Chateau de Saint Cosme Gigondas Valbelle 2009 (WS94)

Blend: 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah

#10 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

94 Wine Spectator : A gorgeous wine, with an interplay of ripe, dripping blackberry, cassis and plum sauce flavors providing the flesh, offset by smoldering charcoal, tobacco and bittersweet cocoa notes, which provide the angles. The long finish has nice intensity. Best from 2012 through 2022. 1,175 cases made.

Winemaker notes: We didn't release Valbelle in 2008 because the wine had been blended into the Gigondas Classique. This is nice to see Valbelle coming back in 2009 with its very specific style. It generates complexity, depth and balance. 2009 Valbelle combines well the tannic power of the vintage with the roundness and the softness always found in Valbelle. Find notes of strawberry, thyme, white pepper and graphite.

Fattoria Le Pupille SAFFREDI 2011

*James Suckling: "A must-buy for super Tuscan lovers"* 

近10年冒升得最快的意大利酒莊是Fattoria Le Pupille (位於Tiscana Maremma, 著名酒村Bolgheri以南),她的旗艦酒 Saffredi 更從2010年起獲得James Suckling 及 Wine Advocate 等酒評家/機構大讚(分數如下),成為super super Tuscan 新的一員。難道此酒是突然好飲? 非也! 女莊主Elisabetta Geppetti 在80年代中,二十歲時便接管她老爺的小酒莊Le Pupille。1987年釀出第一支酒,以仙遊的老爺"Fredi"命名的 "SAFFREDI"。第一個年份,1990年在市場售賣時,super Tuscan 教父, Giacomo Tachis被這款100% Cabernet Sauvignon 新酒吸引,便從旁指導。93年開始酒莊慢慢加入Merlot, Petit Verdot, 及Syrah 混釀。及至2000年,酒莊迎來了波爾多一級莊Latour 的釀酒師Christian Sommer加入,經過10年的努力,及逐漸降低新木桶比例(現在75%新),Saffredi 表現出了地道風味的Bordeaux Blend。 今日介紹【Saffredi 2011年】JS95/WA93/AG92/vivino4.3(457酒評), 年產僅27000支(拉菲的十份之一),特價$560,比2012-2015年份便宜20%-30%, 歡迎Mix。

95 pts James Suckling (2014): I love the aromas of black truffles, rosemary, dark fruits, rose petals and stones. It's shows so many characteristics of Tuscany on the nose. Full body with super-fine tannins and a long finish. Tannins and all in place. Wonderful texture. Better in 2016 but hard not to drink now. 60% cabernet sauvignon, 35% merlot and 5% syrah.

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.

HK$450HK$400

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.

Wonderful aromas of spices and berries. Chili powder with plums. Chinese spices. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and delicious fruit. Pretty tannin and fruit tension. Drink or hold.

90 Points Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, March 2016:

Azelia's 2012 Barolo is fresh, floral and nicely lifted in the glass. Crushed flowers, sweet red cherries, spices, mint and rose petal lift from the glass in the 2012 Barolo. An excellent choice for drinking over the next handful of years, Azelia's straight Barolo is all about balance and understated harmony. The style is gracious, perfumed and weightless, with pretty saline notes that give the wine its sense of proportion. This is one of the best straight 2012 Barolos I tasted. Fruit sources are 70% Serralunga and 30% Castiglione Falletto. The 2012 spent two and a half years in cask. Hail was an issue in Bricco Voghera, so Azelia did not produce a Riserva. All the best fruit went into the straight Barolo.

2010年是難得的靚年,呈現著深紅色澤,散發出野花、礦石、果香氣息。入口後煙燻、皮革、辛香味,酒體平衡、圓潤濃郁。

*91pts Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (45), January 2012* :

Note: from a mix of Brochon vines planted between 1922 and 1961 that average 60+ years of age; in 2010 this has the Les Jeunes Rois fruit in it.

A gorgeously complex and lightly spiced nose serves up notes of violet, plum and plenty of pungent earth that is also reflected by the dense and serious medium-bodied flavors. There is excellent volume and concentration to the mid-palate that possesses impeccable phenolic ripeness, all wrapped in a seductive yet linear finish. This is very Gevrey in character with a brawny yet not overtly rustic mouth feel. Recommended.

