Item Description

  • Widely named respected and novel account of Bordeaux today
  • 4-color, extensively illustrated with maps and photos
  • Shortlisted for André Simon and Roederer wine guide awards

The last two decades have experienced a revolution in Bordeaux. Exactly What Price Bordeaux? gifts a unique summary of the forces making Bordeaux wine just what its today. The book considers terroir, how activities ranging from the phylloxera plague to global warming have changed the essential nature of Bordeaux, the secrets of this en primeur system, the increasing influence of oenologues and experts, the changing nature of the wine itself, and increase and fall of varied chateaux. A running theme is the powerful impact that the classification of 1855 continues to own in the chateaux of both Left and Right Banks, and this and the other classification systems are thought before concluding with a brand new classification regarding the chateaux based on the existing market.

Contents: Terroir and Typicité; A Sense of Place; the significance of Being Classified; Wine within the Time of Classification; The Land and Brand; Crisis and Prosperity; Winners and Losers; the price tag on Reputation; The Rise of Right Bank; the newest Bordeaux; Grand Vins and 2nd Wines; Plus Ça Change; Rational Classification.
