Domaine Du 1er Juin is in Singapore

2019年6月29日,陸壹酒莊首次離開它的祖國,來到新加坡,舉辦了它的首場海外酒莊晚宴。

新加坡成為了陸壹酒莊的首個進口國。

為慶祝這一歷史性的時刻,2019年6月29日,一場精致的寧夏葡萄酒晚宴如期舉行。這是陸壹酒莊首次在中國之外的國家舉辦這樣的酒莊晚宴。

陸壹酒莊莊主,盧夢溪女士,真誠、生動的陳詞給在場的每一位來賓留下深刻印像。

陸壹酒莊莊主,盧夢溪女士,為這場慶祝晚宴,專程從上海飛到了新加坡。這也是她第一次訪問新加披。

她不僅會說流利的英語,也能用法語交流(她在法國第戎勃艮第商學院取得國際葡萄酒與烈酒管理學的碩士學位),盧女士以她真誠、生動的講述,吸引了在場每一位來賓的聆聽。

陸壹酒莊這個名字的出處,正是她兒子的生日,Domaine du 1er Juin的法語直譯,即6月1日酒莊。她的先生,梅寧博,是一位知名葡萄酒作家,更是一位勃艮第葡萄酒專家,他現在正在撰寫一本專門介紹法國勃艮第產區的書。梅先生也是The Chinese Circle的成員。The Chinese Circle由一些葡萄酒作家、記者朋友組成,他們自2018年開始,定期參與波爾多En Primeurs期酒,和其他一些波爾多主題品鑒活動。

品鑒筆記

Domaine du 1er Juin Riesling 2017
陸壹酒莊2017雷司令干白

The vines were first planted in 2010. Because of the poor soil, grapes only appeared in 2015. Domaine du 1er Juin did not pick them. The following year – 2016 – the grapes were harvested and fermented. The domaine did not consider the wine to be up to the standard they wanted and the bottles were not offered for sale. This 2017 is, therefore, the first commercial vintage. Minerally, citrus zesty, Granny Smith apples, with a hint of honey on the middle palate. Good intensity and persistence of fruit. Full of vitality, energy and freshness.

Domaine du 1er Juin Pinot Noir 2016

The structure is very evident when you taste this 3-year old. Still quite taut, this is the most intense Chinese pinot I have come across. Compact blue fruit – with a hint of raspberries – competes with firm, rich tannins particularly from the stems. Lots of freshness. Too young to approach at the moment. A good window of opportunity would be between 2021 and 2023. And beyond.

Domaine du 1er Juin Merlot 2015
陸壹酒莊2015梅洛乾紅

Smoky blueberry fruit that is full of lift. The tannins are ripe and with richness.  Medium-plus-ish bodied. The vines were planted in 2007 and 2008. Domaine du 1er Juin waited eight years before making this their first vintage. Enjoyable now but will continue to evolve and improve to 2030.

As the domaine name suggests Domaine du 1er Juin only produces wines from grapes that it grows. Much sought-after, their small production is hard to come by but are found in some Ritz-Carlton, Hyatt, and Shangri-La properties in China. Like the Merlot, the vines were planted in 2007 and 2008 and this, too, is the first vintage. Very Left Bank Médoc-like. Ripe capsicum/blueberry fruit with rich tannins. The balance between fruit, structure and freshness is expertly struck. Decant 30 to 45 minutes. Now to 2035. The allocation to Singapore was 6 bottles. All were snapped up at the dinner and had to be allocated a bottle each to six participants.
