Why is it Château in Bordeaux and Domaine in Burgundy?

Why is it Château in Bordeaux and Domaine in Burgundy?

There are 10,000 of them in the Gironde, yet the term “château” only became widespread quite recently, in the 19th century. Why do we use this word in Bordeaux but not in Burgundy? History has played a part, but the answer also lies in the fundamentally different way these two types of French wine estates operate.

It's okay to love Chardonnay

Sorting out the misperceptions

Please excuse the title of this post. No one who loves Chardonnay need ever apologize for harboring a hankering for this varietal, the world's best selling white wine of any sort for going on 30 years. When it comes to wine, or anything of an artistic nature (art, music, literature, fashion, even cars!), you rule your own roost. To heck with what anyone else says.

Chardonnay et Kimmeridgien : l’identité du vignoble de Chablis

Chardonnay et Kimmeridgien : l’identité du vignoble de Chablis

Lorsque l’on pense au vignoble bourguignon, « Nuits Saint Georges », « Meursault », « Pommard » sont généralement les appellations qui nous viennent le plus spontanément à l’esprit. Mais n’oubliez pas qu’à 120 km au nord-ouest de Beaune, un autre fief du cépage chardonnay participe à l’identité de la Bourgogne : le vignoble de Chablis.

Can white Burgundy keep its iron grip on fine wine?

Can white Burgundy keep its iron grip on fine wine?

While there has been some talk of white Burgundy pricing itself out of the market, other premium whites are still “curiosities, rather than game changers”, say industry experts.

The United Nations of the wine world yet to vote on relocation to Dijon

The United Nations of the wine world yet to vote on relocation to Dijon

Confirming recent rumours, on 12 July France proposed to move the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV) to Dijon, in Côte d'Or. The capital of Burgundy has thus won its battle against rival candidacies by Bordeaux (Gironde) and Reims (Marne), but it has yet to win the relocation war from Paris to the countryside. “There will be no decision today, but at the next AGM in October in Dijon [on 25 October]. It's an offer, but no decision has been made”, said Monika Christmann, OIV’s vice-chair at the organisation’s nineteenth AGM by video conference in Paris.

Burgundy’s wine region banks on resilient older vines to cope with climate change

Burgundy’s wine region banks on resilient older vines to cope with climate change

The heavy frosts that descended on Western Europe in April hit Burgundy especially hard. News reports showed haunting images of frost candles lining the vineyard rows in an ultimately futile effort to keep nighttime temperatures around the vines from plunging to levels that would hurt the tender buds carrying the 2021 vintage. Damage estimates predict this year’s crop could be the lowest since 2003, when a historic, deadly heat wave struck Europe.

Why the Clos des Mouches is still Joseph Drouhin’s beating heart

Why the Clos des Mouches is still Joseph Drouhin’s beating heart

Every wine producer has a vineyard or site that gives that little bit more and works that little bit harder – with the wines produced from it being synonymous with the name of the estate. For the great Burgundy producer Joseph Drouhin that place is the Clos des Mouches, a 14 hectare vineyard acquired 100 years ago by Maurice Drouhin, that sits between Corton Charlemagne, Pommard and Puligny Montrachet. The red and white Premier Cru wines that come from this rare monopole are legendary in Burgundy, but that wasn’t always the case. In the 1980s the family realised the soil was dying and something had to be done quick to bring it back to life.

A Burgundy Wine Producer: Surviving Tariffs, Covid And 40% Loss Of Yields

The past year and a half has been a challenging one for many across the world with waves of the tide of coronavirus shutdowns, illnesses and deaths coming and going with intervals of brief breaks that would hint at normalcy here and there. No one can argue with the idea that this pandemic has been a devastating tragedy on many levels that has had a big impact on loss of life, on long-term health and the decimation of employment for many as well as livelihoods that were intrinsically part of business owners’ sense of self and main purpose in life.

Caribou Bones and Burgundy

Caribou Bones and Burgundy

Aged premier cru Burgundy was my first life-changing wine. I’d left Alaska by then and knew little of wine, but the first smell from the glass transformed me. For a moment it was like catching a flash of caribou soup. The nose swirled with those same smells: a light earthiness, just a touch of herbs and a hint of sweetness. In the mouth, it was delicate and light while overflowing with rich flavor. With its age, it even carried the same texture as caribou soup.

French Wine Producer Using Electric Wires To Combat Frost In Chablis, Burgundy

French Wine Producer Using Electric Wires To Combat Frost In Chablis, Burgundy

Very little sleep was had by Domaine William Fèvre’s cellar master Didier Séguier while he fought 20 nights of frost over a span of only 29 days in the Chablis wine region in northern France in April earlier this year. “And the temperatures were very, very low this year, around -8 Celsius [18 Fahrenheit],” Didier explained. In some vineyards they lost 50% of their potential grapes in vineyards where they were able to employ protection against the frost while other vineyards lost all of the potential for any grape bunches hence there was zero production. Even though Didier is very well-acquainted with frost, as it has become one of the most concerning issues for Chablis over the past six years, 2021 was still a shock in its relentless onslaught of severe freezing temperatures.

CHABLIS, France, Sept 22 (Reuters) - As harvest gets underway, winemaker Laurent Pinson looks at one of his top range grand cru vineyards with relief: by burning large 'candles' he protected the vines from sharp spring frosts that ravaged other parts of his estate.
