Chambolle-Musigny 1er Les Noirots, Sigaut 2008

【 “香爆了,迷死人” Chambolle-Musigny】這個勃艮地村 最能表現出黑皮諾Pinot Noir 的優雅、精巧細致,有Queen of Burgundy 之稱。今日介紹一款低調樸實的酒莊Domaine Anne Et Herve Sigaut 2008年的一級田“Les Noirots” (如圖示)  ,BH89-91。  莊主夫婦Anne & Hervé 共同負責莊園的所有事務,根據 lunar calendar 的曆法時間打理葡萄園,並遵循著生物動力法來釀造。

風格是細膩典雅,純淨透明,沒有過分的萃取。酒體本身在年輕時就綻放出新鮮的果味花香散發著誘惑力,08年已有10年陳年,香氣會更突出及複雜,平衡的酸度和礦物骨架則又賦予其相當的陳年潛力。

*89-91 pts Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (37), January 2010:* 

A very pure red and blue berry fruit nose complements the sweet, round and delicious middle weight flavors that possess good acid support on the moderately firm, persistent and beautifully vibrant finish. This too is very Chambolle in character that isn't quite as elegant as the Chatelots but offers more complexity.

HK$420

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.

90 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal (Jan 2012)

"It has a light but well defined bouquet with notes of redcurrant, boysenberry, mint leaf and cedar with good intensity and vigour. It reminds more of Las-Cases ’81 in some ways. The palate is medium-bodied with a dry, quite savoury entry, powdery and slightly edgy tannins. The fruit appears to be fading although the secondary flavours and compensating with touches of Chinese 5-spice, orange zest, dried blood and sandalwood. Classic old skool St-Julien towards the finish that has moderate length." 

91 points Wine Spectator (Oct 1994) : Polished, big, dark-colored, with rich and opulent aromas and flavors and loads of tobacco, cedary and berry character. 

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Oct 1989): A top success for the vintage, the 1981 Gruaud-Larose is dark ruby, with a full-intensity bouquet of ripe black currants, spicy oak, plums, leather, smoked meat, and violets. This wine is concentrated on the palate, with rich, tannic, lingering flavors.

Chateau Haut Bages Liberal 2004

90 points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (171), June 2007:

Another sleeper of the vintage, this under-priced, beautifully made Pauillac exhibits a deep ruby/purple color along with a sweet bouquet of creme de cassis, licorice, tapenade, and spice box. Medium to full-bodied with silky tannin and low acidity, it is a pure, expressive wine to drink over the next 12-15 years.

17+/20 Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, August 2005:

Liquid purple, relatively opulent on the nose. Quite deep and trying very hard. Attractive spiciness and no excess of dryness of tannin. Well managed and well balanced. The only reproach one might make is that it is a little mild and low key - but then so is Lafite. Quite a bit of weight. Very vigorous. Very good! Very fine tannins, there in abundance. It's worth remembering that as far as I know none of the merchants who tear round Bordeaux like me tasting wines en primeur taste blind. My note was made, exactly as it appears above (plus typos), on the basis of a sample of whose identity I was entirely ignorant. Drink 2013-20.

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

The new wood flavors on this wine are becoming well integrated with the velvet fruit textures. The tannins are now an adjunct to the fruit, which shows fresh spice and sweetness. It is becoming a fine, balanced wine, delicate and perfumed.

90 pts Wine Spectator:

There's lovely fruit in this wine, with berry, chocolate and plum aromas and flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. A very balanced Kirwan. Best from 2011 through 2016. 7,080 cases made.

Chateau La Croix de Gay Pomerol 2009

Region: Pomerol, Bordeaux, France 

93 pts Wine Enthusiast:

Powerful tannins give this wine its dense, concentrated character. It is dark and dense, very dry at this stage and needing at least 10 years to round itself out. However, the presence of fruit promises a good future.

90 pts Wine Advocate:

A blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc from this well-situated vineyard on the plateau of Pomerol, which is owned by Chantal Lebreton, this wine has 13.5% alcohol, somewhat low in this vintage, but it displays plenty of kirsch, sweet cherries and red currants along with some sandy/loamy soil and roasted herb notes in a very sexy, up-front, lush, medium to full-bodied style.

88 pts Wine Advocate:

"A sweet, superficial, but attractive effort, the 2000 La Fleur-Gazin reveals chalky tannin in the finish. A dark ruby/purple color is accompanied by ripe plum, prune, and berry fruit, medium body, and plenty of structure as well as tough tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2014."

