La Spinetta CA DI PIAN Barbera d'Asti 2012 (JS91)
La Spinetta CA DI PIAN Barbera d'Asti 2012
91 points James Suckling:
Extremely perfumed with violet and blackberry aromas. Full body with firm, silky tannins and an attractive acid-fruit balance on the finish that titillates your palate. Drink now.
Winemaker Notes: Ruby red with purple reflections. Aromas of blueberry, wet earth and a hint of orange peel. Full body with bright acidity and lots of intensity but balanced and silky-textured, an ultra-fine Barbera that combines richness with finesse.
Dal Forno Romano Valpolicella 2010 ST96/RP95/JS95/vivino4.4(342酒評)
Dal Forno Romano Valpolicella 2010
【The King of valpolicella】來自於從事葡萄果農家族的Romano dal Forno，年輕時有幸受到 Giuseppe Quintarelli的指導與啟發，加上其堅毅的個性與卓越的遠見，不但轉型建立了獨立裝瓶的酒莊Dal Forno Romano，而且其釀造出超水準的極高品質酒款，成為Veneto產區中唯一能與Giuseppe Quintarelli齊名的世界級頂尖酒莊。
96 pts ST (May 2017) &
(International Wine Cellar 2017 Top 100 wines):
The 2010 Valpolicella Superiore is a utterly fascinating wine from Dal Forno in this vintage. Composed from 70% Corvina and Corvina Grossa, 20% Rondinella, 5% Croatina, 5% Oseleta, the selected grapes are then placed in plastic plateaux and are left to rest for 45 days in large open rooms, where an innovative ventilation system helps maintain an elevated and thorough air flow. After the racking process, the Valpolicella rests for a few days in stainless steel tanks and subsequently is placed in new barriques to mature for 36 long months. The result is a wine which displays a pitch dark, inky color, followed by complex aromatics of ripe black currants, black cherries, mission figs woven together with espresso, grilled herbs, bittersweet chocolate, graphite and some earthy loam and straw characteristics all taking shape in this seductive Valpolicella. On this palate this is full-bodied with beautifully polished tannins and remarkable overall structure and balance, with impressive minerality at it core. It all comes together beautifully on the long, expansive finish which lingers on and on. It seems as if this wine continues to improve in quality each vintage, and the 2010 is the most compelling Valpolicella I have ever tasted from the estate. Overall, this is another total success from the Dal Forno Family. (Best 2019-2030)
Kay Brothers Block 6 Shiraz 2007 JH94/WA93
Kay Brothers Block 6 Shiraz 2007
產區：McLaren Vale, South Australia
The Block 6 vineyard dates back to 1892. Over 110 years later four acres still remain, cropping at extremely low levels, the fruit is of extreme quality. The wine is an excellent example of a big, rich & brooding McLaren Shiraz. After basket pressing & fermentation in open top fermenters built in 1896, the wine is matured for over 2 years in new American & Baltic oak producing intense flavour & great longevity. A wine which will reward patience well.
Tua Rita Giusto di Notri 2011 WA94/AG92
80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot,
10% Cabernet Franc
94 pts Wine Advocate :
One of my favorite Tua Rita wines, the 2011 Giusto di Notri sees 60% Cabernet Sauvignon blended with 30% Merlot and a smaller component of Cabernet Franc. Inky dark and impenetrable, this is a hearty Tuscan red to pair with a succulent slab of charcoal-grilled steak and spicy barbecue marinade. The wine is exceedingly soft and opulent with gorgeous tones of black cherry, rum cake, crushed granite, cured meat, leather and exotic spice. This is a huge wine, in a resoundingly positive way that rewards a beautiful and intense drinking experience. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028.
Tua Rita酒莊是由RitaTua與Virglilio Bisti在1984年成立，坐落在Livorno行政區中的Notri村。這裡是Alta Maremm，依傍著Sangiovese的種植區，是最適合種植像是Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay, Reisling和Traminer等等國際葡萄品種的區域之一。
隨著1994年第一次少量細桶釀造的100%Merlot “Redigaffi “釋出到市場，Tua Rita酒莊就獲了市場關注，2000年的年份更R成為了有史以來第一支被Robert Parker評價100分的意大利葡萄酒。與Masseto 和Messorio 並列Toscana 頂尖的3大100%Merlot紅酒。
其實在Redigaffi的成功前，酒莊的第一款酒便是今日介紹的波爾多式混釀的Giusto di Notri , 1992年推出市面已收到大量訂單。在酒莊收入大增之下，不斷提升釀造設備和悉心照顧葡萄園，此酒近年大獲好評(分數如下)。
Domenico Clerico Barolo "Aeroplanservaj" 2008 set x 6 bottles 一套6種標籤,原木箱 RP95/WS92
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.
