著名澳洲釀酒師Chris Ringland主導的西班牙酒款,85%Monastrell, 15% Cab。 
香氣濃郁奔放:黑色水果(偏果脯),甜香料,甘草,藥草還有些煙草等;入口飽滿,單寧強壯但是成熟又細膩,果味的成熟度和濃縮度也很好,最重要的是濃郁的同時有很好的酸度。收尾長,有明顯的藥草味兒。果味的濃縮度,入口的結構感,集中度都比人蒙瓶以為係 意大利的Amarone。建議原瓶醒酒最少3小時。

85% ungrafted Monastrell, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.

2015年份酒評: Wine Spectator 92 (Mar 2019): 
Dense and velvety, this red is packed with ripe blackberry, cocoa and toasty flavors, while black olive and mineral notes keep this balanced. Well-integrated tannins and balsamic acidity impart an unobtrusive structure. A bold, modern style. Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2025.

Prado Enea Gran Reserva, Bodegas Muga 2006

Bodegas Muga是西班牙Rioja產區的重要名莊。酒莊共釀5款紅酒,最貴的是Aro, 然後Torre Muga, Prado Enea, Selection Especial(前排介紹過) 和 Muga Rioja。

若您飲過多次全系列的酒款之後,心目中Muga酒莊釀得最精彩的酒應該是Prado Enea ,屬於老式的Gran Reserva紅酒。而Aro或Torre走的是新式路線,每瓶出廠要價110歐元(Torre 60歐),因為太濃厚,有太多新木桶香氣,不是我心目中的傳統Rioja;連酒莊第三代的經營者與釀酒師Manu和Jorge Muga都私下承認釀造這款酒只是要證明他們也有能力釀出美國酒評家Robert Parker喜好的高分酒。 p.s. 呢位酒評家退休了,聽聞很多澳洲酒莊不再追求爆香、落重本用新桶的technical wine, 開始還原基本步,釀造terroir driven wine, 以表現風土特質。這樣大家以後就可以飲到不同風味的澳洲酒了。

Rioja Prado Enea Gran Reserva, Bodegas Muga 2006, 葡萄品種:70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha and the remaining 10% Mazuelo and Graciano, 橡木桶內發酵,不控制溫度,不添加酵母。浸漬期時間長短不定,但可以持續長達20天。將葡萄酒在大橡木桶中陳釀12個月之後,再在橡木桶中陳釀36個月,最後入樽陳釀最少36個月,才出售。

*98 pts James Suckling*
A powerful and layered red with ripe berry, cedar and licorice notes. Roses and sandalwood. Full body, very deep and intense. Changing all the time in the glass. A superb wine. Drink or hold.

*96 pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate*
The 2006 Prado Enea is a phenomenal bottle of traditional Rioja at its best. A blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha and the remaining 10% Mazuelo and Graciano aged for a long time in oak and bottled before release. This is a practice quite common from yesteryear, but that is a true rarity today. The technical data provided talks about incredible parameters, 14% alcohol and a pH of 3.39, both extremely low for a warm vintage like 2006. The grapes are sourced from higher-altitude terraced plots where the climate is cooler and drier and the soils are rich in clay. This is a wine that is not automatically produced every year. The wine spends its elevage in oak containers of different size, origin and age for no less than three years. The nose is intoxicating with a superb mixture of tertiary and more primary aromas like old furniture, cloves, cracked pepper, incense and cigar ash plus cherries in liqueur (that Garnacha!). The palate is medium-bodied, with great freshness (Jorge Muga tells me the pH is stabilized with aging in barrel), acidity and balance, with a silky texture, ultra-fine tannins and great persistence and length. This wine feels younger than it is, and seems to be aging at a glacial pace. With the stuffing and balance it has this should make very old bones, and drink greatly throughout its life. Superb! At this quality level the price seems like a bargain. 90,000 bottles produced. The next Prado Enea will be 2009 as they didn't get what they look for in this wine in either 2007 and 2008. Those were two cold vintages, and 2007 had 100 liters of rain during the harvest. Prado Enea is harvested in November and in 2008 there was frost at the end of October.

Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Reservee 2014

WS93/JS91/WA90

*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.

