Garbage? Imagining a Better Future for the Soils of #Champagne | Vitabella Wine Daily Gossip | Scoop.it

Imagining a Better Future for the Soils of Champagne. In Champagne, like in many of the world's most famous wine regions, vineyard land has become egregiously expensive. According to winemakers I spoke with on my recent visit, one hectare (about 2.5 acres) now sells for more than 1.5 million euros. Prices for grand cru vineyards go even higher.

#Wine 's alcohol content affects flavor, texture

#Wine 's alcohol content affects flavor, texture | Vitabella Wine Daily Gossip | Scoop.it

When it comes to alcohol content, all wines are definitely not created equal. A German riesling may contain only half the alcohol of a riesling from California or Australia.

Anthony Rose: 'I'm not convinced that there's anything to be gained by splashing the cash on the #Bordeaux 2014 vintage' | Vitabella Wine Daily Gossip | Scoop.it

Buying two years before the wine is bottled doesn't just tie up cash but it's a gamble and worth it only in a great vintage, fairly priced. Judging by the critical reaction, 2014 is unanimously thought to be good, but not great.
