岸列級

A predominantly Merlot blend, complimented with Cabernet Franc and a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged entirely in oak barrels, of which, 50-70% are new for 15-18 months.

90 Points The Wine Advocate:

After several listless performances from this superb terroir near Cheval Blanc and the Pomerol border, La Dominique's 2006 exhibits a dense purple color and a sweet nose of licorice, nori (the seaweed wrapper used in sushi restaurants), raspberry, and kirsch. Full, with a certain flamboyance, ripe tannins, and a layered, long finish, this is a terrific La Dominique to drink over the next 12-14 years.

89 Points International Wine Cellar:

Full ruby-red. Aromas of black plum, molten chocolate, mocha and licorice show a slightly liqueur-like aspect. Creamy-sweet and lush, with a generous texture to the black cherry, violet and bitter chocolate flavors. Finishes sweet and smoothly tannic but with good backbone. This is the first vintage to be vinified by Jean-Luc Thunevin.

Chateau du Tertre 2011 波爾多五級莊

90 Points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2014:

A wine that has pretty density of fruit, with lots of dried-berry and currant character. Medium to full body with fine tannins and a fresh finish. A little tight now. This year has more cabernet franc at 20%, along with 60% cabernet sauvignon, 10% merlot and 10% petit verdot. Better in 2017.

91 Points Tim Atkin MW, timatkin.com, April 2012:

Despite the high percentage of Petit Verdot, which often brings firmness to a blend, this is a very attractive, easy-drinking Margaux with a hint of reduction, elegant, coffee bean oak, a touch of spice and appealing freshness. 6+ years.

88 Points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (212), May 2014:

A seductive 2011, Du Tertre exhibits a dense purple color along with an attractive, fragrant, flowery nose of red and black fruits, licorice and a touch of earth. With good texture, medium body, an excellent finish, and no hard edges, it can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years.

Chateau Haut Batailley 2011 波爾多五級莊

92 Points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2014:

A wine with extremely integrated fruit-tannin balance, with berry, currant and mineral character. It's so polished and pretty. Full body, juicy fruit and a fresh finish. Needs five to six years of age to soften.

89 Points Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (231), June 2017:

Tasted at a vertical tasting at the château. The 2011 Haut Batailley has an open and expressive bouquet with blackberry and crushed stone—not as vibrant or displaying the same contrast as the 2012, but that powdered stone develops nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and satisfying fruit concentration. This is a more elegant Haut-Batailley, without the weight and concentration of the previous two vintages, but offering finesse and composure on the finish. You could actually drink this now, but it will give another 15-18 years of pleasure. Tasted July 2016.
Drink Date 2018 - 2035

88 Points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (212), May 2014:

Haut-Batailley always seems to represent a synthesis in style between St.-Julien and Pauillac. The silky 2011 possesses dark red and black fruits, medium body, good purity and texture, and reasonable depth. It is not a big wine, but is a well-made effort to drink over the next 10-15 years.

17 Points Steven Spurrier, Decanter.com, April 2012:

Well-expressed, almost crunchy, fruit, clear and refreshing flavours, a charmingly elegant Pauillac. Drink 2015-2025.

Chateau La Tour Carnet 2006

產區:Haut Medoc

分級: 波爾多列級4級莊 

品種 : 50%Merlot, 40% Cab Sauv.,

91 points Wine Advocate - "A fabulous sleeper of the vintage, this estate, which has made a succession of brilliant wines under the administration of Bordeaux's visionary Bernard Magrez, has turned out another terrific effort. A blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this wine exhibits a sensational smorgasbord of aromas ranging from red and black fruits to toasty oak to licorice, high quality cigar tobacco, and spice box. Flavorful and full-bodied, with rich fruit, moderate but sweet tannin, and a long, pure finish, this is a dazzling effort in 2006 that should hit its adolescent stage in about 4-5 years and last for two decades. Excellent value"

90 points Wine Spectator - "A rich, dark red, with cooked plum and licorice aromas. Full-bodied and long, with lots of fruit and velvety tannins. Impressive for the vintage. Best after 2012. 21,870 cases made."