Vega Sicilia 買下了15公里外的破產的Bodegas Liceo, 成立Alion, 目標是"Born to make History" 。1991年成為莊主Pablo Alvarez 第三個仔(大仔酒王Unico, 二仔Valbuena, 和96年出世的細仔Pintia)。100% Tempranillo, 來自靚區Ribera del Duero的靚村Valbuena, Pesquera, Padilla, 30年樹齡, 14個月全新法國最出名橡木桶(Radoux/Taranssaud/Saury/Vicard), 出售前入瓶再15個月以上係酒窖陳年。

95 pts Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (205), February 2013:

If I was asked to hold up a bottle of what modern Ribera del Duero should taste like and what is should aspire to, the 2008 Alion would be the one in my hand. It has more intensity and volume on the nose when compared directly with the 2007. Tasted in February 2012, and then in January 2013, it remains a fabulous expression of Ribera del Duero. It boasts of heavenly bouquet of black plum, crushed violets and tobacco that soar from the glass, while displaying a level of delineation that would serve a lesson to many of its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, silky-smooth tannins that belie the structure underneath. The acidity lends the 2008 a little more edginess than the 2007, while the finish has a wonderful sense of symmetry and focus. World class. Drink 2016-2025+.

此款香檳 Charles Heidsieck Rose Reserve 以80% 當年採收的葡萄(Chardonnay、Pinot Meunier、Pinot Noir 各三分之一)加上20% 的陳釀酒液(Chardonnay、Pinot Noir各半)而釀製調配出的粉紅香檳。在裝瓶後,會送到歷史超過兩千年的地底酒窖進行瓶中二次發酵和陳年,地窖是羅馬時期的石灰岩,終年恆溫恆濕,這樣的環境造就香檳有著更細緻精巧的風味,經過至少5年的漫長陳年,才出廠。

*95 pts Decanter*
Twinkling salmon lights in the glass. Intriguing citrus aromas pour out, backed up by toasty, honeyed tones. The Pinot Noir character really shows through in a rich, opulent style. This rosé Champagne would be delicious with seafood.

*93 pts Wine Spectator*
A rich and toasty version, with vibrant acidity driving the expressive range of crème de cassis, ground coffee, toasted brioche, candied ginger and lemon parfait. Long and creamy on the well-spiced, expansive finish.

*93 pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate*
The new release of Heidsick's NV Rosé Réserve is based on the 2012 vintage, with the usual 20% of reserve wines and some 6% still red wine from Les Riceys in the Aube. Already exhibiting considerable complexity, it wafts from the glass with scents of orange rind, red plums, gingerbread and red berries. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny textured and fleshy, with lively acids and an attractively vinous profile. It was disgorged a few months ago with 11 grams per liter dosage.

Lopez de Heredia Vina Bosconia 2007 TA96/JS95/WA93

Hong Kong Price 價錢:
HK$400
Spain, Rioja
HK$400HK$360

★布根地風格的Rioja
★TA96/JS95/WA93//vivino4.1(854酒評)

Bosconia是一款非常芳香而且充滿女性特色的Rioja,緊緻的結構感加上豐富的水果特質,令其在長達5年的桶陳時間裡愈加優雅。如今飲起來仍是恰似精緻的輕熟女,不失新鮮的活力,不沾塵灰的純淨。

Vina Bosconia是裝於布根地型酒瓶中,原因很簡單,因為一開始這個葡萄園主要種植就是黑皮諾Pinot Noir ,這是創莊莊主Rafael Lopez de Heredia y Landeta先生為了仿效法國布根地而開發出來的葡萄園,一直十九世紀末,這個園高比例Pinot Noir所釀造出來的紅酒,還一直命名為 “Rioja Cepa Borgona”(布根地品種Rioja紅酒)。
作為Rioja地區最古老的三家酒莊之一,R.Lopez de Heredia是少部分仍保持家族式經營的酒莊。釀造這款酒的葡萄均來自於海拔465米左右的El Bosque葡萄園,平均樹齡約為40年。El Bosque葡萄園面積為十五公頃,其中十一公頃為Tempranillo,兩公頃為Garnacho,以及各一公頃的Mazuelo和Graciano。秉持酒莊的傳統,Vina Bosconia Tinto Reserva同樣在大型橡木桶中進行陳年培醞長達五年,裝瓶後必須再經過六到八年的瓶中陳年才能上市。

