三款 Chardonnay

Marraso 2007 Chardonnay, Columbia Crest 2006 Grand Estates Chardonnay, Louis Jadot 2007 Macon – Villages Chardonnay.

會挑這三款酒單純只是為了比較不同類型的 Chardonnay,第一款 Marraso 是新世界的酒,來自阿根廷,特色是 un-oaked,亦即主要不是在橡木桶中發酵、陳年,而都是在不銹鋼桶中完成。第二款 Columbia Crest 一樣為新世界的酒,是來自華盛頓州,特色為 oaked。第三款 Louis Jadot 為勃根地(Burgundy)區 Chardonnay,典型的舊世界口味。

To choose these three bottles is for comparing different types of Chardonnay. The first one is from Marraso, a winery from Argentina. This wine is an “un-oaked” Chardonnay, which means the fermentation and aging are not in oak barrels, but steel vats instead. The second is an “oaked” from Columbia Crest, a winery in WA, USA. The last is from Louis Jadot, a winery in Burgundy, French, an emblematic “old world” Chardonnay.

味道很乾淨沒有木桶味(廢話),也沒有礦石類的味道,很明顯的成熟果香 ,有橘子、檸檬、鳳梨,口味在這三款當中偏甜,但也是具有常見的酸味。

Clear aromas without oak flavor, and no mineral. Very ripe fruits, tangerines, lemons, pineapples. Among these three wines, this one is comparatively sweet, and still has common acidity.

Columbia Crest 2006 Grand Estates Chardonnay

[column width=”44%” padding=”6%”]

不需要搖晃杯子就可以聞到濃厚的橡木桶味道混著奶油香氣湧現。香氣有蘋果和鳳梨,另外有一些香料味道。喝起來一樣可以感受到木桶、奶油的味道,另外有一點點的肉桂味,但在口中的香氣維持的時間有點短。在三款酒當中是最不甜的。

Oak and cream flavor can be found at the top without swirling. Besides, there are apple, pineapple and some spices. Oak and cream are also found in palate, and a little bit cinnamon. However, not last very long in mouth. The most dry among these three.

清爽不過於濃郁的木桶味,些許的奶油香,搭配上礦泉水味道,再加上檸檬的香氣,光是聞味道就讓我很喜歡這一款酒。飲用的時候除了前述的味道之外,還多了微弱的哈密瓜香,在開頭的甜味過去之後,會有很清新的酸味。這三款酒當中最喜歡這一款。

Fresh oak, but not over dense. Light creamy with mineral water. In addition, lemon flavor. I like this one while just smelling. In the palate, besides of the prior aromas, there is a light cantaloupe flavor. After the sweet beginning of palate, it has a refreshing acidity. I love this one most among these three.
