Le Petit Haut Lafitte Pessac-Léognan 2015

SUPERB QPR 超值的酒

Second wine of Smith Haut Lafitte, superb quality and super price, especially on a great vintage like 2015, really impressed by the quality. Nose of initial strong berries, mingled with red and black fruits. Content was super soft and silky, with strong fruity content and very grippy tannins. I decanted it for 4 hours to have it tamed down to be pleasant.

史密斯拉菲的副牌酒, 除了拉图的副牌酒我是想不到还有那一款比这个还要好的。性价比非常高,值得拥有。

想像不到竟然是如此柔顺,简直丝绸般的口感,虽然单宁还是有点重。放在醒酒器里4个小时才把它征服了, 后果是融化的单宁和悠长的回味与柔顺的果味。物价比无可替代。

Joseph Drouhin Marquis de Laguiche Montrachet 1999

  Bok's Rating:

INDISPUTABLE 无可取代

For Monctrachet level, Joseph Drouhin’s Marquis de Laguichi Monctrachet was an indisputable and unashamed champion. The bouquet was filled with toffee and ripe oranges. Palate, when chilled, was very tight, primarily orange character. You need to warm up the glass, and suddenly it opened up with generosity, oily, rich and generous layers, one of the best Monctrachet I’ve ever had.

约瑟夫杜鲁安酒庄是一家酒庄无可取代, 他们的特级庄的酒简直是太完美了。开始是橙色的味道,尤其是冰镇的杯子。给点耐心,冰镇后的口感完全不一样,变得胸怀宽广,非常大方和体面,根本就是大将风范,一款最令人难忘的顶尖酒。

Mongalli Calicanto Trebbiano Spoletino Umbria 2012

  Bok's Rating:

ONE DIMENSIONAL

This is made from Trebbiano or Ugni Blanc grape varietal, not something that I’m familiar with. But I do know a bit about Cognacs, which use Ugni Blanc due to it’s high acidity, low sugar levels and resistance to disease. However this bottle was very fruity and quite low on acidity, and relatively sweet, flat depth and simply one dimensional style. I’m actually surprised Ugni Blanc wines tasted like this, very different from my understanding of the grape varietal.

Adriano Langhe Basarico Sauvignon 2015

TASTELESS

I simply don’t understand this Sauvignon Blanc coming from Italy, the nose was muted, no typical grassy character of Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Content was close to tasteless, apart from slight fruits, there’s nothing else memorable. I even had the patience to wait for it to turn warm before concluding this hopeless label. Please write this off and spend your money wisely.

Château Trotanoy 2001

LIGHT BUT POWERFUL 卓龙的雅与强

Acquired by the same owner as Petrus, I always describe this as the poor man’s Petrus. And the people who didn’t know this label were impressed!

Nose of manly and sexy aroma with hints of chocolate, smoky and woody. Mix of dark and red fruits, but they were not so evident yet. Palate had integrated and smooth tannins with very lively acidity.

卓龙是酒王柏图斯庄园所拥有的,品质有一定的保障,好年份还可以比拼柏图斯的品质(比如98年)。

非常雄性和性感的香味,带着一些巧克力,烟熏和橡木桶。红果和黑果混在一起虽然还不是很明显,需要再陈年10年。优雅的单宁和平衡的酸度给这款酒非常高的评价。值得拥有。年。
