Chateau d'Issan 2014 波爾多三級莊
Chateau d'issan 2014
Chateau Bourgneuf 2011 JS91/NM90-92
Chateau Bourgneuf 2011
In the heart of the prestigious Pomerol appellation, Château Bourgneuf is spread over 9 hectares in one unique holding. Bourgneuf has belonged to the Vayron family since 1840. Eight generations have succeeded each other, transmitting their love for this land and its history.
91 pts James Suckling, February 19th, 2014:
A wine with a pretty ripe-fruit character and ripe, chewy tannins. Some toasted oak as well. I think it needs another two or three years to soften the tannins and bring it all together. Serious 2011 Pomerol.
90-92 pts Neal Martin – robertparker.com:
The Vayron family have conjured a lovely Pomerol this year… I appreciate its purity and feminity… You know, this could be the best Bourgneufs that I have tasted en primeur. Chapeau! Tasted twice with consistent notes.
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
Argiano Brunello di Montalcino 2012 JS96/RP94/WS93/WE92
【#5 Top25 Brunello di Montalcino's of 2012, - James Suckling】
2012年確實係意大利Montalcino產區的靚年，Argiano Brunello di Montalcino (BdM) 2012更是出眾。100%Sangiovese, 兩個月前係Great Italy wine 試左，係Barolo,Barbaresco,Super Tuscan 面前，表現超級Elegant。
96 pts James Suckling:
Fantastically complex aromas of spices, dried flowers and plums follow through to a full body, integrated and polished tannins and a superb finish. This is a 2012 Brunello with it all. Drink in 2018.
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.
Chateau La Pointe 2011 RP90/WS90
Chateau La Pointe 2011
Merlot 85% , Cabernet Franc 15%
90 points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #212 Apr 2014
This is a strong effort from La Pointe, another estate that seems to be producing better and better wines. A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, the 2011 reveals a dense ruby/plum/purple color, a sweet perfume of black raspberries, black currants, licorice and subtle high quality oak, medium to full body, and an expansive, broad, pure texture. Drink this sleeper of the vintage over the next decade.
90 pts James Molesworth (WineSpectator.com, March 2014):
Very solid, with a ganache spine supporting the enticing dark plum and fig fruit flavors, while bramble and singed wood spice notes fill in on the finish. Approachable now, this should mellow in the short-term. Drink now through 2021. 7,500 cases made.
(March 2012, Primeurs tasting comments by Hubert de Boüard de Laforest): “Deep, bright and lively colour with a dark purple rim. The nose opens out with floral notes such as violet that evolve towards ripe fruits, blackberry and raspberry. The palate is generous and long with a very pleasant freshness. This freshness persists on the finish and complements the lingering notes of tobacco and licorice. The tannins are taut and enveloped in a silky smoothness, a sure characteristic of an outstanding Pomerol. The 2011 perfectly demonstrates Château La Pointe’s reborn style developed over the last few vintages.”
Chateau Gloria 2012
Chateau Gloria 2011
90 Points Wine Spectator - "Mouthfilling, offering a fleshy, briary feel to the plum sauce, steeped currant and blackberry notes, with extra anise, tar and fruitcake details pumping through the finish. Lacks a little refinement in terms of structure, but this offers solid range and depth. Best from 2016 through 2024. Tasted twice, with consistent notes"
90 Points Wine Enthusiast - "This is an open, juicy wine with attractive fruit framed by firm but tamed tannins. The wine has a feeling of lightness, with black currant flavors that are lifted and fresh. This is a wine for medium-term aging. Drink from 2015. "
88 Points Wine Advocate :
An excellent effort, the 2011 Gloria continues the success this well-known property has enjoyed over the last several decades. A delicious concoction of red and black fruits, spice box, and earth as well as a silky textured, medium-bodied style emerge from this is an undeniable sleeper of the vintage. The round tannins, delicious fruit and forward character suggest it should be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years.
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)。
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...
Chateau Malartic Lagraviere 2006 (WE92, RP90)
Chateau Malartic Lagraviere 2006
Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc
92 points Wine Enthusiast:
An evocatively perfumed wine, with aromas of pine, eucalyptus and spice. To taste, it is open, generous, its tannins cushioned inside ripe, jelly black fruits. Everything mingles well, the core of dryness an essential component of the richness of the wine.
90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
Proprietor Alexandre Bonnie has produced brilliant white and red wines at this estate's NASA space age-looking winemaking facility. I remember these wines from the early days of The Wine Advocate, and they were undrinkable swill. That is certainly not the case today. This is classic Pessac-Leognan with leafy tobacco, smoky red and black currant, forest floor, cedar, and graphite notes. It is a medium-bodied wine of impeccable purity, texture, and balance.
Clos Rene 2010
Clos Rene 2010
The Clos René, located in the Pomerol appellation, has belonged to the Garde family for more than a century. Jean-Marie Garde currently runs this 18-hectare vineyard planted with 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Malbec. The domain is largely under-valued, considering the quality and regularity of its cuvées. The wines of Clos René are well made, in a classical and elegant style and with a wonderful aging ability, while being reasonable priced.