John Duval Plexus SGM 2014 #34 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2016 The Shiraz was sourced from old vineyards in the Tanunda, Krondorf and Ebenezer districts, Grenache from the Tanunda and Ebenezer region, and Mourvèdre from the Light Pass region. A true reflection of Barossa’s soil and climate, Plexus expresses complex aromas and flavors combining red and dark fruits with savory notes. The palate is framed by youthful fine tannins and subtle savory French oak adds structure and complexity. 93 Points Wine Spectator: "A sophisticated, spicy mix of date bread, cherry compote and clove flavors. Plump and velvety, with persistence and harmony on the finish. Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2026." 92 Points The Wine Advocate: "Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Plexus (a Shiraz, Grenache. Mourvèdre blend) is a little youthfully reticent, offering glimpses at black raspberry and mulberry aromas plus licorice, cracked black pepper, earth and lavender. Medium to full-bodied and still very primary in the mouth, it has a great intensity of red and black fruit flavors supported by ripe, rounded tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and spicy."

品種:60% Cab Sau, 40% Merlot 

93 points Monica Larner, Wine Advocate (219), June 2015:

Beautiful and bold, the 2013 Guidalberto is one of the best editions of this wine ever made. It shows great energy and momentum with dark fruit, spice, tobacco and black truffle that come together with impeccable unity. I love the heft and power that supports this wine at the back. Its tannic structure is firm but velvety and will continue to soften as the wine evolves over the next few years. I would suggest holding onto this bottle for three to four more years before popping the cork.

意大利名莊Sassicaia的副牌酒又名「西施小教堂」的 Guidalberto,其著名的正牌酒Sassicaia質素絕對能跟法國一級名莊酒媲美。Guidalberto 屬於” Super Tuscan” 派別,即不隸屬意大利葡萄酒官方DOCG分級制度,因為DOCG分級制定所有葡萄酒需以本土葡萄Sangiovese釀造,而Tenuta San Guido酒引進法國葡萄品種Cabernet Sauvignon及Merlot進行釀製。

1940年代,Tenuta San Guido創立人Mario Incisa della Rocchetta 到過波爾多的Graves產區 (Graves法語亦譯作石頭,代表當地的土壤),認為兩地土壤相似故認為可以引入 Cabernet Sauvignon,毅然決定將葡萄品種從慣常的Sangiovese及Nebbiolo移到Cabernet Sauvignon ,把握酒莊名為 Sassicaia 從意大利文譯作”石頭”的故事。

La Petite Eglise (2nd label of Ch. Eglise Clinet) 2011

產區: Pomerol, Bordeaux

品種: 100% Merlot
La Petite Eglise 是波爾多 Pomerol 區著名酒莊 Chateau l’Eglise-Clinet 的副牌,個性與風味近似於正牌 l’Eglise-Clinet。酒中帶有優美圓熟的莓果、泥土與樹皮芬芳,中度飽滿,單寧堅實,可即飲。

1882 年時,現任莊主 Denis Durantou 的曾曾祖父將當時 Clos de l’Eglise 與 Domaine de Clinet 兩家的葡萄園合併,創立了 Chateau l’Eglise-Clinet。時至今日,葡萄園面積約有 5.5 公頃,不過真正釀造l’Eglise-Clinet的僅有3.5公頃,其餘的全釀成副牌 La Petite Eglise 出售。園內種植了許多老樹,平均年齡約45年,有 85% 的 Merlot 及15 % 的 Cabernet Franc 葡萄。

近幾年l’Eglise-Clinet 已成功躍升為 Pomerol 精英酒莊之列,除了坐落於緩坡上,土壤及地理條件相當優秀外,Denis Durantou 對葡萄園悉心照料與崇尚自然的釀酒技術亦是l’Eglise-Clinet 成功的主因之一。(他將大部分的時間花在照料葡萄園,釀酒方法相當簡單。) Chateau l’Eglise-Clinet 的風格圓滑多汁、是有著豐富濃郁果味的 Pomerol 紅酒。  網址: www.denis-durantou.com

Only 850 cases was produced in 2011, aged in 50% new oak.

