Deilig magnum for de Bordeauxglade

Guigal og presisjon


 

Guigal har laget noen av Rhnedalens beste viner i tir, men for meg virker det som presisjonen i vinene stadig nr nye hyder. Samt at man ikke har falt for fristelsen til lage overmodne, plumpe, stladne og ubalanserte viner. Guigal har hele veien klart lage balanserte, komplekse og raffinerte viner, som lagrer fremragende. Selv de hvite synes f mer friskhet. Om syren faktisk er hyere vet jeg ikke, men vinene er mer presise, mineralitet og frukt gr som hnd i hanske. Det er rundt et r siden toppvinene La Mouline, La Landonne og La Turque ble smakt for frste gang, med en stor wow faktor, og vinene har lagt p seg enda en dimensjon i raffinement siden. Denne rgangen er n p vei ut av hyllene, en ny p vei inn, skulle det vre igjen noen f flasker, kjp, selv om det koster. Dette er sjeldent store viner. Lag p lag med aromaer, fantastisk lengde, utrolig balanse. Gigondas i andre enden av prisskalaen er ogs den mest presise og delikate jeg har smakt herfra, med en elegant og kjlig fruktkjerne. Philippe Guigal ser ikke ut til st noe som helst bak sin far som beslutningstager for de riktige beslutningene, selv om far fortsatt er med. Vinene herfra er s bra at man bare kan glede seg over nvrende og fremtidige rganger, og ergre seg over forhenvrende man ikke kjpte.

Ukens vin(er): Friskt til skalldyr



 

Denne ukens tips er store- og lillebror fra Clos Flroridene, to friske og livlige hvitviner som passer utmerket til sesongens sjmat. Spesielt sjkreps og kamskjell, men nr sagt all hvit fisk er glimrende til disse to. Skrei med smr og bacon, rdspette med en kremet saus p kraft av fiskens hode og bein, hvit fisk med sandefjordsmr, hvit fisk med asparges. Her er det mange muligheter. Vinenes lett kremede tekstur og noe rykaktige mineralitet sammen med en litt fyldigere sitrus og fruktig tone gjr dem svrt versatile.Begge finner du i BU.

Lyst til eie Bordeauxhistorie?


 

Chteau Magdelaine er gtt over i historien, den siste rgangen er n tilgjengelig p polet.

Julegaven med en litt strre historie enn vanlig er n tilgjengelig p Vinmonopolets bestillingsutvalg. Dette er siste rgang som er laget av Chteau Magdelaine. Slottet var klassifisert som en Premier Grand Cru Class B i Saint-Emilion, med andre ord, blant de aller beste i regionen, rett under frstevekstene. Slottet ble kjpt av Moueixfamilien som eier en rekke prominente eiendommer i nrheten, spesielt i Pomerol med Petrus, Trotanoy, La Fleur-Petrus og Latour a Pomerol i spissen. Familien tok ogs over Chteau Belair og valgte sl sammen denne og Magdelaine, til et nytt flaggskip for Saint-Emilion, Chteau Belair-Monange. Vinmarkene ligger delvis oppe p Saint-Emilion platet og delvis i skrningene nedenfor og var p rundt 11 hektar fr sammenslingen. Man brukte rundt frti prosent nye fat og det var 90 prosent merlot og 10 prosent cabernet franc i vinmarkene. Enkelte parseller har vinstokker som er over 90 r gamle ellers er snittet p oppunder frti r. Rundt 30.000 flasker ble laget rlig. 2011 er siste rgang og med det er en liten del av Bordeaux? historie over med denne flasken.
