Muscat Trio Let’s date 3 at a time

All wine beginners find Muscat irresistible due to its charming floral note, especially note of roses. Nearly all wine country grows this varietal. For gracious and complex , you may have it from Rhone , Muscat de Baumes de Venise. For bright and lively, you may find it in Moscato D’Asti from Piedmont , Italy. And most of the time, they are made sweet.

 

I have recently encountered an amazing cold region Alsatian Muscat. It was like fully ripen fruits , nearly raisins on the nose with elegant white rose petals mingled with white tea and jasmine. I thought that it is a refreshing sweet wine, it happened to be a very dry white when I sipped it; permeated with subtle notes of Longnan and Lychee. It was so elegant and sophisticated, chewy with intriguing evolutions in the glass. It was so much full of surprise that I seldom come across an elaboration of Muscat this way.

 

Hey wine maniacs, why not a horizontal tasting?

 

 

麝香三重奏 - 添香何須紅袖

 

初學葡萄品鑑的朋友無不喜歡麝香那過路溪錢(引死人) 的花香,尤其是玫瑰香。全球都有種植這品種。雍容華貴的有法國隆尼河谷的維尼斯布夢丘,明媚活潑的有義大利皮埃蒙特的氣泡麝香,普遍認為麝香葡萄是甜酒。

 

最近邂逅了一見傾心的寒冷的法國阿爾薩斯麝香,挨近聞香時熟果如葡萄乾,清雅的白玫瑰底蘊纏綿著白茶和茉莉;當我以為是一瓶清新的甜酒時,原來卻是一瓶辛口乾性的佳釀,還有陣陣桂圓荔枝隱隱約約在滲透。優雅含蓄,耐人尋味,充滿驚喜!很少遇見麝香的這般演繹。

 

發燒友們,何不來個水平品鑑?

Rhone Creature 隆尼尤物

Xavier Muscat de Beaume de Venise 2014

HKD238
Robert Parker 89 

It gives up full-flavored, decadent notes of honeyed pineapples, apricot and white flowers to go with a pure, rich, unctuous, yet lively feel on the palate. It’s a shame these wines don’t get more play in the market today, as they’re incredibly unique and versatile on the table as well (with cheese, starter/appetizers or any number of fruit desserts).

猶如熟爛透的菠蘿、豐滿濃郁的杏子和白花香,口感卻清新活潑。能配襯各式各樣的美食,從開胃前菜到水果甜點奶酪都相宜。
