Chateau Gruaud Larose 1981 波爾多二級莊,36年風華正茂

Hong Kong Price 價錢:
HK$850
Bordeaux, Saint Julien
HK$850HK$790

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.

Isole e Olena Cepparello 2012 Vinous 97/JS94/WA93 Screw Capsule

Hong Kong Price 價錢:

HK$650HK$600

Isole e Olena Cepparello 2012

媲美"女人頭Le Pergole Torte"的 Isole e Olena 來自偏西邊的 Castellina村北面的Barberino Val d'Elsa,由兩塊田Isole和Olena組成,位於Chianti Classico,海拔400米。莊主Paolo De Marchi是最早在CC採用100%Sangiovese的酒莊之一,Paolo來自Piedmont地區,之前他沒有任何葡萄酒釀造經驗,全憑自己的努力,謙虛的精神和沈穩的性格,在沒有聘請顧問的情況下,創造了100%純Sangiovese的Cepparello。 Nicolas Belfrage曾問他什麼使他有動力這麼投入創作了Cepparello,Paolo說“I wanted to understand Sangiovese。” 他的理念是將葡萄酒和生長葡萄的土地鏈接在一起,真實展示出Chianti風土的典型性。

"Cepparello" 是酒莊的旗艦酒款。呈現了Barberino Val d'Elsa 風土帶來的power,入口丹寧有力,骨架強健,又十分的優雅,給人一種很Man的感覺,又覺得很深邃,複雜度很高,蘑菇,烤杏仁,果丹皮,花香,很有活力。陳年後,更有菌菇,肉湯,櫻桃的香氣絡繹不絕,讓很多酒友想起了Chambertin中的王者Domaine Armand Rousseau。

97 pts Vinous: 

The 2012 Cepparello is just as compelling as it has always been. Sweet, ample and generous from the outset, the 2012 shows all of its pedigree, even at this early stage. Radiant fruit and exquisite aromatics make a strong opening statement as the wine fleshes out in the glass. Ample, creamy and super-expressive, the 2012 is shaping up to be a superb Cepparello. The only thing the 2012 needs is time. An up and down year with hot temperatures in July and early August, followed by rain in September forced DeMarchi to be especially selective and bottle only the best lots. Production is down to 30,000 bottles from 36,000 in 2013 and 32,400 in 2011.

94 pts James Suckling:

Pretty bright fruit with blackcurrant, violet and sandalwood aromas and flavors. Full body, firm and linear tannins and a fresh finish. Needs two or three years to soften. Cepparello is always a classic. Better in 2017.

Chateau Gloria 2011

90 Points Wine Spectator - "Mouthfilling, offering a fleshy, briary feel to the plum sauce, steeped currant and blackberry notes, with extra anise, tar and fruitcake details pumping through the finish. Lacks a little refinement in terms of structure, but this offers solid range and depth. Best from 2016 through 2024. Tasted twice, with consistent notes"

90 Points Wine Enthusiast - "This is an open, juicy wine with attractive fruit framed by firm but tamed tannins. The wine has a feeling of lightness, with black currant flavors that are lifted and fresh. This is a wine for medium-term aging. Drink from 2015. "

88 Points Wine Advocate :
An excellent effort, the 2011 Gloria continues the success this well-known property has enjoyed over the last several decades. A delicious concoction of red and black fruits, spice box, and earth as well as a silky textured, medium-bodied style emerge from this is an undeniable sleeper of the vintage. The round tannins, delicious fruit and forward character suggest it should be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years.

91 points Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Ripe, juicy and explosive on the palate, the 2009 captures many of the best qualities of the year. Sweet red cherries, flowers, spices and tobacco burst from the glass. All the elements are in gorgeous balance in a soft, supple Brunello with tons of near and medium-term appeal.

Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Reservee 2014

WS93/JS91/WA90

*93 pts Wine Spectator:* 
A gutsy style, with a frame of brick dust around a core of steeped cherry, plum and blackberry fruit. The back end pulls in dried sage, savory and tobacco notes. The finish lingers over a singed chestnut hint. Rock-solid and unabashedly old-school. Best from 2020 through 2030.

*91 pts James Suckling:* 
A wild, rustic edge to this assertive and punchy fruit-driven Châteauneuf-du-Pape. A smooth black cherry and blood plum-flavored palate. Appealing tangy freshness to close. The rusticity denotes drink now or as a much older wine.

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.

James Suckling 的10大 super super tuscans 之一, 100% Merlot, 來自意大利 Tuscany的 Galatrona Petrolo 2010

96 points Monica Larner, Wine Advocate (208), August 2013:
A massive expression of Merlot, the 2010 Galatrona is heaven-sent. The layers are infinite here spanning dark fruit, spice and chocolate. I fall in love with this wine year after year. The mouth is caressed with stirring complexity and fine tannins that feel silky and smooth. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.

95 points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, August 2012:
Aromas of black olives, violets and fresh fruit follow through to a full body, with a dense palate of dark fruits and olives. Long and polished. Handmade wine. You sense it. Pure Merlot sensation. Try in 2014.