Chateau Monbousquet 2003

93 pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Aug 2014):

From a mixture of sand, gravel, and clay soils, this unheralded terroir produces wines well-above its pedigree thanks to the extraordinary efforts of proprietors Chantal and Gerard Perse. The wines are given a 4- to 5-week maceration in both stainless steel and oak, and are aged sur-lie in new oak. The dark ruby/purple-colored 2003 offers up notes of smoky meats, melted licorice, jammy black cherries, spice box, earth, and cedar. This plump, fleshy, sexy, unfined, unfiltered wine represents a classic blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Chateau Musar 2004
產區:Bekaa Valley, Lebanon
品種:Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Carignan

91 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2004 Chateau Musar is an equal blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Cinsault. This is a rather civilized, laid back Musar... Its balance, combining the nice fruit, elegant mid-palate, persistent finish and backbone, gives it a tightly wound, precise and focused demeanor. The tannins are not completely integrated, but not overly hard. They provided some welcome grip and vibrancy and never overwhelmed the wine. In the long run, they should serve this wine in good stead. Overall, it is an exceptionally graceful, somewhat modern and restrained Musar, bright, with that silky texture I saw in the Hochar reviewed this issue, while adding those layers of concentration. The cherry on top is the intensity of fruit flavor – bursts of delicious and juicy fruit on the finish, admittedly nuanced by some of the gamey notes I see here so often. Call it raspberry flavored, though, because the fruit is delicious. The gamey notes were in fact moderate and, at least for my taste, not an issue. As this rather subtle Musar aired out, I liked it more and more. I’ve had Musars that were bigger, burlier, more rustic and more astringent. Here, the subtle start was unremarkable, but it gathered steam, showed remarkable finesse and then won me over. This will certainly do better with food. Drink now-2021.

另外,1999年在著名酒評人 Hugh Johnson “ The World Atlas of Wine “ 中被評為 “ 1001 WINES YOU MUST TASTE BEFORE YOU DIE “,黎巴嫩的 Chateau Musar 是地中海東部最傑出的酒莊。這個世界級酒莊的成功故事,充滿着令人尊敬的奮鬥和堅持執着的態度。 Very high alcohol, high acidity and a lot of extract - the wine was rich, round and full bodied, highly concentrated with a very long finish.

分級:波爾多中級莊

品種 : 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot

評分: Jancis Robinson MW 16/20 , JancisRobinson.com, October 2009

Lightish crimson. Not quite pure on the nose. But smooth and silky and rather unusual for a 2007. Was it heavily fined? It does easy duty as an early-drinking 2007 anyway even if it does not speak very strongly of St-Estèphe.

86 points WINE SPECTATOR: A medium-bodied red, with spice and berry character, slightly chewy tannins and a medium finish. A little lean now, but should soften and fill out with some bottle age. Best after 2011. 16,665 cases made. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2010

Chateau Poujeaux 1999 (cru Bourgeois exceptionnel)

88 points Wine Advocate :
This charming, full-bodied 1999 is a sleeper of the vintage. It reveals beautiful, sweet fruit redolent with notes of raspberries, black currants, and spicy wood. The wine is soft, velvety-textured, yet concentrated, with good delineation. It is a strong effort in 1999. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2013.

Known in the 14th century under the name of "La Salle de Poujeaux", Château Poujeaux has belonged to the Theil family since 1921. Jo Gryn of Gault- Millau magazine describes the wine as follows: "An authentic aristocrat among the great wines of the Médoc, a great growth disguised as a Cru Bourgeois". The château has long had an excellent reputation based on its virtual obsession with quality. Poujeaux is always deep in colour, with a subtle bouquet and soft, silky tannin that is never aggressive even when the wine is young. Château Poujeaux is powerful, elegant, charming and well-balanced. The Theil family's policy is trying to always to improve their wine and to do justice to the estate's outstanding terroir. There is every reason to believe that this excellent estate is headed for an even brighter future

96 pts Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (219), June 2015:

Tasted blind against the Rieussec 2001 as a comparison, the Château Rieussec 2005 has a more airy bouquet at first and here I find more mineralité on the nose, more precision and focus that the Rieussec 2001. The palate is clean and fresh with vibrant acidity, real tension here with marmalade, lemon curd, apricot and cold stone. Wonderful acidity is interwoven throughout this Sauternes that demonstrates real race and sophistication. It is not as rich or as hedonistic as the Rieussec 2001, but I think the slightly better wine. More breeding and energy. Do not overlook this gem. Drink 2015-2045.

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.

Chateau Talbot 1994

波爾多四級莊

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.