89-91 Points Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, April 2012

The Deuxieme Vin of La Petite Eglise is pure Merlot picked on 16th September that is aged in 50% new barrels. It has a refined bouquet with pure blackberry and raspberry with well-integrated creamy new oak that does not impede upon the fruit profile. With time it offers a touch of cedar that is very attractive. The palate is medium-bodied with impressive balance and a silky smooth texture. It has some oak to subsume so it will need 3-4 years in bottle, though it does not have the tension or persistency one can find in the 2009 or 2010. Still, this is very fine and probably will be good value. Tasted April 2012.

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

The second wine of L'Eglise Clinet is better than many châteaux's top wines in 2011. This is extremely fine and aromatic, more open than it often is at such a young age, with sweet fruitcake and red cherries on the palate, filigree tannins and a classy, perfumed finish. It's denser than it seems at first, and should age well. 10+ years.

Italy, Piedmont
HK$290HK$260

Mascarello Giuseppe E Figlio Barbera d'Alba "Scudetto"  2011

產區:Piedmont, Italy 品種:100% Barbera

Appellation: Barbera D'Alba

Vineyard: The Scudetto vineyard is within the hamlet of Perno in Monforte d'Alba at 300m in elevation.

Orientation: West, northwest 300m in elevation.

Soil: Clayey-sandy, composed of brown clay and grey sand of marine origin, with the presence of pebbles and small skeletal particles.

Viticulture: Harvested in the first two weeks of October. Vinification: Traditional-style, floating cap fermentation for 15/20 days. These estate-grown grapes are harvested from 60/70-year-old vines with low yields. Aging: The wine is then matured in French oak for approximately 18 months. Notes: The vineyard is named so because its' shape is that of a shield. The Italian soccer championship is also called the Scudetto.

Wine Advocate (Galloni): Proprietor Mauro Mascarello makes some of the most compelling, traditional wines in Piedmont. Mascarello’s signature Barolo, Monprivato, rarely shows well when young, yet it has a proven ability to transform magically in the bottle, something I have witnessed first-hand with more vintages than I can remember. The irony is that by the time the wines start showing well they are long gone from the market or have appreciated dramatically in price.

漫畫《神之水滴》有這樣的一段描述:四處飄盪着甜美、富官能刺激又有民族特色的香氣。深夜裏,眼前是各式各樣的香料,還有不同的肉類和成熟的水果,黑醋栗、李子、黑櫻桃,還有少許橙。穿着性感服裝的舞蹈員,以洋槐和金銀花的花瓣裝飾頭髮和身體。

90 points The Wine Advocate: The 2013 Cotes du Rhone Les Deux Albions is 50-60% Syrah and the rest Grenache and other permitted varieties. It exhibits classic Syrah character with its sweet dark fruits, pepper, wood smoke and crushed rock-like minerality. Medium to full-bodied, it bucks the vintage stereotype and has a rounded, supple texture, good concentration and plenty of length. Possibly outstanding, it should have a decade of longevity. 

Winemaker Notes: Co-fermented in concrete vats as usual, it develops a good density, good color and a length that is usual of a great vintage. 80% of the cuvée was aged in concrete vats, which help to create the best expression. Its fruit full of terroir develops and shows characteristics of gingerbread, strawberries and violets.

91 pts Robert Parker :
"A blend of 75% Merlot and the balance Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, this up-and-coming estate has fashioned an outstanding 2006. While not as prodigious as the 2005, it is an exceptional effort boasting a dense purple hue as well as sweet aromas of blueberries, dark raspberries, licorice, camphor, and pain grille. Full-bodied, powerful, and layered with impressive purity, texture, and length, this unfined and unfiltered wine should be at its finest between 2013-2022."

01 pts Stephen Tanzer:
"Full ruby-red. High-pitched aromas of cassis, blackberry, violet, licorice and menthol. Intense, pure and sharply delineated, with a juicy, lively quality to the black fruit, violet and menthol flavors. Surprisingly dense and ripe for such a penetrating wine. Finishes with chewy, ripe tannins and lovely aromatic persistence. I'd give this three or four years in the cellar."

