France vs New World: Bordeaux
Join us to review the contest that has been in full-swing for the past 3 decades, Bordeaux versus the New World.
At the forefront of the comparison lies the top first growths of Bordeaux against the boutique wineries of California, but the contest filters down throughout all the wines found in these two regions. In addition to comparing the Cabernet Sauvignons and Merlots of Bordeaux against the U.S we shall also look at Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. In addition we'll look at the Sauvignon Blancs and Semillons of Bordeaux against the New World. This echoes the famous Judgement of Paris Tasting in 1976...