Clarendon Hills Hickinbotham Syrah 2005

97 points Robert Parkers Wine Advocate (Oct 2007): The 2005 Syrah Hickinbotham Vineyard is opaque purple colored with aromas of crushed rocks, toasty oak, tar, licorice, bacon, blueberry, and blackberry. Muscular and large in scale, it will profit from a decade of cellaring and drink well through 2030. (JM)

95 points Wine Spectator (Oct 2007): Big, rich and juicy, with plum, blueberry and a range of sweet spices. The fine tannins wrap around the generous mouthful of flavors, which linger powerfully. A touch of coffee adds interest, and the finish just doesn't quit. Best from 2010 through 2020.

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Sep 2007): Saturated purple. Powerful boysenberry, blueberry and licorice aromas are complicated by an amaro like herbal bitterness, with a vanilla and mocha undercurrent adding another element. Broad, sweet and penetrating dark fruit flavors possess stunning density, with palate saturating depth and power. Do you drink this or eat it ? This displays a compellingly balanced shock and awe personality uniquely its own another otherworldly example of this producer's style.

Clarendon Hills Romas Grenache 2007

93 points Wine Spectator: Firm, slightly gritty in texture, giving way to pure, focused black currant, plum and spice flavors. Weaves in a touch of tar on the long, expressive finish.

91 points Wine Advocate: The 2007 Romas Vineyard Grenache has a medium garnet-purple color and moderately intense dried cherry and mulberry aromas with some spicy fruits of the forest compote and dark chocolate notes. Crisp, concentrated and very spicy on the palate, it offers a medium level of chewy tannins and a long opulent finish.

91 points Wine Enthusiast: The rare Australian Grenache you might consider cellaring for more than a couple of years, the 2007 Romas features dark, plummy fruit accented with hints of coffee and chocolate. It’s full bodied and richly textured without being overly astringent, with a long finish. Drink 2012–2020.

ABOUT THIS VINEYARD:
The Romas Grenache site  is located in Blewitt Springs and was planted in 1920.
The 'Romas Grenache' is the steepest, most elevated section of the Blewitt Springs Grenache vineyard.
its uniquely special characters warrant its isolation and quarantine from the lower part of the Blewitt Springs vineyard.
This patch sits at 280 metres above sea level and is approximately 7 Kms to the ocean.
It enjoys a perfect due East aspect on a hillside that in some places reaches above a +40˚ slope gradient.
The old vines struggle to survive on a steep rock hill face with yields a microscopic 0.5 tonne / acre.
Each of the Blewitt Springs, Romas and Onkaparinga Grenache sites are planted on the same hill side. The Blewitt Springs and Romas patches are due East facing and the Onkaparinga site is at the uppermost hilltop/crown area but is western facing. All sites are within 200 metres of each other and offering special and individual expressions.
These vineyards are globally unique - the unparalleled combination of 95+ year old, pre phylloxera vines planted in the oldest geology planet earth - surveyed at 1600 million years old ;produces rare and exotic exhibitions of Grenache, not seen anywhere else in the world.
Underneath these old vines are primordial, ancient formations. There is a complete lack in nitrogenous matter available for plants/vines seeking nutrient and this results in extremely limited growth capabilities (Romas vines are approx 30 cm tall and each site produces less than 1 tonne / acre.
The environment has effectively reduced the output potential of these vines. The rich and ancient minerals present in the root zone of these special 95+ year old vines also impart rare physiological components to the vines and excellent grapes are a result.

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.

89+ pts Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, May 2016:

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.

The second wine, the sensational 2005 Croix de Beaucaillou, is the finest example of this cuvee I have ever tasted. Sweet black raspberry and black cherry fruit aromas soar from the glass of this open-knit seductress. A dense ruby/purple color, beautiful full-bodied, lush, expansive flavors, low acidity, and sweet tannin suggest this lovely cuvee should be drunk over the next 12-13 years. It is an amazing sleeper of the vintage!

Domaine de la Janasse Cotes du Rhone Blanc 2012

90 points Wine Advocate (Oct 2013):

Starting out, the 2012 Cotes du Rhone Blanc is a brilliant, mostly tank-aged blend of 50% Grenache Blanc, 15% Clairette, 15% Bourboulenc and the balance Viognier and Roussanne (which were aged in barrel). Beautiful stuff, with rich white currants, citrus and tinges of minerality on the nose, it has fantastic freshness and focus on the palate, with clean, nicely defined aromas and flavor. Medium-bodied and perfectly balancing richness and freshness, it should be purchased by the case and consumed over the coming year or two. Drink now.

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.

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.
