奥比昂1974新加坡

不好的年份

不要忽略了一个不好的年份,因为侯伯王真的是不一般,除了拉图能够这样稳重的称得起这个重担外,接下来就是侯伯王莫属。鼻香就是诚信的品味;一点烟熏味,泥土味和优雅的陈年味。内容也在预期之内的味道,绝对优雅,而且很友善, 这个74年的波尔多表现真的超出了我的想象力!

Haut-Brion Premier Grand Cru Classé 1974

POOR VINTAGE 不好的年份

Just don’t write off Haut Brion yet, as it was probably as reliable as Latour, if not better! Trustworthy nose of smoke, earth and elegant age dominated the smell. Palate was expectedly reliable, with elegance and friendly style. This 74 was really beyond my expectations!

Château Henri Bonnaud Palette Rouge 2015

INTERESTING BLEND 精彩的杂种

This Henri Bonnaud Palette wasn’t the rosé version, but rather the red wine with an interesting and promising blend. It consisted of 1/3 each of Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Old Carignan, I felt the blend was very interesting as it produced very tannic content, which implied that it can age quite well, while the magic of roundness and softness also kicked in, almost like Merlot but in a unique way. All in, I can only speculate such blend but I do think it has a lot of future potential!

Pichon Lalande Pauillac 1959

RELIABLE LADY 可以信赖的女爵

You can trust this Lalande to perform for great vintages like 1959, a 59 year old wine and still very charming! Nose of aged mushrooms, musty. Body was full of life, a bit green but tolerable, still acidic and very backward and classic. This can still go on for at least 3-4 decades!

你可以相信女爵尤其是很好的年份比如1959年,一瓶59年的酒还是非常吸引人而且很有魅力! 鼻子闻起来都是陈年的蘑菇味,也有霉气但是不严重。内容非常有魅力而且充满了活力,虽然也有点青椒味但是可以容忍,酸度有点高,非常传统和经典的酿酒技术。这瓶酒还可以陈年30到40年也不成问题!

Louis Roederer Vintage Brut Champagne 2009

  Bok's Rating:

NOTHING TO SEE HERE 这里没有东西看

Despite a great champagne vintage, just bear in mind that this is a mass market champagne, you really cannot expect much even though it was a vintage champagne. Very muted nose with a bit of lemon. Body was simply creamy, loads of mousse, lacked flavor perhaps if it’s still young. But frankly, don’t bother.

虽然来自一个很棒的年份,但是这个路易王妃香槟还是大众化的香槟,你绝对不能期待太多。非常鼻塞的味道,只是带有淡淡的柠檬味。内容结构简单,带有太多的泡沫和奶油味,但是缺乏味道,可能是因为还年轻。但是我建议还有很多更好的香槟,不要浪费时间和青春在这款大众化的香槟。

Château Soutard Grand Cru Classé 2003

  Bok's Rating:

SHAME 羞耻

Not exactly a good vintage for Bordeaux as it was super hot thus killing all the Merlot grapes and only the tough Cabernet Sauvignon survived. Aromas of plum, black cherry and vanilla smoke with some green notes coming out later on. Palate had some intensely strong tannins, choking alcohol and fruits not so evident. What a shame.

虽然2003年是个不错的波尔多年份,但是因为天气非常热燥,所以只适合长相思的成长,而梅洛没办法生存,所以导致这个右岸酒经不起打击。香味带有梅,黒加伦和香草味,但是后来也出现青椒味。口感的单宁很浓厚,还有很呛的酒精味,而且果味一点都不明显。没有什么值得留念的差右岸年份。
