N3 d'Angelus 2013 金鐘三牌

When the Château Angélus philosophy of excellence is applied to a selection of young vines on the estate, No. 3 d’Angélus results. Blended with 85 to 90% Merlot, this wine is made for instant enjoyment as soon as it is delivered from the winery. It is fruity, round and elegant; a streamlined version of its illustrious “parents”, which gives consumers something to drink while they wait for the number of years necessary for the main wine and its majestic second to reach their respective peaks. The vines used to grow No. 3 d’Angélus are cultivated with the same care as those used to make its elders and their fruit is vinified with the same precision. The yields are larger and the wine is aged for a shorter period with no recourse to new wood: only one- or two-year-old barrels are used. No. 3 d’Angélus is an easy-going, attractive wine, which gives its all when very young and can yet benefit from being kept for five to eight years.

Chateau Chasse-Spleen 2010 忘憂堡 超級中級莊

Chateau Chasse-Spleen 2010 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

La Spinetta Moscato d'Asti Bricco Quaglia 2017

產區:Piedmont 

品種:100% Moscato Bianco, from Bricco Quaglia. Exposure south 300 m s.l.m.

Italy’s first single vineyard Moscato d’Asti! From a 20ha plot of 25-30 year old vines grown in calcareous and sandy soils. Moscato Bricco Quaglia, brilliant peach and pear, remarkably refreshing...

No one makes a better, slightly sparkling Moscato than La Spinetta. They offer multiple single vineyard offerings, all of which are usually outstanding. A soft, rich version, offering a gentle mousse and flavors of rose, fresh grape and mint.

Winemaker Notes: Yellow color with green reflections. Sweet and sexy, dried apricots and crisp pineapple this wine surprises with its remarkable freshness and brilliant fruit flavors, bright acidity and a zingy finish drink young. Outstanding balance and a light sparkle make this traditionally dessert wine an appropriate choice for an aperitif or a refreshing splash with brunch.

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.

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

92 Points Antonio Galloni, December 2015: 

Voerzio's 2013 Langhe Nebbiolo is another terrific example of the year. Striking aromatics give the 2013 much of its lifted personality. Sweet red cherries, crushed flowers, mint, citrus and white pepper are all beautifully sculpted throughout. This is an especially delicate wine that impresses with its poise and freshness.

Castello dei Rampolla “Sammarco” 2011

Region: Chianti, Toscana, Italy

95 pts James Suckling (Aug 2015):

Aromas of tar, chilis, raspberries and dark chocolate follow through to a full body with super velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Need three years to soften. Another superb blend of sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon from the organic estate in Panzano.

94 pts Wine Advocate (Oct 2015):

The fullness and generosity here is absolutely amazing. The 2011 Sammarco is one of the protagonists of this vintage. In fact, I think Sammarco represents the hot 2011 growing season better than any other wine from the Chianti Classico area. The bend this year is 94% Sangiovese with 6% Merlot (the breakdown between the two grapes is usually 90-10) and the wine is fermented with ambient yeasts. The bouquet is beautifully redolent of dark berry fruit, soft spice, licorice and cola. The wine's overall elegance and length are both impressive.

95 pts Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, October 2015:

The 2011 Sammarco is so youthful it almost tastes like a barrel sample! Dark, rich and inviting, the 2011 possesses notable concentration and depth, with round yet powerful tannins and a surprising level of freshness for the year. A host of black cherry, graphite, smoke, plum and lavender notes accompany the powerful finish. It will be quite some time before the 2011 is ready to drink, but there is plenty to look forward to.

SENA 2014 ( 375ml )

Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Carmenere,11% Malbec, 8% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot

97 points James Suckling:

Complex aromas of blueberry, rose petal, licorice, and currant. Full body, ultra fine tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Balanced and very refined. A wonderful purity and beauty. Give it three to four years to come together but already a beauty.

