Chateau Certan Marzelle Pomerol 2006
Chateau Certan Marzelle Pomerol 2006
Château Certan-Marzelle combines, in a unique way, both tradition and modernism. Sharing its denomination with Vieux Château Certan and Château Certan de May, the property was originally part of Château Certan Giraud.
Unlike its mythical neighbors, Château Certan Marzelle is planted with 100% Merlot, and its 20 year-old vines produce wines with great softness and charm. This wine is to be enjoyed in its youth as well as after a few years of aging.
89 points The Wine Advocate:
Another tightly knit wine, despite the fact it is made from 100% Merlot and was showing an opulent, flamboyant character from barrel, this wine now displays excellent density, sweet black cherry fruit intermixed with pain grille, hints of crushed rock, and a distinct earthiness. There is plenty of density, but the wine exhibits relatively high tannins in the finish and seems to be going through an extremely closed state. Give it 3-4 years and drink it over the following 15.
Chateau Rouget 2008 RP91/JS90/ST89
Chateau Rouget 2008
品種：85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.
91 Points Robert Parker:
Similar in style to the 2008 Bon Pasteur, the dark ruby/plum-colored 2008 Rouget is unquestionably a sleeper of the vintage. Notes of mulberries, black currants and sandy, loamy soil as well as a lush, seductive, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and good purity as well as depth suggest it can be drunk now and over the next decade or more.
Chateau Pavie Macquin 2013 波爾多St-Emilion 1B級
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.
Clos des Lunelles 2010
Clos des Lunelles 2010
產區：Castilion, Cotes de Bordeaux
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.
Elderton Estate Shiraz 2005 X 6 bottles WS90/Vinous90
Elderton Estate Shiraz 2005
品種：100% Shiraz from Barossa, Australia.
90 points Wine Spectator:
Smooth and focused, with a peppermint edge to the red cherry and blackberry flavors, finishing with a layer of sweet spices.
90 points Vinous:
Inky purple. Spicy raspberry and cherry on the nose, with gentle Asian spice accents. Round, fleshy and concentrated, with energetic red fruit flavors joined by a mocha quality on the back. A wonderfully balanced shiraz with supple tannins.

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+

Chateauneuf du Pape, Clos St Jean 2008 (WA90)
Chateauneuf du Pape, Clos St Jean 2008
【Robert Parker 最鍾意的酒莊之一: Clos St Jean 來自法國隆河谷】
Clos Saint Jean 是在1900年由Edmund Tacussel所建立。現任莊主Pascal 和Vincent Maurel兩兄弟於父親Guy Maurel過世後分工接掌酒莊，以傳承多年的家族技藝，延續了酒莊的好名聲。曾經讚美clos saint jean是南法地區品質水準提升最快速的酒莊的 Robert Parker, 除了不斷給予極高度的評價外，更曾公開宣佈Clos saint Jean是他2011年度最鍾意的四家酒莊之一。
2008年是教皇新堡 (Chateauneuf du pape)的經典年份，但Clos saint Jean 依然釀造出其它酒莊難以置信的超優異水準， 其中酒莊頂級酒款Deus Ex-Machina和Sanctus Sanctorum獲得完美評價，其它酒款亦獲得好評。今日介紹的基本款教皇新堡，由60%Grenache 和Syrah, Mourvedre, 以及極少量的Cinsault, Muscardin, 和Vaccareze 混釀，香氣濃郁，熟莓、花香，酸度適中，單寧平滑，整體平衡，舒服易飲。
