質量俱佳的波爾多白酒

質量俱佳的波爾多白酒

Wine

傳統而言,Graves區和Pessac-Léognan為波爾多最富盛名的白酒產區,除了出色的土壤之外,附近的大片森林也為該區的濕度控制和微氣候帶來關鍵作用。事實上,每當遇到氣候較涼,紅酒表現一般的年份,白酒往往會有驚喜(譬如2013年份)。而該區的頂級白酒,有時甚至會發生價格比同一釀造者的同級紅酒更為昂貴的現象,就像同屬盧森堡王子名下,位於該區的一級莊Château Haut Brion和Château La Mission Haut Brion,剛剛公佈的2016期酒價格,白酒便比紅酒貴上40%。

而傳統以貴腐酒而盛名的Saurternes和Barsac區,一直面臨著除了一眾名莊以外,貴腐酒銷售量不高的問題,而部份釀造者也認為白葡萄酒能很好的展現自己田的風土,進而釀造出來自該區田地的白葡萄酒。不少佳作帶有些微貴腐香氣,富礦物味道,確實得益於該區獨特的風土,雖然區內對幹白葡萄酒的日漸增加意見不一,有部份釀造者擔憂該風潮會影響該區長年經營的貴腐酒形象,而對飲者而言,有更多高質又有趣的選擇,絕對不是一件壞事。

當絕大多數一直令人追捧的布爾岡頂級白葡萄酒因應連年失收,一瓶Grand Cru動輒破千的現在,波爾多不少頂級釀造者出品的白葡萄酒相對對銀包而言壓力輕鬆,也令部份飲者轉而對波爾多的白葡萄酒世界進行探索。炎炎夏日,下次各位飲家選酒時,不妨考慮。

Bordeaux 2014 harvests – Chateau Phelan Segur

Bordeaux 2014 harvests – Chateau Phelan Segur

Wine

By Brinda Bourhis

A few days ago I was at Château Phelan Segur, St Estèphe and the harvests were in full swing.

Around 150 harvesters have been taken on to pick the grapes on this 68 hectare property, in the heart of Saint Estèphe and where the quest for quality has been a priority for Veronique Dausse, the estate’s Managing Director.

The owners are the Gardinier Family Group, who also own the outstanding restaurants Taillevent in Paris – 2 Michelin stars- and the Relais & Châteaux Les Crayères in Reims – 2 Michelin stars.

Following the example of perfectionism developed by this family in the fields of hotels and restaurants, nothing is left to chance in the running of Château Phélan Ségur.

During my visit, the optical sorting machine was in action, selecting with great precision only perfect berries. “We brought in the optical sorter for the 2011 vintage, and for a couple of years used it as a trial, today we have decided to purchase the machine as we are totally satisfied by the results” commented Veronique Dausse.

For Luc Peyronnet, the Vineyard Manager, his first vintage at Phelan Segur was 1993. Since that date, major improvements have been made in the vineyard management including a mapping of the vines through the technique called Greenseeker. By a GPS, it calculates the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI). It gives a measurement of the physiological activity of the plants. The map obtained from these measurements illustrates the development of the vineyard in real time and is a precious tool in aiding decision making: it allows a reliable estimate of the plants’ nutritional requirements; to control the development of their vigour all through the year.

Speaking on this year’s vintage, Luc Peyronnet said that the main characteristics will be : a powerful, classic Bordeaux with good tannic structure and a wine with good ageing potential. “But it is too soon to really have an idea of what the final wine will turn out to become, we are still at the early stages, there are still the fermentations and maturing processes to go through…only time will tell”.

The harvests at Château Phelan Segur should finish by October 15th.

Bordeaux 2014 : First impressions by a wine expert

Wine

Text: Brinda Bourhis

The harvests not only concern the wine producers and their pickers. The role of the external consultant who has been following the evolution of the vine cycle all the way until the end of the winemaking process is an important one and his/her views give us a better understanding of the vintage.

Patrice Hateau runs a company called Synergie Vin based in Bordeaux and offers expert advice to wine estates for their technical needs in the vines and cellars. He also specializes in audits and management consulting during transactions of châteaux. Previously, he worked several years for Vignobles Bernard Magrez, and was the winemaker behind the much acclaimed 100 points by Robert Parker for Château Pape Clément Red 2010 and White 2009!

Patrice shares his first impressions on the 2014 vintage in Bordeaux where grapes from the Right Bank and parts of the Left Bank have now made their way into the vat room.

“2014 can be described in many ways:

A vintage that required patience

A vintage where basic and systematic viticultural practices was not possible

A vintage with a ‘never-ending’ cycle

A vintage when it was only in September that hydric stress started to set in

A vintage that will most probably be great for the Cabernet Sauvignon

A vintage that should be a good one for Bordeaux especially for the producers who applied serious vineyard management throughout the year

A vintage that brought some disease due to the unstable summer and very localized storms on the right bank

Thanks to the late summer that has settled in the region since early September the grapes have ripened well and the volumes will be higher this year.

The Merlot ripened slowly and the high acidity during veraison has now reached acceptable levels and there is a nice aromatic potential.

For the Cabernet Franc, although they should be good, the leaves and branches dried out due to the warm weather in September.

As for the Cabernets Sauvignon, they show smooth tannic structure with excellent potential.

My first impression is that we should have some nice wines, with freshness and complex aromas, concentration with better structure on the Left Bank than the Right Bank.”