*96 pts Tim Atkin*
The Bosconia vineyard, which has always been vinified separately at the winery, has more clay in the soil and tends to produce richer, plumper wines that are priced below Tondonia. This cuvée of Tempranillo with 10% Garnacha and 5% each of Graciano and Mazuelo has caressing sweetness, supple tannins and notes of dill and tobacco. 2019-28

*95 pts James Suckling*
A stunning vintage of this Rioja classic. Ripe and concentrated, yet cool and delicate with tons of fine tannin. Lots of earthy, autumnal Burgundy-like nuances, as well as notes of violets and plums. Long, complete finish. Drink or hold.

*93 pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate*
2006 was a hard year to follow, even if 2007 was a great year in Rioja and exceptional for López de Heredia. The 2007 Viña Bosconia Reserva shows a little tannic, fulfilling the reputation for being a more rustic wine than Viña Tondonia. There are notes of chocolate-covered cherries and hints of forest floor. Maybe with a little more time in bottle? 70,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2014.

Rioja Alta 最精華葡萄園中心的Haro,名莊林立,其中簡稱為CVNE 的Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España(西班牙北方葡萄酒公司),創立於1879年,堪稱利奧哈最重量級的老字號酒廠。

雖然隨著時代的進步更新了大多的釀酒設備,但在CVNE酒廠中留著的是百年傳承的熱血,雖然也推出充滿現代風格且貴價的特別酒款,但在旗下眾多品牌當中,最知名的當然首推”Imperial”,這個從1920年開始生產上市的酒款,全部以來自位於Villalba和Haro的自有葡萄園,其中85%為Tempranillo並混合約15%的Graciano和Mazuelo,手工採收並嚴格篩選最健康且成熟度最佳的葡萄,只限定在最好的年份生產”Gran Reserva”,通常經過10年以上的陳年才會推出市場,酒香熟美複雜,酒質精緻、風格優雅,而且具備陳年實力。

*93 pts Wine Advocate:*
The 2007 Imperial Gran Reserva is again a great wine in the making. Red fruit and plenty of spices (nutmeg), the palate shows great acidity and abundant tannins that need resolving with time in bottle. Great tension and nerve. I think it will take some time to be released, which is good as it will require some patience. Drink 2016-2021.

*93 pts Stephen Tanzer,* International Wine Cellar, September 2014:
Brilliant ruby-red. Complex, highly perfumed scents of red fruit preserves, vanilla, woodsmoke and sandalwood, with a sexy floral quality in the background. Quite concentrated for the vintage, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors firmed by a spine of minerality. Closes smooth, broad and spicy, with outstanding focus and fine-grained tannins. While one could enjoy this wine immensely right now, my guess is that it has at least a good decade-plus of life ahead of it.

Bollinger Special Cuvée Brut NV Champagne

香檳中的翹楚Bollinger出品,時尚感十足,入口簡直就是香氣炸彈,太好飲了!

大家都知道調配香檳是一門混合藝術,而最能體現酒莊底蘊的,當數無年份香檳,這款Special Cuvee Brut中85%的葡萄都來自於特級園和一級園,並混入了10 %超過15年的老年份香檳。它的表現你可以在各大酒評機構中找到近乎完美的評價:

Wine Advocate:散發著清新、濃郁的柑橘類水果、甜櫻桃,成熟的蘋果、白花、吐司、核桃、杏子和桃子的香氣,還有一點奶油蛋糕的味道。口感上,這是一款強烈、優雅、精緻的Cuvee,回味令人垂涎三尺。你淪陷了嘛?

Bollinger 是一個可回溯到十五世紀的傳統高貴的香檳品牌,在歷經五世紀的洗禮後,至今依然以香檳界三顆星的最高榮耀,屹立不搖。

*93 pts Wine Spectator:*
Complex aromas and flavors of rose, grilled nuts, citrus and a gently oxidative note course through this muscular, full-bodied bubbly. Despite its power, there's a gracefulness. The aftertase combines citrus and spice.

