FRR00671A

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。

深紅色澤,酒香成熟,偏重黑色成熟水果的果香:草莓、桑葚和無花果的果香可見一斑。入口後,果香濃郁且口感圓潤。這款酒體的平衡性極佳,在強健與高雅之中遊刃有餘。這款酒並沒有人們印象中Syrah強健的體魄,相反單寧更加柔滑;結尾令 人心曠神怡;有甘草香,辛香和地中海灌木叢的氣息。

 

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:
Pays d'Oc IGP

Country of Origin:
France

Grape Variety:
100% Syrah

Alcohol:
13.5%

Terroir:
Volcanic, clay and limestone. The climate is typically Mediterranean, warm and sunny with low rainfall. Winters are mild, summers are hot and usual dry conditions allow the grapes to ripen fully. Vines are ploughed. We do not use weed killer. Pruning is short to regulate the vine's growth and its yields.

Vinification:

Grapes are 30% crushed and fully de-stemmed. Traditional vinification at 28°C. The vatting period lasts 3 weeks. Two different Syrah profiles are blended together: one is very fresh (20%) and the other is riper (80%).

Ageing:
10% of the wine is aged for three months in oak barrels of 2 vintages. The remaining 90% is raised in tanks on fine lees.

Tasting Notes:
Deep purple red colour. This vintage is fresher than the 2013 with aromas of red fruits, blackcurrant, blackberry and spices. The mouth is well balanced, round and fruity. Notes of truffles and gunflint. Tannins are soft with a generous finish of spices. Very nice balance on this vintage clearly elegant.