Château La Tour Carnet dates back to the 12th century and is one of the oldest estates in the Médoc region. The medieval architecture features a tower built in 1120 and the château is surrounded by a moat. La Tour Carnet has had several illustrious owners, including the family of Michel de Montaigne, one of the greatest French philosophers and twice-elected Mayor of Bordeaux. The vineyard of Château La Tour Carnet was planted there in 1407.

90 Points The Wine Advocate: 

From Bordeaux visionary Bernard Magrez, this blend of 57% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot comes from one of the most ancient fortified chateaux of the Medoc (constructed in 1120 A.D.). Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by hints of graphite, black currants, spice box and charcoal. This medium-bodied 2011 reveals excellent to outstanding concentration, sweet tannin and a long finish. A sleeper of the vintage, it is a beautiful effort from this challenging vintage. Moreover, it will evolve for 15 or more years.

90 Points Wine Spectator: 

A modern approach, with roasted vanilla bean and anise notes leading the way for plum sauce and warm currant confiture flavors. A little firm wood still shows on the finish, but good material here.

Siro Pacanti Brunello di Montalcino Pelagrilli 2012

95 Points James Suckling: So much violet, licorice and berry character to this. Wonderful depth. Full body, dusty and chewy tannins and a persistent and intense finish. Layered mouthfeel. Drink in 2020.

92 Points Antonio Galloni: Deep red with ruby tinges. Delicately flinty and herbal notes complicate sour red cherry, redcurrant and underbrush aromas. Fresh and juicy but with an almost austere quality to the crisp red berry and minty plum flavors. Finishes long and clean with a mineral nuance. The herbal note disapperars with aeration, so it’s of paramount importance to give this wine plenty of air. Pacenti makes 20,000 bottles a year of this Brunello from 25 to 35 year old vines with roughly 75-80% of the grapes grown in the northern Pellagrilli estate vineyards and the rest from the Piancornello vineyards in the southern reaches Montalcino.

92 Points The Wine Advocate : Boasting contemporary lines and a generously extracted style, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Pelagrilli delivers an approach that will appeal to a wider circle of consumers, far outside hardcore Brunello enthusiasts. The bouquet peels off slowly with rich intensity and dark fruit notes of black cherry, plum, soft spice, tobacco and licorice. You don't get any of the bitter or thorny acidity that can sometimes make Brunello difficult to love, especially in its youth. This wine is appropriate for near or medium-term drinking.

91 Points Wine Enthusiast: This opens with dry underbrush, sun-baked soil and French oak aromas. The palate is equally brooding, its dried black cherry and blackberry fruit brushed with licorice and espresso flavors. Assertive, close-grained tannins leave a firm finish. Drink 2020–2027.

BODEGAS Toro Albala Don PX Gran Reserva 1987 

94  Points Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate, Apr 2016 :

Each year they select a number of single vintage, sweet PX wines to be bottled, the first of which (besides the young wine) is the 1987 Don Px Gran Reserva in 2016 - a wine aged in American oak casks for some 28 years. These wines are almost indestructible, so the drinking windows are mostly academic. This showcases the classical aromas and palate of an old PX from Montilla, strong notes of dark chocolate, dried figs and plums, raisins and sweet spices; the dense, thick and persistent palate where the 380 grams of unfermented sugar are not noticeable, as they are balanced by good acidity that also gets concentrated by age. This is probably the densest of all the wines I tasted today, and there is a distinct, perfumed, almost floral note here (is it violet pastille?), which makes it extremely attractive. It's also the most drinkable of all these old vintages, very balanced within its sweet profile, with marked flavors (also licorice and black olives) that stay in your mouth for one minute. Exotic and exuberant. This is incredibly young and lively, and very good value for the age and quality it delivers. 52,000 liters bottled.

Chateau Pape Clement 2007

品種:60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot.