95 points Wine Advocate:

The blend for the 2014 Sena was 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Carmenere, 11% Malbec, 8% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot from their stony soils. The different grapes are carefully fermented separately and with different regimes of maceration and extraction but always looking for elegance within the natural power of the zone. The final blend was transferred to French oak barrels, 67% of them new (a percentage that seems to be slowly going down), for the elevage of 22 months. This time, some 5% of the volume carried out its aging in new Stockinger foudres. This is very much in line with the 2013 and the direction set by that cool year. The wine is very harmonious, elegant within the house style. Another superb vintage of Sena. This should age effortlessly in bottle. 60,000 bottles were filled in March 2016.

Macon Verze Domaine Leflavie 2015

產區: Macon Verze
品種: Chardonnay

這款酒呈黃綠色,香氣乾淨純美,帶有奶油香,口感飽滿,微微蜂蠟的味道,酸度新鲜清爽,整體精致有趣。

Allen Meadows: "An overtly fruity nose of yellow orchard fruit with a floral top note leads to nicely rich, round and generous flavors that possess good mid-palate flesh and an interesting hint of strawberry on the delicious finale. This is built on its fruit yet it is not without its attractions."

Domaine Leflaive produces magnificent wines, the hallmark of which is loyalty to and typicity of individual terroir. The wines have personality and extraordinary purity – perfect ambassadors for the domaine's belief in biodynamic viticulture. At the heart of the biodynamic philosophy is the individual treatment of vines by plant-based compounds, according to a strict timetable, governed by the lunar cycle. Pesticides and chemicals have long been confined to the past under the late Anne-Claude stewardship, she started biodynamic experiments in the early nineties, and the practices were fully endorsed from 1997. The prime motivation initially was concern about the sustainability of the land but the rewards have extended far beyond the vineyards, which have thrived, to very obvious improvements in quality in the finished wines – a welcome and unexpected bonus.

Chateau d'Armailhac 2014

94 points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2017:

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.

91 points James Molesworth (Wine Spectator), Wine Spectator, February 2017:

Fresh and pure, but not shy on depth, offering an ample core of cassis and blackberry purée flavors. There's a fine chalky minerality throughout, but overall the structure is polished. Anise and spice notes add range. Best from 2018 through 2028.

Barbaresco Produttori del Barbaresco 2012 產區: Piedmont, Italy 品種: 100% Nebbiolo 93 Points Wine Spectator - "A graceful and detailed red, marked by ripe cherry, strawberry, floral and tar flavors, with the fruit intensity persisting on the finish, showing excellent length. This is well-integrated and just needs time for the tannins to soften. Best from 2018 through 2030." 92 Points Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "A big, powerful wine, the 2012 Barbaresco hits the palate with surprising depth allied to nervous tannins that are going to need time to soften. Tobacco, smoke, licorice, menthol, game and a host of dark, ferrous notes give the wine much of its virile personality. The 2012 is not as finessed as some recent vintages, yet it offers considerable potential for the future. Most importantly, it is a terrific value at a time when well-priced Barbaresco is increasingly hard to find. In 2012, the Produttori did not bottle their Riservas. When that happens, the straight Barbaresco is often an overachiever. That is certainly the case here, as the 2012 offers outstanding quality for the money, with plenty of potential for the future. I can't think of too many wines that deliver this much pleasure and value."

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.

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.

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.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Jun 2013):

One notch down on the intensity ladder is the 2009 Barolo Ciabot Mentin. Less obvious and definitely more flirtatious, this gorgeous wine playfully dangles subtle hints of licorice, dark fruit, anisette and Middle Eastern spice in front of your nose. They morph and transform into something new and unexpected with each swirl of the glass. There’s enough flesh here to keep the wine grounded, but there’s also enough tonic freshness to keep it from feeling heavy.

93 points James Suckling (Jan 2014):

A beautiful ripeness of fruit here with dried strawberries and sliced mushroom aromas. Full body, with polished and round tannins and a cedar, mahogany and dried berry aftertaste. Needs at least two or three years of bottle age.

