Bordeaux winemakers cope with climate change with newly approved grape varieties

Winemaking in Bordeaux has a long-standing tradition of blending a selection of permitted grapes to best effect. The enduring popularity of these wines has made cabernet sauvignon and merlot the most widely planted wine grapes in the world, but concerns about the future have opened the door to some new varieties to help combat climate change.

Bordeaux Aims to Protect its Future with New Grape Varieties

Bordeaux Aims to Protect its Future with New Grape Varieties

Climate change and rising temperature degrees are of intense interest to wine producers. With each degree that temperatures increase, higher alcohol-by-volume (abv) measures soon follow. Red wines that were 12% abv 30 years ago have crept up to 13.5%, 14.5% and even 15% in the 2018 Bordeaux vintage.

Médoc winegrowers want to get a taste of four new grape varieties, from the South and the past

Climate change and demand for less alcoholic wines have prompted a question – which grape varieties will be the new Cabernet-Sauvignon and Merlot in the vineyards of the Médoc? “It’s obvious that the climate is changing. Should grape varieties evolve too? We can't say what the future holds”, said a cautious Sébastien Couthures, a winegrower and chair of the technical committee with the AOC Médoc, Haut-Médoc and Listrac-Médoc producers’ organisation.

Bordeaux co-operative puts Rhone varieties in its Vins de France

Bordeaux co-operative puts Rhone varieties in its Vins de France

If ever one technique was associated with Bordeaux it is the art of blending. But that technique has been taken into uncharted territory by the Bordeaux Families co-operative group (formerly Union de Guyenne). Under the new Malette brand, the Louis Vallon and Sauveterre-Blasimon-Espiet wineries “are blending local grape varieties with varieties from other regions to avoid simply replicating Bordeaux red wine and labelling it Vin de France”, sums up Bordeaux Families MD Philippe Cazaux.

One Cru Classé reinvents Sauternes, with a sparkling wine and a rosé

One Cru Classé reinvents Sauternes, with a sparkling wine and a rosé

It’s not just a matter of vocation, “the strategy of a Sauternes classified estate is to produce stellar sweet wines” claims Didier Galhaud, deputy managing director of Château d'Arche. For the past year, his guiding question for the 1855 Sauternes Grand Cru Classé has been a crucial marketing issue: “Do my products meet market demand?” And although Château d'Arche’s sweet wines have taken a modern approach – with aromatic concentration and balance driven by freshness – market demand for Sauternes remains low.

Bordeaux vines get swept away in landslide

Bordeaux vines get swept away in landslide

One afternoon at the beginning of February, Jean-Christophe Darriet who heads up Château Dauphiné Rondillon in Loupiac, went to one of his hillside vineyards in Rondillon to prune his vines only to be devastated by what he saw – the wires were broken, the posts had been pulled out and there were substantial cracks in the ground. As a result of non-stop rain, a major landslide had occurred in two vineyards. On the first 1.5-hectare plot, the grower reported that half of the land had been significantly displaced and half a hectare was impassable. On the other 1-hectare plot, the headlands over one quarter of a hectare were totally destroyed.

Côtes de Bourg confirms its compulsory HVE certification

Côtes de Bourg confirms its compulsory HVE certification

On 25 February, the board of the Côtes de Bourg producers’ organisation confirmed the decision taken a year ago, on 6 February 2020, to make High Environmental Value (HVE) certification compulsory for all appellation companies from the 2025 vintage onwards. Following recent decisions by the national institute for origin and quality (INAO), the Bordeaux organisation now has the regulatory framework to include mandatory environmental certification into its specifications. The Côtes de Bourg appellation will only introduce mandatory HVE certification in 2025, when the obligation to do so is immediate according to INAO policy. The wine industry and the administration do not want a transitional period, but rather that a maximum number of producers be certified when the obligation becomes effective.

As I wrote in my 2018 Saint Julien barrel tasting report, the appellation should win an award for the most consistent Left Bank appellation of the 2018 Bordeaux vintage. Frankly, every wine I tasted was good. And not just the Grand Vin, the second wines were strong as well. In fact, just peruse my tasting notes and you can see the remarkable level of consistency with 2018 St. Julien wines.

2018 Margaux is not as homogenous as the other top appellations in the Medoc. In part, of course it is due to the massive size and diversity of terroirs. But it is also important to note that while Margaux is not always consistent, 2 of the wines of the vintage came from Margaux! It is interesting to note that the top wines are located primarily on the top peak of the Cantenac plateau.

2018 White Bordeaux wines are the product of a warm, very dry summer. At the end of the summer, temperatures remained warm and dry. While this was perfect for the red wine grapes, it was a little too hot and dry for the white wine grapes. Picking of the white wine grapes began in August, allowing the fruit to retain as much freshness as possible.