94+ Ian d'Agata, vinous.com, September 2012:
(100% merlot): Full, saturated ruby. Extremely pure aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant, violet, minerals and cocoa. Lush and silky but precise too, with rich, tactile black fruit and mineral flavors lifted by harmonious acidity. The slow-building finish features ripe but very silky tannins and wonderful purity of flavor. A more refined Galatrona than some recent, more tannic versions; cellar it for another four or five years to allow it to build further complexity and depth.

94 points Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, September 2013:
The chocolate and cocoa notes highlight the black cherry, blackberry and pomegranate flavors in this dense red. Flamboyant, showing plenty of oak, this remains vibrant, intense and long, with a spicy aftertaste. Merlot. Best from 2016 through 2026. 500 cases imported.

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.

Juicy red fruits dance on a brooding foundation of licorice, exotic spices, warm cigar wrapper, smoky minerality, and pressed flower petals in this approachable, pretty ’14 Nebbiolo d’Alba. Velvety and caressing, this wine snuggles the palate with chewy tannins, making for an elegant, enjoyable drinking experience. Giacosa sources this wine from old-vine Nebbiolo grown in prestigious vineyards by farmers with whom the estate has longtime relationships; it’s crafted to provide an early-drinking yet aristocratic version of the emblematic Piemonte grape.

產區:Douro Valley, Portugal
品種:Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz

農曆九月圓臍,雌蟹當食,肥美黃膏滿瀉,適宜飲用略帶甜味的酒配合,因為蟹膏帶甜香,選擇乾身酒卻會凸顯苦澀;大閘蟹膏豐油潤滑,輕身酒「不夠斤兩」,兩者互碰,酒會被比下去;選飲紅酒也容易出問題,蟹的鮮味與酒中丹寧衝突,可會湧出腥味。所以,理想的大閘蟹的配酒是具備複雜性和帶甜味的中等酒體酒,Kopke Reserve Tawny Porto 會是不俗的選擇,而且夠貼地!

這支Tawny Port呈茶褐色,從杯頂中心往杯底看,輕帶半點橙紅,而邊緣則已呈淺啡色,這是從紅葡萄酒經過木桶陳釀氧化而成Tawny Port的必經過程。說到其香氣,有較成熟的堅果及乾花等氣味,剛開瓶時,除較明顯「攻鼻」的酒精(20%)外,亦散發陣陣的類同中國黃酒(花雕酒)氣味,芳醇誘人,大閘蟹"醉"愛!

Kopke 成立於1638年,是最古老的波特酒品牌,有近4個世紀的成功經驗。

Biondi Santi Tenuta Greppo Annata Brunello di Montalcino 2011

93 Points Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous, February 2016:

The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Annata is silky, soft and open-knit, especially within the context of what has been the norm at Biondi Santi for the last few decades. Freshly cut flowers, red berries and mint all open up in the glass, but it is the wine's decidedly mid-weight structure that truly stands out. The 2011 is a very rare young Biondi Santi that will drink well pretty much upon release, as shocked as I myself am to write those words. The bright red cherry, raspberry and floral overtones have an almost Nebbiolo-sense of brightness. Drink 2017-2031

93 Points Monica Larner, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate Feb 2016:

Jacopo Biondi Santi was already making wine at Il Greppo when the 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Annata was produced. His father, Franco Biondi Santi, would pass away in 2013 at the age of 91. The winemaking approach is unchanged despite the father to son transition. This wine shows extra richness and texture with focused fruit aromas that are graceful but also powerful. There are hints of ripe fruit with dried cherry and prune buried deep within the bouquet. In the mouth, this Brunello shows good structure and acidity with a slightly denser feel compared to past vintages.

產區:Mosel, Germany

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, April 2017:

The 2015 Riesling Bernkasteler Lay Auslese ** (White Capsule) opens enormously deep, rich, ripe and concentrated on the nose, with smoky/flinty aromas intermixing with perfectly ripe yellow stone fruit and also yeasty flavors form the sur lie aging. On the palate, this is a powerful, rich, creamy textured and very intense killer Riesling of great elegance. Provided with a very long and juicy finish, this is a silky textured and seamless wine that is rich and powerful but perfectly balanced. More than this, it will still be in great shape in 20 or 30 years. (Stephan Reinhardt)

91 points Antonio Galloni's Vinous, June 2017:

This dry-tasting "two-star" bottling is site-typically scented as well as lusciously loaded with lime and ripe cherry. A silken midpalate underlain by wet stone showcases its imposing fruit. The long finish harbors subtle apple seed piquancy and some elusively smoky and black-tea-like impingements for an impression slightly grainier as well as more mineral than the midpalate impression leads one to anticipate. At 12 percent alcohol, this is fuller than a Molitor white label Spätlese, yet still evinces a sense of lift. (David Schildknecht)

Fontalloro Felsina 2012

100% Sangiovese

94 points Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, September 2015:

