    Full Description

    This insightful book examines in detail the lesser-known wines of Bordeaux – the dry whites, the rosés (including Clairet), the sweet wines (beyond just the famed Sauternes) and the relative newcomer crémant, the sparkling wine which now represents almost 1.5 per cent of all Bordeaux wine. The White Wines of Bordeaux examines the history and evolution of these less well-known wine styles and colours, and profiles the grape varieties planted. It highlights the different terroirs and vineyards across Bordeaux, and spotlights the grower–producers, their stories and their wines, which occupy the emerging ‘middle’ in an area that has traditionally been polarized as cru classé or generic. The book identifies and discusses the challenges the region and its growers face and assess important catalysts for change such as climate change, new markets made by globally travelled younger generations, a focus on sustainability and wine tourism.