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.
Castello dei Rampolla “Sammarco” 2011 JS95/Vinous 95/ WA94/WS92/vivino4.1(221酒評)
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.
Mollydooker The Maitre D Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Chateau Ormes de Pez 2010 JS95/WE93/WS91
Chateau Ormes de Pez 2010
產區：Saint Estephe, Bordeaux
波爾多超級中級莊, 幾百間中級莊排行前7位，質量已拍住或超出某些列級5級莊。Cazes 家族除了大仔(靚次伯Lynch Bages)外，另一個仔，共用同一個釀酒團隊。 2010年波爾多靚年份， JS95/WE93/WS91/vivino3.9(672酒評)。
95 points James Suckling :
Wonderful aromas of currants and blackberries with hints of spices. Full body, with fabulous tannins and a long and creamy texture to the finish. I love the depth of fruit to this. Best ever from here. Great value for the vintage.
93 points Wine Enthusiast:
Although this wine has tannins, it’s the fruit that shines, with its delicious black-currant flavor and acidity. It is more fine and elegant than it is powerful, a pleasant surprise from Saint-Estèphe in this vintage For medium-term aging.
91 points Wine Spectator:
Dark and winey, with good damson plum, black currant and mulled spice notes pushed by a tangy iron note and flecks of savory and chalk on the finish. The judicious toast lets the pure fruit drive along. Best from 2015 through 2025. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
D'Arenberg Dead Arm Shiraz 2005 (RP95)
D'Arenberg Dead Arm Shiraz 2005
產區：McLaren Vale, South Australia
95 Points Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate - "d'Arenberg's flagship is the 2006 The Dead Arm Shiraz. Opaque purple-colored, the nose is reticent but gives up aromas of meat, bacon, game, truffles, blueberry, and blackberry. Firm, layered, and complex, this beautifully rendered Shiraz demands a decade of cellaring. It will be superb from 2018 to 2036. d'Arenberg has been owned and operated by the Osborn family since its inception in 1912. The portfolio, with a focus on the Rhone varieties, is wide ranging and value-oriented from top to bottom. The winery produces a bevy of value priced reds and whites that were reviewed in Issue 178. They should not be overlooked. At the higher end of the portfolio there is one white wine on which to report.
95 Points James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion - "The Dead Arm rarely fails to deliver an uncompromising essay on McLaren fruit; deeply concentrated with levels of dark chocolate, blackberry, nuances of florals and a freshness that belies its weight and power. Good value."
Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2008 WS92/ST90/JR17
【法國南隆河 老字號的金漆招牌: Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe 老電報酒莊】
老電報酒莊(Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe)主要的葡萄園座落於 教皇新堡產區最高點之一的”La Crau”丘地，酒莊由Brunier家族擁有與經營已超過一個世紀，目前是由第三代Daniel和Frederic兄弟負責。無庸置疑的老電報酒莊是本產區最著名的代表性酒莊之一，以生產充滿強度卻精緻、帶著濃郁水果與絲絨般質感的佳釀聞名於世。

92 pts Wine Spectator (Feb 2011):
Still tight, with the core of cherry and red currant fruit held in check by a mix of lightly firm sandalwood, spice, licorice root and warm stone flavors. Mulled fig and cocoa notes check in on the grippy finish. A rare backward style 2008 that will need some cellaring to round into form. Best from 2013 through 2020.
Chateau d'Armailhac 2014 波爾多五級莊 (JS94)
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.
Gevrer Chambertin 1er Clos des Issarts, Domaine Faiveley 2011 AM90-93/ST91-93
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。
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.
Chateau Musar 2001 (WA91)
Chateau Musar 2001
產區：Bekaa Valley, Lebanon
品種：Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Carignan
93 points Wine & Spirits (Jun 2010):
As elegant as Serge Hochar himself, the man behind Château Musar, this blend of cabernet sauvignon, carignan and cinsault is lithe yet firm. The fruit feels autumnal, in shades of rust red and ocher spice, and is saturated with a spicy, foresty fragrance. It's delicious now, ready for game birds scented with juniper berries, and should live on for another decade.