Dark red cherry, plum, cinnamon and crushed rock nuances flesh out in the 2012 Fontalloro. Next to most of the other wines in the lineup, the 2012 Fontalloro is floral, perfumed, fresh and vibrant, with gorgeous aromatic lift, silky tannins and lovely overall balance. Fontalloro often opens up before Rancia, as is the case today, but the 2012 also possesses more than enough depth to drink well for a number of years. Still, the sexy, radiant finish makes me think most bottles won't be around to make old bones. Put simply, the 2012 Fontalloro is an arrestingly beautiful, showy wine built to please. And please it does.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Oct 2015)

The 2012 Fontalloro (100% Sangiovese) is a stunning expression and delivers the high quality we have come to expect of this celebrated IGT Toscana wine in a less important vintage. Careful work has been done here to ensure the high quality of fruit. The Fontalloro vineyard is located on the border of the Chianti Classico and the Chianti Colli Senesi appellations. Many have called upon Fèlsina to change the wine's status to Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, but technically it can't be because of much of the vineyard is located outside the denomination limits. The bouquet is soft and rich with dark fruit and spice. In the mouth, Fontalloro reveals integrated tannins and acidity. (ML)

94 points Wine Enthusiast (Nov 2015):

 Ripe plum, mature black cherry, violet, clove, mocha, anise and grilled sage are just some of the sensations you'll find on this gorgeous wine alongside velvety tannins. It already has great depth but hold for more complexity. Drink 2017-2027. *Cellar Selection* (KO)

A blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 12 months in French oak, is stunning, simply over-delivering in so many different ways. This wine, which offers up copious quantities, of blueberry, black raspberry and black currant fruit, licorice, graphite and meaty notes, offers fabulous aromatics, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, beautiful, pure texture and a long, heady finish with subtle oak. Whats amazing is the French oak is all two-year-old, super-expensive Darnajou barrels...

Famille Perrin Vinsobres "Les Cornuds" 2011

品種: blend of Grenache and Syrah

88 points Wine Advocate , Robert Parker - 01/02/2014

More serious and endowed with more muscle and richness is the 2011 Perrin Vinsobres Les Cornuds. This wine comes from the very cool northern sector of the Cotes du Rhône appellation, which is a treasure trove for Syrah. The Perrins vinify the Syrah in truncated tanks and then age it in barrel, while the Grenache is fermented and aged in stainless steel, with blending taking place after six months. This beautiful 2011 displays plenty of black cherry fruit and lavender as well as hints of blackberry, licorice and graphite. Medium-bodied, richly fruity and offering loads of perfume, this is a wine to drink over the next several years.

We really like the terroir of Vinsobres, a beautiful village located near Vaison la Romaine; The vineyard is at an altitude of 300m and is situated for the most part on terraces. Vinsobres is particularly suitable for Syrah because it preserves the finesse which is often lost in more southern climates. It develops notes of violet, smoked meat and blackberries. Grenache is also suited to this terroir, full bodied and not heavy, with notes of black chocolate, cherry and typical Garrigue aromas.

Chateau Kirwan 2006 波爾多3級莊 

91 pts Wine Enthusiast: 

The new wood flavors on this wine are becoming well integrated with the velvet fruit textures. The tannins are now an adjunct to the fruit, which shows fresh spice and sweetness. It is becoming a fine, balanced wine, delicate and perfumed.

90 pts Wine Spectator:

There's lovely fruit in this wine, with berry, chocolate and plum aromas and flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. A very balanced Kirwan. Best from 2011 through 2016. 7,080 cases made.

Kaesler The Bogan Shiraz 2012

產區:Barossa, South Australia

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."

Domaine de la Janasse Cotes du Rhone Blanc 2012

90 points Wine Advocate (Oct 2013):

Starting out, the 2012 Cotes du Rhone Blanc is a brilliant, mostly tank-aged blend of 50% Grenache Blanc, 15% Clairette, 15% Bourboulenc and the balance Viognier and Roussanne (which were aged in barrel). Beautiful stuff, with rich white currants, citrus and tinges of minerality on the nose, it has fantastic freshness and focus on the palate, with clean, nicely defined aromas and flavor. Medium-bodied and perfectly balancing richness and freshness, it should be purchased by the case and consumed over the coming year or two. Drink now.

Giacomo Conterno Barbera d'Alba "Cerretta" 2009

Giacomo Conterno Barbera d'Alba "Cerretta" 2009

產區:Alba, Piedmont, Italy

品種:100% Barbera, bottled in June of 2011

91 Points  Antonio Galloni: Deep ruby-red. Pristine, high-pitched aromas of black fruits. Seriously rich, with powerful acidity and strong alcohol giving shape to the almost candied blackberry, black raspberry and cassis flavors. A bit aggressive on the back end but this is a fruit bomb, from a yield of no more than 35 hectoliters per hectare.

91 Points Robert Parker: The 2009 Barbera d'Alba Cerretta is a huge wine bursting with dark red cherries, plums, sweet herbs, rose petal and all sorts of mineral notes. Smoke, ash and tar develop in the glass. The 2009 Cerretta is an intense, virile Barbera that needs at least a few years in bottle to drop some of its baby fat. The richness and depth are impressive considering this is only the second vintage Conterno has made the wine. Mineral notes develop on the finish, but the Cerretta is ultimately more about fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.
