香贝丹 (Chambertin)  ,一个在夜丘区中拥有崇高地位的特级园。200年前有一句话语出自拿破崙.波拿巴 (拿破崙一世) 的口中 「通过一杯香贝丹。未来已没有任何事情会令人担忧了」。

 

“Nothing makes the future look so rosy as to contemplate it through a glass of Chambertin.”

 

而香贝丹这名字也一直从1400年前名流至今。

 

香贝丹就有如把所有在Gevery Chambertin 里的特级园混和在一起,他有着深不见底的感觉、果实的浓厚与复杂度,但同时间给于你一种舒服的结构感。法国史上的一位酒评家 Gaston Roupnel 曾为香贝丹写下如此评论 ,单独去感觉这一杯有如把所有勃良地的特点喝下去,他拥有如Corton般的力量与粗扩感 、Musigny的抚媚、Romanee的丝绒、Clos Vougeot的香气... 香贝丹是「酒中之王者」。

 

在这块地段中存在看两个特级园,分别是香贝丹和Chambertin Clos de Beze (在Clos de Beze 地段生产的葡萄酒是可用「Chambertin」酒标示人,但在Chambertin 生产的则不能贴上「Clos de Beze」酒标,在品质上他们是被视为一样的)。

晚宴中我们将会以不同酒庄与不同年份来探讨Chambertin 的真面貎,絕對是一个勃良地爱好者不能错过的一节课。与我们共享王者之酒吧!

Chambertin is the top grand cru vineyard of the Côte de Nuits village of Gevrey-Chambertin, and one of the greatest in Burgundy. Napolean Bonaparte was quoted as saying, some 200 years ago:


“Nothing makes the future look so rosy as to contemplate it through a glass of Chambertin.”

 

Chambertin has been continuously famous for one thousand four hundred years.

 

Chambertin seems to combine all of the strengths of the other Gevrey-Chambertin grands crus – it has a great depth of fruit and complexity, but also a refined structure. French historian and wine expert Gaston Roupnel described Chambertin like this:


“On its own it is all that is possible in great Burgundy. Tough and powerful like the greatest of Cortons, it has the delicacy of Musigny, the velvet of Romanée, the perfume of high Clos Vougeot… Chambertin, king of wines!”

 

There are two parts to the vineyard – Chambertin and Chambertin Clos de Bèze. (The Chambertin Clos de Bèze part can be labeled as Chambertin, but the Chambertin part cannot be labeled as Chambertin Clos de Bèze. In quality they are considered top equal rank).

 

This evening we shall explore a range of producers and vintages to uncover the true character and expressions of Chambertin, one of the most important Burgundies to understand.

 

Join us for the king of wines!
