美国总统与葡萄酒的秘密,2012年02月25日

  在美国历任总统中,有把葡萄酒打入冷宫的小布什总统;有国宴上,非爱酒不喝的尼克松,以及懂酒、爱酒,更试图亲手酿酒的杰斐逊

总统们和酒有什么秘密?……

奥巴马总统出访国外时,会喝葡萄酒  

今日的白宫与葡萄酒

  小布什离任后,留给奥巴马,白宫内一座只剩下500-600支葡萄酒的酒窖。
小布什是不喝葡萄酒的人,葡萄酒在其任内,几乎被打入“冷宫”。曾有趣事说道:法国总统萨科齐访问美国时,白宫待之以国宴,萨科齐和小布什一样,都是不喝葡萄酒的人,一位客座厨师向他的同僚表示:“替这两位不喝葡萄酒的总统准备晚餐,简直是浪费时间。”

  奥巴马对葡萄酒,没有杰佛逊的热忱和用心,他已经在努力修正前政府留下来的葡萄酒问题。
奥巴马总统出访国外时,会喝葡萄酒,其中,以去年初奥巴马携夫人米歇尔访问智利时,智利总统为他们挑选了两款 Vina Chocalan酒庄的Carmènere Reserva,和Gran Reserva Blend的卓越好酒。

尼克松是爱酒之人  

美国总统和葡萄酒的秘密

  尼克松是爱酒之人,他最爱Chateau margaux(玛歌酒庄),每次白宫举行正式宴会,宾客们喝的,是美国葡萄酒,尼克松命令人们为他送上Chateau margaux,要用餐巾遮盖酒标。
较早的时候,美国总统可以随意选择他们钟爱的葡萄酒宴请宾客的;
甘迺迪上任后,开始有外宾喜欢喝美国葡萄酒,往后,总统便要求所有官方宴会,只能使用美国葡萄酒。

  自此之后,这个不成文规定,就流传下来。据透露,尼克松喝的酒,包括Haut-Brion、 Latour、Margaux、Lafite、Mouton、Cheval Blanc、Ausone、Petrus在内的波尔多八大名庄酒。据说,他在总统任期的最后一天晚上,品尝了一瓶1953年的Margaux。

杰斐逊-最懂葡萄酒的伟大总统

  1784-1789年担任美国驻法国大使的杰斐逊深深爱上葡萄酒,花了相当多的时间“微服出巡”各大产区。他算是将波尔多葡萄酒分级的第一人,Chteau Haut-Brion应当是他的最爱,他曾经写道:“在我有机会品尝到的法国葡萄酒中,Haut-Brio是第一等的,似乎只有这款葡萄酒,才能打动美国人的味蕾。”

  回国接任美国国务卿一职的他,感叹无法在美国觅得在欧洲品尝过的美酒,促使他开始收藏产自法国、义大利等好年份顶级酒。退休后,搬至维吉尼亚州蒙蒂塞洛的杰斐逊,曾试图亲手酿制葡萄酒,可惜的是,未能如愿炮制出那些曾经打动他的欧洲好酒。
