Bordeaux En-Primeur 2007

Bordeaux En-Primeur 2007   30 Nov 2008

It seems that the curse of the 7 has struck again. For a good part of the last century vintages ending in a 7 have been difficult ones for the wine makers of Bordeaux. Those who follow the Bordeaux En Primeur campaigns may already have read a lot about this vintage, what follows is our thoughts following a visit to the Chateaux in early... more>

Alsace

Alsace   12 Oct 2008

There must be some wine producing parts of France that look on Alsace with absolute envy. Year after year they seem to produce great harvests after great harvests – look back over the last decade and you’ll see a long list of good to great vintages. Even the Alsatians could not do it again in 2008 – right? Unfortunately it seems... more>