*91+ pts Wine Advocate* (30/04/2019):
Disgorged six months ago, the latest rendition of the NV Brut Special Cuvée was bottled in 2015, and while its core derives from the 2014 vintage, it contains fully 60% reserve wines. The wine wafts from the glass with a classic bouquet of apples, pear, walnut oil and clear honey, followed by a medium to full-bodied palate that's broad-shouldered and Pinot Noir-driven, with a pinpoint mousse, nice tension at the core and a delicately chalky finish. Gilles Descotes commented that one of his biggest challenges is finding enough wine raised in wood to make the Special Cuvée in years where Grandé Année is producedand to that end, Bollinger is significantly expanding its barrel program to ferment even more base wine in used oak.

Henri Giraud是唯一一家僅用香檳地區生產的橡木桶的香檳酒莊。莊主Claude Giraud堅持用100%橡木桶陳釀,而製作橡木桶的木材全部來源於Aÿ村旁邊的Argonne森林,手工劈片後再進行多年乾燥。寒冷的氣候讓Argonne的老橡木緊密精緻,可以與酒香完美的融合。

這種珍稀的釀造方法賦予酒莊的葡萄酒馥郁的果香與極佳的複雜度,這是其它一些酒莊無法匹及的。ESPRIT香檳系列是讓人們初窺酒莊釀製香檳的精髓,體會Aÿ風土的絕妙滋味,體驗氣泡的喜悅。

*91 pts Decanter :*
Esprit Nature is the perfect entry-level Champagne for lovers of vinous and dense Champagne. With notes of orchard fruits, spices and almonds, it offers its full scope in the mouth with a delicious texture. 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay, based on 2016 and with 50% reserve wines.

*90 pts Antonio Galloni,*
The NV Esprit Nature is a classic Henri Giraud wine built on texture and creaminess. An increase in the percentage of Pinot Noir is one of the reasons the Esprit is so rich and inviting in this release. Red berry, dried flowers, mint and brioche notes build into the textured, resonant finish. All the elements fall into place in an effortless, gracious Champagne to savor over the next few years. Dosage is 7.5 grams per liter.

酒莊歷史
1625 年, Francois Hemart 來到香檳區的愛伊〈Ay〉,並在此安頓下來,展開了釀酒的職志。20 世紀初,Leon Giraud Hemart家族之女結婚後,即利用嫁接技術重建葡萄園。1950年代,Hemart香檳酒莊以現任酒莊主人Claude 的父親為名,改名為Henri Giraud並沿用至今。並為了紀念創始人,創立了Francois Hemart的品牌,彰顯其光榮的歷史!
目前,Giraud-Hemart家族由第 12 代繼承人Claude Giraud 掌舵,一改以往只保留旗下酒款給法國及義大利等地的習慣, 把Henri Giraud香檳推展到國際市場,和更多酒迷分享這來自自香檳區精華葡萄園的佳釀。

愛伊〈Ay〉─卓越的香檳區特級園
過去 10個世紀以來,愛伊所產出的酒總被評選為世界上最優質、經典的佳釀。法王亨利四世曾說:“如果我不是國王,我願意作為封地在愛伊的王子”,因而被暱稱為『愛伊爵士』。16 世紀初,愛伊並成為法國國內及國際間唯一榮獲了 AOC 品質認證的葡萄產區。
17 世紀末,由於愛伊特有的風土條件再加上一群頂尖的釀酒人才,始能孕育出這名聲遠播的氣泡酒,在當時被稱做『愛伊酒』。直到1887 年,才出現了『香檳』的名稱。時至今日,香檳區的324個葡萄園中,只有 17 個被列為最出色的特級園Grand Cru,愛伊更是其中深具歷史意含以及地理指標的重心。

★JS91/AG90/vivino3.9(7520酒評)

Bellavista Alam Gran Cuvee Franciacorta Brut NV

產區: Franciacorta DOCG/Italy
品種: 77% Chardonnay, 22% Pinot Nero, 1% Pinot Bianco.

