第七期:“很好喝,圓潤、柔和,有種令人感傷的酸甜,我覺得它充滿了彷彿已經發黃的回憶一般的鄉愁。-神之水滴

Another strong effort from Puygueraud (the birthplace of the Thienpont family), the 2011 was fashioned from modest yields of 35 hectoliters per hectare, and the final blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Mal...

Poupille 一支因為一個瑞士盲品酒會與Petrus鬥到最後而聲名大噪,同樣是100% Merlot 釀造,就像小朋友齊打交挑戰世界級拳王,兩支酒價相差百倍,才引起這樣的騷動,Poupille 酒莊佔地33公頃,其中23公頃屬Castillon法定產區,這葡萄園早於1967年被Jean-Maie Carrille購入及後傳到同樣被譽為天才釀酒師的兒子Philippe Carrille, 他曾於Chateau Larcis-Ducasse工作2年,之後到世界各釀酒國擔任釀酒師,1989年回到波爾多接管家族莊園,天生反叛的他不受傳統...

This is a consolidation of the tasting and papers

written from 2006 to 2013. These write-ups had been with the orginal site Wine and Beyond, Yahoo, until the service stopped by Yahoo in September 2013.

 

For years I have been working with wines, either buying it, selling it to wine companies, lecturing and writing about it, and, not unimportantly, enjoying it with friends. If any of the articles on this site are worth reading it is due to my teachers, my mentors, my peers and friends, my students, and in particularly my editors who ignite in me a desire to communicate in wines.

 

Clinging to the trellis of wine, I started to get more and more involved with estates and winemakers, by supporting them with consultancy in communication and marketing. The more I spend my time outside Hong Kong, the more I sense a desire to be part of the international wine family.

 

Writing about wine represents a moment of reflection, curiosity, atitudes and a desire to analyse often hidden structures and history, in an effort to make the wealth of wine accessible to a targetted, and hopefully larger audience.

 

I am not sure if I can wine proivde more accessible to all through this blog. But I am sure to write in wine means being involved in wine and  to remain as impartial and objective as possible.