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.

Mondot (2nd Wine of Troplong Mondot) 2005

產區:Saint Emilion, Bordeaux 

品種:90 % Merlot, 5 % Cabernet Franc, 5 % Cabernet Sauvignon 

Mondot 2005 是 Troplong Mondot的副牌, 平均數齡35年,05年產量僅11000支。

2005年是酒莊的傳奇年份,正牌Troplong Mondot得到Robert Parker 100分。

In 1985, Troplong Mondot's policy of searching for new levels of quality in its wine led to the introduction of added rigor in the selection process for its top wine. This resulted in the birth of the estate's «Other Wine», Mondot, which over the ensuing years has become established as a great growth in its own right with its hallmark elegance and silky tannins.

89 Points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (219), June 2015:

The second wine of Troplong Mondot, Christine Valette’s 2005 Mondot is noteworthy. Dense plum/ruby/purple in color, its new saddle leather, plum, soy and balsamic notes are followed by a medium to full-bodied, luscious, soft, silky textured wine. It is rich, fleshy and best drunk over the next 7-8 years. Drink: 2015 - 2023

94 pts Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate (229), February 2017:
The careful selection of the grapes and the work directives even for the purchased grapes has clearly paid off in the 2013 Alión, which has great freshness and perfume. It was cropped from a relatively normal growing season, but with a cold September with some rains that provoked a slight delay in the picking and especially the seed for a severe sorting of the grapes. It's considered a challenging vintage in general, and the bottles produced are slightly less than in the healthier 2012. It's always pure Tempranillo from over 30-year-old vines in different villages: Pesquera, Padilla, Moradillo... It fermented in oak vats with indigenous yeasts after a three-day cold soak, followed by malolactic and 12-14 months in new French barriques. It might be a lighter vintage for Alión, but one that has a subtler profile and harmony. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, with a thread of acidity going through its core and lifting it up. An elegant Alión. 260,000 bottles and some larger formats were filled in May 2015.

Hong Kong Price 價錢:
HK$360

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.

Guidalberto, Tenuta San Guido 2011

品種:60% Cab Sau, 40% Merlot 

93 points Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, March 2013:

Mocha, espresso, plums and cloves form a highly expressive mosaic of aromas and flavors in the 2011 Guidalberto. Wonderfully open and seductive, the 2011 captures the essence of Bolgheri in a style that is resonant and super sensual. Silky tannins make the 2011 impossible to resist today. San Guido hit it out of the park with the 2011 Guidalberto.

92 points Monica Larner, Wine Advocate (208), August 2013:

Made with Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot, the 2011 Guidalberto opens to dark, rich concentration and beautiful aromatic intensity. You really feel the weight and importance of the wine thanks to its shapely aromas of dark fruit, plum, spice and bitter chocolate. The mouthfeel is incredibly supple and the rich density is long lasting. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.

Clos des Lunelles 2010

品種:Merlot , Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon.

91 Points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (205), February 2013:

One of the bigger, more tannic and powerful wines of the vintage, although it is only 14.4% alcohol, which puts it well below some of the blockbusters in the Cotes de Castillon, this wine exhibits wonderfully pure black raspberry, black cherry and graphite notes intermixed with hints of cedar and licorice, in a medium to full-bodied, slightly softer and less extracted style than usual. This is another sleeper of the vintage that should drink nicely for up to a decade.

92 Points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, June 2013:

Wonderful nose of blueberries and clay with dark berries. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and a very refined and tight tannin structure. Love the quality. Long finish.

92 Points Jeff Leve, The Wine Cellar Insider, March 2013:

Licorice, truffle, jammy dark berries and chocolate open to a plush, polished, rich wine of pleasure. This will drink well young.

