Buying Bordeaux doesn't have to be costly • Food and Wine

We direct your attention to wines classified as Bordeaux Superiore, one of 7 appellations d’orgine controlee or AOCs. These wines, aged at least a year in oak barrels, can be found throughout the Gironde and use the same grapes used in top growths. They may not have the complexity or pedigree of first-growths, but in 2009 they will be delicious for current drinking.

The renderings make it look a bit like a sore thumb, but the reality is more like a decanter, something you pick up and swirl to aerate the wine inside. This is meant to become a worldwide symbol for Bordeaux .

Plans were finally unveiled last week. The Center for Wine Culture and Tourism will be built on the old docklands of the Gironde riverfront near the city's northern border, with a budget of 55 million euros.

This year, I had the pleasure of hosting a group of 12 Hawaiians whose main objective was to discover the authentic side of our region. When contacted me, I was well meant they wanted rather eat farm-inns and stop in small family estates ...

 

After having put together a small tailor-made program, I hope they won't have been disappointed.

Organic wine growing gains ground in France

Organic wine growing gains ground in France | Welcome To Bordeaux and its wineries | Scoop.it

Organic wine growing is gaining ground in France where a Bordeaux Sauternes "grand cru", the highest classification level, has just been awarded the official biological farming (AB) logo.
Chateau Guiraud 2011 will be the first of the region's top Sauterne wines to carry the logo, some 15 years after one of its owners, Xavier Planty, first started to experiment with organic farming. 

  

An insect census of Chateau Guiraud's 100 hectares of vineyards found 635 different varieties, compared to fewer than 200 in "conventional" vineyards.The multiplication of insects which feed on vine predators has allowed Planty to dispense completely with insecticides since 2004.
While Chateau Guiraud was the first Bordeaux "grand cru" to experiment with organic growing, Chateau Fonroque, a Saint-Emilion "grand cru", was first to win the organic label in 2006.

 

French organic vineyards doubled between 2007 and 2010 and then increased again 28 percent between 2009 and 2010 to reach 50,268 hectares (124,214 acres).

Friday morning, the selected team of architects and scenographers presented to an assembly at Bordeaux city hall their design for the future... The shape of the future building is reminiscent of a pebble, smoothed by continual tides,..or perhaps a curvaceous wine decanter… It was in fact the ellipse of wine swirling in a glass that inspired the Parisian firm of architects, X-Tu, and the scenography company Casson Mann Limited.
