Heavenly Cheese Gougeres and a 22 Year-Old Sweet Wine - by Jameson Fink in Foodista

Heavenly Cheese Gougeres and a 22 Year-Old Sweet Wine - by Jameson Fink in Foodista | Bordeaux wines for everyone | Scoop.it

...Thanks to Planet Bordeaux, I got the chance to visit that storied wine region in France with other members of the wine media, and taste a lot more than just red wine. And even among the red wines I tried, the majority were modest in price, populating the $10-15 range. A visit to Chateau Bonnet was fairly typical of showcasing the quality and tastiness of wines simply labeled (along with the name of the winery) Bordeaux or Bordeaux Supérieur....

Claret or Bordeaux? Branding for the British and How To Mess It Up | Bordeaux Undiscovered – via ‏@NicksWine

Claret or Bordeaux? Branding for the British and How To Mess It Up | Bordeaux Undiscovered – via  ‏@NicksWine | Bordeaux wines for everyone | Scoop.it

Being a fan of Bordeaux Clairet I intend to investigate this further but putting this to one side for a moment I want to look at the wisdom behind the CIVB’s decision to brand Claret. Claret is not the French name for Bordeaux wine and the French themselves do not generally use the term. It was coined by us Brits before the 17th century as an anglicised version of the French word ‘Clairet’ – which was more of a deep rosé coloured wine than the red we recognise today.

The grape haul of China Chinese buy up chateaux to lock in supply of prime Bordeaux via @newbordeaux

One Chinese owner in the hilly, green corner of the region's Entre Deux Mers appellation is Zhang Jinshan. If he set off at a brisk walk from his estate, within five minutes he would arrive at the front door of his nearest neighbour at Chateau de Grand Branet, which sits on the crest of the next hill, almost visible from the turrets of his 18th century property. There, he would be greeted not by a local French vigneron, but by fellow Chinese businessman Qu Naijie, owner of five chateaux in Bordeaux.

Everyday Bordeaux, white and red by Tom Cannavan @winepages

Everyday Bordeaux, white and red by Tom Cannavan @winepages | Bordeaux wines for everyone | Scoop.it
It's easy to overlook the huge choice of inexpensive Bordeaux that's readily available on the market when so much fuss is made about a few dozen grand 'Cru Classé' châteaux and the feverish demand and astronomical prices they create on world markets. But whilst the 'petit châteaux' and branded wines of Bordeaux may offer neither the complexity, ageability or investment potential of the great names of Pauillac, Margaux, St Julien and the rest, there can be some very good and seriously food-friendly drinking provided by wines costing less than £15 per bottle.

Bargain Bordeaux 99 Percenters Can Afford: John Mariani

Bargain Bordeaux 99 Percenters Can Afford: John Mariani | Bordeaux wines for everyone | Scoop.it

Owing to a summer sale at New York’s Sherry-Lehmann, I stocked up on Bordeaux from such unheralded appellations and have been drinking them with pleasure, sometimes with real surprise.

It hardly needs noting that none rises to the levels of complexity that one finds in first and second growths, but I would be hard put to discern many from an array of third, fourth and fifth growths. And the prices range from just $13 to $20.