92 Points The Wine Advacote : Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Pape Clement has a pure and refined bouquet, perhaps not with the same charm and personality of say Domaine de Chevalier or Haut-Bailly, yet with panache and class, kirsch and touches of blue fruit laced with cedar and graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with a touch of menthol on the entry. It is a slightly more exotic take on the vintage compared to its peers, yet there is commendable substance and spiciness on the finish that keeps you coming back. Tasted February 2017.

92 Points ST - International Wine Cellar:  Medium ruby-red. Exotic aromas of currant, plum, tobacco, minerals, smoke and spices, complicated by hints of cherry-cola and pepper. At once generous and juicy, with lovely inner-mouth aromatic character and a strong impression of soil to the flavors of candied redcurrant, tobacco and spices. Finishes broad and long, with a fine dusting of sweet tannins. Very strong for the year.

91 Points Wine Enthusiast: A wine that is dominated by wood at this stage in its development. But the structure and the fruit are all there, waiting to slot into place in the next 2–3 years. Spice and bright black berry flavors layer with final acidity.

90 Points Wine Spectator: Blackberry and mineral aromas, with hints of dried flowers, truffle and tobacco. Full-bodied, with a wonderful balance of cool fruit and fine tannins. Classy for the vintage. Best after 2012. 8,335 cases made.

John Duval Plexus SGM 2014
#34 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2016

The Shiraz was sourced from old vineyards in the Tanunda, Krondorf and Ebenezer districts, Grenache from the Tanunda and Ebenezer region, and Mourvèdre from the Light Pass region. A true reflection of Barossa’s soil and climate, Plexus expresses complex aromas and flavors combining red and dark fruits with savory notes. The palate is framed by youthful fine tannins and subtle savory French oak adds structure and complexity.

93 Points Wine Spectator: "A sophisticated, spicy mix of date bread, cherry compote and clove flavors. Plump and velvety, with persistence and harmony on the finish. Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2026."

92 Points The Wine Advocate: "Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Plexus (a Shiraz, Grenache. Mourvèdre blend) is a little youthfully reticent, offering glimpses at black raspberry and mulberry aromas plus licorice, cracked black pepper, earth and lavender. Medium to full-bodied and still very primary in the mouth, it has a great intensity of red and black fruit flavors supported by ripe, rounded tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and spicy."

產區: Alsace,France

品種:60-65% Auxerrois ,30-35% Gewürztraminer, 5% Riesling

Age of vines : 35`

A classic Alsatian field blend predominantly made up from Auxerrois with Riesling and Gewürztraminer, this is a bright, aromatic and mineral driven white wine for a very reasonable price.

Roero Arneis Bruno Giacosa 2014

Winemaker notes: Its delicate skin makes it one of the most recalcitrant varieties in Piedmont. Native to Roero, this grape was on the brink of near-extinction by the 1970s. Thanks to houses such as Vietti and the legendary Bruno Giacosa, it is still here for your enjoyment. Salute!

92 Points James Suckling: This is fantastic. Gorgeous acidity and minerality with dried pear and apple. Lemon and other ctirus undertones; hints of grapefruit. Full to medium body. Very long and fresh. You want to drink this in warm weather to freshen up.

Barbaresco Riserva Pora, Produttori del Barbaresco 2008

產區:Barbaresco, Piedmont, Italy

品種: 100% Nebbiolo

95 Points Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate (203), October 2012:

Playing true to type, the 2008 Barbaresco Riserva Pora is another of the more open wines in this vintage. But that is only in relative terms. Layers of expressive red fruit, crushed flowers and spices flesh out in this radiant Barbaresco. In most vintages the Pora is one of the more accessible of the Riservas when young. The close proximity of the vineyard to the Tanaro River results in a warm microclimate that ripens the fruit earlier than elsewhere. In 2008, though, the Pora packs a serious punch. The coolness of the late harvest comes through in a finish laced with considerable tension and minerality. This is easily one of the very best Poras I have ever tasted from the Produttori. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2048.

La Magia Brunello di Montalcino 2012

品種:100% Sangiovese

96 points James Suckling (Nov 2016) : Incredible purity of fruit to this red with plums, cherries and berries. Full body, ripe and silky tannins and a fantastically long finish. Love the bitter-orange undertone to this. Drink in 2020. 

