Marché de Noël in Bordeaux | Jim Drohman

Marché de Noël in Bordeaux | Jim Drohman | Planet Bordeaux - The Heart & Soul of Bordeaux | Scoop.it

The Marché is located in the heart of Old Bordeaux, just off the Place de la Comédie, flanked on one side by the belle époque Grand Hotel de Bordeaux and on the other by the Opéra National de Bordeaux. Bordeaux’s shiny new Tram glides through the scene every few minutes, and there is even a double high carousel to mark the season. It is really an enchanting scene.

Wine Mizer: Chateau PEY LA TOUR 2010

Wine Mizer: Chateau PEY LA TOUR 2010 | Planet Bordeaux - The Heart & Soul of Bordeaux | Scoop.it

"Pey La Tour carries the “Bordeaux AOC” designation. While that is the lowest ranked classification a wine can be awarded and still enjoy vin de Bordeaux status, it has no pretentions toward being a Premiers Cru, nor does it come with the pretentious price of one. What it does purport to be is affordable, premium Bordeaux wine; something that has become a rarity the last forty years."

Planet Bordeaux's insight:

Focus on a Planet Bordeaux wine: 2010 Château Pey La Tour Bordeaux. Thanks to Wine Mizer for this wine review!

schiller-wine: Tasting Château du Cros and other Petites Bordeaux Wines with Winemaker Julien Noel at Calvert and Woodley in Washington DC, USA

schiller-wine: Tasting Château du Cros and other Petites Bordeaux Wines with Winemaker Julien Noel at Calvert and Woodley in Washington DC, USA | Planet Bordeaux - The Heart & Soul of Bordeaux | Scoop.it

Julien Noel is the winemaker at Château du Cros, Loupiac, France. Ever heard of Château du Cros? Probably not. Château du Cros is not one of the 300 or so winemakers in Bordeaux that produce a premium Bordeaux which sells en primeur for several hundreds of Euros per bottle. No, Château du Cros is one of the other 18.000 producers or so that are not in the limelight and that make so called Petites Bordeaux wines. As Christian Schiller highlights in this article, many of these petites Bordeaux producers offer very good value for the price.
