Bordeaux is the original ‘wine blend,’ but it’s more contemporary and affordable than you might think

Are you bored with bordeaux and looking for new wines from far-flung places, a trendy “red blend,” perhaps? Our insatiable appetite for the new can lead us to yawn at the classics. We shouldn’t. Here are five things to know about this famed region.

Bordeaux needs to “come out of the closet”

Bordeaux needs to “come out of the closet”

Some people might say, “We have to get out of our comfort zone”. Bernard Farges, chairman of the Bordeaux wine trade council (CIVcool smiley, preferred to be a little more sensational. “Bordeaux must come out of the closet”, he told the press on March 10. With sales of 4.15 million hectolitres in France and worldwide in 2019, the region posted one of its worst scores in 20 years and declined by 12% compared to 2018.

Sluggish market for Saint-Emilion

Sluggish market for Saint-Emilion

“Last December, the market started off well. There was demand from trading companies accustomed to covering themselves early, but in early February, the market slowed down. The situation can be explained by wines blocked in the ports of Marseille and Le Havre that were on strike in January; the Trump taxes; the depressed Chinese market; and finally the coronavirus”, commented broker Gilles Prince. As a result, prices are falling: at the beginning of the marketing campaign, they varied from €4,000 and 4,500 €/ cask (the same price as last year), compared with €3,800 to 4,200 now.

A modest proposal for Bordeaux – release the 2019s next spring

With the world in the grip of a pandemic and with social and economic disruption spreading across multiple countries, now is the time for a radical shake up of the Bordeaux en primeur system and for the châteaux to offer their 2019 wines next spring and create a new template for the whole futures process.

Bordeaux En Primeur: “It is so frustrating not to be able to present the excellent 2019 vintage”

“Now two weeks into lockdown, it is hard to imagine that it should have been En Primeur week”, admits Émeline Borie, head of marketing for Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste (1855 Pauillac Grand Cru Classé). Cancelled due to the coronavirus, the major presentation of the Bordeaux vintage to buyers and critics from around the world, with the wines currently being matured, leaves a void full of uncertainty.

C’est une année à marquer d’une pierre blanche. Une première depuis que le système des primeurs existe. Ni les propriétés, ni la place de Bordeaux, ni l’Union des Grands Crus n’ont pu faire déguster dans les mêmes conditions que d’habitude en mars-avril le millésime 2019 aux journalistes, critiques et distributeurs français et étrangers. Une campagne primeurs qui pourrait malgré tout se tenir… Enquête de Côté Châteaux.

Report extract: An outlook for Bordeaux 2019

Bordeaux’s pricing of new releases has historically shown little correlation to the movements of the physical market. Release prices have instead been influenced by quality and quantity considerations and the critical view. Using the average Wine Advocate score as a proxy, the chart below shows a marked difference in the pricing of “on” and “off” vintages.

“Sémillon can be amazing and average,” says Pauline Lapierre Dietrich, winemaker for Château Haut-Rian in Bordeaux. It all depends on how winemakers treat it in the vineyard and winery, she says. Clone and site matter, as do yield size and vinification.

Understanding Bordeaux appellations

Bordeaux is a massive wine region, producing a wide variety of wine styles. As such, it’s useful to consider Bordeaux not as one place and one wine style, but at the sub-regional or “appellation” level. Developing a better understanding of individual appellations will help you buy better Bordeaux wines, whether as a professional wine buyer or a consumer.

Joss Fowler: Is 2016 Bordeaux’s greatest vintage of the century?

Joss Fowler: Is 2016 Bordeaux’s greatest vintage of the century?

Because the First Growths didn’t knock his socks off in 2016, Bordeaux expert Joss Fowler didn’t initially think that 2016 was as great a vintage as, say, 2005, 2009 and 2010. But what is interesting in returning to the vintage some years on, and re-tasting 267 wines, is how close are the ‘chasing pack’ of Second Growths; St Julien and Pauillac in particular were standout in 2016 with many estates producing their most memorable wine ever, which is surely a mark of a great vintage. Of all of these it was the Grand-Puy-Lacoste which was the wine that continued to haunt Fowler, weeks after the tasting in February. So how does it rate alongside the other 20 or so vintages?
