Altesino Brunello di Montalcino 2010 (JS95)
Altesino Brunello di Montalcino 2010
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.
Barbaresco Produttori del Barbaresco 2012
Barbaresco Produttori del Barbaresco 2012 產區： Piedmont, Italy 品種： 100% Nebbiolo 93 Points Wine Spectator - "A graceful and detailed red, marked by ripe cherry, strawberry, floral and tar flavors, with the fruit intensity persisting on the finish, showing excellent length. This is well-integrated and just needs time for the tannins to soften. Best from 2018 through 2030." 92 Points Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "A big, powerful wine, the 2012 Barbaresco hits the palate with surprising depth allied to nervous tannins that are going to need time to soften. Tobacco, smoke, licorice, menthol, game and a host of dark, ferrous notes give the wine much of its virile personality. The 2012 is not as finessed as some recent vintages, yet it offers considerable potential for the future. Most importantly, it is a terrific value at a time when well-priced Barbaresco is increasingly hard to find. In 2012, the Produttori did not bottle their Riservas. When that happens, the straight Barbaresco is often an overachiever. That is certainly the case here, as the 2012 offers outstanding quality for the money, with plenty of potential for the future. I can't think of too many wines that deliver this much pleasure and value."
Barbaresco Vigneto Brich Ronchi, Rocca Albino 1996 WS95/ST94/RP93
Barbaresco Vigneto Brich Ronchi, Rocca Albino 1996
95 points Wine Spectator (2007):
Shows fabulous aromas of crushed berries and fresh flowers. Full-bodied, with a powerful palate of fabulous fruit and ripe tannins. Goes on and on. Still a baby. This is superb.--1996 Piedmont retrospective. Best after 2010. (JS, Web-2007)
94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Nov 1998):
Even deeper red ruby color. Pungently spicy, penetrating aromas of rose petal, violet and red berries. Thick, intensely flavored and sharply delineated, with strong acidity and plenty of buffering extract. This has superb material and outstanding grip and persistence. Firm tannins are in perfect balance with the wine fruit. Wow! This is aged in all new barriques, but I never would have guessed it. 94+ (ST)
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Aug 1999):
The large-scaled as well as compelling 1996 Barbaresco Vigneto Brich Ronchi reveals spectacular aromas of intense chocolate-covered cherry candy intermixed with smoky new wood. It is dense and full-bodied, with layers of concentration and glycerin. This superb, mouth-filling Barbaresco can be drunk now or cellared for 10-15 years.

