Bordeaux Up for Discussion
December 2, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm
The École du Vin de Bordeaux: Up for Discussion webinars are brand new this year and are a must for members of the trade wishing to explore modern Bordeaux in more detail.
Hosted by Andrew Catchpole (Harpers) and Richard Bampfield MW, these hour-long webinars will feature winemakers to share on-the-ground knowledge, whilst looking at fresh, modern Bordeaux and what it means for both the region and the wine industry.
Attendees will receive six wines (100ml samples) and a Zoom link to join Andrew and Richard who’ll discuss and explore how changes in the vineyards, and the wineries, are causing challenges, and opportunities for a new generation of winemakers in Bordeaux.
SESSION 1: MODERN VITICULTURE FOR MODERN WINES
When: Thursday 2nd December at 4:00 – 5:15pm
The first session will focus on the vineyard, looking at modern viticultural and sustainable techniques, new grape varieties, parcel selection and the resulting young, fruit-forward reds, whites and rosés being created to suit changing consumer demands.
SESSION 2: MODERN VINICULTURE FOR MODERN WINES
When: Thursday 9th December at 4:00 – 5:15pm
The second will offer a deeper dive into viniculture. Maturation methods, blending, non-sulphur, lower ABVs, and how young, ambitious winemakers are nuancing new wine styles in Bordeaux are just some of the topics that will be discussed.