Clos de l'Oratoire 2006 波爾多右岸列級
Clos de l'Oratoire 2006
分級：Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classe
產區： Saint Emilion, Bordeaux
品種：90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc
91 Points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (181), February 2009:
blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, it is a surprisingly opulent, flamboyant, fleshy, soft crowd-pleaser displaying abundant amounts of smoked herbs, sweet black cherry and cassis fruit, licorice, espresso roast, chocolate, and toast. Full-bodied with superb concentration as well as a beautifully textured mouthfeel, this 2006 should drink well for 10-15+ years. Like all of the Neipperg estates, this wine's capsule has a clever anti-fraud device, which I think will be increasingly employed by many French estates.This nearly 30-acre estate, which was purchased several years ago by Stephan von Neipperg (owner of Canon La Gaffeliere and La Mondotte), performed exceptionally well in 2006.
91 Points Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar, May 2009:
Full ruby-red. Inky blackberry, black cherry, licorice and minerals on the nose. Sweet and densely packed, with a lush texture but also good enlivening minerality to the blueberry and dark chocolate flavors. Seamless and vinous Saint-Emilion, finishing with very suave tannins and noteworthy length and energy. An outperformer in 2006.
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 Talbot 1994 波爾多四級莊
Chateau Talbot 1994
This imposing estate owes its name to Connetable Talbot, the English general and governor of the province of Guyenne who was defeated at the famous Battle of Castillon in 1453.
Talbot's vines grow in an ideal location bordering an estuary, on some of the region's most highly prized gravel rises which alone produce great wine. Talbot is one of the oldest estates in the Medoc, and its reputation has been in the hands of experienced managers, and always shown itself to be worthy of its inclusion in the 1855 classification.
Owners of Talbot since the early 20th century, the Cordier family have perpetuation the commitment to quality of their predecessors. At Talbot, wine is very much past, present, and future. Therefore, tradition and technical innovations both count a great deal.
Chateau Laroze 2012
Chateau Laroze 2012
分級：Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classe
產區： Saint Emilion, Bordeaux
品種：68% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Franc, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon
1610, my ancestors the Gurchy family were already winegrowers in Saint- Emilion. In 1882, they founded the family estate of Laroze
Château Laroze is a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé and its 27-hectare (67-acre) vineyard is located at the foot of the hill to the north-west of the medieval village of Saint-Emilion. The vines grow around the Château.
We till the soil, cultivate grass between the rows, drain the plots, add organic supplements and prohibit the use of weed-killers, so that the vines’ roots find it easier to penetrate the soil made of silica and clay.
The quality of this beautifull setting is very favourable for the Cabernet Franc grapes providing us with rich tasty wines that are elegant and more-ish.
Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Cuvee Reservee 2014 WS93/WA92/JS91
Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Reservee 2014
*93 pts Wine Spectator:*
A gutsy style, with a frame of brick dust around a core of steeped cherry, plum and blackberry fruit. The back end pulls in dried sage, savory and tobacco notes. The finish lingers over a singed chestnut hint. Rock-solid and unabashedly old-school. Best from 2020 through 2030.
*91 pts James Suckling:*
A wild, rustic edge to this assertive and punchy fruit-driven Châteauneuf-du-Pape. A smooth black cherry and blood plum-flavored palate. Appealing tangy freshness to close. The rusticity denotes drink now or as a much older wine.
Chambolle Musigny Domaine Arnoux Lachaux 2014
Chambolle Musigny Domaine Arnoux Lachaux 2014 (AM88-91)
This wine is the result of a blend of five different blocks all located at the top of Chambolle’s slopes. They have of a north-east exposition which allows them to benefit from nice sunshine. The soil is made of clay and limestone and is very rocky, which confers to the wine this mineral caracteristic of the appellation. The average age of the vines here is 45 years old. Global size : 1 ha 85 .
88-91 points Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (61), January 2016:
This is at once more elegant and spicier as well with its pretty combination of red currant, cherry, lavender and sandalwood hints. There is a sleek and lacy mouth feel to the refined middle weight flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality on the balanced, delicious and persistent finale. This is very Chambolle in style. Drink: 2020+
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.
Guidalberto Tenuta San Guido 2013 意大利名莊Sassicaia副牌 WA93/WE93/JS92
Guidalberto, Tenuta San Guido 2013
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。
Valdicava Rosso di Montalcino 2013
Valdicava Rosso di Montalcino 2013
90 Points Antonio Galloni - Antonio Galloni's Vinous, February 2015:
Valdicava's 2013 Rosso di Montalcino is full of floral and dark red/purplish stone fruit notes. The freshness of the year comes through in the wine's aromatic complexity and nuance. The finessed, long finish is particularly of note. I tasted the 2013 from steel just prior to bottling.
Rockford Basket Press Shiraz 2009 JH 95/vivino4.4
Rockford Basket Press Shiraz 2009
Region : Barossa Valley
Robert O'Callaghan's Rockford Basket Press Shiraz is one of the Barossa Valley's most important wines. It entered Langton's Classification of Australian Wine in 2000 and was promoted to the highest – 'Exceptional' – category in 2005.
