2008 Bordeaux White Wines Winners again

: With the coolness of the growing season and the resulting high acidity levels the white wines of 2008 seem to have a wonderful aromatic profile and freshness and even more concentration than 2007. Bodes well for the sweet wines too. They are in the process of being harvested. This is done by hand and takes place over a period of 6 to 8 weeks as the individual berries become affected by the ‘noble rot’ and shrivel to concentrate not only the sugar levels but the acidity levels too. Perhaps Bordeaux is going to be known for its wonderful white wines in the future. Forty years ago it produced more white than red….today it produces 89% red wine.

  1. Interesting take on white wines coming from Bordeaux. It will be interesting to track the trend. You might be interested in checking out our Bordeaux Week – you can find more details here: http://winedotcom.blogspot.com/2008/10/its-bordeaux-week.html