90 Points Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate (214), August 2014:
A wine I've had numerous times, the 2008 Chateauneuf du Pape has a Burgundian feel in its black cherry, forest floor, pepper and underbrush-like aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, elegant and seamless, it's a delicious, certainly outstanding wine to drink over the coming 3-5 years. Put this in a blind tasting with top-notch Burgundies and shock your friends. Drink 2014 - 2019
La Chapelle de la Mission 2014 JS93/AG91+/WS91/JD90
La Chapelle de la Mission 2014 修道院紅顏容 副牌
La Mission Haut Brion的實力非凡，早在Dillon家族買下之前，1961／1975／1982就是WA100分，之後的1989／2000／2009也仍持續100分佳績，這是她的副牌 名為La Chapelle de la Mission，自1991年生產，用的園中年輕的葡萄藤。值得一提的是，自2005年起，Dillon家族的另一產業Ch. La Tour Haut-Brion也全部用來生產La Chapelle de la Mission。Ch. La Tour Haut-Brion的紅酒，位列Graves 1959年分級的13間列級酒莊之一，以前每年僅有2000－2500箱，2004是最後一個年份，現在已全部混入La Chapelle de la Mission。將列級酒莊的酒全數釀造副牌十分罕見，但Dillon家族同時擁有Ch. Haut Brion與Ch. La Mission Haut Brion兩顆巨星，這是極大的本錢。
年產只有4000箱， 45% Merlot, 31% Cabernet Franc, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon
91+ pts Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, （Feb 2017）
Today, the 2014 La Chapelle de La Mission Haut-Brion is powerful, structured and also a touch compact, with a bit less apparent breadth than it showed from barrel. Smoke, tobacco, licorice, cedar, French oak and dark stone fruit notes struggle to fully emerge. Today the tannins are especially forbidding. There is good energy and tension in the glass. Perhaps it is the high % of Cabernet Franc that is shutting the wine down. The 2014 is very pretty, but it is not an especially forthcoming second wine. Even so, the bright floral and red-fruit-toned notes make me think it will drink nicely for a number of years.
Nuits St Georges, Domaine Arnoux Lachaux 2014 (AM88-90)
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.

Bourgogne Meo Camuzet 2011
品種：100% Pinot Noir
★ 勃根第酒神 Henri Jayer 傳人 - Jean-Nicholas Meo ★
Vosne Romanee 村內超級明星酒莊 Domaine Meo-Camuzet 位於被譽為勃根地夜丘皇冠上的寶石 - Vosne Romanee 村內，20世紀初創始人 Etienne Camuzet 開始在村內購入葡萄園，因膝下無子，1959 年由表弟 Jean Meo 繼承酒園，正式成立 Domaine Meo-Camuzet。勃根地傳奇釀酒師 Henri Jayer 則在二次大戰後採無償佃農 Métayage 合約方式開始替 Camuzet 家族釀酒 (需將每年釀的酒一半繳回給地主)，無奈 Jean Meo 事業繁忙而分身乏術，多是將酒整桶賣給酒商。直到 1980 年中期，Jean 的兒子 Jean-Nicholas Meo 決定繼承酒莊經營，並取得種植與釀酒相關文憑，並聘請 Henri Jayer 擔任釀酒顧問，直到他對 Jean-Nicholas 的釀酒技術滿意後才功成身退。
Meo-Camuzet 酒的個性沿習 Henri Jayer 酒的特性，但多一分柔美個性，擁有深奧的稠密度與精緻的細緻度，豐饒且有勁的支撐力，相當迷人。Jean-Nicholas 依據 Henri 的釀酒哲學繼續產出高水準的酒款，短短十幾年時間內，將 Meo-Camuzet 提升為勃根地的明星酒莊。當中備受好評的超值佳釀就是地區級的Bourgogne Rouge，這款布根地地區級紅酒是以部分購買來的葡萄所釀製，因此貼上Meo-Camuzet Frère et Soeurs的酒商標籤。除了購買來自熟悉的果農位於Marsannay、Fixin、Morey與Nuits-St-Georges等村莊級的黑皮諾葡萄果實或葡萄酒之外，也加入部份酒莊自有於Vosne-Romanée與Flagey村的葡萄園之老藤果實。釀造方式嚴守Meo-Camuzet一貫的最高品質標準，注重酒質的細緻優雅，避免過度萃取，並且盡量使用較多的舊橡木桶，以表現清新果味並同時讓酒可以較早享用。

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.
