More on Bordeaux. They have been doing some interesting experiments at Château Margaux reveals The Wine Sleuth, an interesting wine blog. At a tasting in London Paul Pontallier, director and wine maker at the chateau, talked about his experiments with organic and biodynamic wine growing on part of the estate.
The participants tasted blind three wines, vinified in the same way but grown either conventionally, organically or biodynamically. The group’s preferences were evenly divided between the organic and biodynamic wine whereas the Wine Sleuth herself, Denise Medrano, immediately fell for the biodynamic wine.
Château Margaux is also experimenting with screw cap. Read more about it here and learn what a ”screwcapped” (as opposed to “corked”) wine is: WineSleuth.wordpress.com.