92 Points Wine Enthusiast: Truffle, leather, Mediterranean brush, chopped herb and black-skinned fruit aromas meld together with a balsamic note. The juicy, concentrated palate shows dried cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon and licorice while fine-grained tannins lend support. Give it time for the tannins to fully integrate. Drink 2020–2030.

Mastrojanni Brunello di Montalcino 2011 

品種:100% Sangiovese

產區:Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy

93 Points The Wine Advocate - "Mastrojanni is on a roll. This extraordinary estate has been enjoying the spotlight lately and very much deserves the attention. I'm adding my name to a long list of their fans. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a classic expression of Sangiovese with soft lines and enduring flavors. You do feel some of the vintage heat, but the ripeness is contained thanks to the delicate and nuanced nature of its fruit. It also shows enormous grace in the mouth. The wine is silky and svelte with long, polished tannins. Mastrojanni's wines are linked by a common characteristic that is easy to identify in most vintages. That common denominator is excellent oak management."

93 Points James Suckling - "Round and rich with beautiful decadent fruit and richness. Orange peel. Full and juicy. Intense dried fruit and beauty. Sexy. Drink now."

92 Points Wine Enthusiast: Intense red berry, cake spice, new leather and sunbaked earth aromas meld together. The big, chewy palate delivers fleshy black cherry, toast, coffee, anise and grilled herb alongside solid, ripe tannins. You'll also get a nod of alcohol on the finish.

90 Points Wine Spectator: This is savory, boasting licorice, saline, soy and sweet berry flavors. Smooth and fleshy, with fine balance and a lingering savory aftertaste. Drink now through 2024.

Ridge Lytton Springs 2014 

產區:Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma, United States 

品種:69% Zinfandel, 18% Petite Sirah, 11% Carignane, 2% Mataro (Mourvedre)

This Lytton Springs Ridge has Black cherry, vanilla, toasty oak and mint aromas. Complex of raspberry, black olive, licorice with chalky tannins. Long finish with intriguing notes of pepper and spice.

94 Points Antonio Galloni:

The 2014 Lytton Springs is another absolutely gorgeous wine. Perhaps because of its relatively recent bottling, the 2004 feels a bit compressed, but there appears to be plenty of complexity and depth hiding behind the acidity and tannin. Far from an easygoing Zinfandel, the 2014 Lytton is a wine to buy and cellar for at least a handful of years. The wine's richness, persistence and vertical intensity all lead me to believe it will be special in time. Black cherry, pomegranate, mint and sweet spices meld into the resonant finish. A kick of tannin from the Petite adds personality, something the 2014 has in spades.

91+ Points The Wine Advocate:

More fresh and elegant than the Geyserville, with a touch more focus, the 2014 Lytton Springs is another beautiful wine from this estate. Made from 69% Zinfandel, 18% Petite Sirah and the rest Carignan and Mourvèdre, aged in 20% new American oak, it boasts fabulous notes of plums, blackberry jam, toasted spice and licorice as well as medium to full-bodied richness, beautiful mid-palate depth and notable tannin. The Geyserville is a touch sexier, but this will be longer lived. Give bottles 2-3 years of cellaring and enjoy over the following decade or more.

La Rioja Alta "Viña Ardanza" Reserva Rioja 2008 

95 Points Decanter:

The best classic style of Grenache and Tempranillo pulling together joyful fruit expression and serious depth. In the mouth it is amazingly complex and so unique. A benchmark Rioja blend. A rich, sweet and savoury Reserva style with all the red cherries and a strong Grenache influence. It is somewhat old-fashioned, in a good way, with plentiful integrated oak and a fine rasp of tannin. This has a wonderful oxidative style, giving it a superb savoury nose of leather. It is a perfect combination of mellowness versus vigour, and at the same time exudes great finesse.

93 Points James Suckling:

Aromatic nose of dried strawberries and flowers follows through to a full body, soft and velvety tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Opulent and delicious yet refined. Drink now.

