Robb Report, tạp chí hàng đầu thế giới chuyên về những dòng sản phẩm và trải nghiệm xa xỉ, đã công bố danh sách 17 dòng rượu xuất sắc nhất ở các hạng mục khác nhau. Red Apron xin được vinh dự giới thiệu tới Quý khách 7 tuyệt tác rượu vang của chúng tôi đã có mặt trong giải thưởng lần này.

 

1. Rosé Champagne: Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rosé

Made only in exceptional years, vintage Champagne is a rarity, and rosé versions are even scarcer. Produced exclusively with grapes from Grand Cru sites, this ballet slipper–colored sparkler is composed of 70 percent Pinot Noir and 30 percent Chardonnay. The yield was very small but exceptional, a result attributable to not only the harvest but also the more than 12 years the Champagne spent aging in chalk cellars dating to Gallo-Roman times before being exposed to light.

 

2. Aromatic Wine: Trimbach Clos Ste Hune Rosacker Grand Cru Riesling (Alsace, France)

From a historic enclosed vineyard (or clos) situated within the larger Rosacker Grand Cru vineyard—one of Alsace’s most esteemed sites—this bone-dry Riesling, made by members of the 12th and 13th generations of the Trimbach family, is a testament to consistency. Clos Ste Hune’s average vine age is more than 50 years, and the same worker has personally pruned the vineyard for more than 20 of those.

Organic agriculture practices have been in use here for 15 years, and as always, this batch was made only in stainless steel before being allowed to rest in bottle for five years. 

 

3. Sweet Wine: Château d’Yquem (Sauternes, France)

With roots dating back to the 18th century, Château d'Yquem has remained under the ownership of the Lur-Saluces family for well over a century. Renowned for crafting some of the world's most exquisite sweet wines, its flagship offering, the Château d'Yquem Sauternes, is revered as one of the pinnacle wines globally. Employing a meticulous process, the winery selects only the finest grapes affected by noble rot, a beneficial fungus that intensifies the flavors and sugars within the grapes. This results in a low yield but an exceptional concentration of flavors - a factor that contributes to why Château d'Yquem wines are relatively rare and highly sought after by wine enthusiasts and collectors.

 

4. Bordeaux and Wine of the Year: Château Petrus Pomerol (Bordeaux, France)

The image on its label, of Saint Peter holding the key to the gates of heaven, is the perfect metaphor for this ethereal Bordeaux, considered by many to be the highest expression of Merlot in the world. Although 2017 was a difficult year throughout the region due to calamitous April frosts, the position of Château Petrus’s 28.5-acre vineyard at the topmost point of the Pomerol plateau protected it from the adverse effects of the cold weather found farther down the slope and across the Dordogne. Now controlled by the Moueix family, Petrus has benefitted from the stability of having just two winemakers since 1964: Jean-Claude Berrouet and his son, Olivier, who took over in 2008.

 

5. Red Burgundy: Domaine des Perdrix Echézeaux Grand Cru

The Cistercian monks were right on the money when they made the bold decision, during the Middle Ages, to plant grapevines in this part of the Côte de Nuits, and wines from Echézeaux have upheld their lofty provenance in the centuries since. Grapes for this stunning Pinot Noir are sourced by sibling proprietors Amaury and Aurore Devillard from two iconic Burgundy vineyards: Echézeaux du Dessus, planted in 1922, and Quartiers de Nuits, planted in 1945.

With only 4,000 bottles produced, this wine was aged for 18 months in traditional Burgundian oak barrels sourced from the forests of Bourgogne, Allier, and Vosges.

 

6. Spanish Wine: Vega Sicilia Unico (Ribera del Duero)

Vega Sicilia became a part of the Álvarez family's life in 1982. With a constant and steady growth, Vega Sicila is the most historical and prestigious winery from Spain today. This winery is known for its rich, complex reds made primarily from the grape Tinto Fino (Tempranillo). Unico is one of the exquisite masterpieces of wine that is truly worth experiencing from this winery.

 

7. Chilean Wine: Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon Puente Alto (Maipo Valley)

Intended to showcase the potential of the Don Melchor Vineyard, which sits at more than 2,100 feet above sea level on the north bank of the Maipo River, this sumptuous red is made with grapes grown on vines propagated from Cabernet Sauvignon cuttings brought to Chile from Bordeaux in the 1880s. Blended with small amounts of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot from the same site, it was aged in barrel for 15 months.