Barbera d'Alba Ceretto Roberto Voerzio 2013
Barbera d'Alba "Ceretto" Roberto Voerzio 2013
產區：Alba, Piedmont, Italy
“如果不是那些勇敢的生產者減少產量，把精力花在提高意大利葡萄酒的品質上，我們可能永遠不會知道巴貝拉（Barbera）如此美味、複雜、擁有如此巨大的陳年潛力。但是Roberto Voerzio的不僅令自己的名字聞名於世，也印證了Barbera不僅僅是美食的陪伴，更能做到令人刮目相看。 Roberto Voerzio釀造每一款酒都非常的“瘋狂”，這支Barbera也不例外。產量極低，每珠葡萄藤的產量僅有1kg，它的風格深邃細膩，集中度高，同時又有純淨的果香，超長的陳年潛力！
如果你是意粉，一定聽過Roberto Voerzio的大名，他是“醉”好的Barolo釀酒師之一。你絕不會將Voerzio與其他酒莊混起來，因為每一瓶Voerzio中都可以喝到他狂熱的“工匠精神”。 近乎偏執地追求著品質及Barolo地區的風土表現，如果結果不能令他滿意，他寧願選擇放棄。通過嚴格的產量控制和對風土的虔誠，他讓Nebbiolo和Barbera綻放出了前所未有的耀眼魅力。
90 points Antonio Galloni: The 2013 Barbera d'Alba Cerreto is absolutely delicious, and another reminder of just how special this vintage is for Barbera. In 2013, the Cerreto is a bit brighter than it usually is, with plenty of supporting acidity and fabulous overall balance.
Biondi Santi Tenuta Greppo Annata Brunello di Montalcino 2011
Biondi Santi Tenuta Greppo Annata Brunello di Montalcino 2011
93 Points Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous, February 2016:
The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Annata is silky, soft and open-knit, especially within the context of what has been the norm at Biondi Santi for the last few decades. Freshly cut flowers, red berries and mint all open up in the glass, but it is the wine's decidedly mid-weight structure that truly stands out. The 2011 is a very rare young Biondi Santi that will drink well pretty much upon release, as shocked as I myself am to write those words. The bright red cherry, raspberry and floral overtones have an almost Nebbiolo-sense of brightness. Drink 2017-2031
93 Points Monica Larner, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate Feb 2016:
Jacopo Biondi Santi was already making wine at Il Greppo when the 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Annata was produced. His father, Franco Biondi Santi, would pass away in 2013 at the age of 91. The winemaking approach is unchanged despite the father to son transition. This wine shows extra richness and texture with focused fruit aromas that are graceful but also powerful. There are hints of ripe fruit with dried cherry and prune buried deep within the bouquet. In the mouth, this Brunello shows good structure and acidity with a slightly denser feel compared to past vintages.
Biondi-Santi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 1970 Re-corked in 2007(Ask for Photo)
Biondi-Santi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 1970
『不經一番寒徹骨，怎得梅花撲鼻香』老酒便是如此。Brunello的鼻祖 Biondi Santi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 1970, 2007年酒莊換木塞Capsule, 每支附有莊主簽名確認。
Exceptional vintage. A very good season with wet spring and dry summer. A dry harvest. *Re- corked in 2007* . Only grapes that come from the Estate vineyards are vinified. The bottles should be placed vertically at least one week before serving, so that the coloured semi crystalline sediments drop to the bottom. Uncork and pour out a bit of wine from the bottles at least 8 hours before serving.
Bodegas Muga Selection Especial Reserva 2011 JS95/WS93/RP92
Bodegas Muga Selection Especial Reserva 2011
Robert Parker 稱它為"Rioja 的Lafite ", 是西班牙Rioja的頂級靚莊，Twitter上最火爆的酒莊之一，英女王也鍾愛有加。Muga Selection Especial Reserva 2011, JS95/WS93/RP92, 高海拔的梯田葡萄園，6個月新法國橡木桶熟成，再加24個月美國橡木桶。入樽後在酒窖再陳年18個月使之完美。70% Tempranillo, 20%Garnacha, 7% Mazuelo, 3%Graciano
James Suckling 95分:
A complex nose of dried strawberries with slate and white-truffle undertones. Hints of Spanish cedar. Full body, juicy tannins and bright acidity that follows through to a long, clean and earthy finish. A great wine that shows structure and complexity. Drink or hold.
93 Wine Spectator:
This red has a firm backbone and a solid texture, with harmonious flavors of plum, blackberry, licorice, cocoa and espresso. Concentrated yet graceful. Drink now through 2026.
92 Wine Advocate:
The 2011 Reserva Selección Especial, from a warmer and drier year compared with the average (as well as the previous harvest), has a similar blend as the regular Muga Reserva; it is 65% Tempranillo with 20% Garnacha, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo, and it was fermented in small vats with indigenous yeasts. The different varieties and grapes are fermented and aged separately, the first year in new oak and the second one in used barrels. 2011 is a powerful vintage for this cuvée, which now shows quite marked by toasty aromas. Warm vintages usually need longer in bottle to integrate the oak, but experience shows that it gets absorbed and in fact the evolution of this wine in bottle is very good. Even if the nose recommends to wait, the palate is very balanced, with remarkably ripe tannins for such warm year, which can sometime produce some harsh tannins. Not the case here, where the wine shows good elegance and balance. This is a very reliable cuvée, quite stable across vintages.

Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino 2007 WE95/WA93
Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino 2007
95 points Wine Enthusiast:
This 2007 Brunello is a big, opulent pleasure bomb with lavish layers, loaded thickly on top of each other: Chocolate fudge, dark cherry, blackberry preserves, rum cake, prune, exotic spice, pipe tobacco, cola, hummus and leather. It shows huge personality, intensity and staying power too. All that density is backed by solid tannins and a steady firmness. Hold 10–15 more years. Editors' Choice
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino bursts from the glass with freshly cut flowers, violets, leather, licorice and black cherries. Firm underlying tannins lend vibrancy to the voluptuous fruit. The Casanova di Neri straight bottling – sometimes referred to as the “white label” – is made from some of the estate’s cooler sites. In 2007 the wine has more depth, fruit and overall harmony than is typically the case. Bright acidity frames the long, polished finish. In short, this is a fabulous wine from Giacomo Neri. Along with the 2006, the 2007 is one the best and most complete vintages I can remember tasting in some time. Most importantly of all, though, it is flat-out delicious. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.
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+
Chambolle-Musigny 1er Les Noirots, Sigaut 2008 BH89-91
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。
*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.
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 Belgrave 2010 (波爾多5級莊）
Chateau Belgrave 2010
91 Points Wine Spectator: Ripe and fleshy, with lots of roasted vanilla bean and fresh espresso, followed by dark, winey cassis and blackberry fruit. An intense licorice edge and a solid, tarry finish imparts drive. Best from 2014 through 2023.
As Belgrave improves each year, it reveals a character that is close to the elegance and style of Saint-Julien, right next door. Chateau Belgrave is situated in Haut Medoc , just west of Beychevelle in St Julien . It is also next door to Chateau Lagrange , which is also in St. Julien. Just a few meters further and it could have been in St. Julien. This 2010, while dense, is balanced, and its rich blackberry flavor is already integrating into its firm tannins. This should age well for the medium term.
品種：52% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc
Chateau Beychevelle 1996 波爾多四級莊 (JR17)
Chateau Beychevelle 1996
產區：Saint-Julien, Bordeaux, France
Jancis Robinson 17/20 (Feb 2011):
Developed rim on ruby. Scented and full of minerals. Rather straight backed and upright. Lovely sweetness and delicacy with the tannins completely retreated. Not sickly sweet like some of the more made-up Margaux but a great classic claret that is only medium, even quite lightweight and finishes dry. This doesn’t have that much more to give but it is utterly charming.