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.
Chateau Haut Bages Liberal 2005 WS93/RP90/NM90/JR16.5
Chateau Haut Bages Liberal 2005
93 points Wine Spectator:
Very aromatic, showing blackberry and currant aromas, with some licorice. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a rich, decadent, fruity finish. Caresses the palate. Stylish and opulent. Best after 2011. 10,000 cases made.
90 points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (219), June 2015:
The 2005 Haut-Bages Libéral offers loads of blackcurrant fruit, licorice, spice and forest floor. It is medium to full-bodied, with supple tannin and an expansive, textured mouthfeel and finish. Drink it over the next 15-20 years. Drink 2015-2035.
90 points Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, January 2012:
Tasted at BBR’s 2005/2009 tasting in London. The Haut Bages Liberal has a refined bouquet, timid at first but growing in confidence with dark berries, wild hedgerow, truffle and scorched earth. The palate is medium-bodied with a racy entry, crisp blackberry, graphite and bell pepper with a masculine, tannic, chalky-textured finish. It is a little rustic at the moment, but full of character. Tasted July 2011.
16.5 points Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, March 2017:
Tasted blind. Deep crimson. Sleek, well-mannered nose. Lots of graphite quality. Quite distinctive. Fruit and tannins well balanced. Quite long and appetising. Drink 2016-2030
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.
Chateau Cantemerle 2011 波爾多五級莊 (WA91)
Chateau Cantemerle 2011
產區 : Haut Medoc, Bordeaux
品種 : 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot
91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
An elegant, successful 2011, Cantemerle has produced a finesse-styled wine with a dense ruby/purple color as well as copious notes of flowers, mulberries, raspberries and blueberries. With dramatic quality and purity, this medium-bodied effort possesses sweet tannins and a texture that builds incrementally. A lighter-styled, but beautifully crafted, well done 2011, it can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years.
91 James Suckling:
Aromas of currants and berries with hints of chocolate. Full body with a solid core of fruit and a flavorful finish. Very fine. Cantermerle delivers in 2011. Better in 2016.
Ducru Beaucaillou 2011 波爾多2級莊
Ch. Ducru Beaucaillou 2011
92+ Points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (212), May 2014:
The 2011 Ducru Beaucaillou (which normally represents 1/3 to ½ of the entire crop) possesses a dense ruby/purple color along with a beautiful nose of sweet creme de cassis, crushed rock and spring flower aromas. This rich, medium to full-bodied St.-Julien is among the most concentrated wines of the Medoc. Moderate tannin is sweet and well-integrated. This beauty will benefit from 3-5 years of cellaring and keep for two decades. Drink 2017 - 2037.
95 Points Tim Atkin MW, timatkin.com, April 2012:
This isn't quite as good as the 2010 and 2009 Ducrus, but it's not far behind: a concentrated, yet very polished St Julien from the lowest yields ever at the château. Sweet and intense, with hauntingly floral aromas, notes of cassis, plums and currant, fresh acidity and rich, yet silky tannins leading to a bright, refreshing finish. Powerful yet restrained, this is a keeper. 15+ years.
93 Points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2014:
This sweet white is quite oily, with dried-pineapple and mango character. It's full-bodied, very sweet and juicy on finish. Thick and rich. Drink now or hold.
Chateau Lafleur-Gazin 2010 WS92/JS91
Chateau Lafleur-Gazin 2010
92 pts Wine Spectator:
Offers a fleshy, corpulent feel, with mouthfilling plum, melted licorice, fruitcake and linzer torte flavors layered and pumping through the broad, well-toasted finish. A not-shy style, showing a bit of punch on the finish alongside plenty of length and depth. Best from 2014 through 2024.
