The first sulphite-free organic wine by an 1855-classified Cru Classé

“The first natural organic wine with no added sulphites sourced from the vineyards of an 1855-classified Pauillac Grand Cru”, Cérès is one of the most innovative wines in Bordeaux, claims Château Haut-Bages Libéral. The 2020 vintage AOC Haut-Médoc “ticks all the boxes. It comes from a biodynamic vineyard with ground cover and trees in the vineyards. And what's more, it has no added sulphites”, says Claire Villars-Lurton, owner of the Grand Cru, who has a fairly high intolerance herself to sulphites.

How Crus Bourgeois 2019 is a real line in the sand for Bordeaux

It’s been two years since the Alliance of Crus Bourgeois du Médoc has staged a tasting event, last week’s London tasting being the first anywhere since Covid. In that time it has implemented a new 3-tier quality classification, got Latour’s ex assistant winemaker as its new president, and is set to host Good Wines Only, a tasting-music festival with 6,000 Parisians invited – to help prove that Bordeaux can be fun as well as simply traditional.

Sweet White Bordeaux Wine Gaining Attention From Younger Consumers And Gourmets

Sweet White Bordeaux Wine Gaining Attention From Younger Consumers And Gourmets

When most people think of Bordeaux, a big hearty red wine comes to mind. Yet semi-sweet and sweet white wines have been made in Bordeaux since the 16th century. Long considered to be only a beverage to sip after dinner, such as a sweet Sauternes or Barsac, there is another section of Bordeaux that is beginning to gain more attention for their sweet wines – especially from young consumers and gourmets. Created in 2009 by the Union des Grands Vins de Bordeaux Sweet, the 8 appellations that make up ‘Sweet White Bordeaux’ are gaining more traction in Europe, and making inroads into the U.S. market.
