關於「波爾多左右岸經典大聯盟」(Le Cerle de Vins de Bordeaux)

 「波爾多左右岸經典大聯盟」(Le Cercle de Grands Vins de Bordeaux)是由兩個波爾多酒農組織──「右岸聯盟」(Cercle Rive Droite)及「左岸聯盟」(Cercle Rive Gauche)所合組而成的。

「右岸聯盟」早在2002年7月由Alain Raynaud先生創立,現時一共凝聚了吉隆特河右岸的143家酒莊,全皆分享同一理念,就是十分注重其酒品的品質及個性,而且非常尊重傳統的經營之道,從釀造到酒品的市場推廣亦如是。成員所屬的右岸產區包括:波爾多、優級波爾多(Bordeaux Supérieur)、兩海之間區(Entre-Deux-Mers)、盧比亞(Loupiac)、聖富波爾多(Sainte-Foy Bordeaux)、波爾多丘(Côtes de Bordeaux)、布拉伊(Blaye)、布拉尹波爾多丘(Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux)、布格丘(Côtes de Bourg)、卡斯迪安波爾多丘(Castillon - Côtes de Bordeaux)、弗朗波爾多丘(Francs Côtes de Bordeaux)、龐馬可(Pomerol)、納蘭龐馬可(Lalande de Pomerol)、芳薩(Fronsac)、卡隆芳薩(Canon Fronsac)、聖達美利安列級酒莊(Saint-Emilion Grand Cru)、蒙坦尼聖達美利安(Montagne Saint-Emilion)、盧薩聖達美利安(Lussac Saint-Emilion)及寶斯嘉聖達美利安(Puisseguin Saint-Emilion)。

 

在2013年3月,Alain Raynaud先生把聯盟的概念帶到左岸,成立了姊妹組織「左岸聯盟」,亦同樣要求參加的酒莊對釀酒抱有熱誠,並致力追求品質,也就是跟「右岸聯盟」具有相同的目標,Alain Raynaud先生認為:「這新的組織可迎合左岸酒莊的需要──為左岸比較相宜的優質酒品作市場推廣。」「左岸聯盟」的會長是Francis Boutemy先生。

PERLE DI PIERA – Inherent Lustre

PERLE DI PIERA – Inherent Lustre

Wine

“Pearl” sparkling wine from Piera Martellozzo is now in town!

The four colorful frosted bottles are not only beautiful but the wine is also excellent!

Perle di Piera is like an explosion of bubbles with different colour representing a different mood and smile.

Perle di Piera includes:

Blue Pearl - Prosecco - A Cheerful Smile

  • Pale straw colour with sweet pear and apple aromas, there is a toasty backbone to this wine. Suitable as an aperitif or served with fish dishes.

Pink Pearl - Rose - A Sexy Smile

  • Exuding a cherry and pink glow, there are roses, raspberries, cherries, and wild violets on the nose. A soft and nice trace of acidity enables it to match with sushi or sashimi, although raw shrimp will work too.

Yellow Pearl - Ribolla Gialla - A Tender Smile

  • Straw yellow with a grassy tinge of green, there is a concentrated nose of apples, fresh herbs, and flowers. Fresh and citrusy, this is suitable to be served with seafood, especially sashimi.

Silver Pearl - Pinot Grigio - A Piercing Smile

  • Straw yellow with a tight and elegant nose of orange blossoms, toast, and ripe fruits, the wine is true to its assigned colour; sharp and crisp, the wine is suitable as an aperitif or an accompaniment to fish, crepes, and a hearty smile.
