Vintage

卡莫&喬森成立於1995年,是一間勃艮第式的釀造型酒商,以釀造及銷售法國南部的朗格多克-魯西榮法定產區葡萄酒產品為主。我們的合作夥伴是分佈在朗格 多克-魯西榮產區的各家族式酒莊。酒莊創始人之一的勞倫•卡莫憑藉多年擔任釀酒顧問的經驗,逐步與產區內多個具有代表性的酒農及酒莊建立了長期的互信關係。
兩位公司創始人,勞倫•卡莫與傑洛•喬森對朗格多克-魯西榮產區發展潛力深信不疑。兩人共同的志願推動他們前行,一同釀製,混合與陳釀酒莊的全部葡萄酒款。這也是要向世界證明,在地中海特有的風土人文條件下,可以栽種並釀造出非常優質的葡萄酒;同時他們也渴望讓更多的人瞭解並認同朗格多克-魯西榮產區葡萄酒不為人知的品質與地位。除了堅持在這片風土上釀製出高品質的葡萄酒外,我們還期望憑藉自己對法國南部產區風土人文的理解,並通過自己多年的釀造經驗,陳釀出高品質的傳統風味葡萄酒。

此酒呈亮淺綠色。酒香豐富,以白桃和果乾香為主導,並伴有淺淺的薄荷清香。 入口後,口感圓潤,結構感強,平衡有致。這才徹底打消了我們對於這款晚熟年份的擔憂。回味時的白色花香、芒果和鮮杏子成為了這款霞多麗的經典香型。結尾怡人的香辛以及礦物感夾雜著淡淡的橡木味,讓人心曠神怡。

 

Founded in 1995, Calmel & Joseph is a maison de négoce specializing in Languedoc-Roussillon wines from private wineries from across the region. Over the years, they have built close personal relationships with a large number of growers from all appellations. Convinced of the extraordinary potential of this region, oenologist, Laurent Calmel, and Jerome Joseph work together on the vinification, blending and ageing of wines with the common purpose of demonstrating the little known yet unique quality of these Mediterranean terroirs. As well as our desire to produce high quality wines consistent with their terroirs, we are committed to making wines which reflect our convictions and experience.

Appellation:
IGP Pays d'Oc, Southern France

Country of Origin:
France

Grape Variety:
100% Chardonnay

Alcohol:
13.5%

Vinification:
The grapes are picked at night, in two passes. The first harvest is done at a relatively early stage in maturity, to keep freshness in the wine. Then 15 days later a second harvest is done, to get good concentration and varietal aromas. Grapes are destemmed and then macerated at 5°C for 4 hours. Fermentation is temperature-controlled 15°C (no malolactic fermentation).

Ageing:
Aged for three months in oak barrels (30% of the vintage).

Tasting Notes:

With its attractive pale green robe with excellent clarity, Villa Blanche Chardonnay 2013 has a very expressive nose of white peach and dried fruits, with a just a hint of menthol. Full and round in the mouth, it is well-balanced, confounding our concerns for this harvest that was later than the previous year. Floral notes combined with mango and apricot are characteristic of this wine, year-on-year. The finish is spicy, with a light touch of wood.