95 Points James Halliday, January, 2012
Medium red-purple; this is in the heartland of Barossa Valley shiraz style, the custom-made bottle a throwback to the 1940s; the bouquet is fragrant, and hides no secrets: silky, ripe tannins, abundant blackberry and spice fruit, and oak in perfect unison. Drink to 2029.
Nuits St Georges, Domaine Arnoux Lachaux 2014
Nuits St Georges, Domaine Arnoux Lachaux 2014
88-90 points Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (61), January 2016:
This is also quite aromatically expressive with its earthy array of various red berries, floral and lightly sauvage scents. There is more mid-palate concentration and power to the medium-bodied flavors that also possess an attractive texture before terminating in a lingering finish. This is also really quite pretty and more refined than usual thanks to the relatively fine-grained tannins.
Galatrona Petrolo 2010 RP96/JS95/Vious94/WS94
James Suckling 的10大 super super tuscans 之一， 100% Merlot, 來自意大利 Tuscany的 Galatrona Petrolo 2010
96 points Monica Larner, Wine Advocate (208), August 2013:
A massive expression of Merlot, the 2010 Galatrona is heaven-sent. The layers are infinite here spanning dark fruit, spice and chocolate. I fall in love with this wine year after year. The mouth is caressed with stirring complexity and fine tannins that feel silky and smooth. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.
95 points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, August 2012:
Aromas of black olives, violets and fresh fruit follow through to a full body, with a dense palate of dark fruits and olives. Long and polished. Handmade wine. You sense it. Pure Merlot sensation. Try in 2014.
94+ Ian d'Agata, vinous.com, September 2012:
(100% merlot): Full, saturated ruby. Extremely pure aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant, violet, minerals and cocoa. Lush and silky but precise too, with rich, tactile black fruit and mineral flavors lifted by harmonious acidity. The slow-building finish features ripe but very silky tannins and wonderful purity of flavor. A more refined Galatrona than some recent, more tannic versions; cellar it for another four or five years to allow it to build further complexity and depth.
94 points Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, September 2013:
The chocolate and cocoa notes highlight the black cherry, blackberry and pomegranate flavors in this dense red. Flamboyant, showing plenty of oak, this remains vibrant, intense and long, with a spicy aftertaste. Merlot. Best from 2016 through 2026. 500 cases imported.
Masi Costasera Amarone Classico 2012 JS94/RP92/WS91
Masi Costasera Amarone classico 2012 (JS94/RP92/WS91,vivino 4.3(7155酒評，比今年5月3120個酒評多了1倍))
94 pts James Suckling :
Lots of complexity comes through from the outset on the nose, borne out in terms of smoky black cherries, dried rose stems, asphalt, tar and licorice. Full, structured body that dives through layers of dark fruit, driven along by active acidity all the way to the long but not cloying finish.
Guidalberto Tenuta San Guido 2011 意大利名莊Sassicaia副牌 Vinous93/RP92/JS92
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.
Azelia Barolo 2012
Azelia Barolo 2012
產區：Piedmont DOCG , Italy
品種： 100% Nebbiolo
93 Points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, March 2016:
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.
Chateau Rouget Pomerol 2005 WS92/WA90/vivino4.3(105酒評）
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.
Roc de Cambes 2012 (AG93/NM92)車房酒
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.
Zenato Amarone Classico 2007 WA94/WE93/WS93
目前係市面買到的Amarone一般都是年輕的年份，老少少的都價錢飛升。今日到貨 2007年 Zenato Amarone Classico, 是繼Amarone酒王 Quintarelli 和 Dal Forno 之後的最佳選擇, 用波爾多的說法就是"超二級"，係Amarone 中流砥柱。 Zenato Amarone Classico 2007，WA94/WE93/WS93/vivino 4.4(1147酒評)。
94 pts Wine Advocate (Feb 2012):
The 2007 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico boasts fabulous intensity and richness. This is an especially heady, port-like Amarone imbued with tons of depth. Chocolate, black cherries, leather and spices wrap around the serious, palate-staining finish. The 2007 needs quite a bit of time, but it is hugely promising. Readers who appreciate a big, powerful style of Amarone will love Zenato’s 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.
Zenato酒莊，來自於莎士比亞筆下羅密歐與茱麗葉的故鄉，浪漫之都 唯羅納(Verona)，至今擁有50年歷史，以生產優質的 Amarone 與Valpolicella 著稱，獲得國際評審的讚譽。
La Gravette de Certan 2014 JS93/WS90 2nd wine of Vieux Ch. Certan
La Gravette de Certan 2014
2nd wine of Vieux Chateau Certan.
93 points James Suckling (Feb 2017):
The plum and blueberry character and hints of cocoa are really impressive. Medium to full body and firm and silky tannins. Integrated and so fine. A beautiful thing. Drink now or hold. Second wine of Vieux Château Certan.
91 points Wine Spectator (2017):
Lovely, with a stream of raspberry confiture flowing through, while light mint, star anise and black tea notes weave in and out. The long and refined finish has a light mineral accent, while the fruit sails on. This is quietly one of the best second wines in Bordeaux. Best from 2018 through 2026.
