Ridge Lytton Springs 2014 (AG94 WA91)

Hong Kong Price 價錢:
HK$380
United States
HK$380HK$340

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 Fortia Chateauneuf du pape Cuvee de Baron 2015 WS92/WA92/JD92

Hong Kong Price 價錢:
HK$300
Rhone, Chateauneuf du Pape
HK$300HK$260

Chateau Fortia Chateauneuf-du-pape Cuvee de Baron 2015 

Château Fortia is not a winery that chases good press on a whim. These are consistent, classic wines that faithfully represent the region’s terroir year after year. The Cuvée du Baron, which combines 45% Syrah with 40% Grenache, and 15% Mourvedre, was created in the memory of the Domaine’s founder, Baron Le Roy de Boiseaumarie. The wine was first released in 2001.

The wine went through a long, cool fermentation in small lots by varietal, then aged 18 months in old oak foudres prior to bottling. Deep garnet-purple in colour, this is a wine with a dense, complex nose and notes of plum and cassis and garrigue on a medium-bodied palate.

92 pts Wine Spectator:

This has a solid, juicy core of bright cassis, cherry preserves and bergamot, backed by juicy and finely beaded acidity. Light floral incense and dried star anise notes flitter through the background. A light mineral edge guides the finish. Drink now through 2030.

92 pts Wine Advocate:

Cherries and spice mingle easily on the nose of the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Baron, a blend of 45% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 15% Mourvèdre matured in foudre. This full-bodied wine is rich and velvety in texture, with a long, lush, slightly warm finish. It should drink well for up to a decade.

92 pts Jeb Dunnuck :

The two 2015s start with the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée du Baron (no tradition cuvée was presented) and it's a blend of 45% Syrah, 40% Grenache and the rest Mourvèdre brought up all in foudre. Ripe black cherries, framboise, pepper, and garrigue all flow to a nicely balanced, tannic 2015 that has nicely integrated acidity and a solid finish. This is an old-school, classic Châteauneuf-du-Pape that's best forgotten for 3-4 years, and enjoyed over the following decade.

Chateau Lafon Rochet 2012 

波爾多四級莊: 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot

產區:St. Estephe, Bordeaux

90 points James Suckling:

This is extremely floral and flamboyant on the nose for the vintage. Medium to full body, good fruit and a fresh, firm finish. Nicely done. Drink or hold.

90-92 points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (206), April 2013:

The opaque purple-hued 2012 Lafon Rochet reveals plenty of incense, blueberry, black raspberry and spring flower notes intermixed with a hint of forest floor. Rich and medium to full-bodied, it is a complete wine from beginning to end. It may tighten up once it's in bottle, but this wine has 15 or more years of cellaring potential.

This superb effort is a major sleeper of the vintage. Made from a final blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, it boasts 13.5% natural alcohol and was made by Basile Tesseron, whose family owns this chateau as well as the well-known Pontet Canet. Like his uncle Alfred, Basile has moved to biodynamic farming.

86 points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (218), April 2015:

A very soft, consumer-friendly style for a St.-Estèphe, Lafon-Rochet’s 2012 has a dark ruby/purple color, plum, black cherry and cassis fruit, medium body, and a rather superficial and shallow aftertaste. It has its charm and endearing qualities, but is not terribly concentrated or profound. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. Drink 2015-2023

Chateauneuf du Pape, Clos St Jean 2008

【Robert Parker 最鍾意的酒莊之一: Clos St Jean 來自法國隆河谷】

Clos Saint Jean 是在1900年由Edmund Tacussel所建立。現任莊主Pascal 和Vincent Maurel兩兄弟於父親Guy Maurel過世後分工接掌酒莊,以傳承多年的家族技藝,延續了酒莊的好名聲。曾經讚美clos saint jean是南法地區品質水準提升最快速的酒莊的 Robert Parker, 除了不斷給予極高度的評價外,更曾公開宣佈Clos saint Jean是他2011年度最鍾意的四家酒莊之一。

2008年是教皇新堡 (Chateauneuf du pape)的經典年份,但Clos saint Jean 依然釀造出其它酒莊難以置信的超優異水準, 其中酒莊頂級酒款Deus Ex-Machina和Sanctus Sanctorum獲得完美評價,其它酒款亦獲得好評。今日介紹的基本款教皇新堡,由60%Grenache 和Syrah, Mourvedre, 以及極少量的Cinsault, Muscardin, 和Vaccareze 混釀,香氣濃郁,熟莓、花香,酸度適中,單寧平滑,整體平衡,舒服易飲。