93 Points Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate:

Vintages for Viña Ardanza seem to be going fast. It seems like yesterday that the 2001 was released and now the 2008 Viña Ardanza is already here. This is the first vintage when they have been able to use the fruit from their new Garnacha vineyards in the village of Tudelilla (Rioja Baja), La Pedriza, which represents 20% of the blend complementing the majority of Tempranillo. The wine was put in barrel in March 2009, separately; the Tempranillo was in four-year-old barrels for 36 months with six rackings, and the Garnacha in second and third use barrels for 30 months with five rackings. Vintages might go fast, but the wine does not feel too young, which was my fear. There are notes of stewed meat, cured leather, cloves, other spices and an overall balsamic character. The palate feels solid, consistent, nicely built, with abundant tannins and good balancing acidity. This should stand up to food and be able to develop in bottle.

90 Points Wine Spectator:

Cedar, tea and tobacco notes frame the dried cherry, vanilla and orange peel flavors in this traditional red. Offers good depth and lively acidity, with an alluring, spicy finish. An old-school style, compact and balanced. Drink now through 2023.

TE KOKO Cloudy Bay 2014

產區: Marlborough, New Zealand

品種:100% Sauvignon Blanc

An iconic wine from New Zealand's most iconic winery. Atypical for Kiwi Sauvignon, the Te Koko is fermented using indigenous 'wild' yeasts, and subjected to batonnage as it ages in oak. Released as a three year old wine, this is unlike anything else from New Zealand! Lychees and almonds with classic gooseberry notes and a hint of wood smoke. A full bodied palate of citrus fruits with the richer flavours of caramel and nougat, leading to a crisp yet spicy finish. Able to age for up to five years, this wine an ideal partner to tuna, oysters and poached fish.

This is very tannic yet polished and firm with currants, bark, and stones. Full-bodied and muscular and linear. Love the length. Beautiful. Try in 2020.

93 Points Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, February 2017:

The 2014 d'Armailhac is bright, precise and finely sculpted. Expressive red stone fruit, flowers, mint, chalk and citrus abound in this vibrant, beautifully delineated Pauillac. Open-knit and expressive, with good depth and silky tannins, the wine exudes class. The fresh, invigorating style is classic 2014. This is a lovely showing. Tasted two times.

Source from 2 vineyards : planted in 1899 (Marananga) and 1965 (Nuriootpa)

James Halliday Wine Companion 2016 - James Halliday (Jul 2015) : 97 pts

"From 1899 and 1965 estate plantings, matured in French (75%) and American oak for 15 months. An exceptional pedigree reflected in a shiraz of rare elegance, balance and finesse; its supple, medium-bodied palate is almost lip smacking, so juicy is it, but there is no shortage of texture or structure."

Gevrey-Chambertin VV Domaine Rossignol-Trapet 2014

The Rossignols are large land-owners in Gevrey enabling them to retain the fruit only from their oldest vines, the rest being sold anonymously. The result is a wine close to premier cru quality, fermented with 30% whole bunches and aged in 10% new oak.

An open nose of alluring black cherries, cream and flower petals gives way to a finely structured palate. The style is rich and deep, with succulent fruit nicely balanced by complex secondary aromas and flavours and an earthiness characteristic of this village. One of the best Gevrey Chambertin village level wines available, and as such this is great value.

Cloudy Bay Chardonnay 2014 

92 Points The Wine Advocate:  "The 2014 Chardonnay possesses beautiful purity of apricot and pink grapefruit aromas with nuances of baking bread, honeycomb and cashews. Medium-bodied with a commendably satiny texture, it has seamless freshness and a nice long finish."

91 Points Wine Spectator:  "Features creamy overtones to the lemon meringue and vanilla pudding flavors, with spice and floral details adding complexity. The finish is juicy and refreshing. "

90 Points Antonio Galloni: "Bright light yellow. Grapefruit pith, stone, spicy oak and a sexy touch of honey on the nose. Saline, brisk, grapefruity wine with serious energy and a complicating touch of sulfidey flint. Savory and nicely balanced. This shares a silkiness of texture with the Sauvignon Blanc but the latter wine is brighter and longer. Cloudy Bay will be going to lighter-toast oak with the 2015 to preserve local character. Operation winemaker Daniel Sorrell told me that he loves Burgundy and is moving in the direction of more feminine, structured, gently extracted wines."

