於Costers del Segre的Pyrenees分區,Raul Bobet於海拔1,000米的Talarn村釀造驚為天人的葡萄酒。產品皆以梵文或以葡萄生長的地方命名。時至今日,大部分酒都於12世紀的石窖中發酵, 當大家看見它時便會相信,過程並不是最重要,最重要的是非常出色的結果,因為這是近來最令人振奮的西班牙酒。而Raul Bobet也是有份負責Ferrer Bobet酒莊的人,在那裡他與葡萄酒發燒友Sergi Ferrer-Salat合作。

產地:
西班牙

葡萄品種:
Riesling

釀造:
原生酵母,於 25 hL的小型不鏽鋼缸以低溫發酵。

陳年:
與酒渣在不鏽鋼缸陳年9個月

品酒筆記:

2017年:感覺很年輕,而味道極為平衡,清澈,純淨而又具透明度,和諧有緻。入口美味而當中極有力,有集中而清晣的味道。完全是傑作。


2013年
:帶有青檸、白花、底層有礦物的香氣,味道十分年輕簡樸但具穿透力的酸度令人想起Mosel內Ruwer Valley藍石板的複雜優雅,Raul Bobet說這年份為他一次重大突破,因他十分敬重和欣賞德國Riesling那酸與甜的平衡能經得起陳年考驗,如他能把Costers del Segre這片海拔過千米高的風土放進瓶內陳年,那會是多麼令人振奮的事! 

2013年的複雜性十分高Raul Bobet用了葡萄園稍微晚收的Riesling葡萄精準地平衡了甘甜度和新鮮酸度,美妙的酸度能把味覺和礦物感提升,給予清新、新鮮的感覺,而晚收的葡萄能令她陳年更久,Raul Bobet毫不猶豫地說:"不信可二,三十年後開瓶看看便知道他說的是對的!

2012年落杯已很芳香的Riesling,酸度礦物感充足,具穿透力和可拓展至電油香,具陳年潛力,被譽為西班牙最靚的Riesling,資深葡萄酒作家Jancis Robinson說可與Mosel區媲美。

 

Raul Bobet’s groundbreaking wines from the Pyrenees subzone of the Costers del Segre appellation, are produced in the village of Talarn at 1,000 meters altitude. The wines are named with Sanskrit words or after the places where grapes are grown. Nowadays most of the wines are fermented in the 12th century stone lagares from the property. It has to be seen to be believed. However, the process is not the most important thing, what is really important is that the results are superb. These are some of the most exciting new wines throughout Spain. And Bobet, the ex-Torres enquiring mind, is also responsible for the breathtaking Priorats from the Ferrer-Bobet winery, his joint venture with entrepreneur and wine nut Sergi Ferrer-Salat.

Tasting Notes:

2017 Vintage: It felt so young and tender that it felt almost a sin to drink something like that. It's very balanced, clean, pure, transparent and harmonious. The palate is delicate but has inner power and strength, with focused, clean and chiseled flavors. Brilliant.


2013 Vintage: Aromas of lime, white flowers and a subdued minerality. The palate feels very young with plenty of baby fat to be burned in bottle, but precise and fresh, with the acidity lifting the finish and leaving a clean, fresh sensation in the palate.

2012 Vintage: The 2012 Ekam is mainly Riesling with a small percentage of Albarino. The nose is muted, closed for business, with just hints of lime, white flowers and stones and a Zen-like palate with great balance, purity and transparency, with pungent acidity and penetrating flavors. This wine is so primary and needs so badly to develop in bottle that it is a shame to pull the cork now, but its balance and elegance make it difficult to resist. This is a great vintage for Ekam. Drink now-2022.
