For the 6th time in 10 years, our Merlot, vintage 2016, has been elected “Talent 2018” in AOC Bordeaux Rouge …
On Monday, the Bordeaux and Bordeaux Supérieur syndicate announced the winners of the 12 “Talent” laureates following a blind tasting.
From 9:30 am on Monday morning, it was journalists and students from grandes écoles who sat down for a great tasting of 64 vintages from Bordeaux and Bordeaux Supérieur. With a motto: that of choosing 6 wines in each of the two appellations. No particular criterion was imposed, except that of the pleasure of the tasters. Most of the selected wines have in common to present a price lower than 10 €.