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (April 2014):

Medium red. Less roasted than the Briccotto, offering aromas and flavors of cherry, mocha, coffee and spices. Less fat and full in the mouth but shows more lift and energy. A bit youthfully clenched, but the wine's firm tannic spine and impressive length suggest it will be a beauty with a few years of aging. Despite being situated at high altitude, these are the first Barolo vines Clerico picks. The acidity here is a very healthy 6.3 grams per liter.

92 points Wine Spectator:

A fresh, vibrant red, whose eucalyptus, tea, cherry and leather notes are backed by dense, ripe tannins. Balanced on the firm side, with a coating of dusty tannins on the long finish. Give this some time. Best from 2017 through 2032.

18/20 points Jancis Robinson (Jun 2013):

Commune of Monforte d’Alba. Concentrated ruby with orange tinges. Balsamic fruitcake and cardamom skin. Fine cherry fruit with a layer of coating tannins. Intense, long and with a hint of vanilla. Quite spectacular and modernist but executed with huge skill.

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.

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.

".....I noticed the Chinese love to have both a sweet wine and a vintage port at the end of a meal, which is pretty much over-kill for me. However, I was blown away by the 2003 Taylors vintage port."

98+ points Wine Advocate (161), October 2005:

The 2003 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port improved each time I raised it to my nose or mouth. It displays a black color and a salty, graphite-laced nose packed with sweet black fruits that is reminiscent of a stellar vintage of Chateau Latour. With air, notes of molasses, burnt sugar, spices, and jammy plums emanate from the glass. Full-bodied, hugely dense, immensely rich, as well as thick, this behemoth is also amazingly balanced and harmonious. Raisins, molasses, licorice, black cherries, plums, and a distinctive note of violets are found in its complex, seamless character. Its interminable finish reveals additional notes of chocolate, kirsch, red as well as black currants, dark cherries, and rose blossoms. Armed with exceptional power, depth, and purity, this Taylor will proudly stand shoulder to shoulder with the finest ever crafted by the Fladgate Partnership. Projected maturity: 2035-2060.

Vacqueyras Cuvee de L'Hostellerie, Domaine La Garrigue 2010

Age of vines: 40-60 years. Aging: 18 months in concrete tank.

品種:75% Grenache, 25% Syrah

91 Points Wine Advocate: Traditionally brought up with no concessions to modern winemaking, although it exhibits a touch of vanillin, indicating that some of the Syrah may have been aged in new oak, it is a youthful black/purple-colored wine with elegance, dense, full-bodied power, blackberry, cassis, kirsch and loamy soil notes intermixed with lavender and spice box. This superb, beautifully textured, pure, slightly structured Vacqueyras will benefit from 1-2 years of cellaring, and keep for 10-12 years.

Saturated ruby. Exotic floral aromas of black raspberry and cherry, with a note of pungent herbs in the background. Stains the palate with intense dark berry and floral pastille flavors enlivened by juicy acidity. The floral quality carries through the long, seamless finish, which shows impressive intensity and focus. -Vinous

 96pts Wine Spectator : 
There's a lot going on here, with a big core of yellow apple, white peach and wet straw notes offset by accents of citrus oil and bitter almond. A hint of brioche shows on the finish, but this is decidedly stony in feel at the end. The elements should meld beautifully with cellaring. Best from 2016 through 2026. 

 91 pts Jeb Dunnock(eRobertParker.com) :
The 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc incorporates slightly less Grenache Blanc than normal and has more Bourboulenc and Picpoul in the blend. As always, it didn’t go through malolactic fermentation and was raised all in stainless steel. Hitting 13.6% natural alcohol, its medium-gold color is followed by lots of apple, lemon curd and citrus-like fruit characteristics that give way to more spice, toast and minerality with time in the glass. Vibrant, fresh and borderline racy, while not being lean, it’s an outstanding white that will benefit from a year in bottle and have a graceful evolution for another decade or more. As I commented in my recent retrospective article, Clos des Pape is one of the reference point estates for traditional, age-worthy Châteauneuf du Pape.

Chateau Marquis de Terme 2009 

波爾多四級莊 

94 points James Suckling (July 2012):

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

93 points Decanter (July 2012):

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

90 points Wine Spectator :

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