90 Points Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate (214), August 2014:

A wine I've had numerous times, the 2008 Chateauneuf du Pape has a Burgundian feel in its black cherry, forest floor, pepper and underbrush-like aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, elegant and seamless, it's a delicious, certainly outstanding wine to drink over the coming 3-5 years. Put this in a blind tasting with top-notch Burgundies and shock your friends. Drink 2014 - 2019

The second wine, the sensational 2005 Croix de Beaucaillou, is the finest example of this cuvee I have ever tasted. Sweet black raspberry and black cherry fruit aromas soar from the glass of this open-knit seductress. A dense ruby/purple color, beautiful full-bodied, lush, expansive flavors, low acidity, and sweet tannin suggest this lovely cuvee should be drunk over the next 12-13 years. It is an amazing sleeper of the vintage!

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.

HK$3,480HK$2,980

Domenico Clerico Barolo "Aeroplanservaj" 2008

這款酒“Aeroplan Servaj”在Piemont方言中表示“像飛機一樣狂野”(wild airplane),暗指莊主Domenico Clerico的成長歷程,因為在其父親的眼中,Clerico自少年起就是一個不安於室的野小子,他個性勇敢,有著天馬行空的想像力,從不畏懼打破故鄉朗格山世代遵守的傳統。Aeroplan Servaj系列擁有6個不同的酒標,每個都有一種airplane之意。所用葡萄產自酒莊位於Serralunga村的租借葡萄園,平均樹齡25歲,佔地1.4公頃,年產量6000瓶。24個木桶陳年(30% new - 70% used)+ 2年瓶內陳年。

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

The 2008 Barolo Aeroplanservaj puts on a whole different act. Here, the emphasis is on elegance and finesse. The opulence and massiveness of the wine fits in with the Clerico philosophy, but unlike the Barolo Briccotto its strongest cards are played with a more subtle strategy. The aromas of black fruit and spice are wrapped a bit tighter, and the wine shows some nervous tension in the glass that needs to soften with age. I loved those delicate sprigs of mint and wild flower that somehow emerge from the inner depths of this rock-solid wine. Terrible mudslides in 2009 damaged the Badarina vineyard in Serralunga d’Alba and Clerico did not produce the Aeroplanservaj that year. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030.

92 points Wine Spectator:

This is fresh and racy, with a base of granular tannins buoying the cherry, menthol and balsamic notes. Long and spicy, this is balanced on the tannic side. Best from 2016 through 2028.

Morey st Denis En La Rue de Vergy, Lignier Michelot 2014 

89-91 Points Burghound.com January 2016:

This vineyard holding sits directly above Grand cru Clos de Tart quite high on the slope bordering Bonnes Mares on the southern Chambolle-Musigny border and Clos des Lambrays on the northern border. The resulting wine shows remarkable energy and dimension. A stunning village wine. “(30% whole cluster). Here there is a menthol note sitting atop the slightly riper yet cool aromas of cassis, violet and plum. The palate impression of the medium-bodied flavors isn’t quite as concentrated but it is finer with really lovely delineation to the mineral -inflected, balanced and lingering finish. Recommended. 

About Lignier Michelot:

The Lignier family have deep roots in the village of Morey Saint Denis and own some of the very best vineyard sites in this village, and also in the 2 neighbouring villages Chambolle Musigny and Gevrey Chambertin. Virgile’s father and grand-father had always produced wine and sold it to negotiants until Virgile started working with his father in the early 1990’s and he decided to sell the wines himself. Now with almost 20 vintages of experience Virgile has moved the domaine to fully organic viticulture and is producing what many believe to be the best wines of this prestigious village. 

In the last few vintages Virgile has modified his winemaking using whole-bunch vinification ranging from 30-100% depending on the vintage and the vineyard and he has also reduced the percentage of new oak for maturation with most wines seeing around 30% making its effect seamless in the final wines. He has also just completed a new winery that now enables him to work with temperature control and to gain a very gentle extraction of tannins for all his wines. This results in wines showing great energy with remarkable perfume and also beautiful fine tannins and very silky structure. They are wines which are often very seductive at a young age which also clearly have the potential for ageing superbly. This very young domaine is now regarded a mong the very best in the Cotes de Nuits.

Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Clos des Issarts Domaine Faiveley 2011, AM90-93/ST91-93,

創立於 1825 年的 Faiveley 是勃根地 Nuits St Georges 的代表性酒商 Negocient,但更像是一家大型的獨立酒莊。Faiveley 本業是生產法國高鐵 TGV 車門的大型企業,這樣的酒廠在Burgundy 幾乎是獨一無二,以大企業的嚴謹管理,幾乎是不計成本來經營。Faiveley 擁有 120 公頃的葡萄園,主要集中在Cote de Nuits 夜丘,自有地monopole的比例高達 80%。

目前由第七代 Erwan Faiveley 經營,2004 年禮聘原 Bouchard Pere & Fils 釀酒總管 Bernard Hervet 加入,改變原來需要時間柔化的嚴肅印象,創造出不同以往的Faiveley全新風格,年輕時展現出細膩誘人姿態,亦可陳年很久。

今日介紹呢支係 Gevrey Chambertin村的一級田Monopole "Clos des Issarts" , 面積僅0.6 ,位處Grand Cru特級田 Ruchottes-Chambertin旁邊,葡萄酒大師 Jasper Morris MW 稱讚此田 : "the vineyard makes a delightfully fine-boned style of premier cru Gevrey". 質量拍得住特級田。因為面積幾乎是此村最細的一塊,年產只有幾千支。

16個月40-50%新法國橡木桶,另外50-60%1年舊桶。酒莊建議陳年7-12年,現在已進入適飲期。

 90-93 pts Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (49), January 2013

There is an appealing freshness to the cherry, raspberry, truffle and earth-infused nose that even has an interesting if odd hint of citrus peel to it. There is excellent richness and volume to the punchy middle weight flavors that display fine depth and length on the mineral-laden finish. This is first rate and one of the better young examples of this wine that I have had.

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.

Robert Parker's Top 3 Greatest Value Wines of the Year: #2 @ 2013, #3 @2016

91 POINTS, ROBERT PARKER - 2015 Vintage

"A steal that I’ve been recommending for a number of years is the 2015 Botani Moscatel Old Vines. Totally dry and made from vines planted in 1946, 1968 and 1975, from the incredibly steep slate and quartz hillsides of Malaga, this is fermented with wild yeasts in stainless steel, where it’s aged and bottled after eight months sur lie. An incredibly gorgeous flowery bouquet alone would be reason to spend the $18.00 for this medium-bodied, super-fragrant and seductive, crisp, elegant wine. The old vines, the beautiful floral notes and stunning, delicate tropical fruits that the Muscat of Alexandria varietal (the oldest clone in the Muscat family) produces, are just something to behold. Not meant for aging, but for drinking in its first year of life, so take advantage of it. For those interested: this is fermented in total stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and bottled early to preserve its incredible aromatics."

Botani Moscatel Old Vines is a truly unique dry white wine, made from Moscatel de Alejandría grapes. It is the product of a rigorous selection process in which only the best Moscatel vines, located on the north-facing mountainside slopes around the town of Almáchar are used. These vineyards are situated on partially decomposed red slate mixed with white quartz. The scant topsoil is punctuated by outcroppings of the bedrock. Because of the steep incline of the vineyards, the grapes are manually harvested into small 10-kilogram boxes, carried to the winery by mules.

Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino 2007

95 points Wine Enthusiast:

This 2007 Brunello is a big, opulent pleasure bomb with lavish layers, loaded thickly on top of each other: Chocolate fudge, dark cherry, blackberry preserves, rum cake, prune, exotic spice, pipe tobacco, cola, hummus and leather. It shows huge personality, intensity and staying power too. All that density is backed by solid tannins and a steady firmness. Hold 10–15 more years. Editors' Choice

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino bursts from the glass with freshly cut flowers, violets, leather, licorice and black cherries. Firm underlying tannins lend vibrancy to the voluptuous fruit. The Casanova di Neri straight bottling – sometimes referred to as the “white label” – is made from some of the estate’s cooler sites. In 2007 the wine has more depth, fruit and overall harmony than is typically the case. Bright acidity frames the long, polished finish. In short, this is a fabulous wine from Giacomo Neri. Along with the 2006, the 2007 is one the best and most complete vintages I can remember tasting in some time. Most importantly of all, though, it is flat-out delicious. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.

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.

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.

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

The 2011 Ducru Beaucaillou (which normally represents 1/3 to ½ of the entire crop) possesses a dense ruby/purple color along with a beautiful nose of sweet creme de cassis, crushed rock and spring flower aromas. This rich, medium to full-bodied St.-Julien is among the most concentrated wines of the Medoc. Moderate tannin is sweet and well-integrated. This beauty will benefit from 3-5 years of cellaring and keep for two decades. Drink 2017 - 2037.

