In this week’s podcast, sponsored by Bordeaux Wines UK, I head to the wine regions of Bordeaux to meet a couple of young winemakers causing a bit of a revolution.
First up is fifteenth generation winemaker, Benoit Trocard of Clos Dubreuil, who, against his father’s advice, was the first ever to grow Chardonnay in Saint-Emilion. I also chat to Coralie de Bouard who has used new technology and grape varietals in her own vineyard just down the road from the famous Chateau Angelus where she grew up.
Plus I talk to wine blogger, Coralie Strong, aka everyglassmatters on what to look for in Bordeaux wines. Find more about Bordeaux wines at www.bordeaux.com and for top tips for a trip to Bordeaux, take a look at Benoit’s foodie postcard, here.