91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Feb 2010):
Nuanced by cherries and spice, it is quite delicious...The ’00 is the powerhouse bruiser, the most rustic, while the Hochar is the approachable, easier wine. This is the one in the middle, arguably the best balance of fruit and power. On the downside, this is as gamey and funky as the 2000, but the balance is different, the wine seeming fruitier and fleshier, not quite as austere. Depending on your taste, you may find that a good thing, or prefer the more powerful and intellectual 2000. This is still powerful, I hasten to add, with drying notes on the finish, but the fruitiness melds beautifully with the barnyard notes, and it is nicely supported by the tannin rather than overwhelmed. As with the 2000, this should age well, although the 2000 should age longer, and this will be a wine some will love, and some will find has too much barnyard. Personally, I enjoyed it a lot, and was just imagining how it would work with venison. Drink now-2020.
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.
Orma Toscana 2011 JS97/RP93/WE92
釀造Oreno而聞名的七橋酒莊主Antonio Moretti Cuseri 係Bolgheri 買下7公頃靚田，99年開始栽種釀造Orma，酒莊自05年起頻頻得獎，每年平均94分，頗有實力。
50%Merlot, 30%Cabernet Sauvignon, 20%Cabernet Franc.
97 pts James Suckling :
A gorgeous, sleek wine with super-polished tannins and fabulous fruit. It's full but so refined and sexy. It goes on for minutes. Really fine. What a wine. This Bordeaux blend from here is the best ever. Better in 2016 but great now.
Chateau Belair 1997 波爾多st-Emilion 1B級
Chateau Belair 1997
1er Grand Cru Classé, St Emilion
This estate was owned by the Dubois-Challon family since 1916, and covers 13 hectares of vines planted, predominantly, on well-drained limestone-based soils. The Château is the immediate neighbor of Ausone, situated on the south-facing slope of Saint-Emilion known as the "Côte", overlooking the distant Dordogne river. A traditional winemaking approach is adopted by Pascal Delbeck, new owner and formerly Cellar Manager of Bélair for more than 20 years, working with nature in the vineyard and adopting a minimalist intervention approach in the winery. Since 2005 the Moueix family of Libourne have taken a share in the property and now work hand in hand with Delbeck, with impressive results. Bélair shows signs of finding once more its former glory as one of the finest wines of St Emilion.
Vietti Barolo Castiglione 2008
Vietti Barolo Castiglione 2008
產區：Barolo, Piedmont, Italy
品種：100% Nebbiolo, 50326 bottles made.
Winemakers' Notes: The Barolo Castiglione deftly balances the open, radiant personality of the vintage with considerable underlying structure. Warm, dense and full-bodied, the Barolo Castiglione flows effortlessly across the palate with generous fruit and fabulous overall balance. The grapes are selected from vineyards located in Castiglione Falletto, Monforte, Barolo and Novello where the vines are planed an average of 4.800 vines per hectare.
94 Points Wine Advocate - "The 2009 Barolo Castiglione delivers a radiant but subdued quality with polished notes of dry mineral, black fruit, tar, licorice, leather and many more levels of complexity. This entry-level Barolo demonstrates that great results are achieved in 2009."
92 Points Wine Spectator - "Features cherry and strawberry fruit up front, with tobacco and earth notes introducing the dense structure and licorice and leather flavors. Loosely stitched, yet harmonious and long. Best from 2016 through 2030."
Travaglini Gattinara Riserva 2011 JS93/WE93/WA91/vivino4.1(794酒評)
Travaglini Gattinara Riserva 2011
Region: Gattinara, Italy， 建議醒酒6小時
93 pts James Suckling:
You can smell the ripeness of the vintage with dried strawberry and orange peel character. Full body, chewy tannins and a savory finish. Rich and powerful. Drink or hold.
93 pts Wine Enthusiast:
Attractive aromas of rose, wild berry and aromatic herb lead the nose on this elegantly structured red. The bright palate offers crushed raspberry, juicy dark cherry, licorice and clove alongside firm polished tannins. A flinty mineral note energizes the finish. Hold for more complexity. Drink 2019–2026.
