The Curse Of Bordeaux

The Curse Of Bordeaux

We splashed in the Saint Emilion lavoir, desperate to cool off on a 39-degree day in August. Yet this wasn’t when the weirdness of this broiling year really hit me. Nor was it as I surveyed ruined maize and sunflowers in the Loire days later, leaves burnt brown by months of record temperatures. The moment I realised climate change was an emergency was when I was driving on the A10 motorway and passed a convoy of German fire engines lent by the city of Bonn speeding in the opposite direction to tackle huge fires south west of Bordeaux.

Why is blending such a key part of making wines in Bordeaux?

This week, Bordeaux Wines was in the UK showcasing the art of blending wines in a series of immersive sessions titled Bordeaux Blend. In this series of trade and consumer masterclasses, participants were guided through the basic premise of how and why the vignerons of Bordeaux blend their wines before they were unleashed on test tubes and pipettes to produce their own special cuvée. We sent The Buyer’s Mike Turner, himself a certified Bordeaux Educator, along to find out why blending is so key to the wines of Bordeaux and also if his own blending skills were up to scratch…

How Bees And Bats Help Bordeaux Create High Quality Sustainable Wines

Did you know that bats eat between 500 and 1500 insects per night, and that bees are responsible for 80% of the pollination of plants for biodiversity? But what does that have to do with producing high-quality sustainable wine? In the Bordeaux wine region a group of enterprising winegrowers, with support from the Bordeaux Wine Council (CIVB.VB +0.2%), are conducting research studies to answer this question. These efforts are part of Bordeaux’s strategy to adapt to climate change and to reduce their environmental footprint.