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

This isn't quite as good as the 2010 and 2009 Ducrus, but it's not far behind: a concentrated, yet very polished St Julien from the lowest yields ever at the château. Sweet and intense, with hauntingly floral aromas, notes of cassis, plums and currant, fresh acidity and rich, yet silky tannins leading to a bright, refreshing finish. Powerful yet restrained, this is a keeper. 15+ years.

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

This sweet white is quite oily, with dried-pineapple and mango character. It's full-bodied, very sweet and juicy on finish. Thick and rich. Drink now or hold.

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.

From the brilliant proprietor Stephan von Neipperg, the 2010, a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc that hit 15% natural alcohol, is ripe and intense but exhibits good minerality and freshness as well as lots of blueberry and blackberry fruit, with hints of charcoal, licorice and asphalt. Rich and full-bodied, with no hard edges, this wine should drink beautifully for 10 or more years. 

The good news for consumers is that there are over 11,500 cases of this wine, which was produced from the plateau of Saint Philippe d'Aiguilhe, planted on pure limestone and clay.

This is so good already. What an amazing precision of fruit for this wine, with a blackberry and blueberry character as well as minerals. Full and super silky with lovely fruit. Gourmand. Tasty. I want to drink it. Always great value!

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.

90 pts Wine Spectator:

This shows cut and definition to the floral, peach and citrus flavors, offset by a hint of richness in the texture. In the end, this leans toward the acidity, presenting a clean, lemony aftertaste. Drink now through 2021.

87-89 pts Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (63), June 2016:

**Note: a monopole belonging to Faiveley**
A wonderfully fresh nose features notes of melon, straw, apple and a hint of wood toast. I like the punch and detail of the nicely textured flavors that possess a subtle but refreshing salinity on the smoky and balanced finale. This should reward a few years of cellaring if desired.

CastelGiocondo Brunello di Montalcino 2009

品種:100% Sangiovese

94 points James Suckling - "Wonderful depth and richness to this wine for 2009. It's full-bodied, with a clean, polished tannin texture and a long, long finish. Last for minutes on the palate. A triumph for the vintage."

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. This is a strong showing from Frescobaldi."

Gaja/Pieve Santa Restituta Brunello di Montallcino 2009

Hong Kong Price 價錢:
HK$500
Italy, Tuscany
HK$500HK$480

Gaja/Pieve Santa Restituta Brunello di Montallcino 2009

deally drink now through to 2025. Decant for 2 hours. 

The deep ruby colour promises a classic wine of superb quality. The nose backs up that promise with intense aromas of cherry, ripe black fruits, herbs and a slight earthiness. The palate provides intense flavours of black and red fruits, spices, herbs and wildflowers. The wine is well structured, has great acidity which marries perfectly with the ripe tannins. The lingering finish provides a closing offer of rich chocolate at the end. 

Match this with rich beef dishes, venison, game, roasted meats and strong cheese. 

The winery’s attention to detail when making its wines are what makes this wine so good. The hand harvested grapes are fermented in stainless steel vats for four weeks. It is then aged in new and old oak barriques for 12 months followed by a further 12 months in bottle prior to release. 

The Gaja family acquired the Pieve Santa Restituta estate in 1994. It is situated in the south west of the Brunello di Montalcino appellation, and comprises of 40 acres of vineyards. The name comes from the church of Santa Restituta which is located on the estate. It has been beautifully restored by the family and it now forms the subject of the wine labels. 

The family has now also obtained a further 25 acres in the north east of the appellation and has developed a state of the art winemaking facility and below ground cellar which reduces the impact on the environment – a subject very close to the family’s heart.

La Magia Brunello di Montalcino 2012 

產區:Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy

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.

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.

Champagne Duval Leroy Brut Reserve NV

產區:Champagne

品種:Chardonnay, Pinot Noir

Duval Leroy is one of the only independent and family owned prestige Champagne houses left in the famous region, and this personal investment in the house's wines results in truly spectacular Champagne's. This non vintage Brut has a wonderful full-bodied nature with a rich, creamy mousse supported with great lemon and lime zest. A delicious effervescence continues on the long and elegant finish.

91 Points Wine Spectator: 

A fresh, finely knit version that meshes a silky mousse and delicate acidity with a subtle flavor range, including rich hints of toasted brioche, blackberry, spun honey, lemon zest and smoked almond. A fine aperitif in terms of weight and balance, but in a slightly richer style. Drink now through 2020.

91 Points Wine & Spirits :

This delivers a lot of fresh fruit through the lush feel of its bubbles, bringing scents of raspberry, plum and juicy pear up out of the glass. For all its generosity, the wine follows a clean, crisp line. It’s a fine aperitif to serve with saucisson.