La Rioja Alta "Viña Ardanza" Reserva Rioja 2004 #22 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013
La Rioja Alta "Viña Ardanza" Reserva Rioja 2004
#22 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013
94 points Wine Spectator: Cedar, tobacco and spice hints frame dried cherry, berry and vanilla notes in this silky red. The flavors mingle nicely, framed by juicy acidity and light but firm tannins. The wine has a lovely, weightless intensity. A fine example of the traditional style.
93 points The Wine Advocate: The 2004 Vina Ardanza is a blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha from 30-year-old vines in Fuenmayor and Cenicero. It is aged for 36 months in four-year-old American oak. It has a very enticing bouquet with dark cherry, Christmas cake, dried fig and espresso with fine delineation and bags of exuberance. The palate is medium-bodied with taut tannins, underpinned by a keen citric thread that cuts through the licorice-tinged, dark berry and allspice-tinged fruit with style. It is simply delicious on the bittersweet finish.
93 points Decanter: 2004 was one of the decade's finest vintages in Rioja. Ardanza, with 20% Garnacha added to the Tempranillo, shows the typical generous appeal of the brand. A traditional favourite, polished and refurbished by winemaker Julio Sáenz.
Chateau Lafon Rochet 2010 波爾多4級莊 NM94/WE93/WS91
Chateau Lafon Rochet 2010
67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.
94 pts Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, February 2014:
Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. Wow - this Saint Estèphe appears to be just getting into its stride. This seems reticent on the nose at first, but modest coaxing reveals scents of blackberry mixed with gravel and incense. The palate is medium-bodied with gentle grip, firm tannins and a pleasant salty tang on the finish. Masculine and structured, with good persistency and a lovely austere personality, Basile Tesseron and his team have overseen an aloof but engaging Lafon-Rochet that could be the dark horse of the appellation. Tasted January 2014.
Chateau Ferriere 2011 波爾多三級莊
Chateau Ferriere 2011
品種：60 % cabernet sauvignon, 36 % merlot, 4 % cabernet franc
評級：1855年波爾多列級三級莊 3eme CRU CLASSE EN 1855
陳釀：18 個月橡木桶， 40 % 新桶
The resulting wine has both the power and the elegance. Nice freshness on the nose and palate. The tannins are firms but silky.
CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VINTAGE
Winter and Spring were dry. Since the beginning, climatic conditions predicted an early vintage. The water deficit worsened a little more up to July and the high temperatures in June made the vine suffered. The Merlot sagged after flowering because of these unusual dryness and heat.
2011 experienced unusual weather conditions that ultimately benefited many Cabernet Sauvignons. The grapes had a very good concentration of phenol compounds and very elegant tannins. The challenge of this vintage was a very strict sorting of the grapes. However, there is a lower yield (- 10%) due to the weather, and the berries were rather small with a thick skin.
L'Hospitalet de Gazin 2005 93 points Wine & Spirit Magazine
L'Hospitalet de Gazin 2005
93 points Wine & Spirit Magazine:
The second wine of Gazin showed significantly better than the first in our tasting. A classic Pomerol, this is as compelling for its silken texture as it is for the pure, sunny fraise de bois flavor. The fruit and the formidable tannin merge seamlessly in a wine with high energy and a high yum factor. It's hard to keep your hands off the glass. Delicious as a young wine, this has the structure to sustain it for more than a decade.
About Winery: The Château Gazin vineyards cover 64.2 acres in a single lot, with 56.8 acres under vines, located on the renowned clay-gravel plateau of Pomerol. The estate can produce up to 100,000 bottles a year. A second AOC Pomerol wine "l’Hospitalet de Gazin", was created in 1986 in order to reserve the best of the harvest for Château Gazin.
The grapes are fermented in small cement vats. The wine is aged for 18 months in oak barrels (50% new) according to the Bordeaux tradition: malolactic fermentation in casks, rackings to separate the fine wine from the lees, fining with egg whites and, if necessary, light filtration.