Bellavista 被最新的2017年《大紅蝦》雜誌評為全意大利“年度最佳酒莊”。

今日介紹呢款Franciacorta獲得大紅蝦三杯獎,Bellavista是大紅蝦二星酒莊,當之無愧的Franciacorta翹楚。呢款Alma從1977年開始釀造,採用傳統工藝釀造,由來自Franciacorta十個不同地區10個地塊精選的葡萄混合調配釀造的,並且添加了6~9年齡的珍藏酒,一方面增加了酒的複雜度,另一方面又保證了品質的穩定性。 Alma的拉丁語含義是“滋養”,表達了對Franciacorta土壤滋養生命,創造奇蹟的敬意。其目標是釀造最純淨和諧的氣泡酒,代表了Franciacorta和Bellavista的風格。

Bellavista自成立以來就在莊主Vittorio Moretti先生的帶領下,成為了葡萄酒界的時尚先鋒,內外兼修。自2004年起,便是米蘭La Scala劇院的官方合作夥伴暨供貨商,並與一些奢侈品牌保持著深入的合作。

Franciacorta 產區介紹:
風景如畫的意大利Franciacorta,生產出了風味獨特的高品質氣泡酒。與香檳一樣,Franciacorta產區的氣泡酒主要以Chardonnay和Pinot Nero 葡萄釀製,有時也添加一點Pinot Bianco。並且,其釀製方法同香檳的二次發酵法無異。

此產區葡萄園面積達 2,283公頃,年產量約1000萬瓶,受可用種植面積所限,最高生產潛力僅可達到2,500萬到3,000萬瓶。這與法國香檳產區32,900公頃的種植面積及其3.2億瓶的產量相差懸殊。Franciacorta產區氣泡酒生產商稱,這裡有著與眾不同的氣候、土壤等條件,周邊有起伏的丘陵和覆蓋著白雪的群山,湖邊以及山上微冷的風給葡萄帶來清爽和香氣。該地區土質類似於香檳區,氣候相比較而言要暖和一些,這使葡萄成熟得更好。而且其釀造方法上也有很多獨到的細節,使其產品獨具風味。

*91 pts James Suckling* :
"Pretty aromas of bread dough, lemon and cooked apple. Fresh. Medium to full body, tangy acidity and a fruity finish. Always an outstanding sparkling wine. Drink now."

*90 pts Antonio Galloni:*
It has a lively and persistent mousse with fine perlage. It is an attractive pale yellow in colour, with green reflections. Perfumes of white flowers and stone fruits, with subtle hints of vanilla, which follow through on to the palate. Fine, elegant yet rounded and beautifully balanced. The grapes used are 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Bianco and Pinot Nero. The mousse is white, lively and persistent, the bubbles small and long-lasting.

The 2005 Shiraz “Springflat” was aged for 18 months in 50% new French oak with the balance equal portions of seasoned French and American oak. It emits an alluring bouquet of cedar, saddle leather, boysenberry, mulberry, blackberry, and blueberry compote. Opulent, layered, with tons of flavor nicely concealing a blanket of ripe tannins, this superb Shiraz will evolve for 6-8 years and drink well through 2025.

A stellar wine with incredible density, concentration and personality. Soft, smooth and supple until those still-young tannins appear on the close, giving the wine a firm backbone.

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is gorgeous. It may be the very best wine I have ever tasted from San Polo. Sweet red cherries, flowers, mint and spices are woven together beautifully in this juicy, sexy Brunello. The 2007 keeps getting better with time in the glass. Readers looking for a Brunello that will drink well with a minimum of cellaring will find a lot of pleasure here. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.

Altesino Brunello di Montalcino 2010

產區:Tuscany, Italy

品種:100% Sangiovese

Altesino, Brunello di Montalcino 2010 (JS95/RP93) 表現得比較陰柔,有香草、香料類等比較複雜的香氣,口感細滑、優雅,有點飄逸, 可能因為我們習慣了 Brunello 的濃妝,北區的淡然看上去更似素顏、更具風土。 Altesino位處Montalcino 北區的。因北區比較涼,常常比中、南部的酒較圓潤或者平衡,更多風土的特點。然而,北區從來都是這個出名產區最不起眼的後花園,因為長久以來,當紅酒評人把光環全加在中、南部酒莊的頭上。 

95 points James Suckling (Dec 2014):  Wonderful decadent aromas of musk, orange peel and plum follow through to a full body, with soft tannins and a long and rich finish. Salty and savory. Layers of gorgeous fruit. Drink or hold. 