Winemaker's Notes: Complex flavors of cashew nut, preserved lemon and nectarine. Then, subtle grapefruit and white floral notes reveal themselves. Layered with a bold complexity of ripe fruit flavour and spicy, smoky oak characters. The combined texture of fruit density and lees work provides a focal point that is balanced by fresh and firm acidity

Chateau Gruaud Larose 1981

63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, 3% petit Verdot.

90 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal (Jan 2012)

"It has a light but well defined bouquet with notes of redcurrant, boysenberry, mint leaf and cedar with good intensity and vigour. It reminds more of Las-Cases ’81 in some ways. The palate is medium-bodied with a dry, quite savoury entry, powdery and slightly edgy tannins. The fruit appears to be fading although the secondary flavours and compensating with touches of Chinese 5-spice, orange zest, dried blood and sandalwood. Classic old skool St-Julien towards the finish that has moderate length." 

91 points Wine Spectator (Oct 1994) : Polished, big, dark-colored, with rich and opulent aromas and flavors and loads of tobacco, cedary and berry character. 

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Oct 1989): A top success for the vintage, the 1981 Gruaud-Larose is dark ruby, with a full-intensity bouquet of ripe black currants, spicy oak, plums, leather, smoked meat, and violets. This wine is concentrated on the palate, with rich, tannic, lingering flavors.

Chateau Chasse-Spleen 1999 忘憂堡

Did Lord Byron give this name to the château, swearing that there was nothing like it for "chasser le spleen" (getting rid of the blues)? Or was it Charles Baudelaire, who is said to have come to Moulis in the 1860s because the artist Odilon Redon, who illustrated Les Fleurs du Mal, lived near the estate? Not included in the 1855 Classification, the château was listed as a Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel in 1932, and confirmed in 2003 in recognition of its excellent quality. Bernadette Villars took over managing the estate in 1976, followed by her elder daughter, Claire, from 1992 to 1999, and her younger daughter, Céline, since 2000. Chasse-Spleen is an extraordinary wine, it is a shining example of the best its appellation can produce. The wine is deep in colour and has a concentrated, powerful bouquet. It is full-bodied on the palate, with a strong personality. An eminently attractive wine

Janics Robinson 17/20:

A floral sweet violet nose. Quite Margaux in style. Very sweet cherry and strawberry palate. Perhaps more early drinking than others but very fine rounded wine. Tasting again in November 2002 it had gone into its shell and was far less revealing and pleasurable. WA90-92

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.

在著名酒評人 Hugh Johnson & Janice Robinson “ The World Atlas of Wine “ 中被評為 “ 1001 WINES YOU MUST TASTE BEFORE YOU DIE “,黎巴嫩的 Chateau Musar 是地中海東部最傑出的酒莊。這個世界級酒莊的成功故事,充滿着令人尊敬的奮鬥和堅持執着的態度。

Decanter 如此形容Musar : "放眼全世界沒有任何其他人在葡萄酒世界有著如此不可思議困難且危險重重的工作,但卻能夠克服它。在這樣的環境底下完成釀酒已經是難能可貴了,而能釀出傑出的酒款,更是卓越不凡。"

創立於1930年的是由莊主 Gaston Hochar 與避居黎巴嫩的波爾多釀酒師Ronald Barton所建立,1959年第二代Serge Hochar 在波爾多大學釀酒系畢業後回到酒廠接手工作,讓 Chateau Musar 開始大放異彩。 1975年開始,黎巴嫩陷入長達15年的內戰,在動盪不安,烽火四起的局勢下,Serge依然堅持繼續釀酒,帶領員工在槍林彈雨中,完成葡萄園的照顧與採收,除了1976與1984年之外,Chateau Musar仍然克服萬難,生產品質卓越的葡萄酒,這樣的精神讓 Serge Hochar在1984年被Decanter雜誌選為第一屆 "Decanter Man of the Year".
