BDX: Up for Discussion

Hosted by Harpers Editor Andrew Catchpole and Richard Bampfield MW with a panel of industry experts and winemakers, these two webinars which will look at fresh, modern Bordeaux and what it means for both the region and the wine industry are a must for members of the trade wishing to explore modern Bordeaux in more detail.

Session 1: Modern Viticulture for Modern Wines
Thursday 2nd December @ 4pm

The first session will focus on the vineyard, looking at modern viticultural and sustainable techniques, new grape varieties, parcel selection and the resulting young, fruit-forward reds, whites and rosés being created to suit changing consumer demands.

Session 2: Modern Viniculture for Modern Wines

Thursday 9th December @ 4pm

The second will offer a deeper dive into viniculture. Maturation methods, blending, non-sulphur, lower ABVs, and how young, ambitious winemakers are nuancing new wine styles in Bordeaux are just some of the topics that will be discussed.