Chateau Chasse-Spleen 1999 忘憂堡 超級中級莊
Chateau Chasse-Spleen 1999 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
Chateau Clos de Sarpe 2006 GCC 年產少於1000箱(RP94)
Chateau Clos de Sarpe 2006
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
As I have consistently written in the past, this limited production cuvee, from a 12-acre site that contains a parcel of extremely old vines, 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, is meant to last three decades or more. Tasting like a liqueur of rocks interwoven with creme de cassis, espresso roast, toasty oak, and enormous levels of tannin, it is neither out of balance nor astringent. It is a concentrated, backward, impeccably balanced St.-Emilion made with an uncompromising view of the craft of winemaking. It displays superb intensity, a fabulous texture, a foreboding, tannic overlay, incredibly ripe, pure fruit, and perfectly aligned acidity and tannin. Forget if for a decade, and consume it between 2020-2040.
91+ points Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar, May 2009:
Bright ruby-red. Superripe aromas of blackberry, blueberry, licorice and crushed rock; like a liqueur of botanical herbs. Then dense, sappy and superconcentrated, with a powerful minerality, solid acidity and a note of black pepper perking up the wine's rather clenched core of fruit. Finishes with a boatload of tannins. This almost painfully intense wine, a great success for this chateau, needs up to a decade of cellaring.
這座葡萄園的構成為：三分之二55 歲到 80 歲以上的古老葡萄樹，以及三分之一樹齡在 10 至 25 歲之間的少壯葡萄樹。整片的泥質灰岩山坡坡度非常明顯，面向正南/東南傲然佇立。土壤豐饒、混有碎石，擁有 50 厘米厚的鐵渣亞層及純度極高的石灰基底。葡萄園內的工作均採用純天然工藝。
Chateau D'Aiguilhe 2010 JS93/RP91
Chateau D'Aiguilhe 2008
產區：Cotes de Castillon, Bordeaux
品種：Merlot 80%, Cabernet Franc 20%
平均樹齡：28 years ，土質：Clay-limestone.
91 points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (205), March 2013:
From the brilliant proprietor Stephan von Neipperg, the 2010, a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc that hit 15% natural alcohol, is ripe and intense but exhibits good minerality and freshness as well as lots of blueberry and blackberry fruit, with hints of charcoal, licorice and asphalt. Rich and full-bodied, with no hard edges, this wine should drink beautifully for 10 or more years.
The good news for consumers is that there are over 11,500 cases of this wine, which was produced from the plateau of Saint Philippe d'Aiguilhe, planted on pure limestone and clay.
92/93 points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, April 2011:
This is so good already. What an amazing precision of fruit for this wine, with a blackberry and blueberry character as well as minerals. Full and super silky with lovely fruit. Gourmand. Tasty. I want to drink it. Always great value!
Chateau de Saint Cosme Gigondas Valbelle 2009 (WS94)
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.

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 Gruaud Larose 1981 波爾多二級莊，36年風華正茂
Chateau Gruaud Larose 1981
63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, 3% petit Verdot.
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 波爾多五級莊 RP90/JR17+
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.
Chateau Haut Batailley 2006 波爾多五級莊 (WA91)
Chateau Haut Batailley 2006
91 points Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (231), June 2017:
Tasted at a vertical tasting at the château. The 2006 Haut Batailley is a wine that I have always appreciated and at ten years of age, I have no reason to change that view. It has a such a lively and vivacious bouquet, especially when compared to the sultrier (if ultimately superior 2005 Haut-Batailley). The palate is underpinned by very fine tannin, the acidity quite noticeable but simply lending freshness and tension. There is a sense of this being a Pauillac that is tightly coiled and there is a lot of energy on the finish. This is a great success for the vintage, but if you can wait another couple of years, it should manifest more intriguing secondary notes and turn into a more interesting Pauillac. Tasted July 2016.

91 points James Suckling (Feb 2015):
A very polished red with plum, wet earth, blackberry and spice character. Full body, soft, chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Drink in 2017.
91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (April 2015):
The 2012 Fleur de Boüard (in bottle) offers up copious quantities of dark raspberry, blueberries and spring flowers. It has soft velvety tannins, medium to full body, and a very sexy, lush mouthfeel. This is a gorgeous opaque, ruby/purple Lalande de Pomerol that no one will be able to resist. Drink it over the next decade.
90 points Vinous (AG) (Jan 2016):
The 2012 Fleur de Boüard, from Hubert de Boüard property in Lalande de Pomerol, is an attractive, open-knit wine that will please readers with its inviting personality. Sweet dark cherries, smoke, licorice, game and savory herb nuances add complexity, but it is the wine giving nature that makes it impossible to resist.

產區：Pomerol, Bordeaux , France
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."
