Appellation Chablis 1er Cru Controlée

All Chablis is made 100% from the Chardonnay grape. It is believed Chablis is one of the "purest" expression of the varietal character of Chardonnay due to the simple style of winemaking favored in this region.

The top two are the Crus of Chablis and include the 7 Grand Cru vineyards followed by the lower Premier Crus (Appellation Chablis 1er Cru Controlée). Below these tiers are the lower designations of basic Chablis AOC and Petit Chablis.

Chablis Premier Cru wines are stylish, minerally wines which typically are less intense than the Grand Crus but finer and longer-lasting than basic Chablis. They are highly underrated with the better examples outclassing many a good village white Burgundy.

Chablis is brisk and fruity, very dry and with a refreshing acidity. In the nose, there are flavors of green apple and lemon. In the mouth Chablis delivers aromas of vanilla, lemon and linden. When older, Chablis has a golden color and is more spicy.

香港的五裂紅葉

香港的紅葉大多是非楓葉類的 「楓香」 樹. 小心觀察, 便會發現本港的紅葉多為 「三裂掌狀」. 它與日本、加拿大或韓國所見的一塊紅葉分為 「五裂」 、 「七裂」 大不同.

Quality Issue on Nikon D4 Rubber Sub-Selector

After 6 months in service, I realize Nikon D4 isn't truly built on the rock solid DNA of the D3 (and D3s).

The newly non-ergonomic design of the sub-selectors (joysticks type) are very disappointing.

Hope Nikon could improve its product quality in future.

GOLD

Gold is a precious metal that has been valued by people since ancient times.

Gold is a very soft metal when it is pure (24 Kt. is pure gold). It is usually alloyed (mixed with other metals, often silver and copper) to make it harder, but less expensive.

The scientific abbreviation of gold is Au. The purity of gold jewelry is measured in karats. Some countries hallmark gold with a three-digit number that indicates the parts per thousand of gold. In this system, "750" means 750/1000 gold (equal to 18K); "500" means 500/1000 gold (equal to 12K).

Karat Percent Gold
24 Kt. 100% Gold
18 Kt. 75% Gold
14 Kt. 58.3% Gold
12 Kt. 50% Gold
10 Kt. 41.7%


24 karat gold is pure gold. 18 karat gold is 18/24 gold (about 75% gold - three quarters gold). 14 karat gold is 14/24 gold (about 58% gold - a little over half gold). 12 karat gold is exactly half gold. 10 karat gold is 10/24 gold (only about 43.5% gold - less than half gold).

Alloyed gold comes in different colors:
Colored Gold Alloy Metal(s) Added to the Gold
Yellow Gold 50% silver and 50% copper
White Gold Nickel, zinc, copper, tin and manganese
Pink (rose) Gold 90% copper and 10% silver
Green Gold High proportion of silver or cadmium
Blue Gold Some iron
Grey Gold 15-20% iron
