2004 年薄酒萊新酒報告

  2004年的法國薄酒萊產區葡萄採收狀況,已經在10月24日的另一篇文章「2004年薄酒萊新酒概況」中大致說明過了,所以不再重複,以下只是將產區的官方報告紀錄在此:


 『The 2004 vintage : a winemaker’s vintage
  
The harvest, that started on the harvest bans date of 11th September, finished at the beginning of October and took place under continuos sunshine and summer-like temperatures.


The year 2004 is without a doubt ‘a winemaker’s year’. Meaning a year where hard work, vigilance and winemaker’s know-how gained over the seasons will result in really remarkable cuvées. During the harvest strict sorting at the vine and before vatting was generalised meaning that only the ripest, healthiest bunches were retained.


Already during the summer nearly 30% of estates carried out a green harvest on at least part of their plots. This is the removal of surplus bunches of grapes for better yield control. This is one of the objectives the Beaujolais winemaking area has set itself over the last few years and has become part of the plan of action that was presented at the Beaujolais Assizes in Lyon last July.


The wines are supple and very pleasant, characterised by a good balance between degree and acidity. The attack is good. The tannins are rounded. Besides its lovely sparkling ruby robe, Beaujolais Nouveau this year is fruity, redolent of fresh red fruit like strawberry, blackcurrant and raspberry, to which there is sometimes the addition of violet and peony fragrances. A lip-smacking, pleasure provoking wine.
 
 
  看出2004年官方報告的重點了嗎?簡單的說就是要慎選好的釀酒酒莊。今年因為薄酒萊產區葡萄大豐收,所以新酒好壞完全要看各酒莊的功夫。這是官方報告的標題就已經傳遞出來的訊息,後面的感性品酒形容詞事實上全看個人感受,每年也都差不多,看看就好。

  • 跨過新酒這道入門磚之後,也許你可以考慮開始嚐試一些正統的年份紅酒,會給你一些不同的體驗…..

  • 懶豬

    已經喝了四年的薄酒萊新酒,除了2003年感覺不錯外其餘的都不覺得怎麼樣,2004年的新酒更讓我感到落差更大。不過同年份的義大利新酒就好多了!
    我想今年不想買了(價格已經被炒得有些離譜),屆時到橡木桶新酒發表會嚐新一下就好!

  • 當然,薄酒萊本身也是一個葡萄酒產區,所以也有一些其他品種葡萄的紅、白酒生產。不過一來數量不多,二來新酒的名氣太大,也讓薄酒萊幾乎完全成了新酒的代名詞了,所以很多時候,大部份人常常會忽略了薄酒萊產區出的紅酒品質其實是不錯的….

  • 有試過真正的薄酒萊嗎?不是每年年底的新酒呦!如果以薄酒來新酒的印象來看待所有薄酒來的酒,那可就大錯特錯了。像做得好的Morgon和Moulin-à-Vent會很像品質不錯的Pinot Noir,酒質濃郁,可以參考:
