Chateau Musar Blanc 2008 黎巴嫩白酒

HK$300

Chateau Musar Blanc 2008

品種:Obaideh, Merwah

產區:Bekka Valley ,Lebanon

In youth: yellow-gold, subtly oaky, and creamy-textured, rich yet dry and intensely citrusy, with honeyed nuances. Wholly unique, the style has been described as resembling ‘dry Sauternes’ or mature white Graves. Chateau Musar Whites develop tawny hues and mellow spicy characters as they age. The cellars at Ghazir holds bottles of this wine dating as far back as 1954. 

Grapes and vines
Seven years in the making, Chateau Musar White is a blend of ancient grape varieties Obaideh and Merwah, indigenous to the mountains of Lebanon and said to be related to Chasselas Chardonnay and Semillon. The Obaideh vineyards are in the foothills of the Anti-Lebanon mountains on stony, chalky soils, while the Merwah vines are on the seaward side of Mount Lebanon, on calcareous gravels. Yields are very low for these untrained bushvines: 10 - 20 hl per hectare. At high altitude (around 1400m) they are still on their own roots, among very few vineyards in the world of this calibre.

Winemaking
Chateau Musar White is fermented in French oak barriques (from the forest of Nevers) for 9 months, bottled and blended at the end of its first year and released seven years after the harvest. 

Decanting and serving
Concentrated and complex, Chateau Musar Whites show at their best after several hours’ ‘breathing time’, and should be served ‘cellar cool’ at around 15°C. They excel with pâtés (especially foie gras), rillettes, seafood dishes and will match spicy food as the wine has such intense flavours.

Storage
To keep the wines showing at their best, bottles must be cellared in darkness, lying on their sides and not subjected to unnecessary movement or fluctuations in temperature.

Chateau Musar 2004
產區:Bekaa Valley, Lebanon
品種:Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Carignan

91 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2004 Chateau Musar is an equal blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Cinsault. This is a rather civilized, laid back Musar... Its balance, combining the nice fruit, elegant mid-palate, persistent finish and backbone, gives it a tightly wound, precise and focused demeanor. The tannins are not completely integrated, but not overly hard. They provided some welcome grip and vibrancy and never overwhelmed the wine. In the long run, they should serve this wine in good stead. Overall, it is an exceptionally graceful, somewhat modern and restrained Musar, bright, with that silky texture I saw in the Hochar reviewed this issue, while adding those layers of concentration. The cherry on top is the intensity of fruit flavor – bursts of delicious and juicy fruit on the finish, admittedly nuanced by some of the gamey notes I see here so often. Call it raspberry flavored, though, because the fruit is delicious. The gamey notes were in fact moderate and, at least for my taste, not an issue. As this rather subtle Musar aired out, I liked it more and more. I’ve had Musars that were bigger, burlier, more rustic and more astringent. Here, the subtle start was unremarkable, but it gathered steam, showed remarkable finesse and then won me over. This will certainly do better with food. Drink now-2021.

另外,1999年在著名酒評人 Hugh Johnson “ 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。 Very high alcohol, high acidity and a lot of extract - the wine was rich, round and full bodied, highly concentrated with a very long finish.

Chateau Musar 2001
產區:Bekaa Valley, Lebanon
品種:Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Carignan

93 points Wine & Spirits (Jun 2010):

As elegant as Serge Hochar himself, the man behind Château Musar, this blend of cabernet sauvignon, carignan and cinsault is lithe yet firm. The fruit feels autumnal, in shades of rust red and ocher spice, and is saturated with a spicy, foresty fragrance. It's delicious now, ready for game birds scented with juniper berries, and should live on for another decade. 

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Feb 2010):

Nuanced by cherries and spice, it is quite delicious...The ’00 is the powerhouse bruiser, the most rustic, while the Hochar is the approachable, easier wine. This is the one in the middle, arguably the best balance of fruit and power. On the downside, this is as gamey and funky as the 2000, but the balance is different, the wine seeming fruitier and fleshier, not quite as austere. Depending on your taste, you may find that a good thing, or prefer the more powerful and intellectual 2000. This is still powerful, I hasten to add, with drying notes on the finish, but the fruitiness melds beautifully with the barnyard notes, and it is nicely supported by the tannin rather than overwhelmed. As with the 2000, this should age well, although the 2000 should age longer, and this will be a wine some will love, and some will find has too much barnyard. Personally, I enjoyed it a lot, and was just imagining how it would work with venison. Drink now-2020.

