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

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.
