“博若莱新酒”,与大多数法国的葡萄酒不同,无需经过多年的尘封等待,当年就可以享用,而且越快越好,最好在三个月之内喝掉。就像是饮茶,要的就是那个新鲜劲,否则就失掉了应有的口感,“新酒”的名称便由此而来。新鲜亮丽的酒体散发着紫罗兰与玫瑰的芬芳,那种清新的感觉就如同是夏日清晨漫步在加州的海滩上,感受着习习的凉风。 博若莱新酒如此招人喜爱,还要归功于Gamay(佳美)。佳美原产自法国的勃艮第,现主要在博若莱种植。说到佳美,还有一段神奇的故事:在1349年,一场可怕的黑死病侵袭了法国,许多壮劳力倒了下去,人心惶惶,很长一段时间勃艮第大片的葡萄园无人看管,几近荒芜。不过可喜的是,有一个叫Gamay的小村庄栽种葡萄顽强的存活下来,挽救了人们的希望。从此那里种植的葡萄就命名为Gamay(佳美),并在勃艮第大面积种植。不过瘟疫结束后,在人们的眼中,始终认为佳美难登大雅之堂,不如黑皮诺高贵。于是勃艮第的菲利普公爵颁布禁令,铲除佳美这一劣质品种,改种黑皮诺,只允许土地贫瘠的博若莱地区种植。正所谓三十年河东,三十年河西。昔日无人理睬的灰姑娘在六百多年后,摇身一变成为世界瞩目的新贵。在英国、美国、德国、日本等一百多个国家都可以看到它曼妙的身影,如今在中国也逐步博得饮用者的好感。 博若莱新酒清淡的口感,浓浓的果香,且酒精度数很低,尤其得到年轻人的追捧。虽说是一种酒,但更似融合了多种水果和花香的饮料。其清新芬芳的口感来源于独特的酿制方法——二氧化碳浸泡法。将整串的葡萄放入密封罐中,注满二氧化碳气体,使得葡萄皮上的天然酵母做小规模的酒精发酵,然后才将葡萄捣碎。由于一开始就注入的二氧化碳可以防止发酵过程中酒的氧化,从而保证产出酒的新鲜和果香。 虽说都是博若莱新酒,但也有个等级之分,根据葡萄园的位置,由下而上依次是: Beaujolais 博若莱 Beaujolais Villages 优等博若莱村庄 Beaujolais Crus 优等博若莱 大多数新酒来自博若莱和博若莱村,佳美从采摘到酿酒装瓶,不经过橡木桶,短短数周的时间便完成了质的转变,似乎更迎合当今快节奏的生活规律。大家在赞赏其昙花一现的惊艳时,更加感叹佳美经短时间酝酿后所呈现于众的独特魅力。...