92 pts Wine Advocate :
As the 2012 is already sold out, the 2013 Roda is the one in the market, and it has been in bottle since July 2015. 2013 was not an easy vintage, and they had to harvest selectively to come to this blend of Tempranillo with 3% Graciano, which has higher acidity than normal after the usual natural fermentation in oak vats and élevage in barriques. This is a completely different vintage from 2012, as 2013 was a very cold and wet year; the Mediterranean varieties did not achieve enough ripeness, and they couldn't include any Garnacha. The rain was needed after two very dry years, but the ripening of grapes was not homogeneous. It's an atypical year after 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, with fine wines, lots of freshness and vibrant tannins—a truly Atlantic, cool-climate vintage.

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.

Vilafonte series M 2013

Region:  Stellenbosch, South Africa

The Wine Advocate : 91 points

Tasting Note: “Kirsch, black cherry, dark chocolate and cassis all abouund on the nose and palate. This is enticing and very plush with a good cherry and damson fruit core. Granular with ripe tannins and although there is clearly high levels of glycerol and sweetness of fruit it is all managed and held in check. The dollop Malbec gives a black pepper and spicey edge to the wine, the Merolt giving weight and roundness and the Cabernet Sauvignon keeping the structure”.

Series M takes its name from the Malbec and Merlot which predominantly define the style of this wine. Series M is sensuous wine with a firm core structure for aging. Malbec provides its black fruit aromas and fleshy texture, Merlot adds softness and red fruit aromas, and Cabernet Sauvignon provides structure.

Vina Tondonia Reserva Lopez de Heredia 2004

品種: 75% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacha, 10% Graciano and Mazuelo

酒莊成立於1877年, Rioja最古老的三家酒莊之一,這家酒莊至今仍被認為是傳統Rioja的衛士,時至今日,他們仍在以最古老的方式釀酒,一切就像一百多年前的模樣,經典的韻味十足。 酒莊 屬於R. López de Heredia家族,擁有四塊葡萄田(Viña Tondonia, ViñaCubillo, Viña Bosconia和 Viña Zaconia)。其中Tondonia出產的葡萄酒最為出名,也代表了家族醉高品質葡萄酒。根據Rioja產區分級制度: Reserva 級別的紅葡萄酒至少酒窖陳年 3 年,其中在橡木桶中陳釀至少 1 年。這款Tinto Reserva 2004僅在橡木桶中陳年就用了6年時間,遠遠超過了法定陳年的時間。2004年是里奧哈產區非常優秀的年份,這一年出產的葡萄酒有足夠的實力可以經受住長期的橡木桶陳放,從而達到果香和陳年香氣的平衡,表現複雜,圓潤細膩。就連RP都認為其適飲期可以長達到2025年。

94 points Wine Advocate:

The 2004 Viña Tondonia Reserva is a completely different story. It is a worthy follower of the 2001, the greatest of the Viña Tondonia Reservas of recent times. It has the usual blend and usual levels of alcohol and acidity, bottled after six years in oak barrels. The nose feels savory (if that's possible–umami?) and developed, with tertiary aromas and good balance between spices, leathery notes, cherries and balsamic notes of cigar box and incense. The palate is both round and crisp, with refined tannins. It has very good balance with subtle acidity and very good persistence.

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.

Will be long lived if the cork permits.” James Halliday Wine Companion, 2011 93 points eRobertParker.COM: “My favorite of the 2007 Grenache cuvees is the 2007 Grenache Onkaparinga. Aside from being the most approachable, it has the most enticing perfume with its notes of underbrush, incense, lavender, black cherry and blackberry liqueur. Velvety but with some underlying tannin, it has succulent fruit, impeccable balance, and a lengthy finish.” Jay Miller, eRobertParker.com, 2009

HK$360

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.

