I had an opportunity to travel to Bordeaux, France as a guest of CIVB , the Bordeaux Wine Bureau, tasting through the region exploring some of the many options the beautiful region has to offer, from both well known Chateau to hidden gems. I will have a detailed post up shortly, but before I left I was invited to attend a virtual tasting of Cru Bourgeois du Médoc wines, also from the region, celebrating a designation of high quality.
India Wine Cru Bourgeois du Médoc” designation of quality for wines from the region was used for centuries, though in more modern times it had almost completely faded away. In 2009 the region, located in the northern part of Bordeaux, with the support of the French public authorities, approved a new selective quality assurance procedure for the Crus Bourgeois du Médoc, announcing the decree to once again use the “Cru Bourgeois” designation as an assurance of high quality.
Wine In India Each year an Official Selection is sent for blind tasting and scoring in September by an independent body (the Bureau Veritas) on the basis of a defined set of specifications for wines from the 8 AOCs of the Médoc. The best wines from the year receive the designation. Here are a few to keep an eye out for, all of which are under $50, impressive for this quality Bordeaux. The 2012 vintages, currently available, are the third Official Selection wines since the new decree in 2009.
If you are a lover of port then you are going to really enjoy what's going on locally with my favorite winery. I think it's really interesting when you discover something in your own backyard and I feel very fortunate to live in Kansas.

To me, 2015 will go down as the year full of surprise wine trends and outstanding wine releases. The East Tennessee market is experiencing the greatest quality of wine selections in 25 to 30 years. You would have to go back to the mid-80s to find some of the best wine values of the world in Knoxville. The 1980s wine trends included the popularity of Chardonnay and wine coolers along with the discovery of White Zinfandel.
Wine Testing Tour India The 1990s brought the popularity of the 100-point wine scale and hard-to-find "cult" wines. The 2000s brought continued advancements of vineyard management, popularity of small boutique wineries, the death of Merlot and the rise of Pinot Noir.

But my point is that today's wine consumer has the ability to try wines from more places around the world than ever before. And the price-to-quality ratio is continuing to get better and better as more players enter the market.
