Fashions in the wine business change over time, with the latest phenomenon being a lessening of the use of 100% new oak barrels for the production of fine wines.

Wine: Cab Franc deserves attention | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it
The Cabernet Franc grape is one of the least understood and most underappreciated of the major red grapes that go into a traditional Bordeaux blend. Somehow it has become the equivalent of Rodney Dangerfield in the world of wine.

I love Bordeaux, no smirking at the back, I really do. I love the wines and the intricacies of the region with its complex characters, its fascinating dynasties and, well, there’s no other wine quite like great Bordeaux.

Two second wines from 2000 – Sarget de Gruaud Larose and Dame de Montrose | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it

Two years ago, in a London restaurant, I had my first encounter with Sarget de Gruaud-Larose which is the second wine of Château Gruaud-Larose in Saint-Julien. It was a 1997, so not a spectacular vintage and already more than 10 years old and still, I was more than impressed by its quality.

The experts strike back? | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it
There’s something of a cottage industry that has emerged in trashing the reputation of wine experts. Richard Quandt of Princeton wrote an hilarious essay entitled “On Wine Bullshit.” Bob Hodgson had his two devastating papers about wine competitions. The Wine Trails books suggest high-volume, low-priced wines are all that you’ll ever need. The WSJ got in on the action too a while back.