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Feb 2015):  Altesino's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino stands proud among its peers. No other wine I tasted among the new releases in Montalcino achieves this unique level of aromatic finesse and distinction. The bouquet is almost purely floral in character with a strong emphasis on pressed rose petal, dried violets and potpourri. The fruit tones are less emphatic and include bright cherry and red currant. In the mouth, the wine's compressed texture is accented by fennel seed and licorice. the 2009 vintage had more power and heat, but this version shows elegant restraint. 93+ (ML) 

93 points Wine Spectator (Jun 2015): Expressive aromas of eucalyptus, juniper and wild rosemary give way to sweet berry flavors, though the juniper, rosemary and emerging mint accents linger. This is like a walk in the woods, with a fresh, elegant frame. Best from 2017 through 2030.

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.

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.”

Wine Spectator 2017年度 Top 100 第17名的西班牙 樹齡45-75年的 Old Vines Monastrell。 熟莓、黑桑子, 第二香氣(second aroma) pepper、乾果、礦物未係好出,若隱若現。酒體飽滿,填滿口腔,漿果一陣陣出黎,收尾有一絲絲漿果甜。

Robert Parker:  "This is one of the top value wineries in all of Spain. They produce an amazing amount of inexpensive, high-quality wine that sells for a song." 

93pts Jeb Dunnuck: 
From old vines and aged 14-16 months in French oak, the 2015 Tarima Hill sports an inky color as well as a smoking bouquet of black raspberries, blueberries, pepper, and dried flowers. It's broad, expansive, and sweetly fruited, with a great mid-palate and sweet tannin. It's a sexy fruit bomb done with class!

92 pts Wine Spectator (Dec 2017): 
This red shows grace and depth. Black cherry, plum, mineral and smoke flavors mingle harmoniously over well-integrated tannins, while lively acidity keeps this focused. Not showy, but all the pieces fit together. Balanced, in the modern style. Drink now through 2025.

Chateau de Saint Cosme Gigondas Valbelle 2009 (WS94)

Blend: 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah

#10 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

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

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

Fattoria Le Pupille SAFFREDI 2011

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

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

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

西班牙國寶級Vega-Sicilia 加持,飲家必選: Vega Sicilia Alion 2013 

Vega Sicilia 買下了15公里外的破產的Bodegas Liceo, 成立Alion, 目標是"Born to make History" 。1991年成為莊主Pablo Alvarez 第三個仔(大仔酒王Unico, 二仔Valbuena, 和96年出世的細仔Pintia)。100% Tempranillo, 來自靚區Ribera del Duero的靚村Valbuena, Pesquera, Padilla, 30年樹齡, 14個月全新法國最出名橡木桶(Radoux/Taranssaud/Saury/Vicard), 出售前入瓶再15個月以上係酒窖陳年。

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

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."

 96pts Wine Spectator : 
There's a lot going on here, with a big core of yellow apple, white peach and wet straw notes offset by accents of citrus oil and bitter almond. A hint of brioche shows on the finish, but this is decidedly stony in feel at the end. The elements should meld beautifully with cellaring. Best from 2016 through 2026. 

 91 pts Jeb Dunnock(eRobertParker.com) :
The 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc incorporates slightly less Grenache Blanc than normal and has more Bourboulenc and Picpoul in the blend. As always, it didn’t go through malolactic fermentation and was raised all in stainless steel. Hitting 13.6% natural alcohol, its medium-gold color is followed by lots of apple, lemon curd and citrus-like fruit characteristics that give way to more spice, toast and minerality with time in the glass. Vibrant, fresh and borderline racy, while not being lean, it’s an outstanding white that will benefit from a year in bottle and have a graceful evolution for another decade or more. As I commented in my recent retrospective article, Clos des Pape is one of the reference point estates for traditional, age-worthy Châteauneuf du Pape.