Champagne Duval Leroy Brut Reserve NV
Champagne Duval Leroy Brut Reserve NV
品種：Chardonnay, Pinot Noir
Duval Leroy is one of the only independent and family owned prestige Champagne houses left in the famous region, and this personal investment in the house's wines results in truly spectacular Champagne's. This non vintage Brut has a wonderful full-bodied nature with a rich, creamy mousse supported with great lemon and lime zest. A delicious effervescence continues on the long and elegant finish.
91 Points Wine Spectator:
A fresh, finely knit version that meshes a silky mousse and delicate acidity with a subtle flavor range, including rich hints of toasted brioche, blackberry, spun honey, lemon zest and smoked almond. A fine aperitif in terms of weight and balance, but in a slightly richer style. Drink now through 2020.
91 Points Wine & Spirits :
This delivers a lot of fresh fruit through the lush feel of its bubbles, bringing scents of raspberry, plum and juicy pear up out of the glass. For all its generosity, the wine follows a clean, crisp line. It’s a fine aperitif to serve with saucisson.
Chateau Cantemerle 2009 UJS95/WE92/WA91/WS91 波爾多5級莊
Chateau Cantemerle 2009
Blend: 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 6% Cabernet Franc
95 pts James Suckling:
Gorgeous ripe fruit character, with loads of blueberries, blackberries and flowers. Full body, with velvety tannins and a fruity, fresh, grapefruit aftertaste. Really beautiful. Best ever from here. Best after 2018.
92 pts Wine Enthusiast:
Very structured wine, with black currant fruit and dense acidity. The tannins are dark, firm, solid. This is a fine wine from Cantemerle, reveling in the richness of the vintage.
91 pts Wine Advocate:
Readers looking for the more ethereal, elegant side of Bordeaux need search no further than Cantemerle, one of the estates in the very southern end of the Medoc. Dense ruby/purple (nearly opaque), this wine offers up notes of lead pencil shavings, spring flowers, raspberries and black cherries. The wine is ethereal, medium-bodied, and by no means a blockbuster, but long and intellectual. However, the tannins are present, and the wine is certainly capable of putting on weight with time in the bottle. Give it 3-4 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 25+ years.
Chateau Fleur Cardinale 2006 RP91/ST91 波爾多右岸列級
Chateau Fleur Cardinale 2006
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."
Chateau Camensac 2010 (NM90) 波爾多五級莊
Chateau Camensac 2010
產區 : Haut Medoc, Bordeaux
品種 : Cabernet Sauvignon, merlot
90 points Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, March 2014:
Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Chateau Camensac 2010 has a tightly wound bouquet with blackberry, wild hedgerow, cedar and cigar box scents that demand coaxing. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, chalky tannins. There are plenty of potent tobacco notes here with a touch of spice on the finish. It is a little introverted at the moment, this should develop nicely with several years in the cellar. Tasted January 2014.
Clos du Marquis 2006 雄獅副牌 JS92-94/WS92/WE91
Clos du Marquis 2006 雄獅副牌
92-94 pts James Suckling, WineSpectator.com, March 2007
Wonderful aromas of blackberries, minerals and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with a lovely core of cool fruit. Racy and caressing tannins. Excellent. 13.2 percent Cabernet Franc--more than normal. Better structured than normal, too.
92 pts Wine Spectator:
Offers violet and blackberry on the nose, with tar. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a fruity, minerally aftertaste. Long and silky. Very serious for the vintage. Best after 2013.
91 pts Wine Enthusiast :
A beautifully perfumed, dark-colored wine, bursting with black plums and violet perfumes. It is, on the surface, delicious, but taste beneath that and it becomes complex and dark, with immense but velvet tannins, suggesting considerable potential.

The 2006 Clos du Marquis has a typical bouquet for this cru with forward and lavish black cherries, cassis and incense aromas, perhaps more oaky than some of its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with an insistent grip in the mouth. This is surprisingly backward with impressive density. You can feel the weight of black fruit in the mouth, although it needs more finesse and precision on the finish. Give this another five years and you could have a "dark horse" on your hands.
