Cos d’Estournel apporte un soutien de 100 000 € aux jeunes établissements de la restauration traditionnelle

Chose promise, chose due. Début juin, le célèbre château de Saint-Estèphe annonçait la mise en vente de son millésime 2019 en primeur et en même temps, Michel Reybier, son propriétaire promettait à l’Union des métiers et des Industries de l’Hôtellerie de reverser une partie des bénéfices liés à cette vente, en soutien aux restaurants mis en difficulté durant le confinement. 100 000€ vont ainsi être reversés aux plus jeunes structures, sans doute les plus fragiles.

Bordeaux 2019 by appellation: Sauternes and Barsac

The 2019 en primeur campaign is regarded as a surprising success. But its unique and exceptional character and its comparative brevity (with, at its height, 20 or 30 wines released each day) have posed significant problems for producers of Sauternes and Barsac. The market was looking elsewhere when these wines were released and even fewer cases than usual have been sold, writes Colin Hay.

Bordeaux marketing board to set aside wines from 2020 to reduce oversupplies

At its AGM on 15 July, the Bordeaux wine marketing council CIVB unanimously approved the introduction of a reserve stock aimed at “reducing the increase in marketable inventories of red Bordeaux and Bordeaux Supérieur appellations”. By adopting an amendment to the three-year trade agreement for 2020-2023, the CIVB is pursuing the objective outlined last year by chairman Bernard Farges, which is “to re-establish a balance between supply and demand for Bordeaux wines”.

Dry Spell Ahead for Château Climens

A Sauternes giant is moving away from the sweet path with its new cuvée.

Fair warning, this is a wine geek's story. I found it interesting and if you're of a certain mindset, you might also.

Château d'Yquem certified organic by 2022

Château d'Yquem certified organic by 2022

Announced as a matter of course on May 13, 2019 by Bernard Arnault, chairman of LVMH, the switch-over to organic farming at Château d'Yquem began shortly afterwards. The conversion is highly symbolic and the aim is to secure certification by the 2022 vintage. “We began the switch-over process on August 12, 2019, but we had already been testing organic treatments on half of vineyard acreage for two years”, says Sandrine Garbay, cellar master at the 1855 Premier Grand Cru Classé Supérieur chateau. The 2020 vintage proved to be extremely conducive to the onset of downy mildew in Bordeaux: “For our first 100% organic year, the weather certainly didn’t do us any favours!” sums up Francis Mayeur, Château d'Yquem’s technical director.

Merlot, Luxury Pomerol And Affordable Everyday Wine

Merlot, Luxury Pomerol And Affordable Everyday Wine

With 657,300 acres, Merlot is the second most planted grape variety in the world, after Cabernet Sauvignon (link to our grape profile of CS). It is the most planted in France. This should indicate that it is well-liked, both by consumers and producers. Nevertheless, Merlot has never really been in the spotlight.

Côtes de Bourg : le Ministre de l’Agriculture interpelé par des vignerons victimes de la crise

Côtes de Bourg : le Ministre de l’Agriculture interpelé par des vignerons victimes de la crise

Julien Denormandie est venu au chevet de la vigne et de ses vignerons. Le ministre de l’Agriculture a été reçu par un petit comité d’accueil qui vit actuellement très difficilement de son travail. Des vignerons exaspérés qui s’estiment au bord du gouffre, « la corde au cou », comme ils disent. Ils ont eu une oreille attentive du ministre qui souhaite des vignerons indépendants qui puissent vivre dignement de leur travail. Il a visité le château Grand Launay en biodynamie, à l’occasion des vendanges.

One of the greatest names in wine, few clarets command more global demand and attention than Lafite. It is no surprise, therefore, that the château’s wines are hotly sought after on release, and in the secondary market.