Clarendon Hills Onkaparinga Grenache 2007 **This wine forms part of Clarendon Hills Grand Cru classification. 94 points James Halliday: “While the colour is slightly more developed than the ’07 Kangarilla Grenache, here the wine is in balance; spice and red berry aromas are followed by a complex palate, adding a touch of forest to the overall expression. 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

Vina Tondonia Reserva Lopez de Heredia 2005

品種: 70% Tempranillo, 20% 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 2005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。2005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。

96 pts Decanter: Traditional Rioja at its ageworthy best, the Tondonia red is a cuvee of Tempranillo with 20% Garnacha and 5% each of Graciano and Mazuelo. Leafy, gamey and sweet, with tangy acidity and a volatile lift.

94 pts James Suckling: Lovely depth of fruit to this mature red with chocolate, dark tea and bark. Purple flowers and violets. Full and very silky and refined. A beautiful traditional wine to get to know.

93 pts Wine Advocate: The 2005 Viña Tondonia Reserva is a blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacho, 5% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo from their vineyards in the meander of the Ebro River, where they have some 100 hectares of vineyards. The wine fermented in the original oak vats that are now some 140 years of age. There is no temperature control and malolactic was also in the vat. The wine was transferred to oak barrels where it slowly matured in their deep, humid caves for no less than six years. After this, it was bottled unfiltered after being fined with egg whites. I think the quality gap between the Reserva and Gran Reserva has been getting smaller since the 2001 vintage and this 2005 is nothing short of exceptional. It's clean and complex, with more freshness. The wine is very spicy and with a palate that feels very balanced, livelier than in the past. It has a long finish where the flavors are clean. Easy to drink and very pleasurable. Some 250,000 bottles were produced in 2005.

Giusto di Notri Tua Rita 2012

94 points Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, September 2014:

A dark, brooding wine, the 2012 Giusto di Notri presents a compelling array of dark stone fruits, grilled herbs, smoke, tobacco and menthol. The power of Suvereto and these Bordeaux varieties are both super-expressive in a virile, imposing wine loaded with personality and gorgeous, totally resonant fruit. This is a terrific showing.

94 points James Suckling:

Gorgeous aromas of spices, from chili powder to dried thyme, plus dark fruits such as currants and berries. Full body, fine tannins and layers of fruit and flavor. Very attractive now but even better in two or three years. This commemorates the 20th anniversary of this wine. Balanced blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot.

94 points Wine Enthusiast:

Made with Cabernet and Merlot, this offers scents of cedar, black currant, graphite and aromatic herb. Notes of licorice, ground pepper and tobacco accent the core of crushed blackberry and black cherry while polished tannins provide the framework. The lingering finish ends on a tobacco note.

93 points Robert Parker:

The 2012 Giusto di Notri is an IGT Toscana blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. It opens with rich, impenetrable concentration and luminous ruby highlights that shine bright against the inner darkness of this beautiful wine. Dark fruit, leather, spice, moist chewing tobacco and dark chocolate lift from the glass. The wine shows firm structure with silky tannins that render a polished texture on the finish.

Hong Kong Price 價錢:
HK$320
Italy, Tuscany
HK$320HK$290

產區:Italy
品種:100% Sangiovese

酒評: 細緻的乾漿果、黑櫻桃、皮革、香草等氣息, 以淡淡的煙草味收尾。中等至高酸度,單寧強而順滑,酒體飽滿,整體感覺複雜醇厚,開瓶透氣一小時後更佳。

擁有將近 118 公頃的 Tenuta Il Poggione 葡萄園,主要分佈在 Montalcino 山丘南部的 Sant’Angelo in Colle 村週遭,平均海拔高於 400 公尺以上,有著更理想的地中海型氣候。由於海拔較高,清晨與傍晚的涼爽溫度,延長了葡萄的生長週期,讓葡萄有著更集中豐富的果味以及更多的層次,同時也保留充份的果酸。

Il Poggione 在19世紀中,與Biondi-Santi 和 Frescobaldi 三家酒莊率先開始釀造Brunello di Montalcino,讓 Brunello di Montalcino 在 1966 年成為最先獲得義大利官方 D.O.C. 認證的八個產區之一,之後在 1980 年最先成為最高的 D.O.C.G.。現在Tenuta Il Poggione已是Brunello di Montalcino裡最頂級明星酒莊。

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.