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.

Altesino Brunello di Montalcino 2010

產區:Tuscany, Italy

品種:100% Sangiovese

Altesino, Brunello di Montalcino 2010 (JS95/RP93) 表現得比較陰柔,有香草、香料類等比較複雜的香氣,口感細滑、優雅,有點飄逸, 可能因為我們習慣了 Brunello 的濃妝,北區的淡然看上去更似素顏、更具風土。 Altesino位處Montalcino 北區的。因北區比較涼,常常比中、南部的酒較圓潤或者平衡,更多風土的特點。然而,北區從來都是這個出名產區最不起眼的後花園,因為長久以來,當紅酒評人把光環全加在中、南部酒莊的頭上。 

95 points James Suckling (Dec 2014):  Wonderful decadent aromas of musk, orange peel and plum follow through to a full body, with soft tannins and a long and rich finish. Salty and savory. Layers of gorgeous fruit. Drink or hold. 

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Feb 2015):  Altesino's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino stands proud among its peers. No other wine I tasted among the new releases in Montalcino achieves this unique level of aromatic finesse and distinction. The bouquet is almost purely floral in character with a strong emphasis on pressed rose petal, dried violets and potpourri. The fruit tones are less emphatic and include bright cherry and red currant. In the mouth, the wine's compressed texture is accented by fennel seed and licorice. the 2009 vintage had more power and heat, but this version shows elegant restraint. 93+ (ML) 

93 points Wine Spectator (Jun 2015): Expressive aromas of eucalyptus, juniper and wild rosemary give way to sweet berry flavors, though the juniper, rosemary and emerging mint accents linger. This is like a walk in the woods, with a fresh, elegant frame. Best from 2017 through 2030.

Emilio Moro, Malleolus 2009

產區: Ribera del Duero, Spain

品種: 100% Tempranillo (Tinto Fino)

92 Points Wine Advocate - "The 2009 Malleolus is sourced from 25- to 75-year-old vines aged for 18 months in new French oak. It has a rather predictable nose with that veneer of glossy, vanilla-tinged oak and yet you cannot deny that it is well-defined and maintains good freshness, with the fruit suggesting it will meld together with time. The palate is ripe and voluptuous with sensual black cherries, blueberry and layers of creamy oak on the finish. Although it needs to develop more individuality through its bottle evolution, it is undeniably very well-crafted and will please those who love opulent Ribera del Duero wines"

92 Points International Wine Cellar - "Opaque ruby. Highly nuanced aromas of cherry compote, smoky minerals, vanilla and candied flowers. Offers seductively sweet red and dark fruit and floral pastille flavors, with exotic floral tones and sweet oak in the background. This powerful yet lively wine finishes with excellent thrust and supple tannins."

Chateau Bourgneuf 2011

In the heart of the prestigious Pomerol appellation, Château Bourgneuf is spread over 9 hectares in one unique holding. Bourgneuf has belonged to the Vayron family since 1840. Eight generations have succeeded each other, transmitting their love for this land and its history.

91 pts James Suckling, February 19th, 2014:

A wine with a pretty ripe-fruit character and ripe, chewy tannins. Some toasted oak as well. I think it needs another two or three years to soften the tannins and bring it all together. Serious 2011 Pomerol. 

90-92 pts Neal Martin – robertparker.com:

The Vayron family have conjured a lovely Pomerol this year… I appreciate its purity and feminity… You know, this could be the best Bourgneufs that I have tasted en primeur. Chapeau! Tasted twice with consistent notes.

Merlot 85% , Cabernet Franc 15%

90 points  Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #212 Apr 2014

This is a strong effort from La Pointe, another estate that seems to be producing better and better wines. A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, the 2011 reveals a dense ruby/plum/purple color, a sweet perfume of black raspberries, black currants, licorice and subtle high quality oak, medium to full body, and an expansive, broad, pure texture. Drink this sleeper of the vintage over the next decade.

90 pts James Molesworth (WineSpectator.com, March 2014):

Very solid, with a ganache spine supporting the enticing dark plum and fig fruit flavors, while bramble and singed wood spice notes fill in on the finish. Approachable now, this should mellow in the short-term. Drink now through 2021. 7,500 cases made.