91 pts Wine Advocate:
Travaglini's 2011 Gattinara Riserva sees fruit sourced from the best rows of vines from various parcels located throughout the entire property. The wine is only produced in the best vintages. This is a more austere and structured wine with layered tones of black fruit, spice, licorice and campfire ash. There is a floral element of pressed rose petals that appears with delicate intensity at the back. In the mouth, this wine offers power and good structure.
PSI Peter Sisseck 2012
PSI Peter Sisseck 2009
產區：Ribera del Duero, Spain
丹麥人Peter Sisseck 所創立的 Dominio de Pingus 是西班牙Ribera del Duero產區的超級酒莊。近10年來得到眾多酒評家的讚賞，令酒價升到飛起，聲勢媲美同酒區的老字號頂級酒莊Vega Sicilia。Peter Sisseck擅長發掘產區內優質的老樹葡萄園，加上Biodynamic 的耕種和管理，更發揮其潛力，除了早已聲名遠播的Pingus 和 副牌 Flor de Pingus之外， 最新力作就是這支以希臘文第23個字母所命名的PSI 紅酒，主要採收來自產區內不同的老滕葡萄園，並說服果農以Biodynamic的方式來種植葡萄，並發揮出100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo)的特有風味。
SENA 2014 (375ml) 半支裝 JS97/WA95/WS92
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.
Chateau Rauzan Gassies 2009 波爾多二級莊
Chateau Rauzan Gassies 2009 二級莊
品種：75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdo
91 Points The Wine Advocate - "A masculine-styled, dense purple-colored 2009, this cuvee offers up scents of charcoal, asphalt, black currants, incense, and crushed rocks. This deep, medium to full-bodied, well-made Margaux is broader, richer, and more substantial than usual, with more alcohol as well as substance. The tannins are ripe and well-integrated. This is a 30-year wine.
91 Points Wine Enthusiast - "Soft and ripe wine that shows the richness of the year while offering a core of tannins. It is immediately attractive, although the structure and final tannins do promise aging potential."
Domaine La Barroche Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2009 WS92
Chateau Marquis de Terme 2009 波爾多四級莊 (WS90)
Chateau Marquis de Terme 2009
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.
Domaine Geantet Pansiot, Gevrey 1er Poissenot 2010 AM91
Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Poissenot, Domaine Geantet-Pansiot 2010
Geantet-Pansiot 是勃根地近年受追捧的新進酒莊，歷史五十年左右，以 Gevrey Chambertin 為基地，全系列的 Gevrey Chambertin 村莊級、一級園的品質都非常優秀穩定。莊主Vincent Geantet 於 1989 年接手父親留下這座 11公頃的酒廠，兒子 Fabien 自 2006 年起加入協助父親釀酒。
酒莊 唯一一塊一級園Le Poissenot，靠近Clos St-Jacques的上方，鄰接上坡處的La Romanee，Le Poissenot和媲美頂級園的Clos St-Jacques一樣有著高比例石灰的黏土和泥灰質土，酒質均衡精緻且充滿紮實的複雜層次與深度，深受莊主Vincent Geantet的喜愛。果實會經4次篩選，10 度10 天冷浸泡，20-22 天不超過 35 度發酵，沉澱2天後導入橡木桶。其 Bourgogne 到頂級酒 Charmes 皆採30%新桶，12-14個月桶陳後入樽。
*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.
Gevrey-Chambertin VV Domaine Rossignol-Trapet 2014
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.
Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia 2015 D98/JS98/WS97/WA97/WE97
【#1 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2018】
如果說有一款酒激發並帶領 意大利葡萄酒走向現代化，那非Sassicaia"西施嘉雅" 莫屬。這款佳釀出產自Mario Incisa della Rocchetta侯爵擁有的Tenuta San Guido酒莊，葡萄園位在佛羅倫斯西南方近海的Bolgheri產區，是他周遊各國後所矢志要釀出世界級的頂尖酒款，透過朋友關係引進了來自波爾多一級莊"拉菲" Lafite Rothschild的葡萄株種，並採用波爾多的釀酒方式，雖然完全揚棄了意大利的傳統，但卻恰如其份地發揮並傳遞出Bolgheri產區terroir的最精彩之美味。Sassicaia第一個商業販售的年份為1968年，或許在當時並還沒有得到多數人的欣賞，但與波爾多頂級酒不相上下的優異品質，卻逐漸吸引識貨者的親睞。
在1978年，權威的Decanter 雜誌於倫敦舉辦了一場品酒會，由Hugh Johnson, Serena Sutcliffe與Clive Coates等著名評酒師所組成的評審團，在品評完參賽的11個國家共33支頂級酒後，評定1972年份的Sassicaia為全世界最佳的Cabernet Sauvignon紅酒。1985年份拿到Robert Parker100分後，自此奠定了Sassicaia非凡的地位，也影響了許多意大利酒莊朝向現代化的改革前進，成為了後來發展出Super Tuscan潮流的原動力之一。
98 pts Decanter:
The first Cabernet grapes were picked on September 10th under perfect conditions, with yields a little lower than average. As is usual at Tenuta San Guido, the fruit for Sassicaia was gently crushed and fermented in stainless steel using natural yeasts. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine spent two years in French oak prior to bottling. This is certainly an exceptional Sassicaia, with a sumptuous nose of ripe, creamy black and red fruit with cedar and spice notes. The colour is by no means dark (as is often the case with Sassicaia), and the impression on the palate is one of controlled power underpinned by gorgeous sweetness and flowing elegance. This is a very confident wine with real authority and presence, beginning with a magnificent attack of rich cassis and ripe griotte cherry followed by cigar box and leather notes, and a long finish of savoury bay leaf and minerals. It's deceptively structured, the tannins wonderfully ripe, creamy and finely textured, while the juicy acidity also suggests that this wine has a very long life ahead of it. This 2015 exhibits everything that you’d want from Sassicaia - and more - because of its winning combination of winemaking savoir-faire, world-class terroir, old vine fruit, and an outstanding vintage. It is unarguably stunning.
Chateau du Tertre 2003 波爾多五級莊 JS92/RP90
Chateau du Tertre 2003
92 points James Suckling:
This is very new world in the nose with loads of ripe, raisiny, and spicy fruit. Full bodied, with a round and chewy finish. Very extracted, but I think it will come around very well in the end.
90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
This dark ruby/purple-colored, luscious, soft, already complex 2003 offers alluring notes of smoked herbs, black cherry jam, camphor, white chocolate, and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, silky-textured, heady, and impossible to resist...
Barbera d'Alba Ceretto Roberto Voerzio 2013
Barbera d'Alba "Ceretto" Roberto Voerzio 2013
產區：Alba, Piedmont, Italy
“如果不是那些勇敢的生產者減少產量，把精力花在提高意大利葡萄酒的品質上，我們可能永遠不會知道巴貝拉（Barbera）如此美味、複雜、擁有如此巨大的陳年潛力。但是Roberto Voerzio的不僅令自己的名字聞名於世，也印證了Barbera不僅僅是美食的陪伴，更能做到令人刮目相看。 Roberto Voerzio釀造每一款酒都非常的“瘋狂”，這支Barbera也不例外。產量極低，每珠葡萄藤的產量僅有1kg，它的風格深邃細膩，集中度高，同時又有純淨的果香，超長的陳年潛力！
如果你是意粉，一定聽過Roberto Voerzio的大名，他是“醉”好的Barolo釀酒師之一。你絕不會將Voerzio與其他酒莊混起來，因為每一瓶Voerzio中都可以喝到他狂熱的“工匠精神”。 近乎偏執地追求著品質及Barolo地區的風土表現，如果結果不能令他滿意，他寧願選擇放棄。通過嚴格的產量控制和對風土的虔誠，他讓Nebbiolo和Barbera綻放出了前所未有的耀眼魅力。
90 points Antonio Galloni: The 2013 Barbera d'Alba Cerreto is absolutely delicious, and another reminder of just how special this vintage is for Barbera. In 2013, the Cerreto is a bit brighter than it usually is, with plenty of supporting acidity and fabulous overall balance.
Mascarello Giuseppe E Figlio Barbera d'Alba "Scudetto" 2011 vivino4.0(181酒評)
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.
La Rioja Alta "Viña Ardanza" Reserva Rioja 2009 JS96/TA95/WA93/Decanter 91
96 pts James Suckling:
This is a powerful and rich red with black truffle and blueberry character. Sweet tobacco, too. Full body, tannic and flavorful. Yet open and polished. Fantastic finish. Great ageing potential. Drink or hold.
