Clos de Trias Vieilles Vignes 2007

FRR00525A

酒莊最重要的天賦條件是葡萄樹的年紀,平均都有40年,其中有幾批更是65+年,它們主要是Grenache但也有一點Syrah。

在2007年,這幾批葡萄被分開了,人手採摘(和莊內其他主要葡萄一樣)的6批幾乎全是Grenache於兩個小缸內發酵,第一缸的25%是保留了梗,包括 L’Aube和Champ Paga。保留枝梗是古老技術,如果運用得準確,會為酒帶來很好的複雜度和結構。這批葡萄和皮一起發酵42天。

另一缸會被100%除梗,而這批發酵會包括非常小量來自Les Grand Terres的老Syrah,而Grenache則來自Les Grand Terres和Le Jas。連皮浸漬時間總計47天。

大部分陳年於普通大缸內,30%的酒會於600L和700L的小法國木桶陳年8個月。為甚麼是8個月?因為那些都是新木桶,即使慢速氧化需用木桶(因為木桶有小氣孔所以葡萄酒可以呼吸),但釀酒師不喜歡有力量的味道,尤其來自新木桶的,所以8個月時間已給予慢速氧化足夠時間,以作提升葡萄酒的質感,而只有非常小量來自木桶的辛辣感覺。8個月後,主要批次的酒再於大缸內陳年,然後於2010年6月裝瓶。

新鮮而是壓搾了的覆盆子,加上帶礦物味的黑加侖子和藍莓香氣。有活力和深奧的,且有發展潛力的煙燻。低酸度、低單寧,豐富,似砵酒的黑櫻桃,帶精煉的覆盆子味道。帶礦物味而平衡的酸度。令人驚歎的深度,多層次而長久的木香和香料收結。

 


One of the key “gifts” of our domaine is the age of the vines. On average, they are 40+ years old. In addition, a few parcels that are 65+ years old were also used. These are mostly old-vine Grenache but a bit of Syrah too.
In 2007, these parcels were set apart: hand-harvested (like all the grapes in the same winery) 6 parcels of nearly just Grenache was fermented in two smaller tanks. With the first tank, 25% stems are retained. The parcels included L’Aube and Champ Paga. Retaining stems is an ancient technique, when executed precisely, adds tremendous complexity and a structure. This fermentation was left “on skins” for 42 days.
The second tank, 100% destemmed and this fermentation included the tiny bit of old-vine Syrah from Les Grand Terres and Grenache also from Les Grand Terres and Le Jas. The total maceration (time on skins) was 47 days.
The élevage, or ageing, was mostly in “normal” tanks. 30% of the wine was aged in 600 & 700 litre French oak barrels for about 8 months. Why 8 months? These were new barrels and though slow “oxidation” of the wine aged in barrels (wood is porous and therefore “breathes”) the wine maker did not like the powerful flavours imparted especially by new oak barrels. So 8 months allowed for the benefits of the slow oxidation (benefits like expanding the “texture” of the wine) but just a tiny bit of spicy notes from the barrels. After the 8 months, the master blend further aged the wine in tank until bottling in June, 2010.

Tasting Notes:
A beguiling nose of pure, crushed raspberry and minerals with hints of blackcurrant and blueberry. Succulent and deep with a developing smokiness. Low acidity, low tannins. Rich, port-like black cherry along with pithy raspberry fruit. Lightly mineral with a wonderful balancing acidity. Stunning depth, multi-layered with a long wood spiced finish.