(March 2012, Primeurs tasting comments by Hubert de Boüard de Laforest): “Deep, bright and lively colour with a dark purple rim. The nose opens out with floral notes such as violet that evolve towards ripe fruits, blackberry and raspberry. The palate is generous and long with a very pleasant freshness. This freshness persists on the finish and complements the lingering notes of tobacco and licorice. The tannins are taut and enveloped in a silky smoothness, a sure characteristic of an outstanding Pomerol. The 2011 perfectly demonstrates Château La Pointe’s reborn style developed over the last few vintages.”

Travaglini Gattinara Riserva 2011

Region: Gattinara, Italy, 建議醒酒6小時

93 pts James Suckling:

You can smell the ripeness of the vintage with dried strawberry and orange peel character. Full body, chewy tannins and a savory finish. Rich and powerful. Drink or hold.

93 pts Wine Enthusiast:

Attractive aromas of rose, wild berry and aromatic herb lead the nose on this elegantly structured red. The bright palate offers crushed raspberry, juicy dark cherry, licorice and clove alongside firm polished tannins. A flinty mineral note energizes the finish. Hold for more complexity. Drink 2019–2026.

91 pts Wine Advocate:

Travaglini's 2011 Gattinara Riserva sees fruit sourced from the best rows of vines from various parcels located throughout the entire property. The wine is only produced in the best vintages. This is a more austere and structured wine with layered tones of black fruit, spice, licorice and campfire ash. There is a floral element of pressed rose petals that appears with delicate intensity at the back. In the mouth, this wine offers power and good structure.

Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2012

100% Sangiovese grapes picked by hand from 20-year-old vines

# 2012 is not a vintage to miss for fans of Brunello di Montalcino.

95+ points Wine Advocate:

Il Poggione is a Brunello superstar and a vintage like this reveals every reason why that affirmation is true. From the second the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino pours into the glass, you know you are in for something special. The wine is darkly saturated and rich in appearance. Absent are those slightly amber or browning hues you often get with Sangiovese in a hot vintage. Nor does the wine show flat or tired characteristics. Instead, the quality of fruit is vibrant and rich. This is a healthy, generous and exuberant Brunello with dark density and succulent fruit flavors that are followed by integrated spice and tobacco. The balance is impressive and one thing you get here is fresh acidity. This is not to be underestimated, because the acidity quota in the 2012 vintage across the appellation is not as high or evident as usual. This is one of the year's best Brunellos.

93 points James Suckling:

Walnuts and cedar with plums and hints of milk chocolate. Always subtle. Medium body, a solid core of fruit and medium-chewy tannins. Center palate of cherry fruit. Give it a year or two to soften.

Duemani 2004

Luca d'Attoma is a highly respected Tuscan wine consultant, employers have included Azienda Agricola Le Macchiole in Bolgheri and Tua Rita, who, along with wife Elena Celli, eventually realised a dream to produce his own wine. Luca and Elena are the Duemani 'two hands' that run the estate. They first identified a wonderful site in the north Bolgheri hills in the mid nineties. The purchase 7 ha of land and set about preparing the soils for Biodynamic viticulture. This took seven years. The first vines were planted in 2001 and already, by the 2008 vintage, they have started to make some outstanding wines. The structure of the soil here is remarkable for its predominance of clay and stone – the resulting low soil fertility leading to greater character and complexity in the vines fruit. After an examination of the property and its unique position in the contour of a west-facing amphitheatre there emerged the sites of three distinct vineyards. The vineyard at the highest altitude and with the richest soil is the site of their Cabernet Franc vines. Another lower vineyard continues with the same varietal and then evolves into rows of Merlot vines. The third and smallest   vineyard, notably stony and arid, is the 'heart' of the estate and is planted to 7000 vines of alberello-trained Syrah. From the very beginning Duemani have followed the principles of biodynamic farming and since the 2004 harvest their estate's production.

Clos de l'Oratoire 2006

分級:Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classe
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.

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.

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.
