歌須當 有麝自然香

2014年帶團走訪隆尼河谷。供應商們一致推薦我必須拜訪歌須當酒莊。彼時聖約瑟夫村的酒並非主流,但歌須當卻是整個行程中最受團友們歡迎的酒莊。把喬驕和喬治灣尼都比下去。

歌須當一直是上陣不離父子兵,五代薪火相傳,守著十六傾差不多45度的斜坡,全手工製作,冬涼夏曖,端的是難為了當家。

葡萄酒迷人處在於它的生命一如人生;吃得苦中苦、方為人上人。地中海的密史脫拉風加上陡峭的斜坡,迫使葡萄死命的深深生根抓緊泥土,果子的皮也特別厚,為酒提供豐富的單寧和礦物;同時也迫使人只能人手打理莊稼,不能使用機器。環境越艱難的土壤,越是造就出好酒。

典型的隆尼北紅酒的風格,歌須當濃郁醇厚,礦物、花香和果香和諧並平衡,嚴謹的結構倍覺大氣。

2019年幽光潛發的當家雪儂被法國李昂的侍酒師及廚師恊會選為年度最佳釀酒師。實至名歸,真心為他們高興,同時也擔心會加價。

果不其然,比起2014,今年的價錢長了40%。隨著獲獎漸多,歌須當仍然有升值的空間。幸福的2014團友,留意你們賺了。

最後更值得一提的是他們家的白葡萄酒,醇厚而恢弘大度,那太妃糖的香氣在喉裏久久不散;比起孛艮地的繆索過之而無不及!很難得有多餘配額給亞洲。今年竟然有存貨!愛酒人趕快訂了!

Modest Wine Maker Glows

I led a wine tour in 2014 visiting prominent Rhone producers. All my suppliers recommended Domaine Coursodon. They emphasised it is a must go estate. In those days St. Joseph wine was not very well known. However, among my tour mates Coursodon was the most popular Domaine that out shone the famous Gigual and George Vernay.

Domaine Coursodon has always been a father and son business harnessing 16 hectares of vineyard of a very steep slope at nearly 45 degree. It is really tough manual works under the harsh environment of snowy winter and sizzling summer.

The beauty of wine is that it is like a human life; no pain no gain. It is the same to wine, the harsher the condition, the better the wine. The Mistral in the Mediterranean and the steep slopes make the vine deeply penetrate to the ground, and the skin of grape become thicker. Hence mineral and tannin level is higher. These conditions also make using of machine impossible. The harsher the environment, the better the grape. Their production of whites is tinnie winnie. Very seldom that they have allocations for Asia. We are so fortunate to have some this year. Make haste my dear wine buddies!

Like classic Northern Rhone, Domaine Coursodon is full bodied and concentrated. Minerals, bouquet and fruitiness constitute a very good balance, well structure and grand.

The very low key Jerome was voted as the Wine Maker of the Year in 2019 by the Society of Sommeliers and the Toques Lyonnaises. I was happy for him cordially cause he deserved it. At the same time, I was afraid that their price would go up. It happened indeed. Comparing 2014 price, it went up 40%. AS he acquires more trophies, there is still room to appreciate. My 2014 tour mates should be very happy now.

Last but not least, Coursodon white is exceptional, rich, concentrated, grand and majestic. The distinctive toffee and butter scotch lingers on and on in my throat. I promise you that it out performs big houses Meursault.
