Wine collectors used to Bordeaux at $5,000 or more a case have been seeking variety at lower cost in other regions, including Ports from the newly-made 2011s in the Douro as well as more mature bottles.
The Perrodo family has launched an ambitious architectural project at Château Marquis d'Alesme Becker in Margaux that will open to the public in fall 2015 showcasing traditional French and Chinese building styles.
A third Cru Classé of the Médoc according to the 1855 ranking, Marquis D'Alesme had fallen in the Margaux hierarchy...
I'm always searching for wine bargains: wines that taste twice as expensive as they cost. Call it the thrill of the hunt, much like discovering a Versace designer dress marked down to 10% of its original price in a discount warehouse.
Excessive wine drinking has become such a problem in the U.K. that the government is actually pushing to redefine “wine” across the EU, but they’re encountering some pushback from other countries, including France and Italy.
I think the very best winemakers can become, let's say, restless in their own terroir. Michel Chapoutier has some of the world's finest plots of vine land on Hermitage hill. There's a challenge to maintaining the reputation of these wines, and Chapoutier could have remained a celebrated winemaker without ever leaving Tain, much as Justin Timberlake could have continued a perfectly respectable career with 'N Sync.
It was a hot, sultry evening in late July. You could sense a storm building, like a dark stack of whisky barrels in the sky, waiting for ignition in the small hours. If the 2013 vintage in France has a hallmark, it's violence from above: few regions have been spared catastrophic (though localised) hail and flood damage of the sort I described back on July 8th. This, though, is a happier tale.
I might be a decent journalist, but I am a very good cynic. That's why when I read the Wine Buisiness Monthly piece entitled Study Indicates Commercial Yeast Strains Take Over Fermentation, and then Tom Wark's , Wild Yeast Fermentation:There's No Such Thing, the reportage and interpretation smelled off.
Austria is in the middle of a red revolution, although one could argue that it has been a long time coming. It was in 1918 that the Austro-Hungarian monarchy collapsed; the first Austrian Republic came into being the following year.
Wine, as we all know, is about playing the long game. Returns on investments if you buy a vineyard are usually talked about in terms of decades - not dissimilar to the amount of time you have to wait for an expensive bottle of red Bordeaux to...
Tucked into the rolling hills between Chianti Classico and Chianti Colli Aretini is one of Tuscany’s most esteemed merlot vineyards on Luca Sanjust’s Tenuta di Petrolo. This isn’t an area typically associated with French varieties, despite the success of IGT wines throughout Tuscany and the south, but the family has been planting merlot here for 25 years nonetheless.
