Bordeaux Week sponsored by Planet Bordeaux

Bordeaux Week: Palate PressNovember 10 – 16 is Bordeaux Week on and Planet Bordeaux is the sponsor. All week long, Palate Press will be publishing stories and reviews on the wines of Bordeaux, including those from Bordeaux AOC and Bordeaux Superieur AOC.

One such article is written by W. Blake Gray who recently visited Bordeaux on a media trip sponsored by Planet Bordeaux. You can also read Gray’s articles on his blog, The Gray Report where he takes a rather less serious view of the world of wine.

Bordeaux Week is a way for Palate Press to showcase the wines of this well established, yet often overlooked region. Bordeaux is arguably the world’s most famous wine region and produces more wine that the entire State of California. Much of it is under $20 and a great value for what you get. Which, as Blake puts it is, « 6th-generation family-owned wineries, passionate young winemakers, and distinctive red and white wines that are truly reflective of their terroir. »
