GUESS THE WINNER 猜今晚胜出的酒

I must admit this was an extremely tough pairing, so I’m happy to open this question to the floor, which one do you think it was the consensus winner for tonight?

我碰到了最难的品酒会,这两瓶各有各的美,我接下来会揭晓答案,但是我觉得观众应该猜一猜,你认为那一个89年的波尔多会胜出,而且是12名公正的裁判员的选择。我保留自己的意见,迟点自有分晓。

Domaine Follin-Arbelet Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2009

MEURSAULT ALIKE 相同于莫尔索

This almost fooled me as a Meursault, very thick nose, almost like orange peel. Content was Meursault alike again with slight orange juice and relatively buttery. I don’t come across many Corton Charlemagne of such character, quite unique I must admit!

我差一点以为这是莫尔索出产的葡萄酒,因为鼻子闻起来很浓厚,接近橙皮的味道。内容也差一点忽悠我,因为口感就仿佛橙汁的味道,再加上一些奶油味。我承认不是很多克通查里曼是这样的性格,难得我品到一瓶不一般的科通查里曼!

MYTH OF PREMOX 氧化的解读

99 was a big vintage, so premox was expected. Even Drouhin was inevitable, or was it so? Initially it showed oxidative and sugarcane on the nose. Too big and too ripe on the content, was my last choice in the Laguiche lineup. But I drank the remaining 1/4 bottle, found the premox character disappeared, turned big and elegant, no more harshness.
99是个白酒的大年份,白酒王拉格维奇也不例外存有氧化的问题,还是一般人解读的氧化问题解读错了?一开始鼻子就充斥着氧化和成熟的甘蔗味。内容太大也太成熟了,是今晚五瓶拉格维奇里的排名最后。但是接近11点时,没人理会这瓶剩下的1/4酒,我一个人喝掉。惊讶的是氧化消失了,虽然大款但是也优雅!

Château Courac Côtes du Rhône 2016

APPEALING WINE 吸引人的一面

This was quite an appealing wine, very fruity, and the fruits were quite addictive, very rounded, very flavorful, with a nice balance, downside was a very slight tinch of greenness. However I’m not sure how long it can be stored as tannins were razor thin.

这个酒有着很吸引喝酒人的一面,不深入了解就感觉它很不错。果味非常好喝,容易上瘾。内容很圆滑,很浓厚的果味,平衡力很不错,但是也带有非常微弱的青椒味。我只是不了解这款酒的陈年状态,可能不会超过五年?因为单宁太过薄弱了,所以我相信现在喝比较合适,不要收藏。

CLASSY 高贵

This was the first glass served in the lineup of Marquis de Laguiche, which was absolutely my best white Montrachet, perhaps my best white label. Served blind, 97 was a big surprise, really high class nose, very classy. Flavor wasn’t disappointing either, very stylish, broad and deep, multiple layers, cascading, flavorful but on the elegant side.

格拉维奇的白葡萄酒绝对是我今生喝过最优秀的白布艮第的酒。盲品这杯97年的酒(通常97年的酒一般般),完全被它的高贵气质吸引了!内容也不失望,非常有性格,有姿态,宽而且深远长远的回味,非常多层次感,好像流水瀑布一样,非常温柔的暴力!如果没有其他年份的出现,这瓶真的是完美了!

Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill Brut Champagne 1998

CHURCHILL’S BUBBLE 邱吉尔的泡沫

In memory of the war legend, Pol Roger honored him by putting his name on the champagne itself. It was still a fascinating champagne, the 98 was displaying oxidation and age on the nose, while the body was intense, reductive, very aged, perhaps a bit older than it should be, nevertheless a very enjoyable champagne.

为了纪念邱吉尔对战争的贡献和对香槟的爱好,宝禄爵把邱吉尔的名字放在标签上。不可否认这个香槟的确很好,这款98年带有氧化和陈年的香味,而且内容非常浓厚澎湃,浓缩的香槟很吸引我,很陈年,虽然喝起来感觉上比98年份老,但是完全不阻碍我欣赏这瓶香槟,非常棒!没有喝过陈年的香槟你就不会知道它的吸引力!

Joseph Drouhin Marquis de Laguiche and Musigny Theme

DROUHIN THEMED 杜鲁安的主题

What’s an M&M theme? Very interesting; it’s the top representative of Joseph Drouhin’s wines: Marquis de Laguiche for Montrachet, and Musigny for reds! So, basically it’s a Drouhin night, lineup of white vintages were: 88, 96, 97, 99 and 01. For reds, the vintages represented were 88, 95, 96, 98 and 03. Guess the winner for both red and white?

什么是M&M的主题?就是两个最具有代表性的杜鲁安的酒; 拉格维奇的白酒,还有幕西泥的红酒。代表拉格维奇的年份有88,96,97,99,01。 代表红的年份有88,95,96, 98, 03。你们可以猜猜看那个年份胜出?

Chris Ringland Randall’s Hill Vineyard Shiraz 1997

JAMMY WINE 果酱酒

This was made by 100% Shiraz coming from downunder, only 750 bottles were made. Obviously an over-extracted wine, judging from the extreme 15.8% alcohol content! Nose was intense, loads of blueberries and slightly smoky. Content you can probably imagine; so jammy I’d use it as my breakfast spread! Way too intense, for a while I thought it came from Southern Rhône!

这是一瓶用100%西拉酿造的葡萄酒,来自澳洲,产量少得可怜,才750瓶。你可以想象一下15.8%的酒精是什么概念?对红酒而言根本是超标了!鼻子的香味完全被蓝莓浓罩,带有强烈的果味和淡定的烟熏味。我差一点就把酒当成早餐的果酱涂面包了,可以想象果味有多浓厚?

CULT WINE 极端主义的酒

This was probably an extreme wine to me, as I was told the winemaker produced this wine with NO oak, under-extraction rather than over-extraction, purely a fruit driven wine, totally unadulterated. The result was weird as well, very intense nose, thick and dirty. Body was very pure, very dry and we called it purple wine.

这个牌子简直是瓶极端主义的酒,酿酒师违背了一切酿酒规律;比如不用橡木桶,不用浓缩的挤压葡萄,完全让果味十足的话语权。这样的条件酿出来的酒完全变态,鼻蕾很浓缩,厚而且肮脏(一种很奇怪的感觉)。酒体却非常纯,很干,完完全全就是一种紫色的酒的感觉!

Ridge Monte Bello 1978

SPEECHLESS 无语

This wine silence me! I normally don’t have much good impression on American wine, but I can tell you this bottle was life changing! The content had so much energy going on, and definitely not representative of a Cabernet Sauvignon type of wine, no greenness, no harshness. Big, chunky, beefy, tasty, juicy, silky, seductive, crazy ripeness … bravo!

这瓶酒把我的嘴巴闭上了! 我通常都对美国产的葡萄酒没有什么好感,因为从来就没有喝过一瓶像样的!但是这瓶真的把我旧观念彻底毁了!内容的能量简直不可思议,完全没有赤霞珠的味道,没有青椒,没有粗燥。大款,牛肉口感,有味道,浓厚的果味,柔顺,吸引人的味蕾,完全不可思议的成熟。太棒了!
